Lindsey Armstrong, L.Ac.

I moved to Portland and opened this practice in 2003. I wanted to offer the benefits of Oriental Medicine, which includes acupuncture, Oriental diagnosis and Chinese herbs, to those working and living in the downtown area of Portland. I was well aware of the tensions that can occur when doing office work, and so I offer appointment times to help accommodate those who don't want to miss work to come in for a treatment (Saturday appointments available).
My own story started in England where my love of medicine began, and my travels through Europe, Canada and California broadened my awareness of the many different styles of healing. I enjoyed working at the Arthur Ashe multidisciplinary clinic at UCLA, while I was getting my degree in Oriental Medicine at Emperorís College in Santa Monica, CA. I also learned about Addiction Medicine at Cri-Help in Los Angeles, where

auricular (ear) acupuncture was combined with guided meditation for those seeking help with drug/medication or alcohol addiction.
I like to work with patients on an effective treatment plan that may include referring them to other practitioners in the area (chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, nutritionists or other western medical practitioners). The goal being that the patient can get the best all around care.
I handle the paperwork on any insurance coverage you may have. I am a participating provider for many of the health plans in our area, and will be glad to check to see if you have coverage prior to your visit. I look forward to answering any questions you may have and working with you on your health issues.
