Maureen M. Sacon, DO

Founder of Insight Osteopathic Medicine.

Board Certified Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine / Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine / Cranial Specialty

 

In 1995, Dr. Sacon graduated from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Maine. Following medical school, she and her husband headed west to Oregon where she spent the next couple years at Eastmoreland Hospital in Portland for her internship and residency. Throughout her 25 years in practice she has constantly exhibited the ability to truly listen and care for her patients. She has found that by slowing down and being present, she is able to combine a scientific mind with a passion for healing and piece together difficult diagnoses.  

 

From an early age, Dr. Sacon demonstrated an interest in the healing arts. This aptitude expressed itself in love of meditation and an interest in anatomy. By middle school, she was frequently asked to massage the aches and pains of friends and family. After leaving high school early to attend college, Dr. Sacon graduated from Simon’s Rock of Bard College at the age of 20. She then spent several years living on sail boats in the Caribbean before moving to Hawaii for a year to try her hand at professional windsurfing. Although she considered medical school in college, it was not until she discovered Osteopathy that she actually applied.

 

In 2002, Dr. Sacon, her husband and two kids relocated to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge where they built their dream house in the woods. In her leisure time, Dr. Sacon basks in the zen of weeding and enjoys quilting and scrapbooking. She also loves yoga and Pilates, and feels at peace being and living in nature.
