Abram received his Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture, the oldest college of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine in the United States. During his time at New England School of Acupuncture he studied with several renowned acupuncturists, including Ted Kaptchuck, author of the classic text The Web that Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine. Originally from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia where he grew up in an intentional community, Abram completed his undergraduate studies at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. While at Guilford, Abram studied abroad in Beijing and encountered Traditional Chinese Medicine. He later returned to Beijing after school and continued to his studies of Chinese language and culture.

"Abram Ojure treated me for Polymalgia Rhuematica. My pain was so severe, I could not perform simple activities of daily life. I could not sleep nor get out of bed easily. In a short period of time, my pain began to subside. I am please to say I am completely pain free. Everything he told me in terms of my treatment was accurate. He continued to treat me for for weight loss and to achieve optimum health. I have lost 40 pounds and feel wonderful. I truly recommend Abram he is a knowledgeable caring professional who helped me get my life back." - Barbara R. (from yelp)
"I have been seeing Abram for acupuncture for a few months now and have seen such a huge improvement in my migraines, energy levels and stomach issues. He is patient, caring, very knowledgeable and a great listener. I have been prescribed many different medications over the years but acupuncture (as well as herb's recommended by Abram) has worked better than anything from my doctor. He also takes time to suggest and educate me on other lifestyle changes I should make to feel my best. While everyone's needs will be unique, I would highly recommend Abram to anyone that may be considering acupuncture. I have complete faith in his practice and I'm very grateful for his knowledge and treatments." - Meg. F (from yelp)
"Abram is a true healer. Not only is he deeply knowledgeable about both acupuncture itself and Chinese herbal medicine, he is also endlessly kind, compassionate and supportive. He shares his thinking about best approaches to my very complicated health condition, listens carefully to what I tell him, and has successfully treated my pain, and a host of imbalances resulting from the pain, the medications I was on, the side effects of those medications, which included severe digestive problems, palpitations, anxiety, insomnia and more, and the symptoms of my withdrawal from narcotics. He combines knowledge, intuition, curiosity, and attentive, respectful listening, and has made a huge difference in my quality of life." - Auorora L. (from yelp)
