As a life-time athlete myself, I know being side-lined from an activity you love can have drastic effects on your physical and mental well-being. Acupuncture a great tool for restoring balance to the body, treating injury & improving athletic performance. Let me help you heal faster & move better!
As a lifelong athlete and one who has been frequently injured – I understand what it means to get side-lined by pain and/or injury. I know that “just stop doing that” isn’t an acceptable treatment plan. I know that your sport is more than just physical activity; it is your social life, your sanity, and your joy. I know that injuries aren’t just physical and that the mental aspect of healing can sometimes be the hardest part. I know that you are more than your injury and your sport. Whether you play sport for fun or compete for your livelihood or just want get out of bed in the morning without pain – I want to help you heal faster and move better. Acupuncture is useful for a wide variety of conditions and as a core philosophy takes a holistic view of health and you as individual – everything is connected! However, my particular area of expertise and interest is in treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, injuries, pre and post-surgical rehab, and athletic performance.
Hi, I’m Alexis. I’m a sports medicine acupuncturist, an anatomy geek, a powerlifter, an avid reader, a movement enthusiast and am endlessly fascinated by the capability and resilience of the human mind and body. From an undergraduate degree in neuroscience where I spent my time in a basement room running brain damaged rats through mazes to test their memory in Maine; to studying acupuncture and Chinese medicine in San Diego and having the opportunity to intern with world renowned sports medicine acupuncturist Matt Callison; to moving to Portland and starting Anatomy Acupuncture – I have an unrelenting interest in how we as humans function. I am curious about our bodies and brains – why we have pain and how we can feel and move better. I am grateful on a daily basis for a skill set and profession I am wildly passionate about and to all the patients who give me the privilege of being part of their healthcare team.
