He also has trained extensively in Muay Thai boxing and western boxing. He trains his body and mind daily not only to strengthen himself, but to help arm his patients with knowledge and power to improve their lives and the lives of their family and friends. Dr. Mancini is truly passionate about Oriental medicine, nutrition, athletic and psychological performance. He offers something that is unparalleled. His primary goal is not to treat sickness or disease but rather improve the quality of health and life of his patients. His focus as a primary health care provider is to emphasize education in the areas of psychology, exercise, diet and lifestyle. With this intention, his patients become empowered in their own health and well being.
