Welcome to Portland Family Acupuncture, promoting health for the whole family with Genevieve Johnson, licensed acupuncturist and integrative herbalist. Portland Family Acupuncture offers affordable acupuncture, herbs, shiatsu and nutrition therapy for the community. Portland Family Acupuncture is run by Genevieve Johnson L.Ac. and works with a wonderful group of providers for greater health and healing opportunities.
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 5 years. She is excited to be in Portland again and working at Portland Wellness Professionals and SOMA Trauma Therapy; where she has been for 3 years.
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.
