Our Team; 1 of Best Acupuncturist in Portland

1 of top 2 best acupuncturist in Portland!

I am so excited and proud to have been named one of the top two best acupuncturist in Portland recently.   Our goal is to offer a unique healing experience to our patients.   We do this through the collaboration we enjoy with each other.  In addition, when our patients need it, we collaborate with other healers, so that you, our patient gets the best care possible.   Some of those healers are co-located with us here at RiverWest Acupuncture.   Others are practitioners that we have come to know and trust over our 22+ years in practice.   We feel we have a solid network to support our patients.

CEO of best acupuncture clinic in Portland

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, Bev moved to Portland.  She 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.

Emily Anderson

Emily Anderson, Dynamic Systems Solutions

As a “Native Oregonian”, Emily graduated from Linfield college in 2008 with a degree in Psychology and Studio Art. She has always been interested in human development from both a scientific and sociological perspective. In college, Emily worked on several research projects examining the ways in which the representation of women in the media is changing how girls develop their sense of self. The more she learned, the more she began to recognize how important it is to acknowledge people as dynamic individuals, rather than just a diagnosis or set of symptoms.

She says that it is truly exciting to finally work in a field and a clinic that puts such time and thought into providing individuals with the care they need to heal – emotionally and physically. As she continues to grow with RiverWest Acupuncture, Emily hopes to further pursue her passions in holistic nutrition, sassy jokes and cats.
