1 of Top 2 Best Acupuncturist 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.
Hi, I’m Sheridan! I specialize 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
I graduated with a BS in Computer and Information Sciences from Cleveland State University. After serving five years in the United States Air Force, I moved to Portland. I then spent 23 years working at my 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, I decided to join her to take care of the business end of the clinic. My 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 me to tears. I feel incredibly blessed to work in this environment, with my favorite person in the world, my wife, Lisa.
Tina Bullock, Creative Care Engineer
I’ve worked with RiverWest Acupuncture since 1999 and have enjoyed watching ‘alternative’ health care grow into an integral part of the healthcare system. I moved to Oregon and began working in the healthcare field after receiving my bachelor’s degree in psychology and Criminal Justice. My intention is for each patient is to receive a knowledgeable, compassionate, and respectful experience with each visit. My personal interests include reading, digital photography and being with my cat.
Emily Anderson, Dynamic Systems Coordinator
Hi, I’m Emily! I was born and raised in Portland and have been a part of the RiverWest team since 2015. You’ll find me at the front desk scheduling patients and working on a myriad of ever-changing creative projects. I’m proud to be a part of a healing clinic that is led by such a talented team of knowledgeable and strong women. When I’m not at the clinic, my favorite place to be is soaking up the (rare) sunshine on the balcony with my very floofy cat, Ellie.
