Adam Learner received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Colby College, and later received his Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM) from the New England School of Acupuncture, the oldest acupuncture school in the U.S. He is licensed and board-certified to practice acupuncture in both MA and NH, and is one of only a handful of people who are board-certified to practice Herbal Medicine in the state of New Hampshire.
His style of treatment has been deeply influenced by his apprenticeship with master herbalist Dr. Tao Xie, MD (China) L.Ac., from whom he learned powerful modern and classical strategies for treating many acute and chronic conditions, with a special emphasis on women's health issues and infertility. He is grateful for the opportunity to have studied herbal medicine under Dr. Tao, as such opportunities are extremely rare outside of China.
Additionally, Adam has studied advanced techniques for treating infertility with Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies, and is a professional member of RESOLVE, and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine.
He has pursued extensive training in working with cancer patients, and has achieved an advanced certification from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, one of the world's leading cancer hospitals. An accomplished speaker, he is regularly invited to give lectures on acupuncture, Chinese medicine, and healthy living at local hospitals, universities, and nursing schools.
Betsy Campbell Learner received her undergraduate degree from Colby College, and also received a Master of Acupuncture (M.Ac.) from the New England School of Acupuncture. She is licensed and board-certified to practice acupuncture in both MA and NH. Betsy has special interest in treating women's health issues and infertility; pursuing this interest initially led her to treat patients at Mount Auburn Hospital's Center for Women.
Betsy's gentle brand of acupuncture draws equally from both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the Japanese styles of Meridian Therapy and the pioneering work of Dr. Yoshio Manaka. Her training in these distinctly different styles allows her to design comfortable effective treatments to suit the individual needs of all her patients. She puts great emphasis on the special home therapy protocols (or "homework") that she regularly prescribes for her patients.
Amy Court has a B.A. in English from the University of New Hampshire, and an O.C.S.C. in Massage Therapy from the Swedish Institute in New York City. She has also trained in Thai Massage from the LotusPalm School, as well as with other Thai Massage Masters, and has done preliminary Reiki training (Reiki I). She has also completed a Pre- and Perinatal Massage Therapy course with Carol Osborne-Sheets, a leader in the field. Amy is nationally certified, and is professionally licensed in New Hampshire and New York.
Amy's career began in New York City, where she maintained a private practice along with being a massage therapist in several spas, athletic clubs, chiropractic offices, and private clubs throughout the metropolitan area. These various settings gave her the opportunity to work on a wide variety of body types and physical conditions. Since moving to the Seacoast in 2005 and obtaining her New Hampshire professional massage license, she has worked privately, part-time, while raising her son, who was born in the summer of 2006.
Amy's unique style of massage combines both Eastern and Western philosophies, and incorporates many different modalities, such as Shiatsu, Thai Yoga Massage, Swedish, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofacial Release, and many different ergonomic, deep tissue, and stretching techniques. Each session is tailored to the individual. Her intent for every massage session is benefit for the physical body, and balance for the body/mind/spirit connection. Her therapeutic goal for every client is physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
