Richard A Connell, DOM, LAc

Richard is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Maine. He is nationally board certified (NCCAOM Diplomat status) in Oriental Medicine. He has many years of experience successfully treating many common and complex health issues with Acupuncture and related techniques.
“It seems that a lot of my patients find me after they have tried almost everything else. Nothing has helped or worked as well as they hoped or they didn’t like the answers they received from other healthcare providers. Maybe they didn’t like the drugs or painkillers they were prescribed. These are the cases that I thrive on. I love the challenge and am usually up to it. It is extremely gratifying to me to be able to help people with health problems that they thought were beyond help or that they feared they just had to live with.”
Prior to practicing acupuncture, Richard Connell practiced Eastern Medical Massage and Asian Bodywork. Richard graduated from East-West Healing Arts Institute in Madison, WI with a specialty in Asian Bodywork and Eastern Medical Massage. He also attended The Wat Po Traditional Medical School in Bangkok, Thailand, where he earned his Certification in Traditional Thai Massage.
