“Wow. Life altering. Lara has outdone herself. Every acupuncture session now comes with a 15 min massage. I was fortunate enough to be tag teamed by Lara & Reagan who is what is known as a MMU. A magical massage unicorn! I have been seeing Lara for 5 yrs. and it just gets better & better. She herself is magic & has the ability to get to the root of the matter quickly. She is focused while being one of the warmest and friendliest therapists I have ever worked with. Today's session literally felt like Christmas. I was overjoyed with the new combo & I can't wait for my next session in two weeks. I literally feel brand new. ”

“After an incredibly LONG 4.5 month battle with a yeast infection in my breasts from feeding my newborn producing milk, Lara has helped me tremendously. Not only was this first experience with acupuncture wonderful, but each time I return she has researched more on my condition and has more to offer. I've been off antibiotics now for over a month thanks to Lara. Her clinic is centrally located. It is clean and modern. Her staff is WONDERFUL and friendly and they are very open to new patients who want to learn more about this non-invasive alternative method in helping your body fix itself. Yes, they accept insurance. Yes, I would recommend them to people of any age. Skeptical? Try it. You won't be sorry.”

“I must admit, I came in pretty skeptical of the benefits of acupuncture. My shoulder was giving me major issues after a bike accident, and when the doctors told me "Eh, looks fine..." I decided to seek alternative treatment.

“And all I can say is I'm a believer. Not only did it help my shoulder, it just feels amazing. Lara is great, she listens to what the problem is and helps troubleshoot with you ensuring a treatment that genuinely helps you. She really knows her stuff.

“Whether you've always been interested, or a seasoned pro, I can't imagine any place would fit the bill more than PDX Acupuncture. Take a trip to "acu-land!"

“(You would be crazy to pass up some "cupping" treatment with one of the LMT's while you were there.)”

“Lara is an exceptional acupuncturist. I have shoulder pain on and off. She treated this pain, but more importantly she created a calm and inviting atmosphere that put me entirely at ease. She is professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful.”

“Lara is a fabulous acupuncturist. She has carisma that calms and creates comfort. I feel confident referring her services and I appreciate her treatments myself. She takes the time with you and makes sure you leave feeling cared for and relaxed. I trust her with my qi any day.”

“Lara at PDX Acupuncture is a true gem. After living with lower back pain for over two years that originally occurred due to a bulging disk, I was starting to wonder if I would ever be able to walk without pain, sit without pay, and wake up without pain. Having already done physical therapy and chiropractic, I was always leery about acupuncture wondering how it could really help. Well, Lara works miracles and I couldn't be happier that I was referred to her. Lara takes the time to listen to your concerns and explains things in a manner that everyone can understand. She truly cares about her clients and loves what she does. After my first visit to PDX Acupuncture I felt relief in a way I hadn't yet. I knew deep down that this might just be the additional treatment that I needed to get ahead of my lower back pain. It only took several months for Lara to help me get ahead of my pain and now six months later, I sometimes forget I have a bad back and I never thought that would happen again. I am forever grateful to Lara at PDX Acupuncture and now am turning to Lara to help me with other health issues to aid in my overall wellbeing.”

“Having never tried acupuncture before, a friend of mine referred me to Lara at PDX Acupuncture. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable my first appointment was. Lara is very friendly and knowledgeable. I quickly learned how much acupuncture could improve my overall health. Lara does an excellent job informing and counseling me on my health; suggesting dietary changes and herbal supplements, as well as answering all of my questions. The treatments are very relaxing and I always leave feeling fantastic! I've been seeing Lara for almost a year, and my health has greatly improved since starting my treatments. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an acupuncturist.”

J. Todd

“The treatment I have received from Lara has been priceless. She is not only an amazing acupuncturist but a truly wonderful healer. Lara has been treating me for over 3 years now and continues to make my life better every time I see her. From easing my lower back and neck pain to helping with my digestive needs and of course bring an overall calming effect to my life. She truly is amazing and your life will be better once you leave her office!!”

“If you are thinking about acupuncture I would highly recommend visiting Lara at PDX Acupuncture. I decided to see Lara because of my desire to quit smoking. My first visit with her was very positive, calming and caring, which is a feeling that has been lost in the western practice. Each acupuncture session is peaceful and harmonious and every time I leave PDX Acupuncture I feel balanced and liberated. My desire to quit smoking has now become a whisper in the wind thanks to the help and advice of Lara. My wife and I are extremely grateful for her assistance and professionalism. I plan on asking her advice on weekly Powerball numbers... 8). So what are you waiting for? Give her a call! It's better then visiting a priest, I promise.”

“I would highly recommend Lara for acupuncture. I went to her to seek relief from chronic back pain and stomach issues. She was very receptive and listened to all of the symptoms and while I wasn't really expecting to find relief from my stomach issues, she was able to diagnose and resolve the stomach issues while helping with the back pain. I also had an additional surprise while we were discussing my issues I mentioned that I was recently diagnosed with an elevated glucose and Lara mentioned that she has background in Diabetes so we've been working on resolving that as well. Truly a one-stop shop and I really appreciate her caring, nurturing personality as well as her enthusiasm to help. It has been a very good experience and I would recommend her to anyone looking for acupuncture.”

M. Klauss

“I had slipped a disc playing flag football and I was in excruciating pain. I had tried some stretching, chiropractic's and yoga to relieve the pain. It wasn't until I saw Lara at PDX Acupuncture that I felt significant pain relief. I was skeptical because I had never had acupuncture and I wasn't a huge fan of needles. In less than an hour, I already felt better. Once I combined all the treatments for a a couple weeks, my back healed and I was back on my feet.”

T. Reed

“Yes, this article is true. You helped me to recover and I really appreciate that. Sorry for being out of touch so long... I'm still not totally 100% but I could tell a big difference when I started getting acupuncture. I think the only delay in healing back to "normal" is that I still continue to race which sometime aggravates the intercostals. All in all I am happy with the results and services you have provided thus far. I continue to improve and the anxiety from the injury has subsided.”

“I cannot tell you how beneficial my treatment was on Friday. It was interesting because my body responded immediately and by the next day much of the tension in my neck had diminished.

“I loved the Solopas patches -I am a huge fan of acupuncture and hope to have some clients to refer to you soon.”

J. Harnden

“I feel safe and beloved when I'm with Lara. She is easy going, wise, funny, compassionate and very skilled.”

“Just wanted to say that the results of last evening's session were nearly instantaneous. By the time I got home, I already had a very different outlook on things.”

A. Hyatt

“Just wanted you two very special ladies (Lara and the patients PT, Corrie) that I went down approximately 10 steps on the stairs one foot after the other twice yesterday!!! I wasn't doing that before my foot surgery last July 19th. All of the work each of you has put into my rehabilitation is finally showing great progress .. and I owe both of you for it.

“Thanks so much for being patient with me and for caring (so different from the first group of people who took care of me right after the surgery)!! You are both incredible!!”

Lynelle E.

“I have recommended Lara to several of my friends! I feel that she is extremely knowledgeable in her field of work. I was so impressed with the way she was so detailed with the first consultation. I feel she cares deeply for people and is in exactly the line of work she should be.”

Reed

“I have been seeing Lara since July for back pain, digestion issues, relaxation and overall health. Since then, I now nearly pain-free and in better health thanks to Lara! For the first time in my life I am able to completely relax, which is such an amazing feeling! I am so grateful for PDX Acupuncture and Lara's knowledge, understanding and passion for my health.”
