Before Douglas Weinstein was ever a professional acupuncturist, he was a patient. For 10+ years, Douglas has experienced the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese medicine as a patient. In 2001, Douglas had his first encounter with acupuncture, experiencing a drastic improvement in his seasonal allergies and asthma along with a reduction in his stress levels, while undergoing wellness treatments. Since then he has used acupuncture to maintain his health, feel great, and further reduce stress.
In 2004, Douglas graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor’s degree in Public and Community Health. In 2005, Douglas began his career in the integrative health field, studying acupuncture at the Maryland University of Integrative Health. Douglas received his Master’s degree in Acupuncture in 2008. He furthered his studies in Chinese medicine, by completing a 3-year post-graduate program in Chinese herbal medicine in 2011. After obtaining his certificate in Chinese herbal medicine, Douglas became a teaching assistant for the next class of post-graduate Chinese herbal medicine students. In 2014, Douglas received his second Master’s degree, which was a Master’s of Oriental Medicine. Subsequently, he became Nationally Board Certified in Oriental Medicine by the N.C.C.A.O.M.
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.
