Welcome to Dr. B’s Wellness Clinic 
Your Path to Holistic Health

About Dr. Brian Caswell


In my roles as a Primary Care Practitioner in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Dr. B’s Wellness Clinic and as the Academic Dean and Professor at East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, I've had the privilege of engaging with countless patients and students over the years.

In our conversations, a prevailing concern has consistently emerged, with many expressing disillusionment with the Western Medical System and the broader practice of medicine. 

Common Grievances with Western Medicine:

  • Feeling disregarded and unheard

  • Extensive waits in overcrowded waiting areas

  • Prolonged waits for brief appointments

  • Rushed medical consultations with unanswered inquiries

  • Difficulty in securing appointments

  • Lack of understanding of the fundamental causes of ailments

Many people, patients and even many of my students express growing disillusionment with the Western Medical System and the broader practice of medicine.

Individuals consistently express their exhaustion with various aspects of the conventional medical experience. They're tired of feeling unheard, gaslit, and leaving rushed appointments with unanswered questions and a sense of frustration.

If you share these sentiments, know that you are not alone.

Our Approach: A Different Medical Experience

My goal as both a practitioner and teacher has been to offer something different. I offer an opportunity to gain genuine answers and effective solutions for your health issues.

  • Expert in His Field: Have access to the practices of Acupuncture, Chinese, and Functional Medicine by a leading expert in the field. 

  • Prompt Responses: Your emails, texts, and calls are promptly answered by me, Dr. Brian Caswell (Dr. B)

  • No Crowded Waiting Areas

  • Ample Time for Consultation:

    • Initial appointments of 2 hours

    • Follow-up treatments of 1 hour

  • Comprehensive Explanations about your medical condition and current medications

  • A Personalized Approach to address the root causes of your health issues

  • HSA Saving Account; use your HSA savings account the way you would like. As an investment towards your health.  

What if you could explore alternatives that might liberate you from the synthetic pharmaceutical cycle? It's a chance to break free from the exhausting cycle of consulting different practitioners without addressing the root causes of your issues.

Let's work together to tackle and resolve the underlying problems contributing to your symptoms.


Welcome to a holistic approach to your health at Dr. B’s Wellness Clinic.

Intitial Intake



Initial Intake

During the initial intake, we are going to deep-dive into your medical history and utilize in-depth, Functional Medicine questionnaires that cover areas such as food, environment, stress level, supplements, and even comprehensive laboratory tests (blood, urine, stool, and saliva testing) if warranted.  I will then combine this with an equally detailed Chinese medical diagnosis to formulate the best treatment plan.  

After the initial evaluation, a trial course of Acupuncture is recommended. This usually consists of four to six visits during a three or four-week period.  If the patient is experiencing acute or even chronic pain, I personally expect to have a 20 to 30% reduction in pain after the first treatment.  How long this reduced pain lasts varies from patient to patient and depends on the patient’s overall health and various other cofactors.  Acupuncture has a cumulative effect, with each treatment building upon the last.

Treatment can include Acupuncture, Cupping, Gua Sha, and Tui Na (Acupressure Massage). Although each treatment, as well as, each patient is unique, not every treatment will include all modalities listed above.

Follow Up

1-hour session to evaluate patient progress, refill prescriptions and continue herbal therapy and nutritional guidance. For patients receiving acupuncture, this will be included within the context of return acupuncture appointments.

Treatment can include Acupuncture, Cupping, Gua Sha, and Tui Na (Acupressure Massage). Although each treatment, as well as, each patient is unique, not every treatment will include all modalities listed above.


Herbal medicine from China has been used consistently for over 3000 years. Each herbal formula is personally crafted to complement your treatment plan and custom-fit your detailed medical diagnosis.

As a classically trained Master Chinese Herbalist, Dr. B prepares classic and customized herbal formulations for acute and chronic medical symptoms.  Customized herbal formulas are then ordered through an online pharmacy and get shipped to your house within a few days. 


Nutrigenetics/nutrigenomics, the study of the relationship between gene expression and nutrition, proposes that disease can be prevented and reversed by drastically altering the nutritional environment. (Mutch DM, Wahli W, Williamson G.)

Nutritional Therapy uses food to prevent and reverse diseases that plague most western societies: diabetes, obesity, heart disease, arthritis, and depression. In order for food to be therapeutic, it must be nutrient-dense, measured in part by the nutrients and anti-nutrients, contained in consumed foods.

Dr. B knows that there is no one best diet for everybody. There are no absolutes when it comes to our food, during the initial intake we go over some of the best options for what best serves you and your needs.

My name is Brian Caswell or Dr. B and I hope to help people like you. 



I am a nationally board-certified primary care practitioner practicing in the state of Florida as an Acupuncture Physician (AP or DOM), and a proud St. Petersburg native.


I graduated with a Masters of Science in Classical Chinese Medicine and Herbal Medicine from Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medicine in Asheville, NC, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Tennessee. 


Over the last decade, I have worked with countless numbers of patients through some of their best and worst of times. I work with every patient to create an individualized comprehensive plan that encompasses Classical Chinese Medicine and Functional Medicine. This can include acupuncture, lifestyle, diet, nutrition, genetic research, environmental stressors, herbal, and neutraceutical supplementation, and other modalities to help in restoring, or discovering for the first time, optimal health and wellness.  

The lineage from which I studied under and continue to honor is my mentor Master Yuen, an 88th-generation Daoist priest from the Jade Purity School, Lao Tzu sect, and a 26th generation priest of the Complete Reality School, Dragon Gate sect. 


My goal and my passion, are to combine this ancient wisdom and lineage of Classical Chinese medicine and fuse it with the most up-to-date Functional medical practices of the modern age.

When I am not in the clinic. I find my comfort in nature and good food, woodworking, and refurbishing old stuff found in the craziest of places. I am a father as well as a partner to a very hardworking lady, who is a mother first and a dedicated nurse second. I am striving this year to read actual fiction novels for fun as well as pausing more to appreciate and be gracious for what I do have. 


I look forward to working with you and learning your story.
