Jeanne Crane, M.Ac, L.Ac


Jeanne maintains a general practice addressing a wide range of issues including pain, injury recovery, digestion, fertility and anxiety. She also holds small group sessions in homes, workplaces and other community locations in which she provides a treatment that detoxifies and harmonizes the body systems and emotions. Her clients often report physical and emotional relief as a result of treatment. She often recommends easily implemented practices to help her clients optimize the benefits of their treatments and encourages their exploration of other modalities that, combined together, may help them feel their best. 

What Jeanne most loves is providing an environment and treatment where her clients feel relaxed enough to reconnect with who they are and what they truly want for their lives - knowing that the connection between the mind and body makes all things possible.

Jeanne is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the State of Maryland and received her education in the healing arts from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia Institute) in Laurel, Maryland. She loves books, nature, painting and is grateful for the company of those she loves and of all her favorite dogs.
