Jose Vargas, L.Ac. Biography

José Vargas Ton graduated with his Master’s Degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from the Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine after acquiring his BS in Psychology from the University of Arizona in Tucson. He followed several well-known licensed acupuncturists in Tucson for several years before returning to his hometown in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, to provide health services to the community.

During his youth, José spent part of his childhood between clinics and hospitals, both in the United States and in Mexico. He underwent more than 20 surgeries and interacted with numerous patients and specialists in the natural and conventional medical areas. These experiences motivated him to pursue a bachelor’s degree of psychology to understand human conduct, habit, and lifestyle before graduating with his Master’s degree. José has previously worked in Education, as a teacher, in a non-profit organization, as a social worker, and as a psychologist’s assistant.

He has studied and lived abroad twice and boasts numerous years of volunteer experience in the healthcare setting. He is passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle and improving people’s health conditions through an integrative healing medical approach to cultivate mind, body, and spirit.
