About Malvin Finkelstein,
O.M.D., L.Ac., Dipl.O.M.
Throughout Dr. Finkelstein’s 35 years practicing acupuncture and Oriental medicine he has kept one tenet foremost in mind: Never let a patient leave until they are feeling better. His quest to deliver fast pain relief led him to discover new, more clinically effective acupuncture and trigger points and develop Microcurrent Positional Tuina (MPT).
Dr. Finkelstein has taught MPT, acupuncture, acupressure and qigong in the U.S. and Europe and has taught a 4 weekend seminar series on MPT and pain since 2008. He is the author of "The Energetic Function of Points", "Digestive Disorders—Diagnosis and Treatment" and the DVD - "3 Centers Qigong". He is currently writing "Qigong for Postural Alignment".
A founding board member of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, Dr. Finkelstein was chairperson and a 20 year member of the Oregon Medical Board-Acupuncture Committee. He is a former chairperson of the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and the National Qigong Association (NQA), and past president of the Pain Society of Oregon and Oregon Acupuncture Association.
In addition, Dr. Finkelstein has a thriving practice in Eugene, Oregon. Dr. Finkelstein is devoted to his wife, Rosie; his daughter, Dara; his grand-daughter, Mia and his dog, Simon. He plays jazz alto saxophone in his spare time with the band “Sahmi”.
