Rebecca here, EXTREMELY proud and excited to announce the addition of a NEW ACUPUNCTURIST to my Portland office (yay! cheering in the background, huzzah!!!)
Jonathan Irvin, LAc graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in Newton, MA in 2015 and has a passion for helping patients unlock their healing potential using Chinese Medicine.
With a history as an urban farmer before finding his way to Chinese Medicine, herbs are of particular interest to him and I couldn't more excited by the fact that he is offering herbal consultations in addition to Acupuncture treatments for those who might be on the fence about the needle part, but want the incredible healing that goes along with 3,000 years of Chinese Medicine.
Jonathan is also an accomplished Tuina (chinese bodywork) practitioner, so he will also be offering 90 minute Acupuncture + Massage treatments. One of the best options available, especially for auto accidents and injuries.
He is offering hours on Saturday to start and we're hoping to expand that into the week as quickly as possible. We are also working away on contracting him with insurance companies, so for now treatments must be paid for out of pocket only (except for car accidents and worker's compensation, no network contracts for those!). We hope the first insurance companies will come online within a few weeks, so please don't hesitate to email anytime to ask about Jonathan's in-network status.
Jonathan will be accepting Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield, Pacificsource, MODA, Providence, Kaiser and United Healthcare plans in network as quick as we can make that happen.
So please book now if you want to get in on the awesome weekend hours, and stay tuned to the FAQ page for updates about Jonathan's in network status.
Hooray! Happy December everyone, great time to book in for the holidays!
