“I believe in the Chinese Medicine maxim that mind and body are not separate and must be treated holistically. This is why I offer pain management, wellness and prevention treatments as well as acupuncture and massage combination sessions as adjuncts to counseling. I also work with people who have been injured, but neither injury nor counseling is requisite for my services. Nothing makes me feel better than getting a text or call from a client telling me how much I helped them. It's why I'm in practice, actually.

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.
