“People from a walks of life can benefit from acupuncture. Oriental medicine is perhaps best known in the United States for treating pain. It is also recognized for addressing: digestive disorders, stroke, allergies, asthma, reproductive issues, anxiety, depression, insomnia, urinary disorders, injuries, neck and back pain, neuralgia, headaches, sciatica, fibromyalgia, addictions, and more. Acupuncture is used for stress management, personal growth, and negotiating life transitions. It can even help with the common cold and flu. I have adeep acceptance and sense of compassion for people. I sincerely value the opportunity to share this medicine and your own healing journey.
“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.
“A native Oregonian, I earned my degree in Oriental Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon. Before entering this field, I worked for many years as a Physical Therapist Assistant in a local sub-acute rehabilitation facility where my focus was on treating multiple trauma victims and patients who had suffered stroke or head injuries. During that time, I became interested in Oriental Medicine through my own experience with it following a neck injury sustained while working and began to seriously contemplate a career in Medicine after a serious auto accident.
“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.
“Tom Williams founded the Turning Point Center in 1987, now one of Oregon's oldest and most respected acupuncture clinics. Named one of Eugene Magazine's "Top Doctors" in 2009, he collaborates with specialists in pain management, rehabilitation medicine, orthopedics, and neurology to provide quality, integrative health care. Tom has lectured on the treatment of chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, smoking cessation, and carpal tunnel syndrome at the Pain Society of Oregon, University of Oregon, Lane Community College, Symantec Corporation, Eugene Hilton, and Eugene Public Library.
“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.
“My goal as a healer is to help my patients have healthier and longer lives through my practice of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. I consider myself to be a general practitioner to help my patients achieve balance in their health. I also specialize in several areas to handle the "bumps in the road" that pop up and interfere your health and well being. Some of the issues I address are: colds/flu, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, acute & chronic pain including back & neck pain, tennis elbow, shoulder pain, plantar faciitis, headaches sports injuries, digestive disorders, asthma, insomnia, stress/anxiety and allergies.
“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.
“Acupuncture is an amazing form of medicine that has great potential for treating a wide range of issues. I have had great success in working with my patients on everything from hormonal imbalances to chronic aches and pains. It is especially powerful for sleep issues, anxiety, headaches, and stress.
“I was exposed to Oriental medicine as a teenager, after being advised by a number of Western Medical Specialist to no longer play sports because of debilitating knee pain. The experience and success of the treatment changed the way I viewed medicine forever, and after receiving my bachelors of science in Biology, I went in to receive my masters from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. I continued my education on China, being fortunate to study from doctors with over 50 years of experience.
“You can have less pain, more energy and better balance in your life, starting today. You've probably heard about acupuncture, thought it might help you, but thought you just couldn't afford the treatments. Now you can. Community style acupuncture clinics were created to make acupuncture accessible to more people. Having your treatment in a room with others is what keeps the cost affordable. There's a special magic to this, a group energy that is shared and enhances your treatment. Our sliding scale of $20-$50 allows you to choose what is light and right for you.
“Do you experience hot flashes and/or insomnia? Is your neck or back tight and painful? Acupuncture can help with these symptoms and much more. I have been treating people in the Eugene area for over 18 years. If you have "tried everything" or are simply interested in trying something other than pharmaceuticals please call me.
“I have found that Stress seems to be the underlining cause for most complaints, be it physical or emotional. When we get tense, our energy doesn't flow well. Over time this tension can cause an imbalance that we experience as pain. The pain is there to let you know something isn't right and to pay attention to your body's message. So, my first goal is to help you relax using acupuncture, massage, and attention to your breathe, then we can figure out how to keep your energy flowing freely, without the pain.
“Before earning my Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, my career began as a Tour Manager in the Music Business. I eventually realized I could not sustain the mental, emotional and physical demand for the rest of my life without sacrificing my health in the process. I needed balance and soon discovered the vast benefits of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. I decided to follow my nurturing quality in taking care of others and learn a new skill that would allow me to help people, as well as myself.

“Katya's gentle treatments are profound and transformative. Although able to draw on a range of effective Acupuncture methods, Katya speciality is a highly refined, 5 Element Japanese method called Toyohari. It addresses not only a persons symptoms but their root constitutional imbalance as well. It is very gentle, able to be used on children and sensitive people as needles can be used in a painless way. For office hours and to book online: http://katya-tripp.genbook.com
“My practice style begins with a deep listening as a new patient describes their reason for coming in. Most conditions are some combination of physical and emotional imbalance which then manifest at the symptom level. Unraveling the underlying imbalance is the key to a long term resolution of the symptoms. Treatment may include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, massage, diet and lifestyle changes. I also like to teach patients about Chinese medicine, and their body's energetic systems through discussion and demonstration during their sessions.
“I serve people with health concerns and challenges who want to improve the quality of their lives and are seeking experienced professional help achieving their goals. Included are those suffering from pain and illness that is diminishing their quality of life, those who realize that with some help they can feel and perform even better. * Desire to find a healing environment offering multiple treatment options. * Preference for a holistic approach including the whole you - physical, mental, emotional, * and those with generally good level of health but desiring to improve well-being, function and performance.
“I find that acupuncture almost always helps patients with pain, both in the short and long terms. My needling style is gentle, I'm told, and my massage style is effective without leaving you feeling too bruised. I am thorough and make it a point to listen carefully your story so I can give you the best treatment possible. I use massage, infrared heat, cupping, acupuncture, herbal medicine (shipped to you directly), supplement advice, nutritional counseling, music, and the latest research to heal you. Patient education is very important to me, and you can call or email me with questions!
Acupuncture in Oregon (OR) - 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. Oregon (OR) 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.
