In the heart of Milan's downtown, a new healing oasis has thrived for the past year since opening, offering a blend of ancient traditions and modern therapeutic techniques.

Dr. Linda Mouacheupao, DCM, L.Ac, the founder of Dear Healer Acupuncture Clinic, has found a warm home in the welcoming community. "It has been really great to be here in the midst of all that’s happening,” says Dr. Linda. “I have enjoyed getting to know everyone I’ve met."

Acupuncture, the clinic's primary service, is a traditional method practiced for centuries to restore balance, treat illnesses, and enhance overall well-being. Employing the precise insertion of fine needles, Dr. Linda taps into the body's intrinsic healing power, fostering both physical and emotional health.

In addition to acupuncture, Dr. Linda's clinic is a destination for those seeking holistic healing. Herbal medicine, a natural complement to acupuncture, is utilized to alleviate pain and nurture health, with formulas tailored to each individual's unique health requirements.

Understanding the common apprehension towards needles, Dr. Linda offers comforting words, "If you’re in chronic pain, please come in for a visit anyway,” she says. “We have other treatments that don’t involve needles." For those hesitant about acupuncture, Dear Healer provides alternative therapies such as cupping, moxa, tuina, and gua sha—each offering its own benefits like pain reduction, immune support, muscle relaxation, and improved circulation.

The decision to establish her practice in Milan was serendipitous. Dr. Linda had initially considered Ann Arbor but recognized a gap in holistic healthcare services between Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti and Toledo. "For people in chronic pain, that can be a long drive that they may not want to make," she noted. Thus, she brought her practice to Milan, filling a much-needed role in the community.

At the core of Dr. Linda's practice is a personal connection to the healing arts, passed down through generations. "I am an extension of my mother," she shares. Her mother's legacy as a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner instilled in her the transformative power of acupuncture and herbal medicine. With a deep sense of gratitude, Dr. Linda concludes, "I believe that acupuncture is for everyone, and I am grateful that I can share this medicine with others. The heart of my work is guided by love."
