Cascade was started in 2005 at 104 5th Street in Hood River. The original owner hired the first Office Manager and Acupuncture Associate. This was the beginning of the team approach to care, which Cascade Acupuncture Center continues to expand upon until this day.
We envisioned, and created, a clinic setting that is warm and welcoming in part because the office space utilizes Feng Shui principles, but also because the treatments are delivered in soft leather recliner chairs with soothing massage and heating pads. This provides a unique environment, where both staff and clients enjoy a comfortable and calming clinic setting.
One year after opening the clinic in Hood River, Cascade Acupuncture Center opened their second location in The Dalles with the support of a business loan from the Mid-Columbia Economical Development Division. We purchased an established Acupuncturists practice, rented the 1000 square foot space and hired a second Office Manager and second Acupuncture Associate. In 2011 a 1500 square foot building was purchased in The Dalles and the clinic was relocated. In March of 2013 a third clinic was added; a satellite clinic in Stevenson, WA. The Stevenson Clinic was sold in March 2016 to a new owner, it is now called Skamania Acupuncture Clinic.
In 2018, we moved the Hood River clinic out of downtown to the West side at 2690 May Street, Suite 101 into a professional medical building, larger with 1500 square foot and with designated customer parking spaces.
Additionally, we added zero balance recliner chairs with heated jade crystals and massage in both clinics.
All clinics are wheelchair accessible and share the same amount of treatment rooms, colors, décor, and furniture.
Today, Cascade Acupuncture Center provides care to the people of the Mid-Columbia region with a caring team of employees: Three Licensed Acupuncturists, one Operations Manager, an Office Manager, Office Assistants, Marketing VP, Marketing Director and Administrative Operations Team. The staff members receive paid vacation time, holiday pay, matching retirement savings, bonuses and raises.
In 2007 and 2010 Cascade Acupuncture Center, LLC was awarded the Columbia Gorge Region Small Business of the Year Award by the Small Business Development Center.
