Brent Garcia is Your Elite Body Mechanic

He is an acupuncturist, massage therapist, and herbalist specializing in the treatment of pain, chronic anxiety, and mood disorders.

Brent’s journey to becoming an acupuncturist and licensed massage therapist started on the soccer pitch. Soccer was a huge part of Brent’s life. He played competitively from the age of six through his late 20s, even after having his left ACL surgically repaired during his freshman year of college.

However, starting in 1999 he began to suffer a chronic Achilles tendon problem that made running painful and left him limping for two to three days after any game or training. He consulted an orthopedic surgeon, and his recommendations didn’t help much. Brent started a search for other ways to reduce his pain, increase his range of motion, and restore the freedom to live his life.

Therapeutic muscle-specific massage, sports massage, and bodywork all helped him run again. He completed his first 5K race in July of 2010, a decade after playing competitive soccer, and today his body functions at a much higher level than it did even seven years ago, because he is still combining many holistic, effective modalities to ensure his overall health. Therapeutic massage, self-maintenance, and bodywork produced the results he was looking for.

Brent’s introduction to acupuncture came when it allowed him to quit smoking over 15 years ago. He got to experience firsthand the power and potential of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Brent was so impacted by the power of TCM that he chose to study and practice acupuncture, East Asian Medicine, and bodywork so others would not have to go through the pain that he had.

He combined all the above mentioned therapies to become the Elite Body Mechanic he is today. His insight and expertise can and will help you to live a better life.

He graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine – Chicago (now the Pacific College of Health and Science) in 2012 with a massage certificate, and in 2015 with a Masters of Science of Traditional Oriental Medicine. He completed his Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in 2023.

Brent also is an Adjunct Faculty member and Clinic Supervisor at the Pacific College of Health and Science (formerly PCOM) in Chicago.

His interests included film noir, reading, and strength training.


“I view individual problems in the body as inseparable from the whole person. My goal is use all my combined skills to help each person I work with to reconnect to that innate truth, and to live their highest possible life.”
