Acupuncture and Oriental MedicineTestimonial

"I sure wish Erica still lived in Portland. I have not had a good facial rejuvenation or acupuncture session in a very long time. My skin misses her and her magic needles. I can see a difference in my skin from the time we worked together. Plus the laughter we shared was such a welcome part of her treatment."   -Sharol 

"I came to Erica with a tendinitis in my elbow, being a little unsure of whether acupuncture would help with this issue or not. I did not want to go the route of pain killers and/or cortisone injections just yet so I thought I'd give it a try. It took about 7 treatments but my pain did go away, and I could feel an improvement after each session. In addition, I liked that Erica took the time to listen to me and to adjust the treatment to whatever was appropriate at the time" -Katrin 

"After attempting to quit smoking several times, Erica helped me control my cravings through her practice in acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Ever since my first experience with Erica I've truly been able to listen to my body and relax without the need of cigarettes. She's very skilled in her practice, with a great wealth of kindness
and knowledge."- Mike 

"I've seen Erica West for several acupuncture sessions, and it has been a great experience. She is clearly a very knowledgeable and experienced acupuncturist, who uses a variety of other Oriental modalities to create a holistic approach to working with the body. Moreover she is very pleasant and warm, and provides the perfect healing environment. As someone who has a very physical job and life, these sessions are becoming key to my body maintenance, and I look forward to continuing our sessions together." -Lucinda 

"I first went to see Erica several months after ending a long relationship with antidepressants. I was feeling anxious and ungrounded and was afraid that I really needed the medication. Discussing personal matters is tough, but Erica made me feel at ease, and within a couple of months I'd forgotten how scattered I'd felt when treatment began. No need for meds at all. Not only has acupuncture helped me mentally and emotionally, but it has relieved chronic plantar fasciitis pain that at times has been so bad that only cortisone shots have helped. Erica is very good at what she does and continues to help me tackle any issue that surfaces in interesting, effective ways. I'm so glad I found her!" -Maureen 

"Erica is fantastic! Her treatments, always delivered with grace and understanding, have helped both my wife and me feel physically better and mentally sharper. You can feel the chi (qi) flow! And because of her enthusiasm and encouragement, we have also begun to take tai-chi classes and practice a revised form of qigong. Thank you Erica!" -Eric
