"Have gotten some AMAZING results since coming here. Less pain in my neck, back and knuckles. It’s really AMAZING! It is the only way I can explain it because I don’t understand how it works (LOL)) Thanks so much."

D.S. - Topsham

"I found Whole Health Acupuncture online. Because I have Lyme, Lupus, Sjogren's Syndrome, Graves and Celiac, I wanted to get help without drugs. I feel better and I only have to take one pill a day for my thyroid. Acupuncture is amazing and I highly recommend it. Elizabeth is awesome! I now have my husband coming with great results for his back."

D.S. - Topsham

"I had SO much energy yesterday afternoon and night, and even into today. Thanks for the fabulous treatment! : )"

"Elizabeth, I am so amazed with the mobility I have with my shoulder after your treatment!!! I can clasp hands behind my back with no pain! Thank you so much!!! And my back/pelvic right side pain is gone too :-)) You are a miracle worker and I so appreciate you!!"

S.S. - Falmouth

"I have had chronic back, neck and shoulder pain for many years, and have tried many different treatments. I came to acupuncture as a last resort. Instead I am a total convert. Having been a patient of Graham's for less than two months, I am totally pain free and back to feeling like I did in 15 years ago."


"The acupuncture has worked wonders. Can't thank you enough!"

D.R. - Falmouth

"When I left the office last week I felt ten years younger! Thanks!"

E.B. - Yarmouth

"Graham, I had a really great day today and I wanted to share that with you! It feels very nice not to have a headache - it's like that day when it finally stop raining - it's twice as beautiful as a regular sunny day! Also, the anxiety is coming down and the pain is doing much better. I don't know if one can get sick of hearing it, but I have to say, thank you for what you do and how you help me, I really can't express to you how much I appreciate you and your acupuncture skills."


"Probably like many people, I came to Whole Health Acupuncture with a 'physical' issue for which I've found great relief. But more importantly, Graham has challenged me to reconsider a number of assumptions I've held, and that has motivated me to make changes in my lifestyle. I feel healthier and happier and grateful."

D.M. - North Yarmouth

"I just wanted to jot you a note about how thrilled I am with my acupuncture treatments! Not only is my shoulder 95%, but my sweats have completely changed! My office is tired of me talking about how much I'm enjoying no fan at work and I can exercise in the mornings without spending the next 4+ hours sweating and being miserable."


"I am a cancer patient. When chemo treatments left me tired and weak, I asked my doctor what I could do to improve the quality of my life. He said acupuncture worked for some people. I found Whole Health Acupuncture and I immediately felt better. Perhaps the first bit of energy was because I had taken action, but as I have continued, I feel it is definitely important to my well being as a cancer patient."


"Things have improved greatly the past couple of days. Pain is gone, no more dribble, flow is steady, urgency reduced. When I told this to my nurse, she wanted to know what I was taking. I was amazed, but it shows that conventional medicine is interested in the Chinese system. You are impressing the doctors, Graham, with your fine work."

D.W. - Harpswell

"Wanted to give you some more great feedback regarding the difference that acupuncture has made for me. The reason for the call from the Drs. office was to let me know that my bone density test results were significantly improved over 3 years ago. The only thing that is different is the acupuncture. Thank you!!!"


"I found Elizabeth while in the middle of a very long fertility journey. I am so happy that I did. I had been struggling for years to conceive, and had sought help through many different holistic therapies, including many months of acupuncture. I knew after my first visit at Whole Health Acupuncture that I had found treatment that felt right. Elizabeth is a very genuine and compassionate soul, and it is quite soothing to be in her care. She treated me during a time when I was very confused by and frustrated with my body, and her knowledge, tenderness, patience and commitment to me were a gift. It was a joyous moment in her office when I was able to tell her I was pregnant! She continued to treat me throughout my pregnancy, and I am currently seeing her again while I await the birth of my second child. With my husband currently being treated by Graham, and both of my babies receiving the benefits of acupuncture in the womb, I can say without hesitation that Elizabeth and Graham are a blessing to my entire family. I have loved sending my own family and friends to their practice- and consistently hearing the words “kind, knowledgeable, peaceful, “even,” and warm.” This is a wonderful place for healing and nurturing."

"Very grateful to Graham for helping diminish stabbing pleuritic pain residual from pulmonary emboli. Before coming to Whole Health Acupuncture, I could not cough, sneeze, laugh or take a deep breath without excruciating pain. Many thanks, Whole Health!"

E.C. - Yarmouth

"My ten year old daughter had terrible headaches for over 8 months. Sometimes 20 or more small sharp ones a day. She was taking Advil for the really bad ones up to 6 times a week. We saw vision specialists and neurologists with no options except more medication. We saw Graham just a few times before the headaches were nearly gone. Now she only has one a week if that. She is so happy she can be more active and not worry about missing out on fun because of a headache!"

W.Y. - Yarmouth

"Hi Elizabeth, I just wanted to tell you I feel SO much better today. Wow! Thanks so much."


"The good news is I am dramatically improved; I'd say my leg discomfort has decreased 80%! I am grateful; thank you."

M.T. - Harspwell

"Thank you for the superb care over the past two years. You've really cured me in ways that solved root problems - when doctors did not know how to proceed. My family and I are grateful for the gift of health you have helped me achieve."

D.S. - Portland

"I am so grateful for the care and healing you’ve given me over the year. I am hoping the recovery will allow energy to flow unhindered and that next year’s focus can be more external. I appreciate the thoughtful discussions and new awareness working with you creates. Thank you for your thoughtful care and support."

"I don't know how you do it but I am all better! I had a great day yesterday and got the cookies made in time to leave for Manchester at 3. You are just the best!"


"I cannot say enough about acupuncture and the positive effects that it has had on my health and life. When modern medicine failed to help me conceive a child, I turned to Elizabeth for help. Her knowledge of my infertility issues and acupuncture treatments helped my husband and I conceive a healthy, beautiful baby boy. He is now 2 and 1/2 and I continue to see Elizabeth on a regular basis. Elizabeth is truly a healthcare professional who cares about her patients and their overall well -being. I highly recommend Whole Health Acupuncture to everyone I meet."

J.B. - Brunswick

"I originally began seeing Elizabeth after searching out an acupuncturist to help with some ongoing knee pain and with the hopes of starting a family. I received so many recommendations for Elizabeth and Whole Health Acupuncture; I knew I had to give them a call. From my first visit, I found the care I received to be outstanding. I felt Elizabeth took the time to really listen to my concerns and to explain to me the various treatments available to help. Within three visits, the knee pain I had been experiencing for months was completely gone and I was astounded. I soon became pregnant and have continued to work with Elizabeth throughout my pregnancy. She has greatly helped me with all of the discomforts associated with pregnancy from nausea and heartburn to hip and back pain and difficulty sleeping. I’m not always certain how it works, but I do know that whenever a discomfort arises a simple visit with Elizabeth is sure to mitigate the issue and leave me feeling refreshed and invigorated. Whenever anyone asks how I’ve managed to move so smoothly through my pregnancy, I am always quick to mention the wonderful care and support I have received at Whole Health Acupuncture. Elizabeth’s warmth and intuitive nature have greatly helped me to maintain a smooth and healthy pregnancy and for that I am deeply appreciative!"


"Elizabeth O’Neill, of Whole Health Acupuncture, has been treating me since the winter of 2007. Recommended to me by a registered nutritionist, Elizabeth has provided me with acupuncture and herbal medicines throughout the onset and progression of Multiple Sclerosis. During this time, she has also successfully treated my less serious conditions, including lower back pain, upper respiratory infections and sleep disturbances. My experience with Elizabeth has been incredibly positive. She incorporates several Oriental medicine traditions in our sessions and tailors Chinese herb formulas for my specific health needs. Typically, I have an immediate improvement in symptoms after a session. I also experience longer-term improvements because of the herbs and acupuncture treatments. Not only do I feel better after being treated by Elizabeth, but my neurologist has said multiple times that my MRI findings do not correlate with my level of functioning- a Western doctor cannot understand why I am not more disabled by severe multi-focule MS. Already a skilled healer, Elizabeth continues to expand her knowledge with on-going education. Her treatments are always timely and helpful. I would recommend Elizabeth O’Neill at Whole Health Acupuncture to anyone with a life-altering illness. I would also encourage anyone who is curious about Oriental medicine as a support for general wellness to visit Elizabeth. I am incredibly grateful– and well– because of her skill and compassion."


"Whole Health Acupuncture maintains my emotional and physical health. I feel comfortable sharing my life experiences with Elizabeth and she helps me stay balanced. I also never get sick with colds or flu anymore. I prefer acupuncture over massage and know that the treatments make a difference in my life."


"I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for your help in the fertility process. We welcomed our daughter into our lives in November. She was healthy and strong. She is now one month old and is thriving. I attribute our getting pregnant to acupuncture and sincerely thank you for your expertise."

P.D. - Freeport

"I can't even begin to express my gratitude for the profound difference you have made in my life. It is amazing how different and wonderful the world is when you can actually breathe! I am thankful everyday that I was able to find Whole Health Acupuncture and embark on this journey to wellness with you!"

K.B. - Livermore

"Thank you to Whole Health Acupuncture for creating an emotionally and physically safe place to explore the path to conception"


"I sought the services of Elizabeth O’Neill LAC as a last resort attempt to get pregnant with my first child without hormonal interventions. At the age of 32, after 2 years of trying, a diagnosis of endometriosis and surgery, I was extremely discouraged. During my initial visit, Elizabeth convinced me that I was not “infertile”, a word I had begun to use daily to describe my self. She immediately developed a specific plan to treat me based on my history. She convinced me to recall how to relax and enjoy the process. I strictly followed her instructions. Amazingly, after only 4 weeks of acupuncture, herbs and a new attitude/relaxed mind set, I was pregnant! I decided to continue acupuncture in an attempt to treat pregnancy related symptoms and to maintain a healthy pregnancy. With her treatment, regular light exercise and a healthy diet, I experienced an amazingly healthy, complication-free pregnancy. Nearing my due date, I was very hopeful to have a natural birth and to avoid induction (although I was open to do anything medically necessary to deliver a healthy baby). Elizabeth treated me with my goals in mind. On my due date, I found that I was still only 2 cm dilated. I went to see Elizabeth at 1pm for my acupuncture treatment. Later that day I went for a long walk. By 7pm my contractions started. After 7 short hours, I experienced a wonderful natural childbirth with only 20 minuets of pushing and out came my beautiful healthy baby girl! When I am ready for baby number 2, acupuncture treatment with Elizabeth will by my first stop in the process. She is an extremely knowledgeable medical professional with an amazing spirit and calming nature. I have and will continue to refer friends and family to her for treatment. I feel very strongly that she was THE key to us being able to achieve pregnancy without hormonal intervention and therefore, I have her to thank for my beautiful baby Nora. I am grateful for her services everyday!"
