Ludwig Kragler, M.Ac., L.Ac., ADS

Chinese Herbal Medicine


Ludwig graduated from the University of Maryland - College Park with a B.A. in Psychology in 1998.  He earned his Masters Degree in Acupuncture from the Tai Sophia Institute in 2006.  He then continued for over 2 years studying Chinese Herbal Medicine with Cara Frank at the Tai Sophia Institute and received his Certificate in Chinese Herbs in 2007.  He then completed his Doctorate in Oriental Medicine in December of 2016.  Ludwig loves how Chinese Medicine focuses on the physical body, emotions, mind, and the Spirit of a being, not just on one single piece, we are whole.


Ludwig has worked in the Addictions and Mental Health field for the past 10 years.  He leads educational groups on Addictions and Mental Health concerns with adults and adolescents, focusing on adolescent development. Ludwig has treated many people for symptoms of addictions, depression, and especially anxiety.  And been able to help people reduce their need for medications, safely, through partnership with ones physicians.


Ludwig has been working with adolescents for the past 15 years as well.  Focusing on ways to treat illness and dis-ease without the use of medications.  With early intervention through Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, most adolescents have not needed to take pharmaceutical medications.  There are many concerns that adolescents grow through, acupuncture is one tool to serve them through all of this.  Symptoms of anxiety, anger, depression, PTSD, emotional or mood disorders are just a few issues that Ludwig has helped treat through Chinese Medicine and lifestyle choices.


Ludwig has been very successful in treating people for symptoms of Restless Leg, Chronic Fatigue, Allergies, Auto-Immune Disorders, Digestive Disorders, Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Carpal Tunnel, Addictions, Migraines, Any PAIN Disorder, PTSD, Gynecological Disorders, and feelings of being Lost.  Please help me to add on to this list.  I believe Chinese Medicine can help treat everything.


Ludwig has studied Aikido and Aikijujitsu for over 15 years, earning the level of Nidan (2nd Degree Black Belt).  He currently studies Tai Chi and Ba Gua also, and practices many forms of Qi Gong to cultivate wellness and health.  He has spent the last 3 years working towards and earning a Masters in Medical Qigong.


He thoroughly enjoys spending his off days with his 10 year old and 7 year old.  During what free time he may have, he continues to cultivate his knowledge and practical skills from the infinite wisdom that Chinese Medicine has to offer.
