Photo Album of Our New Space!

Maine Center for Acupuncture opened its doors at our new location at 975 Broadway in South Portland on November 1, 2017. Over the last two weeks we’ve been putting the finishing touches to our fresh, light-filled space, and are enjoying sharing it with our patients!

Here are some photos from our new location… all we’re missing in these photos are our lovely patients!  Come in and see it for yourself, find your favorite chair, and take an acu-nap!

6 Week Meditation Course at MCA

A Note from Ryan

One of the best parts of being open in our new location at 975 Broadway in South Portland is that we can collaborate with others in our community to host special events, like this 6 week meditation course with our amazing friend Els Heij. Check out this message from Els and sign up for this opportunity to re-charge, relax, and learn something new! Note that the first session is this week – November 9!

As always, I look forward to seeing you for your acupuncture treatment. If you haven’t stopped by our new space, click here to book your next appointment.

Be well,
Ryan Nitz, owner of Maine Center for Acupuncture

MCA Community Event

6 Week Meditation Course with Els Heij
November 9 – December 21, 2017

Have you been wanting to learn how to meditate and have been waiting for an accessible environment to explore? Do you already enjoy meditation and would like to do so in a supportive group? Or are you just curious about ways to find and sustain more peace and freedom? This series is for everyone. No previous experience is necessary.

Meditation is an opportunity to develop the power of observation, the power of the stillness of the observer (you). Meditation demonstrates that the space between the thinking, outward mind and the higher, knowing mind is small. In this class you will learn your innate power of observing and Knowing. Meditation, clear thinking and healthy living based on yogic science are the essential keys that enable you to turn your attention from the concerns of the mind to the potential to live in freedom and joy.


The instructor, Els Heij (BSN, LCSW, RCYT) has been interested in and practicing meditation and healthy living based on yogic science for 40 years. In 1993 she became a certified Hatha Yoga teacher through the Himalayan Institute, and has taught a variety of classes to many different populations. In 2011 she met an enlightened being in the Himalayas of India, who lived the freedom that he spoke of. She has been a part of his ashram; learning and studying under his guidance and with his community ever since. Els is passionate about sharing how to live a yogic lifestyle of meditation and Self-inquiry while living fully engaged in a busy and complicated world. This course is meant to inspire, support, and share peace and freedom.
