We have been serving the Columbia Gorge since 2005 with locations in Hood River (541-387-4325) and The Dalles (541-298-2378), Oregon. Between both locations we are open Monday through Saturday every week. Each clinic is wheelchair accessible, has marked customer parking as well as an ADA parking space and an ADA accessible gender neutral restroom. All of our chairs have arm-rests.
Treatment Options: Acupuncture, Custom Chinese Herbs, Allergy Elimination, Auriculotherapy
Many clients choose a combination of Acupuncture and Custom Chinese Herbs, to achieve the best results. In some cases, clients may simply prefer using just one of our treatment options i.e. only Acupuncture or Chinese Herbs alone. However, all Allergy Elimination clients receive Acupuncture treatments as part of the Allergy Elimination protocol.
Check out the article about Carola Stepper, LAc and Allergy Elimination in the Gorge Magazine, Spring 2018: Nothing to Sneeze At
We also offer Auriculotherapy (Ear Acupressure) treatments. We teach our clients how to do their own Ear Acupressure treatments and sell ready made Ear Acupressure kits for different health concerns.
We are happy to work with you to provide the best possible service based on your preferences and financial situation.
Our focus is the treatment of pain, however we treat many different conditions. We practice a very effective style of Acupuncture, called Distal Style and only needle below the elbows and the knees, never directly into a painful body area. Our clients only need to remove their shoes and socks and bare their forearms and lower legs and they often experience immediate pain relief!
We offer treatments in private rooms on massage tables with therapeutic heat pads by Shield Life or in our “Big Healing Room” with recliner chairs. Our electric Zero Gravity recliner chairs have heated Jade Crystals and offer massage as well, check out this video.
