About My Practice

I, Dr. Benjamen Clancy, DAOM, L.Ac. have practiced acupuncture and Chinese medicine since 1998. I became interested in alternative medicine when I was seventeen. I was in a life threatening motorcycle accident, at which time I received acupuncture, physical therapy, chiropractic care, and multiple successful surgeries for my injuries. A driver pulled her car across the four lane highway and stopped in my lane. I was traveling the speed limit, 45 mph, and hit her car broadside. Although I was wearing a helmet, which more than likely saved my life, I broke almost every bone in my face, including my jaw in three places, and crushed both of my upper arms. My right third, forth and fifth fingers were completely paralyzed. With a combination of excellent care I made a complete recovery. I was impressed with the results, and so were my medical care physicians.

After high school I began my career in healthcare as a Licensed Massage Therapist. I attended Sarasota School of Massage and was awarded a License to practice Massage Therapy. Wanting to further my education, I attended the Sarasota School of Natural Healing Arts and was awarded a Master’s in Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 1998. I have practiced in Florida, Indiana, and Kentucky since that time.

I went on to earn a BA in biology and a minor in psychology from the University of Louisville. In 2014 I chose to further my education in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, with a specialization in Women's Health and Geriatrics. I attended the prestigious Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Achieving the Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine degree (DAOM), graduating in 2016.

I have a great passion for working with people who have difficult health conditions, including fertility issues (male and female), women’s health conditions, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), Endometriosis, autoimmune, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal diseases.

In keeping with my training, I use many methods and tools including Traditional Chinese medicine, Tung’s style acupuncture, and Chinese herbal medication. I have enjoyed a thriving practice, working with and helping hundreds of people over the past eighteen years with a wide variety of ailments. I look forward to speaking with you, and together, we can tackle what is ailing you. Thank you for your interest.
