Edward Z. Saloma

Serving El Paso Since 1998

Edward is one of El Paso Texas's respected acupunturists.

He completed his course in Acupuncture Therapist Program at Northwest Institute of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine at Seattle, Washington in 1993. Following that year, he earned his Master of Acupunture degree with flying colors from the same institution. With the eagerness to create a special identity among any other acupuncturists, he took up other related courses such as Adult & Pediatric Tuina, Japanese Shiatsu, Therapeutic Massage, nutrition & other supplemental trainings.

A former Philippine Bantamweight Champion (1973-1974), This boxer knows how to maintain an athletic & healthy body. At his age, he still helps some young aspiring boxers here in El Paso & Philippines as well.

Edward served the country for quite some time as an Army Nurse prior to his Acupuncture career. He Realized that the field of Medicine that he was in before only focuses on "Quick Fix" & "Temporary Relief." Medicines & drugs are their main arsenal to combat sickness while surgery is the easiest way to remove any abnormal growth in the body.

Combining all his knowledge, skills & powerful products like food supplements, herbs, awareness & proper use of our body, Edward affirms that we can recover from any kinds of health problems. But above all, Edward believes that God made him as an instrument to educate, heal & improve any person's well-being.
