Adam Learner, L.Ac.

Acupuncturist & Functional Medicine Specialist located in Portsmouth, NH

Adam Learner, LAc, provides Functional Medicine, Acupuncture, and Chinese Herbal Medicine for the residents of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, at Family Acupuncture & Wellness. In his practice, he uses a holistic approach that combines the wisdom gathered in Chinese Medicine’s 3000 year history, with the scientific, evidence-based approach offered by Functional Medicine offers.

Having worked with thousands of patients in both private practice and hospital environments, he has learned that many patients are deeply dissatisfied by the results they receive from conventional care.  They are tired of rushed appointments where they don’t feel heard, and of treatment approaches built almost entirely around drugs that only treat or suppress symptoms without addressing the underlying root cause, and often cause additional problems and side effects. He founded Family Acupuncture & Wellness, and has guided its growth, with an eye providing a different type of healthcare:  one that is focused not only on helping patients find the most efficient relief from their suffering, but whenever possible works to correct the root causes that are causing the symptoms.

Adam earned his undergraduate degree in psychology from Colby College and went on to pursue his master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the New England School of Acupuncture.

In a rare opportunity to apprentice with master herbalist Dr. Tao Xie, MD, LAc, Adam learned modern and ancient time-tested methodologies to treat many chronic medical conditions. His training placed special emphasis on women’s health issues, hormones, digestive issues and infertility.

He received extensive training and advanced certification working with cancer patients from the leading Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

He was honored to be the first Licensed Acupuncturist hired by Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, a Massachusetts General Hospital subsidiary.  While there he developed a very successful program that integrates acupuncture into the traditional care, with particular focuses on working with patients undergoing cancer treatment, as well as those suffering with pain conditions that are not adequately addressed with standard care.  He served on the hospital’s Integrative Therapies Committee and participated regularly with the Northern New England Spine Center.

As an accomplished speaker, he’s often invited to present lectures on Acupuncture, Functional Medicine, and healthy living at hospitals, universities and other local establishments.

Adam is board-certified to practice Acupuncture in New Hampshire, and was one of the first board-certified Herbalists in the state.
