Pete Taylor, MAOM, Dipl. OM, AP

Acupuncture Physician & Herbalist

Pete Taylor has a lifelong passion for traditional medicine, as well as martial and meditative disciplines such as tai chi, qi gong, and zazen.

Pete has studied traditional medicine extensively. His Master of Arts in Latin American Studies focused on indigenous ritual and medicine, particularly plant medicines. During these studies, he was inspired to move beyond a strictly academic focus and pursue a career in the healing profession. To this end, Pete studied Oriental Medicine at Dragon Rises College.

Prior to becoming a practitioner at Gainesville Holistic Healthcare, Pete founded and practiced at Deep Root Medicine. When he realized how closely his goals and philosophy aligned with Traci Pettigrew’s vision, he joyfully chose to join the GHH team.

Pete holds an MA in Latin American Studies from UF and a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Dragon Rises College. He is NCCAOM board certified in Acupuncture, Biomedicine, Oriental Medicine, and Chinese Herbal Medicine, and licensed by the State of Florida as an Acupuncture Physician.
