1 of Top 2 Best Acupuncturists in Portland!
We are so excited and proud to have been named one of the top two best acupuncturists in Portland recently. Our goal is to offer a unique and holistic healing experience to our patients. We do this through the collaboration we enjoy with each other. In our 22+ years in practice, we have cultivated a solid network of professional practitioners to ensure our patients are always receiving the best support. When our patients need it, we collaborate with other healers so that you, our patient, get the best care possible. Some of those healers are co-located with us here at RiverWest Acupuncture.
Lisa C. Francolini, L.Ac., Owner
Lisa is committed to rewriting the “50+ women are past their prime” story and empowering them to dream big and thrive through both physical and mental agility. After 20 years as a licensed acupuncturist, she is knowledgeable and passionate about helping her Peri-to-Post menopausal patients flourish in their later years.
Sheridan Horning, L.Ac.
Sheridan specializes in treating the physical, mental, and emotional components of pain. When most people are in pain, it’s almost impossible for them to be as brilliant as this world needs them to be.
Beverly Wells, CEO
Bev graduated with a BS in Computer and Information Sciences from Cleveland State University. After serving five years in the United States Air Force, she moved to Portland. Bev then spent 23 years working at her sister’s business in the world of phone systems, data networks and constantly changing technology. In 2010, Lisa wanted to expand RiverWest Acupuncture. She could not do that and see her normal patient load. Thus, Bev decided to join her to take care of the business end of the clinic. Her greatest thrill is to see a patient walk in with “issues” and walk out changed as a result of the work that the practitioners do here. Some patient stories have been so healing and transformative that they literally brought her to tears. She feels incredibly blessed to work in this environment, with her favorite person in the world, her wife, Lisa.
Tina Bullock, Creative Care Engineer
Tina has worked with RiverWest Acupuncture since 1999 and has enjoyed watching ‘alternative’ health care grow into an integral part of the healthcare system. Tina moved to Oregon and began working in the healthcare field after receiving her bachelor’s degree in psychology and Criminal Justice. Her intention is for each patient is to receive a knowledgeable, compassionate, and respectful experience with each visit. Her personal interests include reading, digital photography and being with her cat.
Emily Anderson, Dynamic Systems Coordinator
Emily was born and raised in Portland and has been a part of the RiverWest team since 2015. You’ll find her at the front desk scheduling patients and working on a myriad of ever-changing creative projects. She’s proud to be a part of a healing clinic that is led by such a talented team of knowledgeable and strong women. When she’s not at the clinic, her favorite place to be is soaking up the (rare) sunshine on the balcony with her very floofy cat, Ellie.
