Updates & Photos of our New Space


Dear Friends,

I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from last week’s announcement that MCA is moving to South Portland next month. Thank you for being open to change—we’re on this new journey together!

The new space is really coming along and I’m happy to share some “before & during” photos… I can’t wait to share the “after” photos once we’re closer to opening. The building used to house small offices, and we’ve taken down walls, removed a chimney that was in the middle of our new treatment room, and are re-constructing the layout to meet the needs of MCA. It’s going to be spectacular! We are so grateful to Mike Reardon of Bath who is doing an awesome job with carpentry and renovation.

With the renovation underway, there is one more thing that will help us get to total independence and that’s subleasing our current space in Portland. Do you know of anyone who might like to make 222 St. John Street the new home for their business? Check out our blog post about the sublease, see our ad on Craigslist, or download a PDF of our flyer to share. We’re hoping the MCA community will have some leads for us!

Sublease the MCA space!


Thanks to all of you who answered the call for help with painting and gardening and other projects, we’ve got a team assembled and I’ll be in touch soon! We are currently looking for some help with drywall before we complete the renovation (are you good at mudding and taping?) as well as someone to hire for winter snow removal. Give me a shout if you’re able to help with either.


Again, thank you for the positive response to our move announcement. We can’t wait to share this new space with you, and look forward to treatments together in Portland this month. Stay tuned by e-mail and on Facebook for updates.


Be well,

MCA is moving: Sublease our Portland space!

Hey folks, as you’ve probably heard, Maine Center for Acupuncture is moving to South Portland in October! We are so thrilled to be more independent in our very own building, but need some help filling our current space. We’re hoping our wonderful MCA community can help us find someone to sublease from us–we’ll even throw in free heat and electricity!

Please share this post or our Craigslist post with your friends, neighbors, business partners, and your social networks. Thanks in advance for your help! Scroll for rental details and flyer

Big News: MCA is moving!

Dear friends,

I am excited to announce some very big news! On November 1, Maine Center for Acupuncture will be moving to a new space just over the bridge in South Portland. We look forward to serving you in a space we can call our own.

Seven years ago, we launched MCA in our current Portland location on St. John Street––many of you were with us in our early days downstairs in Suite 116!  And while change can be hard, we are embracing a wonderful opportunity to have our very own building! We spent this past year searching for the perfect new home for Maine Center for Acupuncture and its wonderful community, and had you all in mind when we closed on this great property at 975 Broadway in South Portland a few weeks ago. We’re only 3.2 miles from our current space on St. John Street, we’re still on a bus line, and we’ve still got plenty of parking. We think you’ll come to love this space as much as we do. The new neighborhood reflects our passion for wellness, too––there are nearby yoga studios, other complementary medicine practitioners, and it’s blocks from the Green Belt!

We are currently renovating the space with you in mind, working hard to transform former offices into a tranquil treatment room. Our goal is to be up and running November 1. Stay tuned as we will continue to send updates by email and on Facebook. In the meantime, the online schedule reflects appointments at the current location at 222 St. John Street. I look forward to seeing you for your next acu nap.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions.

I am so grateful for our amazing patient community and everything you’ve brought to this space over the years. We can’t wait to welcome you to the new location this fall, as well as your family and friends.

Be well,


P.S. If you’d like to join the fun and lend a hand in getting the new MCA space ready, we would welcome help with painting,  gardening, and other projects. Send me an email, and we’ll let you know about MCA community work days (which can be traded for treatments). It truly takes a village!
