"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 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."
"I offer a holistic approach to healthcare for people of all ages, even for babies as young as 2 months! I have a background in massage and have extensive experience working with all kinds of pain. Over the past 6 years, I have seen the ways that acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine empower my patients to take charge of their health. Again and again, my patients report significant reduction in symptoms, less pain, better sleep, better immune systems, and an improved overall sense of well-being. I also love working with women during pregnancy and with menstrual cycle issues."
"I offer community style acupuncture at Androscoggin Community Acupuncture in Lewiston, ME. What is Community Acupuncture? The short answer is that Community Acupuncture offers acupuncture in a setting where multiple patients receive treatments at the same time to help expand access to acupuncture and reduce the individual cost per treatment."
"Rising Tide Acupuncture was established to provide an effective system of personalized health care for individuals seeking to improve health, prevent illness, and enhance their overall quality of life. My goal is to create balance and stimulate the body's inherent ability to heal itself. Whether you are suffering from pain, stress, infertility, or just want to improve your overall well-being, we will work together to create a treatment plan specific to your needs."

With a background in both Eastern and Western medicine Stephanie focuses on treating the Root of dis-ease to cultivate Wellness."
"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 focus on treating pain, both physical and emotional. My practice combines acupuncture (traditional Chinese and orthopedic techniques) and Naturopathic medicine. You will receive treatment that is specifically tailored to you. This will include acupuncture, western herbs, and nutritional supplements. This medicine works with the body's natural healing abilities to strengthen your system and treat the root cause of your condition (so your symptoms go away and stay away.) Patients see relief from addiction, pain, anxiety, insomnia and more!"
"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."
"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."
