Welcome to Healthy Balance! A place to find health, balance, and well-being.

Healthy Balance Acupuncture, LLC is an acupuncture and Chinese medical clinic located in Portland, Maine. The business’s primary service is providing acupuncture and Chinese herbal treatment for allergies, PMS, headache, depression, arthritis, stroke, sciatica, hypertension, low back pain, tennis elbow, digestive problems, postoperative pain, neck pain, knee pain, and many other conditions.

Other services available at Healthy Balance Acupuncture include cupping, tuina (massage), moxabustion (herbal heat therapy), gua sha, and Chinese herbal therapy. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is a complete holistic medical system that looks at the human body as a whole. Chinese Medicine offers a natural approach to health care with fewer side effects than Western medicine.

Healthy Balance Acupuncture’s goal is to offer holistic health care which takes into account each patient’s unique situation and whole being. Our approach is to focus our efforts on women’s healthcare, chronic pain, and the mental/emotional needs of the community.

Healing involves cleaning the house, changing the guard. Sometimes, the choice will require us to go through something which may appear to be painful, but in the end, will be seen as release.

If you’ve ever had the experience of falling in the water, not being able to swim, and then somehow returning to shore, you will know how deep is the sense of release that can be found.

It is inevitable that whenever there is a cleaning of the house, the dust goes somewhere. It may flutter around for a while. The movement of dust can take any number of forms. Our concern is not with those forms, but with having found the sacred ground. Sometimes, during healing, there seems to be an intensification of symptoms. The cleansing has moved from where it was rooted deeply to where it is rooted less deeply, and then finally, to where it is gone. We will be able to feel this happening within us. It should not be understood to be another version of the illness, but rather an expression of the cure.
