While studying pre-medicine & behavior science at the University of Utah, Regan was unsure of the techniques of modern western medicine, and thought that there must be a better way for patients to reach their full potential and well-being. He first learned of the benefits of Chinese medicine while taking a History of Medicine course. After much research he went to see the medicine in action and began studying with acupuncturist Tao Tan in Sandy, Utah. After seeing the incredible benefits of traditional Chinese medicine and studying with Tao Tan, Regan decided to invest his time in learning eastern medicine.
Regan attended the Traditional Chinese Medical College of Hawaii and in 2004 earned his Masters of Science in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. He also spent three years apprenticing with world renowned acupuncturist and founder of the Traditional Japanese Acupuncture Association, Dr. Chieko Maekawa PhD, DAc. In 2004 he also became the first person in the United States to be certified in Seitai Shinpo, which focuses on structural techniques of acupuncture. Currently Regan is one of only 23 individuals to have this certification. He is also a speaker for David Singer Enterprises and coaches acupuncturists on how to build successful practices.
Regan is one of the founders of the Seitai Shinpo Acupucture Foundation. He is also affiliated with the Foundation for Wellness professionals where he voluntarily holds lectures and seminars in order to educate the community on health and well-being. In his approach to healthcare, he focuses on restoring harmony to the body and helping patients heal themselves.
Regan spends his free time with his daughter Zoe and his son Jonah who love joining him in the outdoors snowboarding, hiking and mountain biking. He also enjoys yoga and capoeira, and helping people reach their full potential and well-being.
