MEET THE TEAM
THERESA ATCHLEY, MAOM, LAC
Terry Atchley received her Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MAOM) from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2013 and has practiced acupuncture in Portland, Oregon since. Terry is currently participating in the Sports Medicine Acupuncture Certification (SMAC) program. This doctorate level course provides advanced training in the assessment and treatment of sports, work and orthopedic injuries. The training uses functional anatomy, range of motion testing, orthopedic examinations, manual muscle testing and palpation to improve treatment outcomes. She will complete the course in April 2023.
Terry is native of New Orleans who graduated from Loyola University with a degree in Sociology. Terry initially discovered the benefits of acupuncture when she was recovering from a sprained ankle many years ago.
Her focus is in treating and assessing sport, work and orthopedic related injuries, women’s health, anxiety and digestive issues. Terry uses a combination of acupuncture and bodywork including tuina massage, Gua Sha, Cupping and Moxa to help the body return to a balanced and healthy state.
Terry has repeatedly traveled to Nepal as a volunteer practitioner for the Acupuncture Relief Project. The Acupuncture Relief Project is a non-profit organization that provides primary health care to remote regions of Nepal. This humbling experience provided the opportunity for Terry to treat a multitude of illnesses and to develop a deep connection with people through compassion and healing. She remains inspired by the resilience and generosity of the Nepali people.
Terry is an avid traveler who enjoys learning about different cultures and meeting new people. She is an outdoor enthusiast who loves planning new adventures and spending time with her dog, three cats and husband.
