About

My name’s Rich, and I’m a licensed acupuncturist and massage therapist practicing in Portland, Oregon. I specialize in the treatment of pain, injury, and sports related conditions.

Please feel free to call, text, or email if I can be of service to you, or if I can respond to your questions about my medical practice. I’m also happy to provide free consultations to anyone who’s interested in learning more about this medicine and how it can help.

Thanks for considering me as a medical practitioner; I look forward to hearing from you!

History

I’m a graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (2011) and the Arcata School of Massage (2008). As of November 2018, I have 7 years of experience as an acupuncturist and 10 years of experience as a massage therapist. I’ve focused on the treatment of pain, injury, and sports related conditions for my entire career. During this time I’ve helped more than a thousand patients with all manner of pain and injury, including patients who’ve seen little to no results with other practitioners. I pride myself on thinking creatively and comprehensively when treating the problems that face me daily at my office.

Personal

In addition to my professional degrees and certificates, I hold a BA in philosophy with a focus in Theravadan Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy. I’ve spent over 6 months practicing meditation in Buddhist monasteries, and I continue to pursue this art with dedication. For fitness, I regularly run, lift weights, and practice Qi Gong. I’m also active in several of Portland’s literature and philosophy communities, including as executive director of The People’s Colloquium – a nonprofit that provides free education in the arts and humanities. Perhaps the moments I cherish most are those spent with my partner Emily and our dog Sunny (who’s pictured nibbling on a favorite treat, though in truth, all treats are his favorite :-D).
