The fitness instructors, massage therapists, and holistic well-being specialists at Beaverton Healing Center all have the same mission: to create a positive learning and healing space. To that end, services are geared toward balancing mind, body, and spirit, with offerings such as private and group yoga classes, chakra clearings, and pregnancy massages. The center's motto is "you deserve good things" and that policy is followed from top to bottom—even the floors are cleaned with special H2O steam mops that also coo lullabies to your ankles.
The team of holistic healers at G & L Acupuncture and Wellness Center manipulates the body’s healing energies from the inside out with combinations of acupuncture, massage, and Chinese herbs. Disharmonious meridians wreaking havoc in the form of chronic pain, digestive issues, or headaches come into alignment with acupuncture or Tuina massage. Chinese herbs combine the benefits of plant-based medications with the joy of swallowing pills to maintain the therapeutic momentum of acupuncture and Tuina massage.
Although they adhere to the same philosophy of holistic healing, each member of the team brings their own unique skill set and experiences to the practice. Two acupuncturists with backgrounds working in a 500-bed Chinese hospital join together with an acupuncturist who trained in physical therapy and one who trained in applied physics.

Licensed acupuncturist Lisa Thorborg, founder of Aasa-Lisa's Acupuncture, has over 25 years of experience in Eastern and Western medicine. Having put in time as a physical therapist, she is able to diagnose maladies and symptoms, whereas as an Eastern-medicine practitioner, she focuses on treating root causes. During her acupuncture treatments, she uses small, hair-like needles to disrupt bodily imbalances of energy, attempting to treat chronic conditions such as arthritis, back pain, anxiety, and headaches.
Bodywork expertise and compassion collide at Metis Clinics, making treatments both physically and emotionally refreshing. The center's acupuncturists and massage therapists follow the lead of founder Anita Tadavarthy, who's not only a master of traditional Oriental Medicine, but also a humanitarian who ran a free treatment clinic in Repalle, India, for four months in 2007 and continues to donate 10% of her profits to the same clinic.
Today, the team at Metis addresses a wide range of chronic aches and wellness concerns, including back pain, migraines, and weight loss. In addition to traditional acupuncture and massage techniques, the practitioners use herbs, Tuina bodywork, cupping, and breathing exercises to help their clients find balance.
At Mountain Park Health Clinic, Dr. Kenneth Rifkin channels more than 30 years of experience in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture to attempt to bring down nail fungus with quick laser treatments. During the procedure, Dr. Rifkin administers a laser treatment to the nail bed, breaking down nail fungus with heat gentle enough not to wake any penguins the patient may be cradling. The heat aides in the treatment of the nail bed's infection, hopefully resulting in a gradual return of rosy, healthy nails. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and helps to bestow clients with confidence in their digits during winter vacations to the islands and postgame handshakes with the opposing team's hot-dog vendor.
