Acupuncturists in Maine (ME)
“My philosophy in treating patients is not only evaluating the signs and symptoms of a disease, but also looking at the person as a whole entity with imbalances causing “dis-ease”. I also believe in the powerful connection that happens between the patient and the practitioner, in that connecting to the patient is an integral part of the healing process. My special interests include chronic pain, arthritis, woman’s health (including pre-natal, pregnancy & delivery), addictions, gastro-intestinal disorders, and mental/emotional disorders.

“THE TYPICAL PATIENT THAT I SEE IS ONE THAT WANTS TO SPEND AN HOUR WITH A PHYSICIAN. WHO IS LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THAT THEIR PERSONAL PHYSICIAN DOES NOT HAVE THE TIME TO GIVE. THE PATIENTS THAT I SEE IN CONSULTATION ARE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER OPINON OR AN ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT PROGRAM USING A HOLISTIC AND NUTRITIONAL APPROACH THAT INCLUDES ACUPUNCTURE. THE USE OF SUPPLEMENTS AND OTHER NUTRITIONAL MODALITIES RATHER THAN PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION IS RECOMMENDED WHEN EVER POSSIBLE . HOWEVER WESTERN MEDICINES ARE OFTEN THE BEST CHOICE FOR MANY PATIENTS. AS A MEDICAL DOCTOR I HAVE THE ABILITY TO PRESCRIBE BOTH.
“I offer community style acupuncture at Life Ideals in Lewiston, ME. Community acupuncture is a way to expand the availability of acupuncture to more people. Patients meet individually with me at the initial appointment. Follow up treatments are in a group setting. This is much like how acupuncture is practiced in Asia. This style of acupuncture allows patients to relax with the needles as long as they need to. Many people stay 30-60 minutes, while some stay more than an hour. This practice is one of only a few community acupuncture clinics in the state.
“In addition to acupuncture, my practice includes tui na and other Oriental Physical Therapy, herbal medicine, and tai chi. My experience as a healer predates my acupuncture degree and includes many forms of massage, intensive study and practice of tai chi (and now teaching), meditation and work in hospital physical therapy rehabilitation (working predominantly with stroke patients).
“I am a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and a Licensed Acupuncturist. My unique education is complementary based in both Eastern and Western medicines. I hold a Master's degree in Chinese Herbology and have worked to receive advanced certification in treating immune dysfunction. As a general practitioner, I provide one-stop healthcare to the entire family. Some of my areas of experience are in Digestion, Gynecology/Obstetrics, Pediatrics, Orthopedics and Liver disorders. I have also seen great results with auto-immune disease, pain management, allergies, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, weight loss, candida, as well as a myriad of other health concerns.
“My interest in acupuncture began in 1986 after I first received treatment. My positive experience led me to want to study the tradition and to offer it to others. The foundation of my practice is in Five-Element Acupuncture. Continuing education has led me to other treatment forms that work well with the Five-Element tradition. Since 2004 I have been certified as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist working with addictions. Since 2006 I have been certified as a Zero Balancer. I use Dr. Tan's Balance method for pain relief. I enjoy working with both children and adults, and employ acupressure and non-insertive needle techniques for those who would prefer an option to working with the needles. My approach to treatment is to hold each patient in their wholeness, working from a place that sees human beings as an integral part of nature made up of complex relationships between their anatomy and physiology and their emotional and spiritual bodies. I listen and respond to the body's systems as uniquely expressed by each person to address imbalances and restore health and well-being. With improved balance in the body's systems, the quality of your life will be enhanced.
“Acupuncture is a safe, effective, and natural form of healthcare that will get you feeling your best. Treating a patient is not just a matter of giving someone acupuncture. All aspects of your wellness are addressed, from stress management, and exercise, to diet and simple lifestyle changes. Watching patients reclaim their health, and seeing the immense changes that transpire over weeks or months, is truly phenomenal. Many patients come to me after "trying everything else," and it's great to be able to give them the relief they've been searching for.
“I take a no-nonsense approach to the healing arts and expect positive outcomes. In addition to providing high quality treatments, I work in partnership with my patients, empowering them to make lasting changes in their health profile by implementing simple, effective principles of Chinese Medicine into their daily lives.

“My individualized approach to acupuncture, Chinese herbs and Facial Rejuvenation is one of practitioner/patient collaboration which creates a gentle, attainable path to success. I work with each person to create a comfortable, supportive wellness plan that achieves the most effective results. I often integrate cupping, moxibustion, yoga, Tai-Chi, Qigong, dietary therapy and essential oils into treatments, allowing for a more holistic healing process. I work with people who have physical and/or emotional pain. This includes allergies, asthma, sinusitus, women's health, arthritis, auto-immune diseases, gastrointestinal issues, headaches, smoking cessation and insomnia.

Acupuncture in Maine (ME) - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Maine (ME) acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.
Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into a number of trigger points on your body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.
'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
