L.A.c (Chinese Medicine)
Hi I'm Genevieve
I was born and raised in Portland Or. As child I grew up being incredibly physically active. I enjoyed any form of play that involved movement. I was competitive in soccer, softball, and basketball. When at home I strapped skates on my feet and skated around the concert floor of my basement. Later I fell in love with dance. While studying dance at the University of Washington I found a class that opened my eyes to my future, the anatomy of movement.
In 2007 I began studying Chinese Medicine at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. When I started the medicine seemed like magic. As I progressed through the program I saw the connections between western medicine and eastern. The classes I most enjoyed were those surrounding anatomy and movement. After graduation I continued working at the college as a Teaching Assistant so I could further my knowledge of structural diagnosis and anatomy.
My practice in Oregon is built around sports medicine. To deepen my understanding of structural assessment I gained my Personal Training Certification from the National Association of Sports Medicine. I love applying my knowledge of strength training and functional anatomy with healing of Chinese Medicine.
Although my area of expertise is in pain management, injury recovery, and athletic training I don't limit my practice to just that. Chinese medicine gives me the tools to help just about any patient. From the common cold to fertility this medicine can have a positive impact. If you any questions about how acupuncture could help you please call.
