  • One of the side benefits of my treatment at Oregon City Acupuncture is the holistic view they have of care. I am not just treated for pain or inflammation. I am treated as a whole person and when I leave, I feel more centered and in tune with who I really am. — CC

  • For the first time in many, many years, I am able to really be comfortable in my body throughout my day and find joy in life.  I have an extensive history with western medicine, having had many surgeries and been treated by many doctors.  However, nothing has given me the benefits I receive from acupuncture and Chinese herbs. — CC

  • From the first visit, we noticed improvement. Each session for each of us was fashioned for our individual needs at that time, in a relaxing atmosphere. The results were encouraging, often giving us flexibility and release from pain. — J & G

How does acupuncture work?

According to ancient Chinese medical theory, acupuncture points are places where the Qi (vital energy) gathers, disperses, nourishes and drains. By locating the appropriate points we are able to stimulate the activity necessary to enhance and smooth the qi movement to bring about balance in your organ and acupuncture meridian systems, your body, mind and emotions. A balanced, healthy life means that the qi is moving freely and easily. Blockage (stagnation) or deficiency leads to discomfort, pain and illness.

At Oregon City Acupuncture your acupuncturist takes time to speak with you to determine where the imbalances are and remove the obstructions. Sometimes acupuncture is the best option, other times herbal formulas provide stronger treatment. Often it is a combination of both. The process is like peeling an onion layer by layer. Some symptoms are removed only to reveal another, different set. Oriental medicine focuses on treating the root of disease as well as treating the symptoms.
