I am looking forward to serving the Portland, Oregon community.
After many years of education, I feel ready to offer my services. I offer a brief explanation of what I do below.
I am a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist in Oregon. I studied Chinese medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine as well as naturopathic medicine. I plan to expand my practice in the future to include naturopathic medicine.
What is Chinese medicine?
Chinese medicine not only includes acupuncture, but also other therapies; such as, shiatsu, qigong, tuina, shen-hammer pulse diagnosis, moxibustion, cupping, herbal medicine, supplementation, dietary advice, and exercises. It is not important for you to know what this means, just that I can do more than simply acupuncture.
Are you afraid of needles?
The needles are very small and sometimes you can’t feel a thing! (Sometimes feeling something even if it’s pain, is the point). We can start with very few needles or none at all! I can use a teishin or my hands to achieve a similar effect. Please communicate your feelings surrounding the process.
Let’s keep in touch!
