Ruth B. Wegmann, M.Ac., L.Ac., Dipl. Ac.
|Ruth Busko Wegmann is a Nationally Certified Acupuncturist who received her Master of Acupuncture degree in 2004 from the Tai Sophia Institute for the Healing Arts (now called the Maryland University of Integrative Health), along with a B.A. in Liberal Studies from St. John’s College in 1999. Beginning her career with a firm foundation in Traditional Five Element Acupuncture, Ruth avidly continues to study and integrate techniques from many traditions of Chinese Medicine into her practice. She is a certified Acupuncture Detox Specialist, and has completed several post graduate courses with Jeffery Yuen, including 2-year Advanced Acupuncture, 1-year Stone Medicine, 1-year Medicinal use of Essential Oils, and weekend Pediatric Acupuncture. Ruth also has specialized training in Gua Sha and Cupping, Constitutional Acupuncture Facial Renewal, and Balance Method Meridian Therapy. Ruth has taught and supervised acupuncture students at the Tai Sophia Faculty-Student Clinic, and has written about acupuncture for the American Academy of Pain Management. |
After 3 years of practicing acupuncture in Maryland, Ruth returned home to south-central Pennsylvania in 2007 where she established the Keystone Acupuncture & Wellness Center in historic downtown Carlisle. The Wellness Center is a permanent practice home for Ruth and her parents (who practice functional medicine and psychotherapy) and also provides space for other talented professionals in the healing arts to offer their services.
In 2013, inspired by the work of many pioneers in the Community Acupuncture movement across the United States, Ruth initiated Carlisle’s own Community Acupuncture program at the Wellness Center. This popular program gives patients the opportunity to receive the many benefits unique to group acupuncture, and has proven to be an satisfying and effective way for many patients to get acupuncture, exclusive of, or in addition to, receiving individual treatments.
Along with practicing acupuncture and learning more about Chinese medicine, Ruth’s favorite things include being with her husband and son, homemaking, cooking, growing and preserving food, and passing the seasons with friends and loved ones in town, on the family farm and in the woods and mountains.
