— If you’re in pain, or even just want to align your body’s processes, and you don’t have a fear of sharp, pointy things, Frank Turano-Cutler is more than happy to needle you in the right direction.

Operating under the business name Healing Path for the two years, Turano-Cutler has been practicing the art of esoteric acupuncture since 2008. “I feel like everyone has their own path with their healing,” he says. “My job is to help facilitate people with what they need.”

His process attempts to identify a spiritual reason for his patients’ pain and lead them down a healing and healthy path, physically and mentally. He thinks of himself as just another tool someone might use in his or her personal journey toward recovery and self-betterment.

“Acupuncture can make tremendous shifts for people,” Turano-Cutler says. “People usually show up for pain, but I try to help one step further with diet, sleeping habits and exercise. Then I go even further to help identify an ethereal reason for their hurt with the body-mind-spirit connection.”

He says the traditional Chinese practice is an “art based on science,” and he feels he’s able to communicate the more technical and philosophical aspects of his treatments in an understandable and relatable way.

“I can relay some of this stuff in a more digestible way,” says Turano-Cutler, who moved the offices for Healing Path Acupuncture to the Old Pilot Building at 310 Lincoln Ave. in October. “I’m still very much grounded in sports like snowboarding, hiking and soccer.”
