About DOC

“Healing is actually a very simple and naturally occurring process.”

Doc is widely recognized in the Chinese Medicine community for his skills in Asian Bodywork (specifically Tuina and Medical Qigong). National certification by the AOBTA (American Organization for Bodywork Therapies of Asia) authenticates his level of education and stands as his license to practice in Texas in accordance with regulations set forth by the Texas Department of Health an Human Services. 

“I have keenly observed Nature and natural phenomena for a lifetime. I found that corresponding principles apply implicitly to the human condition and lend infinite understanding to health, healing and the causes of illness. This level of understanding fostered a complete healing system I call Sacred Healing Tree. The name emerged primarily due to the fact that the principles for gathering and dispersing energy for healing purposes have been cultivated from the careful observation and study of the most vital living organisms on Earth- trees.”

Doc’s keen observation, strategic approach, and inquisitive nature eventually led to the study of idiopathic disease. His independent clinical research resulted in an ingenious new therapy for a rare form of cancer  (pleomorphic lipocarcoma).  One article slated for publication relates to the Chinese Medicine diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and its relationship to the Heart. Another discusses manual manipulation of the eyeball to reduce ocular pressure in cases of acute angle closure glaucoma. One of Doc’s most unique and widely read articles authoritatively discusses the origins of ticklishness and its clinical significance. 

Steven “Doc” Blackstone is a military veteran (USAF) hailing from San Antonio, Texas. His nickname doesn’t come from numerous academic degrees. It comes from the affinity his many clients have for him and the respect they have for his knowledge and dedication to serving others through his profession. Therefore, Doc is called upon in much the same way as the wise and experienced country doctors of the Old West… counseling on everything from baby’s first cold to where to find the voltage regulator on a ’69 Firebird. From a modest office in the heart of Alamo Heights he performs the most remarkable work. Some of which confounds medical doctors to this day.

Doc’s pastimes include horseback riding, tinkering with vintage cars and riding motorcycles. He plays guitar and Native American flute in addition to being an award winning martial artist, accomplished artist and  photographer.
