Steven Mavros, L.OM., MAOM
Steven received his Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and began his Oriental Medical training interning at YueYang Hospital in Shanghai. There he got to see first hand how powerful medicine can be when you combine the ancient Eastern ways with modern Western medicine. He went on to complete his Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the New England School of Acupuncture in Watertown, Mass.
Steven started his career in the free clinics of Dimock Hospital and the AIDS Care Project in Boston before opening a private practice in Philadelphia, PA. He now co-owns the Healing Arts Center of Philadelphia, a group wellness center that integrates mainstream and complimentary medicine all under one roof. In 2011, Steven marked his 10 year anniversary of being in practice.
Though he maintains a varied practice, his main focus of infertility has led him to be featured in Philadelphia Magazine, Philly Style, and CBS Health Watch. He pioneered bringing Acupuncture to every major fertility clinic in the Philadelphia area and has helped bridge the gap between the local Reproductive Endocrinology and Acupuncture communities.
