Kimberly Weir, L.Ac, M.Ac
Owner, Acupuncturist, and Chinese Herbalist
Having grown up in the Chicago suburb of Rolling Meadows, Illinois, and achieved my Bachelor degree at University of Wisconsin, Platteville, majoring in Animal Science, I had no idea that I would eventually become passionate about Chinese Medicine. For ten years I worked in medical research for the Medical College of Wisconsin and my research work is published. It was at that point I believed that everything had to be proven.
Then I had taken up horse showing at a farm that had extremely expensive show horses. When the horses would go lame, the farm manager would call in an acupuncturist. At that time in my life, I thought that was the most ridiculous thing they could do without calling a veterinarian first. I had to watch and learn why. As I observed the horse being treated, they would immediately get up and run off as if there was never pain in the first place. This was my first introduction to Acupuncture.
After moving to Maryland in 1996, I knew a paramedic who was told early in his career, he needed back surgery. A friend told him about Acupuncture and for 25 years, every time he would throw his back out, he would get Acupuncture and be able to touch his toes easily. I was unaware I was on a path to this wonderful career which can provide healing without the need for pills with side effects or surgery.
Currently, I am the owner of Annapolis Acupuncture & Integrative Healing, LLC, and practice Acupuncture at this location. I achieved my master’s degree in Acupuncture at Maryland University of Integrative Health, MUIH; formerly know as Tai Sophia Institute, in Laurel, Maryland.
Also, I am finishing up my second Masters degree in Oriental Medicine, featuring Chinese Herbs and I practice at MUIH in Laurel while I finish up my clinical requirements and offer Chinese Herbal therapy at a reduced rate at that location.
With all that going on, I am working on my doctorate degree in Oriental Medicine. This keeps me very busy, but I always have time to find the best way to heal my patients. Please come by AAIH and visit, I do FREE fifteen minute consultations on any of my modalities if you are interested or would like to learn more. I am also a provider for; Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna and United Healthcare and have programs to make healing affordable if you’re not covered by insurance.

What can I do?
Food can be powerful medicine, affecting overall health and vitality as well as every function of the body. What you eat and drink literally becomes the very substance of your body. Whole foods, eaten and prepared properly, can effect profound changes in mind, body, and spirit. Improper nutrition can lead to digestive issues, weight gain, sleeplessness, skin conditions, lethargy, anxiety, depression - the list goes on. Poor diet is a major contributor to the leading causes of chronic disease and death in the United States, including coronary heart disease, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and stroke.
Nutrition consultations can address, but are not limited to, managing pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, or diabetes, high blood pressure or high blood lipids, digestive and gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune conditions, inflammatory conditions or arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, food sensitivities, allergies, or intolerances.
