Alexis is a recent transplant to the Pacific North West and is happy to call Portland her new home! A licensed acupuncturist with the state of Oregon, Alexis graduated magna cum laude from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA with a Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Neuroscience from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, ME. As a result of this degree she was awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Summer Fellowship to continue her research of the role of the hippocampus in episodic memory. Her work earned her an abstract submission in the Society for Neuroscience’s annual conference in 2004. Alexis retains a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine from the national certification board (NCCAOM) and acupuncture licenses in both Oregon and California. Alexis’ specialties are treating orthopedic/musculo-skeletal pain conditions as well Japanese style acupuncture.
Seeking a wide variety of experience, Alexis has had the opportunity to treat patients in such diverse places as the hematology/oncology ward of Rady Children’s Hospital as part of the department of Integrative Medicine, UCSD’s Pacific Beach Free Clinic Program to treat the underserved, the annual Vietnam Veteran’s Stand Down for homeless veterans, UCSD’s Downtown Free Clinic Program for the geriatric community, and UCSD’s RIMAC athletic training facility. Additionally, she spent two years apprenticing with well-known orthopedic acupuncturist, Matt Callison at his clinic learning sports medicine and injury rehabilitation protocols.
In conjunction with acupuncture, Alexis has studied Asian bodywork for several years and is a certified massage therapist by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB).For Alexis, acupuncture isn’t just about needles; she often includes bodywork and therapeutic exercise as part of her treatment.
