Mark Whalen, L.Ac.

Mark Whalen, L.Ac., is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Board Certified Herbalist in Reading, MA.

I'm the founder of Five Points Acupuncture & Wellness in Reading, MA.  I'm passionate about educating others on the benefits of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine and I'm driven to help others get well.

I first became interested in acupuncture while I was a patient. Although skeptical at first, I could not argue with the results I experienced. Throughout the course of my treatment, I became fascinated by the traditional Chinese medical approach to health and healing. This fascination became a passion, leading me to change my path and pursue a career in acupuncture.

I graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in Watertown, MA in 2005 with a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I am licensed to practice acupuncture by the Massachusetts Board of Medicine. I'm also board certified to practice herbal medicine via the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

While attending the New England School of Acupuncture, I focused my studies on Chinese style acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine. I also completed an internship with master herbalist Dr. Tao Xie at the Pathways to Wellness clinic in Boston. I've worked in two of the busiest acupuncture clinics in New England and have gained valuable clinical experience working on a variety of patients and conditions.
