About Alaine D Duncan

I am a Licensed Acupuncturist and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. I graduated from the Maryland University of Integrative Health with a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture in 1990 and completed Somatic Experiencing Practitioner training in 2007. I have a unique approach that integrates modern understandings of the neuro-biology of traumatic stress with ancient healing principles from Chinese medicine. I can offer Somatic Experiencing students credit for personal sessions and case consultation at all levels of the SE training.

I was a founding Director of Crossings Healing & Wellness in Silver Spring, MD and am a charter member of the Integrative Health & Wellness program at the DC Veterans Administration Medical Center, serving as a contractor there since 2007.  My book, The Tao of Trauma: East Meets West For Integrative Healing, written with Kathy Kain, will be published in 2018.  I teach at the Maryland University of Integrative Healing, and offer workshops for Acupuncturists on understanding trauma and working with survivors.

I have a particular interest in working with clinicians. Our own inner regulation is our most important clinical tool.

My research background includes serving on studies assessing the impact of integrative medicine on compassion fatigue in military caregivers; the use of acupuncture for the treatment of combat-related traumatic stress, the treatment of chronic headaches in current conflict Veterans with traumatic brain injuries and for Gulf War Veterans Illness. 

I created Integrative Healing, LLC in 2012 with a goal to integrate the wisdom of Chinese Medicine with the study of neurobiology and traumatic stress in both the classroom and the treatment room.  I have completed the Touch Skills and Somatic Resilience and Regulation trainings.
