Mark Whalen, Owner & Acupuncturist
Mark Whalen is the owner and acupuncturist at Five Points Acupuncture & Wellness. Mark is a licensed acupuncturist and board certified herbalist. He specializes in the treatment of pain, fertility, migraines and digestive disorders.
Mark went on to graduate from the New England School of Acupuncture in 2005 with a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He is certified in Acupuncture by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine and in Herbal Medicine by the NCCAOM.
He first became interested in acupuncture while he was a patient. Facing an unwanted surgery for a nerve entrapment, Mark turned to acupuncture and not only did it resolve his issue, it changed his life. After having his issue resolved, Mark became fascinated by the philosophy behind Acupuncture and in the whole body approach it offered. His acupuncturist in Texas, originally from Korea, told him of a school in Watertown, MA. Mark drove by the school everyday for years and never knew it existed. So Mark packed his bags and headed back to Massachusetts to go back to school. The rest, as they say, is history.
The goal of Mark’s clinic is to help as many people as possible overcome their health challenges through natural methods. Mark believes there are five key areas of health that need to be optimized- Sleep, Stress, Pain, Digestive health and weight management (blood sugar balance) for a person to thrive. Mark believes in integrating the traditional Chinese Medical model with modern Allopathic Medicine to get the best results for his patients.
In his spare time, Mark enjoys spending time with his wife and children. He enjoys live music, reading, studying, and loves a good comedy.
