Rebecca Sobin, DAOM

I graduated from Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2002 with my Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I moved home to Montana in 2002 and practiced in Bozeman and Livingston, Montana until 2008, when I decided to pursue my Doctorate at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon. I graduated in 2010 with the advanced degree and title of Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM). I continued teaching and supervising master degree seeking student interns at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon until August of 2011. At that time I accepted a position at Integrative Medicine Clinic in Great Falls, Montana and began seeing patients in September of 2011. I left Great Falls after the clinic closed when our Doctor joined Benefis Hospital, July 2013. I now am acting Dean of Academic Education at Han University of Traditional Medicine in Tucson, AZ and see patients in the college clinic. In Montana, I currently see patients on a monthly basis and consult via email and phone in between visits. While in the office, I see a variety of conditions including but not limited to anxiety and stress, acute and chronic pain, menopausal symptoms, menstrual issues, headaches, allergies, insomnia, and fatigue. At Han University, I oversee student academic success, curriculum enhancement and development, teacher retention and excellence in teaching at Han University of Traditional Medicine in the Winterhaven area of Tucson. My licenses are current in both Montana and Arizona and I am Nationally certified in acupuncture.

Rebecca Sobin's Care Philosophy

As an acupuncturist, I am very aware of the needs of my patients and their comfort while receiving acupuncture. No two patients are alike and treatment is customized for each person. The needling techniques I use are very gentle and effective. I understand some patients never having received acupuncture, may be unsure what to expect, and may have fear surrounding the initial treatment. I always take time to explain what to expect from acupuncture, both during and after an appointment. When treating many conditions, the time-line varies depending on what is being treated. In general, changes should be seen around the 5th or 6th acupuncture visit, although sometimes it can be earlier or even later than this. I always provide counseling on what to expect for each condition after doing a thorough intake and assessment. The patient will be informed of what modalities they may expect to receive in subsequent treatments and may opt out as well. I feel I bring a high level of ethical care and compassion into practice.

Alpine, UT |
I was in distress with the needles in. Dr. Sobin returned talking about available dates I could come next and then quickly left room, giving me a no chance to discuss my concern. I thought I could voice my fear of what happened in reception area but she ignored my two attempts to speak to her, and walked away. At home the severe distress continued, I called 5 times, over 3 days, but never got a call back. I didn't matter and my calls were ignored. A patient deserves to be cared for and heard.

Rebecca Sobin says...

I have been in practice since 2002 and have seen many conditions in practice and treated them with good results. Some conditions are better treated with acupuncture, some the addition of a custom Chinese herbal formula is necessary for better results. I have seen practically every age group imaginable. I have treated 90 plus year olds and less than 3 months old, as well as everyone in between. 

Entry level for a practitioner of acupuncture and Oriental medicine is a Master's degree, as many practitioners in the U.S. have. I always felt I wanted to gain more knowledge, that I could do a better job and help more people if I went further- so I earned my Clinical Doctorate. The Doctor of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (DAOM) allowed me to work with both Western practitioners and Chinese medical Doctors, who were expert in their fields. I gained a solid respect for what an integrative approach should be and how it would better serve my patients. I strongly believe in communication and referral.

I urge you to know your acupuncturist

Practitioners whose graduate education is in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (AOM) receive approximately 80% of their education exclusively in this field and undergo extensive clinical training averaging 3-4 years. Other healthcare practitioners may only use acupuncture, which is one of the many therapies of Oriental Medicine, as a technique in their primary practice and have less than 300 hours of training.

Other providers, such as physical therapists, are now performing what they are calling dry-needling. This is the practice of acupuncture under another name and acupuncture needles are used. The amount of hours in training are in some states less than 2 weeks for P.T.s.
