To say Corey has changed my life might be an understatement. I've been battling chronic migraines for almost 10 years now, on top of TMJ pain, whiplash accidents and multiple concussions, my body was in a constant state of discomfort and pain. Exhausted of being pumped full of drugs for the sake of short term relief, doctors pretty much told me I was SOL unless I wanted to continue being a test subject to whatever pill came out next, or surgery for my jaw. I felt like I've tried everything; specialists, acupuncture, chiropractor, physical therapy, etc. I basically convinced myself that this was my life now and to buckle up for the challenging ride of living with chronic pain and accept it as normal, after all, there's nothing more that could be done, right?... Corey has been the first person to tell me that I CAN and WILL be able to find relief (excuse me, what?!), he's been the first person willing to work with me and show me that I'm not a lost cause. I don't quite understand his line of work, but you can feel the passion he has for it, and the passion for caring for others. He is always willing to pause what he's doing and explain the "why" behind things. It's super fascinating and I learn so much each session. I feel like a completely new person. Each day I'm in awe that I can live without pain, for so long I had no idea what that would feel like. I recommend Thrive to anyone and everyone. In your session you can expect honesty, professionalism, care,  and a few corny jokes from time to time ;)  THANK YOU!

I’ve been to a number of acupuncturists and never realized that acupuncture could work so fast! He was the only one who got rid of my frozen shoulder and only after 2 visits! I had increased range of motion after ther first. He’s very warm and put me immediately at ease. I highly recommend him!

I experienced Richard to be as knowledgeable as he is compassionate and understanding. He takes the necessary time to understand the problem fully before prescribing any therapy. I personally find his method of combining both acupuncture and massage very effective. I have been amazed that certain aspects of my injury never returned after just one treatment. I always looked forward to my next visit and consistently experienced continued healing. Spending time with Rich is also a very enjoyable experience as he is quite a pleasant young man.

Christine helped to relieve pain in both my elbow and knee from injury, as well as some chronic back pain. I'd never had acupuncture before, and she made me feel comfortable. Christine has used a variety of techniques with me including acupuncture, cupping and scraping. Cupping is my favorite! She's very knowledgable, and has a lot of other suggestions for making your body perform and feel better on a daily basis.

      I am a HUGE chicken when it comes to needles! But given enough discomfort from scarring after surgery, and I was willing to let Samantha talk me into acupuncture. She is brilliant! She told me to close my eyes and she would take care of me. I cannot believe I would HIGHLY suggest you give her a chance - she seriously changed my mind, my life, and my outlook!

      If I told you that Dogwood City was saving my life, I'm not even sure that'd be doing it justice. I've tried several different acupuncturists, and nobody has been able to give me genuine pain relief until I saw Kait. So strongly recommend.

      About

      With my back round as a massage therapist specializing in therapeutic work I am able to combine those two modalities to enhance healing. I am very results oriented and use whatever tools I can to ensure rapid results. If I feel I cannot be helpful I will refer my patients out as the most important issue is the patient's speedy recovery to a normal healthy life. I enjoy the interaction that I have with my patients. Much of what I do is like being a detective. It isn't enough to know what the patient is experiencing. A good practitioner must also discover what has led up to the problem. Often there are many issues or causes of which the patient is not aware. My job is to figure out what they are and then try to set things right. But the thing I like most about my work is when I hear the words, " I feel better!".

      About

      I come from a western medical background, and I have been in practicing traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) since 1993. As I have matured as a healer, my spiritual path has led me to more holistic forms of healing and being. In my private practice, I keep an open mind and stay abreast with the modern applications of this ancient healing art. Having a strong background in western medicine, I am naturally curious concerning the relationship between Eastern and Western medicine, and seek to understand how they can complement each other. I am part owner of a healing arts center called Opening To Life. I maintain my private practice in this beautiful building on the NE side of Portland, accessible from I-84 and I-5. It is my treatment practice preference to schedule only one person at a time. By doing so, this creates an opportunity where you can be fully heard and where you will receive my undivided attention. This time, intensive arrangement reflects my deepening commitment to this healing art. You can find your balance, optimize your level of wellness, experience the benefits and glow of your own radiant good health and well-being.

      What are the benefits of acupuncture?

      There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

      How does acupuncture work?

      Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

      Is it safe to use acupuncture?

      The general consensus from doctors, researchers and government health organizations is that yes, it is safe to have acupuncture. As with all things, there can be some risks associated with acupuncture, but with proper attention to a few key details, your health should be in good hands when you receive treatments.

      The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (a branch of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services) states that “relatively few complications from using acupuncture have been reported. Still, complications have resulted from use of non-sterile needles and improper delivery of treatments.” Thus, the health risks associated with acupuncture are generally a result of human error (non-sterile needles and improper placement) as opposed to how acupuncture works in your body. Research your acupuncture provider to make sure they meet state regulations, and inquire about the use of FDA-regulated acupuncture needles. These are classified as medical devices for use by licensed practitioners, and the NCCIH states they are required to be manufactured and labeled according to certain standards (sterile, nontoxic, and labeled for single use only).

      What is an acupuncture treatment?

      An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.
