Hello! Aloha and Welcome! My name is Lindsay MacDougall and this is my healing practice in acupuncture and wellness coaching.
Before I go on, here is what people are saying:
I feel really amazing Lindsay! As the day is going I feel my neck loosening up and the pain is almost gone. You’re incredible! I love every minute of our time and your depth of interest in the body. – J.
One thing that’s good about your treatments is we are working to a better state of my overall wellness. I was so run down before that everything pushed me over the edge and my symptoms would quickly return. That isn’t happening anymore because I feel how incrementally I have been getting better overall. – D.
I consider myself a very skeptical person, but the results I received after treatment were such a drastic difference from before that I can only call it magic! – J.
You stay in the room and are always present to my needs as they arise. – K.
This is the best I’ve ever felt. I can do the things I used to! I feel normal again. – J.

Currently I am serving the community at OurSpace Community Acupuncture clinic as a substitute in Silver Spring, MD on Silver Spring Ave. I also see patients one-on-one.

I have an NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) state board-approved acupuncture license in the state of Maryland, a Yoga Alliance 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in process with yogini Neva Ingalls of Inner Domain Yoga in Cabin John, Maryland, as well as a Level 2 Reiki training.
I practice other forms of healing art such as coaching, spirituality, shamanic medicine, Angel Therapy and astrology.
My favorite things to do are write, listen to music, play my ukulele, learn foreign languages, meditate, dance, and do yoga. I crave matcha lattes, kimchi, and something (anything) homemade.
People say I have a healing presence, and a gift for healing. Follow me on other social media outlets at the handle @LindzMacDougall.
I take my work very seriously and I believe this medicine can solve every woe that ails. Acupuncture is often called “complimentary care” to mainstream Western practice. It can save years of pain, uneccessary surgeries, and unnecessary drugs with all their expensive procedures, difficult side effects, and money-driven systems of making money off of illness that are common in Western medicine solutions.
With acupuncture there are no harmful side effects, no toxins, no added addictions. Acupuncture is good old-fashioned feel-good medicine that is blissfully all-natural. Each treatment is specific, individualized, and serves to clear, detoxify, and wake up and harmonize the body’s physiology in nature. Health is the restoration of this movement and flow. Without movement, there is death. We are here to feel alive!
Treatment involves various points on the meridians as well as other natural modalities for who are suffering from pain or who just want to feel a boost of health and vitality.
“Meridians” termed here are the acupuncture meridians, the energy pathways throughout the body (pictured below) which generate and move chi. Chi is the Chinese term for ‘life force’ (‘prana‘ is a synonym from Ayurvedic tradition).
It’s a medicine of personal empowerment, calling back your energy back from leaks and unconscious patterns, creating more ease, expanding comfort in the body, and giving the body system a potent opportunity to RELAX and REPAIR cells, tissues, blood toxicities, brain chemical imbalances – in what will most likely be the most productive nap you will ever experience. And it does this naturally in the optimal way the chi is best flowing – pulling the body into parasympathetic rest, digest, repair and restore mode.
The more consistent you are with treatment the better the body has a chance to restore its homeostasis and its healing response, especially in the first 4-6 weeks with a weekly or bi-weekly treatment. This is especially the case if coming in with acute conditions or with chronic issues that have become too difficult to bear.
Acupuncture heals us in Here and Now with a pervading sense of wellness. This in turn circumvents the things we unknowingly (even in good intention) do to complicate our lives, making our symptoms worse. We got stuck in our nature along the way and we didn’t know the right path for ourselves. The body is always trying to heal itself, and with acupuncture, we get to step out of the way and let nature flow, teaching us all we need to do to help ourselves out.
Acupuncture cured me from debilitating migraines, and possible hypothyroidism. My life changed with this medicine. It satisfied me on all levels down to the core of my being. It only took one treatment for me to experience significant results, although everyone is different. I completely stand behind this medicine in the years I have received it from various practitioners and given treatment to many more who have found many far reaching benefits and positive all-natural side effects. As our society gets more complicated and cluttered, more and more people are finding acupuncture to meet their far-ranging needs.

I love to post weird and funny stuff on social media and share my experiences as a healer because the internet is so rich with weird funny stuff (that is cool), and I feel it is my duty to spread love!!! I have always loved museums, and was into a lot of library science back in the day and I curate everything I post. I feel like having this blog to marry those creative outlets will help inspire you in your own creative process too!!! Please join me by signing up for my newsletter and let’s work together!
