In an effort to create a more comprehensive holistic approach to healing, Dr. Hoover founded SOHMA Integrative Health Center™ located in Long Beach, California. He merged the School of Healing Martial Arts into SOHMA to bring together ancient wisdom with modern practices.
After studying and teaching the martial arts for many years, Dr. Hoover decided it was time to learn how to heal with his hands. He found it fascinating that many of the points used to strike an opponent are the same points used to treat injuries and illness with acupuncture. This understanding is what sparked his interest in the healing arts and further exploration into the concept of Yin and Yang and Tai Chi Chuan.
We are passionate about patient-centered care, research, and combining ancient wisdom with modern practices.
