Dr. Kathleen Bartlett, DACM, MSTOM, LAc, one of only three Doctors of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in the state of Maine, manages a growing practice with clinical success rates higher than reported acupuncture studies. Hundreds of pain–free patients credit her with helping them heal on multiple levels.
“I provide effective treatment for those suffering from pain and illness.”
She gives patients undivided attention during their complete treatment, that usually alleviates pain during the first session. Dr. Bartlett incorporates a multipronged approach to treatment, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and NAET, Nambudripad’s Allergy Ellimination Technique. An accomplished herbalist, Dr. Bartlett maintains a complete herbal pharmacy in her Scarborough clinic. “In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) we use herbs, rather than drugs, to treat disease. I compound individualized formulas for ninety percent of my patients.”
Dr. Bartlett studies with many respected herbal authorities, including TCM dermatologist Mazin Al Khafaji, Taiwanese herbalist and pulse master Dr. Jimmy Chang, Planetary herbalist Michael Tierra, herbal classic texts with Dr. Min Fan of Beijing University, Ken Morris, founder of the Institute of Chinese Herbology and master herbal cultivator, Joe Hollis of Mountain Gardens, providing a strong foundation in Chinese herbal medicine and multiple approaches to treatment.
Dr. Bartlett sees her patients’ complexities as opportunities to highlight the body’s natural ability to thrive, when given the right support and conditions. In treating her patients, she is not only helping them heal, but also growing as a doctor.
“The most difficult cases challenge me to learn new treatment strategies. I can’t sit back and rotely repeat tried and true protocols. I am forced to thoroughly re-evaluate what I am doing, re-work the treatment plan, and implement new methods and techniques. ”
