ATTENTION : Coronavirus Update
Hey Guys! I've just learned that the state of Oregon has temporarily (due to COVID19 distancing) changed the rules for acupuncturists - Previously, we were only allowed to work with patients with whom we'd already established treatment in-person. We are now allowed to take on new patients! If you know anyone who has been wanting to start acupuncture to strengthen their immune system, I'd love to help!
Another development is that many insurances are adjusting their policies to allow for telemedicine reimbursement! Kaiser, Providence, Regence, and Moda have all made such changes. I'll be taking a class on Thursday to learn all of the ins and outs!
In light of all of this exciting news, I'll be opening up my online scheduler for telemedicine appointments :) If you're interested in learning some acupressure points, stretches, or exercises, or if you'd like some nutritional advice, these visits may now by covered by your insurance.
Another tool that you may be interested in is Ear Seeds. They are tiny seeds, or metal balls that get placed with a little adhesive tape (like a tiny little bandaid!) on different acupuncture points on the ear. They are a fabulous tool for you to be able to treat yourself at home! If you're interested in giving Ear Seeds a try, give me a call or email me and we'll get you set up!
As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions! Like I said, I'll be taking a class on Thursday to figure out these new ropes, and I'll help figure out the answers to any of your questions!
Welcome to Thrive Acupuncture!
Bodies are amazing - but I'll be honest with you, they sometimes do weird things when they get out of balance! Here at Thrive Acupuncture, we will work together as partners in undoing the weird so you can feel awesome! Healing is kind of like a cross-country road trip - it's a bit of a journey, yes, but it's always better when you're with a friend. I'll be with you every step of the way (doing acupuncture, telling bad jokes, prescribing herbs, giving nutritional advice and being your cheerleader) and your body will do the incredible work of remembering how to be healthy again!
All acupuncturists are trained to treat a wide variety of ailments, but we tend to have particular things that we absolutely love to treat. For me it's diseases associated with the immune system such as allergies, eczema, psoriasis, and auto-immune processes. If you're ready to let me join you on your roadtrip to feeling better than you ever have before, let's go!
