Wellness At The Center 

Wellness At The Center brings Acupuncture & East Asian Medicine and a holistic healing approach to the Lents neighborhood of SE Portland.


Treatments are individually created with one simple goal in mind: Restore you to a natural state of balance and with that a greater level of health and vitality.

Pain of any kind makes it difficult to enjoy life and is a real indicator that something is wrong and needs to be addressed.  The holistic modalities of Acupuncture & East Asian Medicine, Chiropractic Medicine and dietary therapies systematically treat the whole person to get to the root of physical and emotional pain and illness.
