Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Qi Gong, Cupping & Moxibustion have been used by East Asian Medicine practitioners for a millennia to help people optimize their health and heal from injury or illness.
At the core of this practice is the idea of meeting people where they are- knowing from experience that through their work with this healing medicine they will get better. The incremental changes in baseline vitality accumulate, bringing greater vibrancy, health and well being.
This path to greater health is unique to every individual, and we can help you find yours. With the tools of acupuncture, herbal medicine, supplements and dietary therapy, every patient has an opportunity for real growth and results.
Dr. Dixie Small, LAc, DAOM has been working with patients to help improve their health since 2009. Dr. Forrest Cooper, LAc, DAOM has been practicing and teaching in Portland and the Pacific Northwest for over 20 years.
Both of our providers engage a multi-faceted approach to uncover what works best for patients to realize their path to better health. Treatments are tailored depending on patient need: healing from injury or illness, living with chronic pain, women’s health issues, migraines / headaches, recovering from an auto accident injury, muscle strain / sprain, or seeking to optimize metabolic health, formulate dietary protocols or personalized cleanse protocols.
Schedule your acupuncture treatment using this “Book Appointment” link. New patients: Dr. Cooper is currently accepting new patient appointments. Dr. Small is closed to new patients currently.
