Daniel J. Atchison-Nevel has been an innovator in the fields of holistic health and acupuncture since 1982.

That year, he and his wife Jane Atchison-Nevel co-founded one of the country’s first comprehensive collaborative health centers, the South Florida Healing Arts Center in Miami Beach, Florida.

In 1987 Daniel & Jane organized what was to be called  “one of the pioneering events in American acupuncture history”, the International Acupuncture Symposium held in San Francisco, California. In 1989, Dan served as the founding academic dean for the Community School of Traditional Chinese Healthcare, an acupuncture college in North Miami, Florida. In 1999, Daniel and colleagues conducted research in conjunction with Florida International University on the effect of acupuncture’s extraordinary vessels on depression.

Dan founded and co-chaired Acufest: A Festival of Healthy Living, an innovative, community wellness celebration held Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida. The inaugural event was attended by more than a thousand people and brought together every Florida acupuncture college, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and local and national educators .

Daniel currently serves as Clinical Director of the NSEV Healing & Acupuncture Clinic in his hometown of Miami Beach, Florida.
