Born in Bangor Maine, Dr. Knowles always dreamt of being a doctor.  He pursued this dream at the University of Maine.  It was in a physiology class during his pre-med studies, that a professor made the statement that our bodies have the ability to heal themselves.   This revelation sparked his desire to research ways to facilitate the natural process of healing.

Moving back to Maine in 1982, Dr. Knowles obtained an advanced certication as a Fellow of the American Society of Acupuncturists & to earn Diplomate of the American Academy of Chiropractic Acupuncturists.
