Martin Herbkersman, MTOM, D. Ac, DIPL. OM practices acupuncture at the Palmetto Acupuncture Clinic in Columbia, South Carolina. He is an Acupuncturist (SC), a Doctor of Acupuncture (RI), Licensed Acupuncturist (CA) and is Board Certified in Oriental Medicine. He earned a Master's degree (MTOM) from one of the finest acupuncture schools in the country, Emperor’s College of Traditional Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California. This comprehensive four year program included rigorous academic studies in both traditional oriental medicine and Biomedicine.

Martin Herbkersman completed over a thousand hours of clinical study which included inpatient hospital training at Daniel Freeman Hospital in Marina Del Ray, California. In his hospital work, he spent a six month rotation in an integrated medical setting working with Medical Doctors and Nurses treating a wide variety of illnesses in the transitional rehabilitation, addiction, and psychiatric wards. His work in the Community Clinic was just as rewarding and busy, treating hundreds of patients with conditions from the acute common cold to the most serious stages of cancer. As he completed his clinic and hospital work he and his wife Scarlett, and their three children, decided to rejoin their families in South Carolina, bringing with them this amazing system of medicine. He and his wife have since added a fourth and fifth child to their family. Currently he treats patients full-time in his clinic on Bull Street and he is working with Dr. Whitman-Elia, a fertility specialist, to enhance the efficacy of conventional fertility treatments to improve outcomes with Assisted Reproductive Technologies. He has also worked with the Army's Warriors in Transition Unit (WTU), treating the physical and mental pain that our soldiers have endured during their time in service to our country.

Martin Herbkersman has over 11 years of clinical experience and is National Board Certified (NCCAOM) in Acupuncture, Herbology and Oriental Medicine. He is currently one of the very few practitioners in South Carolina to be National Board Certified in Oriental Medicine which requires additional training and a comprehensive knowledge of Biomedicine and herbal medicine, as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine. He worked diligently for a new law governing the practice of acupuncture in South Carolina and his work has paid off. This new law legally defines and increases public accessibility to acupuncture, and protects the people of South Carolina from unqualified practitioners by requiring National Certification in acupuncture and high minimum standards of education. He is currently the chairman of the South Carolina Acupuncture Advisory Committee to the Board of Medical Examiners. He also served as President of the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM). He holds licenses in California, Rhode Island, and South Carolina.
