Krishna Avalon- Portland Acupuncturist

krishnaKrishna earned a Masters in Acupuncture from the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle, WA in 2002 and holds licensing through the NCCAOM (L.Ac).

She has over 14 years of experience treating a wide range of imbalance from anxiety and womens’ health to pain management and addiction. She has had the honor of helping many women get pregnant naturally through Traditional Chinese Medicine or in combination with IVF/IUI, and western medical intervention. Krishna’s style of needling is very gentle. Often she treats children for such things as allergies, asthma, and digestive issues.

Along with acupuncture, she practices energy work in the forms of Reiki, craniosacral therapy, and sound healing through tuning forks and singing bowls. She holds a MS in nutrition but addresses food according to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), rather than through western paradigm, helping patients understand food as medicine. Her approach to therapy is very unique in that she is hands on during an entire session, combining a variety of healing modalities into each session.

Another inspiration for Krishna is to assist patients in the reduction or elimination of pharmaceutical drugs, especially when patients find no relief when taking these drugs.  Acupuncture has been a very helpful treatment for patients who wish to eliminate side effects from prescriptions or detoxify from a drug entirely.
