INTEGRITY. COMPASSION. RESULTS.

IT’S WHAT WE’RE KNOWN FOR.

Samantha L. Francis, D.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl. Acu. (NCCAOM), specializes in the treatment of chronic pain, anxiety and neurological complaints. She graduated with her Master’s Degree in Acupuncture from Tai Sophia Institute in 2010 and completed her Doctorate in Acupuncture at Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH)  in 2017. She also supervises at MUIH in the student clinic. Her post-graduate study includes working with cancer patients at Upper Chesapeake Health’s Kaufman Cancer Center, neuro-acupuncture for post-stroke concerns and traumatic brain injury, and Master Tung acupuncture specifically for chronic muscular and nerve pain. She also studies Chinese Medicine aromatherapy. She received her BA at the University of Virginia in English Literature. 

Samantha came to know Chinese Medicine and acupuncture in 2005, when she was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme Disease after an 18 month journey of increasingly scary symptoms, including memory issues and intermittent paralysis. Acupuncture allowed her to keep her  IT job (and health insurance!) by supporting her sleep, and reducing her pain and stress. Most importantly, acupuncture provided hope for the future after Lyme.   After completing treatment in 2006, Sam realized her current career was no longer sustainable for her and began to explore other options. She attended a Redefining Health weekend at Tai Sophia Institute in Laurel, MD and found the tools of Chinese Medicine and philosophy were easily applicable to her own life.  These powerful teachings led her to pursue her Master’s degree in Acupuncture.  Sam went on to complete her Doctorate in Acupuncture in 2017 to be able to integrate her practice more closely with Western medicine and to be better able to serve her patients through  exploring the ways acupuncture can work within our current healthcare system to address pain and suffering.

Chinese Medicine is so interesting because it looks at the entire person; their physical, emotional, mental and even spiritual aspects, to determine the root cause of suffering. By exploring a person this way, the reasons for chronic pain, anxiety and neurological symptoms are easily found and addressed without medications or expensive testing. 

Sam’s mission is to make the most of the second chance at life she was given post-Lyme disease and use her knowledge, observational skills and healing presence to help empower those with chronic pain, anxiety and neurological concerns  to their own best life and health. She partners with her patients to help them discover the best ways to take care of themselves and allow themselves to heal naturally, as well as support them with acupuncture, aromatherapy and other tools to live with less suffering and pain and see more possibilities for joy in their lives.

Sam is the proud daughter of two Navy veterans. Her father retired when she was born to stay home and take care of her, so her mother could stay in the Navy and receive her pension. Her mother went on to make Captain at a time when that was quite rare for women. Sam decided early on the military wasn’t a good fit for her (too many early mornings!)

Sam is a second-generation geek who enjoys reading high fantasy and some sci-fi, watching stories of heroism and personal power and traveling to places that inspire her. Her partner and two cats keep her grounded and humble when at home. After 12 years of software testing and Fortune 100 companies, being a Chinese Medicine practitioner better suits her because she gets to bring people on the same journey she found so powerful; empowering herself despite pain, neurological symptoms and depression.
