Nationally Certified and State Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Shiatsu Therapist, Master Medical Qigong Therapist
Dr. Richard Tan DOM and Anna Kwiecinska, L. Ac. in Boston 2014
Anna’s rich background and numerous skills come from having over twenty years of experience in the field of natural healing. She completed her three-year master’s level degree in acupuncture in July of 2003 from Maryland Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, but her journey into the field of Oriental Medicine dates back to 1991 when she for the first time began to work with the human energetic field doing Reiki and practicing basic homeopathy to recover from lyme disease.
Before becoming an acupuncturist, Anna graduated from the International School of Shiatsu in Doylestown, PA in 1993 where she learned macrobiotics and advanced methods of working with the human energy system. Working for over ten years as a shiatsu practitioner, she deepened her understanding of how various human energetic systems work and how to access them to facilitate healing, improve energy levels, and create wellbeing and a positive outlook on life. At that time, she also received training in Pranic Healing from Steven Co and subsequently, basic and advanced training in Cranio-Sacral therapy and Somato-Emotional Release from Upledger Institute. Training in acupuncture became a natural progression of a continually evolving interest in working with energy to facilitate healing and positive changes in the lives of individuals, families and communities.
As an acupuncturist, Anna had a great privilege and honor to study directly with Dr. Richard Tan OMD and complete all of his basic and advanced classes in The Balance Method of acupuncture. Dr. Richard Tan was a true contemporary master of acupuncture and beyond doubt one of the world’s greatest minds in the field of Oriental Medicine. Acupuncturists across the globe mourn his recent passing while continuing to benefit their communities practicing his ingenious acupuncture method.
Anna’s professional record also includes two year-long intensive pulse diagnosis classes with one of today’s leading Chinese Medicine teachers in USA, Lonny Jarrett. This valuable training gave her a deeper insight into the nature of true health and the evolutionary role of holistic medicine in contemporary society.
Anna has also completed a three year long Master Medical Qigong program with Ted O’Brian, L. Ac., MMQ – founder of the East Coast Institute of Medical Qigong and a student of Prof. Jerry Allan Johnson - world-renowned teacher who brought these arcane teachings to the US after studying them for many years from Daoist masters.
Anna currently provides Medical Qigong therapy to some of her clients and leads group exercises in Medical Qigong for the cultivation of health and longevity.
Today, Anna’s acupuncture style is based in Dr. Tan’s Balance Method in conjunction with Master Tung’s acupuncture points.
She provides acupuncture sessions alone or in combination with shiatsu, cranio-sacral therapy or Medical Qigong.
“When I had breast cancer 16 years ago, a healer came into my life – Anna. She has treated me physically, emotionally, and spiritually with acupuncture, shiatsu massage, diet, nutrition, and herbs.
Thanks to her genuine concern for my health and well being as well as her expertise in both Eastern and Western practices, I have been given a gift of a good health, peace and joy.
Thank you, Anna”
– Gail W. (Teacher) PA
“Before coming to Anna for her treatments I went to the hospital each month for epidural injections and took pain pills two to four times a week for back pain and migraine headaches.
I felt stressed trying to work while in pain. Since having shiatsu treatments, I no longer need epidurals and may need a pain pill one or two times a month.
The stress has eased and after having a shiatsu treatment I have a feeling of peace and well being.
Anna is a very dedicated and caring person, and very much wants to help people.”
– Linda M. (Health Insurance Agent) PA
“Anna has been treating me with shiatsu and acupuncture for many years. She has helped me with energy issues stemming from thyroid and anemia, as well as pain issues in the neck, back and hands due to stress.
Not only is she very talented person, but also she really cares about you. I always walk away from sessions with her feeling relaxed, pain free and I have a general sense of well-being.
I don’t think I could survive my stressful life without the help of Anna and I would strongly recommend her to anyone.”

“I have been an acupuncture patient of Anna @ Wellspring Acupuncture for the past 15 years. I highly recommend anyone to Anna. Anna is very, very gentle and very knowledgeable about the most beneficial way to treat you individually for whatever reason you are seeking treatment. I have had incredible success with Anna for many different reasons. Each time I visit Anna she takes time to consult with me about how I have been since my last visit. She asks good questions that helps her decide the best way to provide her treatment at my visit. She always takes notes and that helps her know the next time we meet if her previous treatment was successful. She is very careful and thorough and very gentle. Anna has treated me for tennis elbow, sinus issues, bursitis, issues with my ilio-tibial band, bunion pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, sadness, low energy, stress and anger. Along with individual concerns, Anna also focuses on my overall well-being. Anna has helped me to resolve my medical concerns with acupuncture which meant I did not have to take many different drugs along the way for long periods of time. I will continue to be a patient of Anna's for many years.”
