Before Douglas Weinstein was ever a professional acupuncturist, he was a patient. As a young man, Douglas had his first encounter with acupuncture when he was just 19 years old. Over the course of several treatments, Douglas experienced drastic improvements in his seasonal allergies and asthma, along with a surprising reduction of his stress levels. This experience inspired Douglas to pursue a career in acupuncture and herbal medicine and eventually to open a Wellness Center, where he provides the same level of high-quality care for individuals, who otherwise would not have been exposed to this kind of alternative treatment.
Douglas received a Bachelor’s degree in Public and Community Health from the University of Maryland with a citation from the University Honors Program in 2004. In 2005, he began his career in the integrative healthcare field, studying acupuncture at the prestigious Maryland University of Integrative Health. Douglas received his Master’s degree in Acupuncture in 2008. He furthered his studies by completing a 3-year post-graduate program in Chinese Herbal Medicine. Later, Douglas received his second Master’s degree, which was a Master’s degree of Oriental Medicine.
Douglas enjoys running Live Well Medicine and treating a wide variety of patients. He is proud to be married to a Western medical provider, which he says helps to balance his perspective between Western and Eastern medicine. Together, they have a young son, who regularly benefits from the wonders of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
Brian began his career in healthcare at Northern Arizona University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He has extensive experience working in the mental health and addiction field, where he has enjoyed working with people of all age groups and backgrounds. It was this work that lead him to discover the field of acupuncture and how effective it can be in healing both the mind and the body. This discovery was thanks to the talented acupuncturists he met and was later mentored and healed by, coupled with his desire to connect to his own Chinese roots.
Brian soon went on to attend the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, where he obtained his Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine, as well as a certification in the Chinese Body work known as Tui Na. Brian later became board certified in Oriental medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
More recently, Brian moved from his home state of Arizona to join our practice, Live Well Medicine, in Hershey, PA, where he shares his knowledge and expertise with his patients.
Albert Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.” Brian does not like the idea of getting stuck as a healer, so that is why he constantly learns and finds new tools and skills to help others with. He strives to help others who are motivated to transform and renew their minds and bodies and not conform to the patterns that cause them to get sick and feel stuck in their lives.
NCCAOM. She has been practicing acupuncture since graduating from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2015. Beth has worked both in public health settings giving group treatments, as well as in private room settings in acupuncture clinics.
Beth considers time with a patient as sacred time for balancing the body,
mind, and spirit to create harmony and clear any blockages that may be
preventing health and well-being. Beth likes to include bodywork and other modalities in her acupuncture treatments, especially Tuina massage, cranial-sacral work, cupping, gua sha and moxibustion. The treatments are specialized for each patient every time a patient comes into the clinic. She also views each series of treatments as a collaboration, in a sense, between the provider, the needles, the herbs, and the patient.
Beth has a special interest in treating diverse patient populations. While she is a general acupuncture practitioner, she enjoys focusing on the treatment of chronic and acute pain, women’s health, digestive disorders, insomnia, anxiety, depression and PTSD. Of particular interest in Beth’s work is the intersection of emotional and physical pain and how to “loosen the knot” so that the patient can live their fullest life.
Beth also has a background in fine art and dance and has a Masters of Fine Arts from the
University of Oregon. She has had professional shows of sculpture and printmaking nationally. This creative and intuitive way of looking at the world informs the way she practices acupuncture and prescribes herbal medicine. Beth enjoys yoga, meditation, qigong, hiking and gardening. She continues her studies with the Ling Gui International Healing Qigong School with Master Liu He and Dr. Liu Dong. She loves to share Daoist concepts for better health with lifestyle and dietary choices that work with the seasons.
At home, Sheena lives with her husband, Tim, and three lovable kittens. She enjoys making art, reading, hiking, road tripping and being a cool aunt to her three awesome nephews.
