Brendan Armm, M.D.

Dr. Armm is a board-certified Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicinal Herbalist both in the state of California and nationally. He is among the first fifty practitioners nationally to have completed a clinical Doctorate in Orthopedics, Pain Management and Integrative Medicine. In addition to Dr. Armm’s practice with and founding Lotus East-West Medical Center, he teaches Oriental medicine and meditation to the master level students at Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine. While becoming a licensed acupuncturist, he was named Student of the Year, an award presented by the American Association of Oriental Medicine given only to the top student in the country. To enhance his clinical education, Dr. Armm completed a year long doctoral fellowship at Good Samaritan Hospital in downtown Los Angeles, a two year internship under Dr. Zhiyou Qiu, LAc, MD (China) at Emperor’s Doctoral Pain Management Clinic in Santa Monica, and an externship at the Venice Family Clinic. He graduated at the top of his class at both Emperor’s College and Wesleyan University receiving both schools’ highest honors. Originally from Connecticut, Dr. Armm comes from a family of doctors. He grew up pursuing his western medical dream including assisting in the emergency room at Bridgeport’s St. Vincent’s Hospital, performing research in Immunology and Dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine, shadowing a Cardiologist at Bridgeport Hospital, and working in his father’s Urological private practice. Being exposed to disease and suffering led Dr. Armm to the practice of meditation to cultivate compassion. Over the next six years, he embodied the value of treating the whole individual and not just the disease. Then, a six-month journey through India opened his eyes and heart to the multitude of holistic healing modalities available around the world. It was also by virtue of other holistic healers that Dr. Armm moved to Santa Monica to study Chinese Medicine at Emperor’s College.

Lotus East-West Medical Center is an environmentally friendly, holistic, primary care medical center. We bring together acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, allopathy/osteopathy (medical doctors), and psychology/psychotherapy to provide you the best possible care. Our intention in healing goes beyond treating a symptom. The symptom is often an apparent sign of something that is going on much deeper in the body. Our goal is to strengthen your body’s own ability to heal itself, in a manner that is least invasive. We treat your health concerns by addressing the symptoms and their underlying causes. We have succeeded when we have brought your mind, body, and spirit back into balance.
