Your Health Matters

Today, your health matters more than ever. It affects your performance at work, your relationships with your loved ones, and your day-to-day happiness. Whether your issue is musculoskeletal pain, headaches, hormonal issues, or digestive complaints, I hope to be of help to you. I offer both traditional acupuncture and dry needling. In addition to performing acupuncture, I do research on my client’s issues and look at the biomedical processes that might be at play. I  work hard to help you find answers so that together we can make the most progress possible. If you have questions, please feel free to call or e-mail me.

Your First Visit

When we first meet, we’ll spend about 2 hours together. The first hour will be spent bringing me up to speed on the issue(s) that have brought you in and reviewing your overall health and health history. During that time, we’ll discuss what else might be helpful for your condition including exercise recommendations and changing any supplement use as well as any pertinent research that I’m familiar with that relates to your issue(s). The second hour of your appointment will be spent on the treatment. Follow-ups are generally about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.

Covid-19 Precautions:

All patients are required to wear a mask, and I currently will not see any patients with symptoms that might be the result of a Covid-19 infection (cough, fever, sore throat, new digestive upset). I am currently seeing only one patient at a time within the office. Since I have two treatment rooms that both have windows, I can alternate rooms and am able to thoroughly air out each room between patients. Each room also has it’s own HEPA air purifier that is on at all times, and I completely sanitize each room between patients. 

What does Acupuncture feel like?

The experience of having acupuncture or dry needling is nothing at all like pricking yourself with a pin. Most people either feel nothing at all or a slight pinch when the needle is inserted. Occasionally, there will be a stronger sensation but when that happens, it is brief — lasting only a second or two and then quickly fading away. Many patients fall asleep during treatment, which I think attests to how comfortable it is. The most common comment afterward is “Wow, I feel really relaxed.”

Your Acupuncturist

I am a board-certified acupuncturist licensed by the Oregon Medical Board and Nationally Certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine.  I have been in practice for over 10 years.

I utilize a variety of techniques including Dry Needling, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and 5 Element Theory. Over my many years of practice, I’ve learned that some theories work better for certain issues than others. I use what has had the best efficacy for my patients. If you have tried acupuncture before and did not have a good experience or didn’t get the results you were looking for, it is worth trying again. We don’t all practice the same styles of acupuncture or use the same needling style. Some practitioners use a more aggressive style of needling that can be quite uncomfortable. My style is rarely painful. 

Lastly, I am connected with some great healthcare practitioners in this town who are well regarded in their field that I will also recommend if I think they might be of benefit to you because I believe that together we can help you recover more effectively and faster than any one of us can alone. 

Close to OSU and Downtown

On the corner of 9th and Monroe in Corvallis, right next to Monroe Avenue Dental. There is free parking on the alley side of the building, and it’s an easy walk or bike ride from OSU or downtown.

Affordable Healthcare

I offer a 20% discount for patients paying out of pocket since I don’t have to process the insurance claim. The cost for patients paying out of pocket is typically $150 for the first visit and $80 for followups.

Hassle Free Billing

I am an in-network provider for Providence, PacificSource, and BlueCross Health Plans. I can bill your plan directly if you have acupuncture coverage. Unfortunately, I do not work with Medicare or OHP plans — sorry.
