Dr. Elizabeth Doane, LAc

  • Dr.
    Elizabeth Doane

    Dr. Elizabeth Doane DACM, L,Ac, practices in our Scarborough office. She earned her Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) in 2012 from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA. The MSTOM is an intensive 4 year Chinese Medicine training program consisting of over 3,500 hours of both academic and clinical training. Her internships involved both onsite and offsite clinics, including a partnership with the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Medical School. In 2016, Dr. Doane furthered her studies completing her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (DACM), becoming one of the first acupuncturists to achieve their DACM in Maine.

    Dr. Doane earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Southern Maine (USM) in Portland.  While pursuing her B.A. Elizabeth discovered her passion for natural medicine and healing while working at Lois’ Natural Marketplace and completing her minor in Holistic Healthcare at USM.

    Dr. Doane is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in the state of Maine, certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).  She is a member of the Maine Association of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (MAAOM), and the American Acupuncture Association of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AAAOM).

    In addition to her training in Traditional Chinese Medicine, she has received additional training by the late Dr. Richard Tan in distal acupuncture, known as Balance Method. This unique system is rarely administered to the site of injury, allowing clients to move the affected area to experience immediate pain relief, increased flexibility and range of motion. Dr. Doane also has training in a gentle form of acupuncture known as Japanese Meridian Therapy, which uses ulrathin needles, and often described as painless.

    Dr. Doane spends most of her free time with her daughter, Charlotte. In the warmer weather she enjoys hiking, biking, and relaxing out at her family's house on Great Diamond Island. On most Sunday mornings you can find her practicing yoga at her favorite local studio, as she finds breath work, movement and meditation to be an integral part of like.
