Acupuncture & Chinese Herbs
Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture and Physical Medicine
During your initial intake appointment, your Naturopathic Physician will have an in-depth discussion with you regarding your life, well-being, and goals. The customized treatments are tailored for each individual’s needs.
Initial Intake & Treatment
This session includes an intake discussion and your first acupuncture treatment as well has physical medicine if you choose. This appointment sets you on the path of deeper healing. 1 hour
Ideally, each of the first three visits is no more than one week apart. As follow-up to your initial appointment, or as regular maintenance, these personalized sessions continue your profound healing journey. Once you feel you have reached your goals in treatment, it is suggested that you come in about five times a year for a tune up. 1 hour or 1/2 hour
For the children of our community we offer infant wellness exams and well child check-ups. We will weight and measure your child in the physical exam and document developmental growth. Our physician also provides immunization education. 1 hour or 1/2 hour
Community Wellness Appointment
This is a single visit or ongoing, brief, focused, budget conscious treatment, either acupuncture or chiropractic work, scheduled at your convenience any time during business hours. 30 minutes

Western and Chinese Botanical Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine uses naturally occurring substances — including herbs, animal substances, and minerals — to enhance one's health and vitality. Chinese herbs can be used alone or in combination with acupuncture to support the body's own healing process and balance.
Each patient has different needs, and these needs change over time as well as through the course of treatment.
I carefully select formulas or combine a variety of herbs that will support each individual based on information gathered through looking at your tongue, listening to your pulses, and discussing your symptoms. The herbal formulas may be in the form of pill, tablet, tincture, powder or topical application such as a liniment.
Simple formulas, such as those for cold and flu, may be prescribed immediately and taken for a short duration.
For more complicated health issues, a longer evaluation is necessary and your progress is monitored during follow-up appointments. I prescribe high-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines that are available at the time of your appointment or within a few days.
In compounding our own custom formulas, we use organically grown or ethically wildcrafted herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs, Wise Woman Herbs, and Oregon's Wild Harvest.
*Cost of herbs is in addition to cost of office visit.
