Alaine D. Duncan, M.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl.Ac., SEP

Alaine Duncan is an acupuncture clinician, educator and researcher. Her work integrates the wisdom of Chinese Medicine with the study of neurobiology and traumatic stress in the classroom and the treatment room. This passion has carried her heart and hands to places and people she never imagined when she graduated from acupuncture school in 1990, and completed Somatic Experiencing training in 2007.

Her book, The Tao Trauma: A Practitioner's Guide for Integrating Five Element Theory and Trauma Treatment is the foundation for classes and workshops she offers for acupuncturists, somatic psychotherapists, medical professionals and bodyworkers.

Alaine was a founding member of the Integrative Health & Wellness program at the DC Veterans Administration Medical Center where she served from 2007-2017. Her research background includes serving on studies assessing the impact of integrative medicine on compassion fatigue in military caregivers; the use of acupuncture for the treatment of combat-related traumatic stress, chronic headaches in OIF and OEF Veterans with traumatic brain injuries, pain in Veterans of all conflicts, and for Gulf War Veterans Illness.
