Alison Loercher, LAc, MAOMDixie Small
She’s passionate about herbal medicine, getting to the root of problems and social justice. Her practice is open to everyone seeking health and healing. She loves to work with individuals to relieve suffering from chronic pain, anxiety, depression, digestive dysfunction, and autoimmune disorders. She is also well practiced at treating pain and dysfunction from traumatic injuries from car accidents and injuries.
seeks to serve with intention people in generally under-served,
under-recognized populations, especially LGBTQIA individuals and
families. Everyone is welcome in her practice, with a respectful eye
toward differences and challenges born of racial, gender, size,
spiritual/religious and socioeconomic systemic inequality.
Her first taste of cooperative ideals came to her through her background with the ILWU Local 5 union at Powell’s Books. There, she discovered a passion for meeting the needs of a community through action and solidarity. It is through working at the bookstore and the particular insight working with the union brought her- fighting for fair pay, a say in the workplace, healthcare coverage and an adequate number of sick days that she discovered a passion for healing individuals and communities. It is through her own physical struggles that she discovered a passion for natural medicine.
It is her goal to bring true health and wellness to the individuals she sees in her practice, whatever that means for them.
