East-Asian medicine is a clinical approach to health care that has been refined and honed over thousands of years. For most of that time the focus of its transmission has been the clinic, where knowledge grows organically out of experience as master practitioners pass on what they know to apprentices. We believe that a modern acupuncture program still must be grounded in the clinic.  Read a Message from the Directors

Class of 2008

Grainne (pronounced "Granya") McKeown is a practitioner of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, and Thai bodywork and has been studying and practicing various healing modalities for over 15 years. Following a BA in Psychology from Boston College, Grainne devoted the next years to her study of healing techniques of the East. Her journey began with three years in Thailand studying Thai Massage and Chinese Medicine in Chiang Mai as well as meditation in the forest monasteries of Northern Thailand. Along the way, she spent months in South India, learning Ayurveda, and deepening her yoga practice with master teachers in Mysore, as well as spending a year with Tibetan monks learning about meditation and Buddhism in Kathmandu, Nepal.

In 2008 Grainne completed a four year Masters of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM) from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine. Subsequently, she traveled back to Asia to volunteer in free clinics in Bali and Nepal, finally founding a non-profit of her own called Mindful Medicine Worldwide (MMW), whose intention is to improve health care around the world by setting up free integrative health clinics in developing countries. Grainne divides her time between directing MMW, seeing patients in Chicago, and at clinics in Nepal.

Grainne's healing practice combines many of her skills and interests. For over a decade she has been an avid lover and practitioner of Thai Massage, yoga, and meditation, all of which she brings to her patients, along with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Grainne frequently follows treatments with advice on yoga postures, breathing techniques, and meditation advise. She has worked extensively with fertility and gynecology, musculoskeletal disorders and chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and many other disorders. Grainne is a Licensed Acupuncturist in IL as well as a Board Certified Chinese Herbal Medicine practitioner.
