Health Professionals in Maine (ME)
“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.
“As a Naturopathic Doctor it is my job to view my patients with a holistic perspective. Rather than chasing symptoms and individual body systems, it is important to seek out the root causes of illness and work at this fundamental level. I focus very heavily on educating my patients to understand their systems and construct long-term strategies for maintaining health. It is my goal to reduce my patients' dependence on any Doctor. My ideal patients are open to learning and examining health issues "out of the box".
“Melissa Roope is a Myofascial Release therapist trained by John F. Barnes. Myofascial release is a type of manual therapy that assists in relieving or eliminating pain in soft tissue. Melissa began her training in MFR in 1994, and is now an advanced practitioner.
“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.
“Breathe Easy Massageworks offers non-invasive injury recovery and wellness massage for revitalizing body and mind. It's a great joy and privilege to support the energy engineered by a person's inner resources, physical state, and conscience, as they respond to input and new proprioceptive awareness activated through their massage therapy treatments. Each massage therapy client is naturally unique and, therefore, unpredictable in her response to bodywork. Changes happen only with the client's willing approval. Because clients are active participants in the process, this positive and interactive approach allows change to be deeply integrated and easily assimilated.
“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.
“I am a massage therapist because I want to help people feel the best they can in their bodies. Whether it is to relieve stress or to reduce a chronic pain....I will do my very best to find the source of the pain and help reduce it. I work with my client's feedback so that I can work within their comfort zone for that session and get them to a place where they can feel a little better.
“I am a traveling massage therapist, bringing the benefits of massage into the comfort and convenience of your home and workplace. You can schedule an appointment for table or chair massage in your home, hotel, cottage, camp, or wherever you happen to be. Your workplace can sign up for ongoing chair massage. I also come to parties, showers and other gatherings.

“I have been licensed in Maine since 2/20/2002. I enjoy helping clients improve neuromuscular function and range of motion, reduce pain, and enhance relaxation and overall well being. Sessions may be as brief as a 30 minute spot treatment or seated massage or as long as a two to three hour full body tune-up, depending on what is needed. I work with clients to co-create an appropriate treatment plan. On site table and seated massage are available upon request for established clients.

My goal is to create a personal massage experience for all who are looking to expand their understanding of self-awareness. I develop relationships and mutual understandings with all my clients so everyone is comfortable and confident in me as a massage therapist. I offer a touch beyond relaxation.
“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.
“Are you looking for balance, rejuvenation and stress relief? Experiencing headaches, muscular pain? Or are you just not feeling like yourself? I would be honored to work with you on your health and wellness goals. Working with your goals and utilizing many different techniques of bodywork and energetic healing, I strive to provide your best and most healing session at each appointment. Modalities include shamanic healing, therapeutic techniques and craniosacral therapy to provide a well rounded approach. This combined with my education of a Baccalaureate in Health Sciences aids my knowledge base to work from.
“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.
“As the only Chiropractic Neurologist in Maine, I treat a variety of conditions: Migraines/Headaches; Disc Herniations; Chronic Pain; TMJ pain; Neck and Back Pain; Extremity pain; Carpal Tunnel; ADD/ADHD; Multiple Sclerosis; Fibromyalgia; Chronic Fatigue; Stress/Depression. Also, we are one of a select few that offer Cold Laser therapy as a treatment option.
“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.
“As an Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist, I offer support and get real results as patients move from a state of disease to greater ease in their whole self (body, mind, spirit). Healing occurs both within the treatment room and also as the patient learns to reconnect with their basic knowing of what supports health through their habits of diet, exercise, and lifestyle. Finding a good healer is like so many other important relationships in our lives - it encourages and supports us in growing toward our natural state of well-being.
