Meet Rob Weingeist, the visionary behind Acupuncture Iowa City and a dedicated Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine serving the greater Iowa community.

A proud native of Iowa City, Rob graduated from Iowa City High School in 1998. He pursued his passion for learning at The University of Puget Sound, earning his Bachelor's degree in 2002 while enjoying competition at the national levelĀ  on the varsity tennis team.

His journey into Chinese medicine began after experiencing remarkable relief from chronic shoulder pain through acupuncture at the Ahn Clinic in Coralville. Intrigued by this transformative experience, Rob embarked on a path to master Chinese medicine, completing a rigorous 4-year Master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2008. To honor his mother's memory, he furthered his expertise by completing the Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine program at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in 2017.

Following his academic achievements, Rob expanded his horizons in Cambridge, Massachusetts, launching his acupuncture practice while intensely training Pin Sun Wing Chun Kung Fu and Qigong Meditation with Sifu Jim Roselando. Together with his brother David, Rob co-founded the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Qigong Club and was able to explore the essence of Southern China first hand with his brother and teacher.

Beyond his specialization in acupuncture, Rob's diverse expertise extends to serving as a Certified Ophthalmic Assistant, collaborating with esteemed ophthalmologists at renowned institutions like Tufts, Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, and Harvard Vanguard Visual Services.

Recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as an accomplished acupuncturist and Chinese herbal medicine practitioner, Rob returned to his roots in Iowa City in 2014, licensed by the Iowa Board of Medicine to practice acupuncture.

Melding his academic foundation with extensive training in Eastern practices of qigong meditation, Chinese martial arts, and nutrition, Rob firmly believes in an integrative approach to healing. He collaborates seamlessly with MDs, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists, fostering comprehensive wellness for his patients.

Outside his practice, Rob finds joy in exploration, traveling across the USA and abroad. An avid enthusiast of tennis, pickleball, biking, and fly fishing, he treasures moments shared with his father and brothers amidst nature's tranquility.
