Modern Acupuncture™ Partners With World Renowned Acupuncturist and Educator Robert Doane

Doane Joins the High-Growth Acupuncture Franchise as Co-Founder & Clinical Director

February 21, 2017 // // SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - World renowned acupuncturist and educator Robert (Bob) Doane has joined Modern Acupuncture™, the first health and wellness franchise to deliver the natural health and cosmetic benefits of acupuncture to the masses through first class retail locations nationwide.

Doane, EAMP, L.AC, has been practicing Chinese medicine for 19 years and has an impressive background that brings people from around the world to his clinic in Poulsbo, Washington to be treated by him. His clinic is the largest privately owned Chinese medical clinic in the U.S., routinely seeing 100 to 125 clients a day. Doane also teaches his methods to Chinese and Western doctors in 36 countries and regularly lectures in England, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Spain, Austria, Australia, Canada and the U.S. He has been and continues to be the keynote speaker at the largest Chinese medical forum in the world, TCM World Kongress in Rothenburg, Germany. Doane is a Fellow in the prestigious American Academy of Pain Management.

"When we began building Modern Acupuncture, we spent a significant amount of time researching the most qualified, respected, and well-known leaders in the acupuncture profession to align ourselves with," said Matt Hale, CEO of Modern Acupuncture. "Bob is well respected and sought after across the world due to his success as an educator and healer through his proven methods. As the Modern Acupuncture brand rapidly grows across the U.S., Bob will ensure that our mission of making millions of people's lives better through acupuncture becomes a reality."

In his role as Co-founder and Clinical Director at Modern Acupuncture, Doane is creating the new hire training for the licensed acupuncturist, assisting in the development of ongoing consumer education as well as providing oversight of the ongoing training of the brand's licensed acupuncturists.

Doane's educational background includes a degree in physics from the University of Washington (1969) and a Masters Degree in Chinese medicine from the Santa Barbara School of Chinese Medicine (1996). Doane has been married for 20 years to his wife Anne and has two children.

Modern Acupuncture combines a healing form that has been validated by thousands of years of practice with a modern, clean and spa-like environment to provide guests with a peaceful sanctuary that they can make part of their regular routine. The enhanced acupuncture experience at Modern Acupuncture does not require the removal of any clothing or needling at the site of the pain, yet accesses full-body health. All of the brand's acupuncturists have advanced degrees in Chinese medicine from an accredited school, are certified in acupuncture in their respective states and are further trained by Doane.

"I am proud to be a part of the Modern Acupuncture team," said Doane. "The brand that this seasoned franchise team is building is going to change the way acupuncture is perceived and delivered here in the U.S. I look forward to bringing my knowledge and expertise to help propel the growth of Modern Acupuncture."

The first location opened in Scottsdale, Ariz. in January 2017 and the brand has already awarded 145 regional developer licenses and 16 franchise licenses across the U.S., in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.
