Welcome to Vegan Acupuncture! A website dedicated to helping give you information about healthy living and learning more about Traditional Chinese Medicine. I will be posting lots of vegan and gluten-free recipes too!
I decided to create this site for those interested in Chinese Medicine and or a vegan lifestyle. Maybe you are interested in both or just want some tools to revitalize your health. Either way have a browse around and enjoy! Thanks for visiting!!!
Genevieve Johnson- L.Ac., M.Ac.OM
Genevieve graduated from Bastyr University in 2003 with a BS in Health Psychology and pre-medical sciences. At Bastyr she was exposed to acupuncture and became very intrigued by Chinese Medicine. She had chronic allergies and asthma since childhood and sought out acupuncture with great success. She was so impressed with the results from acupuncture that she enrolled in Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) in Portland, Oregon to become an acupuncturist.
After graduation Genevieve worked as a resident acupuncturist onboard a Holland America ship. She loved the opportunity to travel and treat so many people with acupuncture. Since she missed the ocean so much she decided to go the coast. She then owned and operated the Acupuncture & Natural Medicine Clinic in Cannon Beach, Oregon for the past 5 years. Genevieve started Portland Family Acupuncture and is super happy to be back in Portland at two locations: SOMA Trauma Therapy and Portland Wellness Professionals.
Genevieve has practiced acupuncture in various clinical settings in Portland which include: Integrated Medicine Group, Central City Concern drug addiction rehabilitation clinic, Hollywood Senior Care center, Oregon Health Sciences University clinic, and OCOM clinic.
Genevieve has been licensed to practice in the state of Oregon and is board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) since 2008. She has a gentle style and loves to incorporate body work and shiatsu into her acupuncture treatments. Her real passion is healthy vegan food that she gets to enjoy with her family… careful if you start talking about amazing recipes it will be hard to get her to stop!!!
