Lara D. Dilkes L.Ac. MSAOM

Founder of PDX Acupuncture, The Friendly Acupuncture Clinic!

While I was living in Hope, Alaska, a man called Skip, who was the "healer in town", introduced me to acupressure. He showed me that healing with natural medicine can be incredibly beneficial to health and a lot of fun at the same time.

Ever since then, my goal has been to practice friendly, fun and effective medicine. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine is mysterious for most people who aren't emerged in it for years as I have while becoming a practitioner. Most people just want to know if it hurts!!

I'm fully aware of this. As a result, I have remained focused on making this alternative medicine and its theory as comfortable as possible and easily understood for those wanting more answers.

I believe each and every person who walks through my door is there for a reason. And I am willing to spend as much time and energy as needed to find out not only why, but how to get you to a more healthy place in your life.

I trust my patients, as far as where they are in their path to better health. I want them to feel comfortable letting me know what kind of change or result they are ready for each visit, because every day can be is different in the healing process.

Each person who works in my clinic or onsite at a business feels just the same . We want you to feel like you "get" Acupuncture and comprehend what it can do for you!

In Good Health,

Regan Goodrich

My name is Regan Goodrich and I can't stop! Can't stop riding my bike, living through curiosity, dancing, walking my dogs, thinking about happiness, travelling, making new friends, giggling, eating good food, and loving everyday.

I hail from Michigan and have migrated westward in the spirit of adventure. A decade in Bend, Oregon has left me sun-kissed and inspired. Inspired to learn more, live more, and love more. Portland whispered my name and I listened.

Massage is a healing tool, an opportunity to explore and learn more about the human body and its potential to be super. Our somatic ability to respond and adapt to everyday living and stressors is amazing. Within this dynamic world, I am compelled to provide individuals with accessible solutions for optimal health.

As my knowledge increases and my skillsets expand, I continually strive to help people push the refresh button. My hope is that clients leave my care better, calmer, and more balanced and connected to their being. With that connection we are able to become more in tune with our neighbors, our natural world, and our universal truths.

Lenore Cangeloso

Hiya, my name is Lenore! I first became acquainted with Acupuncture during a trip thru rural China in 2010- when I found out I was seated next to the villages main physician at a tiny tea house. I stuck out my tongue, made him feel my pulse and SHAZAM- He knew all that ailed me. From then on I was hooked and began to explore the full potential of this ancient medical philosophy.

I like to use Acupuncture to tap into the boundlessness of the body's healing capability. I am amazed by the magic and intrinsic beauty that life offers and am in constant awe of the human form. I hope to instill a sense of hope and wellbeing during our time together. Realizing that health a multifaceted state, together we can work to bring balance into all of these aspects. With the help of herbal remedies, nutritional guidelines, and mindfulness practices we can work to guide you toward optimal health.
