Tudor C. Marinescu, MD, PhD, is a holistic family medicine physician with extensive credentials in cranial and biodynamic osteopathic manual medicine, herbal cures and vibrational medicine.
He was born in Transylvania, Romania and started medical school in Bucharest. After the fall of communism, Tudor was given the opportunity to complete his medical studies at the J.W. Goethe University School of Medicine in Frankfurt, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in Medicine from the H. Heine University in Germany. In 1995, he came to the US for advanced training. He completed a one-year surgical internship at UCLA and a three-year Family Medicine residency at USC. He holds a certificate of Proficiency in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field by the Osteopathic Cranial Academy and is part of the teaching staff of The Osteopathic Cranial Academy.
Tudor went on to pursue an extensive post-doctoral training focusing on the creation of a multidisciplinary, integral healing system reflected today in his philosophy and practice of medicine.
As part of his pursuit to understand more about life and healing, shortly after coming to the US, Tudor began his study with indigenous elders from North American tribes — Apache, Lakota, Dakota, Picuris Pueblo as well as Pacos from the mountains and the jungle of Peru. He also studied with Elders and Medicine Keepers from Dano, Burkina Faso. The return to the simple and natural ways of life and living in balance with all-our-relations according to Creator’s Law was emphasized in the day-to-day life and also in the ritual and ceremonial space. There was no separation between the secular and the spiritual in these tribal ways as both were deeply intertwined and flowing seamlessly into each other.
