For those with more energy and motivation, treatment plans incorporate more assertive approaches involving diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes.

“Health comes from the Old English hælþ, meaning "wholeness, being whole, sound or well, integrity." Being healthy is a dynamic, evolving process that requires attention to, and integration of, all aspects of ourselves: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental. As a natural health care provider, I am trained to work within all of these realms. In my practice, I combine my knowledge of the energetic landscape of the body with an understanding of Western anatomy and physiology to holistically treat the systems of the body as well as the subtle energy that precedes them.
“True health is more than just not feeling sick. It means that you are functioning at your highest possible level. Your body is in harmony, your mind is alert and your spirit is calm. You have the energy you need to get the most out of life. Each aspect of your whole self is strong and balanced.
“My goal as a healer is to help my patients have healthier and longer lives through my practice of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

“With every client I attempt to balance both their physical and energetic bodies. I attempt to find the root causes of their specific issues, and resolve their symptoms completely, without longterm pharmaceutical, herbal, or manual therapies. I prefer clients who are willing to do their work around my prescribed nutritional changes, exercise programs, spiritual practice (Qi-gong), and stretching programs to assist me with the balancing of their Whole Being. If you are looking to balance and harmonize both your spiritual and physical bodies, then I know I can help you resolve your imbalances!

I have trained extensively in Sports Medicine Acupuncture® and am fascinated by the body and how it works - I can't wait to share my knowledge with you.
“As a provider, I believe there is nothing more meaningful than acting with compassion and skill to foster the re-emergence of health and balance for each patient. I view my work with each person as a creative collaboration: knowing that your contributions to your healing are as important as mine. My practice is a "general" practice, with emphasis on chronic and acute pain, injury recovery, women's reproductive health/fertility, auto-immune disorders, digestive issues such as Celiac and other food sensitivities; allergies, asthma and dermatological issues; and depression and anxiety. I have privileges at Providence St. Vincent Hospital.
“I treat patients with acute and chronic pain due to overuse, sports injuries, car accidents, and shoulder/neck tension due to stress. I also address stress-related conditions such as anxiety/mood disorders, headaches, digestive issues and sleep disruptions. I support patients wanting to change personal habits (diet, smoking cessation), and those patients recovering from illness, surgery, work injury, or cancer treatment. I enjoy hands-on manual therapy in addition to providing acupuncture treatments, and I've had great results in reducing patients' pain and restoring movement when using acupuncture and massage together.
“Many clients who come to see me report that life has become too difficult, and usually don't see a way back to health. If you're dealing with autoimmune conditions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue, depression- Chinese Medicine can support you in ways that other medicine has not.
“We all experience the effects of stress in different ways. Do you ever feel overloaded with too much to think about? Have you ever felt like you can't stomach life? A balanced earth element can help you digest not only your food better, but also your life experiences in a way that helps you feel more centered and stable. This is just one of many ways 5 element acupuncture can help you feel more yourself. Each element has certain ways it tends to go out of balance, and has different needs for how to best reveal its strengths.
“Brandon came to know Chinese Medicine as an integral part of his own healing journey. He left a successful career in engineering as well as the western model of care to seek out help for his own state of dis-ease by traveling the countries of Asia. It is there that he discovered the efficacy of Thai massage and witnessed firsthand the massive power and simplicity of the acupuncture needle that almost instantly cured him of an ailment that western medicine had been unable to effectively remedy in over a year of treatment.

Acupuncture in Portland - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Portland acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.
Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into a number of trigger points on your body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.
'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
