The Path To Healing Is Within You

Stillpoint supports the journey.

One thing that distinguishes my practice is that I look for root cause resolution by addressing your underlying physiology. This means that we are not just managing symptoms, but correcting the source of the issue that is unique to each individual.

Illness is not just a collection of isolated symptoms, it is the way our lives and our histories and what we want impact our lives.Maile McKain

The Path of Healing

A sense of path is critical to our lives. It gives us ground, boundaries, vision, and understanding. The path to healing is an opportunity to cultivate your inner knowing. Once you know who you are, you can manifest your inner potential. This potential mean that healing is always possible. 


The Journey to Wellness

The journey to wellness is a process that is guided by the path. Dysfunctional –> Functional –> Quality of Function –> Effortless Function. Based upon where you start, this is where we expect you to go and what you will experience.

Where are you on the journey?

Restore Harmony,
Restore Life

The purpose of Eastern Medicine is to restore and maintain harmony. It is based upon the science of understanding the functional process of nature as it exists within the human body. The purpose is to restore harmony. By harmonizing the opposites that exist in our minds, bodies, and spirits, balance in life returns. We become centered. We move effortlessly through the transitions of life unencumbered.

I decided to try acupuncture as a last resort for my debilitating migraines. As I had already seen three doctors who couldn’t do much to help me, I was surprised when before treating me the acupuncturist talked, and more importantly listened, to me for about an hour, asking me questions about what I ate and drank and when, how I rested, what kind of work and family life I had, and essentially got to know me. He helped me identify triggers and patterns in my headaches and with that knowledge and three needle treatments I’ve been migraine-free for over 20 years. In subsequent years I’ve come to consider my acupuncturist, Maile McKain, my primary care physician. In the current healthcare system there seems to be only specialists prescribing drugs and surgeries. In contrast, Maile works with me, honoring my intuition, preferences and experiences, and uses needling, massage, herbs, nutrition advice, and she doesn’t hesitate to recommend traditional western medicine when it makes sense as part of the whole treatment plan. I sincerely believe that acupuncture and embracing Maile’s wholistic approach are the foundation of the robust good health I’ve experienced.
