Come to South Portland to meet a “team of acupuncturists and practitioners dedicated to changing lives,” according to RiverWest Acupuncture’s website. Not only are RiverWest acupuncturists dedicated to improving the health of their patients, but they want to empower their “Portland acupuncture patients to live fully,” they “create strong relationships that lift patient health to new heights.” Examples of improvements they’ve seen in their patients over the past several years include alleviation of chronic pain to depression and migraines to seasonal allergies.
The acupuncturists at RiverWest Acupuncture view healing as a balance practice—a way to get and keep the human body in balance—which they have found “to be effective whether they are getting [their] patients out of pain, relieving morning sickness, relieving stress, helping patients sleep better, or simply supporting the body to fight a cold.” Their treatments include Chinese herbs, cupping, moxabustion, acupressure, and Qi Gong, as well as acupuncture.
RiverWest Acupuncture has been dedicated to the art of Traditional Chinese Medicine for almost two decades. They offer individual acupuncture treatments, cost-effective community acupuncture for those on a budget, intentionality-oriented relational acupuncture, and a veteran give back program. They also offer Pilates, Yoga, and Cooking Healthy for Kids. They plan to add a Ti-Chi class in the future. Visit their Upcoming Events and Classes page for detailed information.
