Misako Yamamoto, MAcOM, LAc, Dipl OM
I was born in Kobe, Japan and raised in the Portland area speaking both English and Japanese. I received Bachelor degrees in Psychology and Japanese from the University of Oregon and my Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (2004). I have also been practicing Qi Gong since 2001 and am a certified Qi Gong teacher.
My approach to healing is primarily intuitive. I combine gentle Japanese acupuncture styles, coupled with Qi Gong, shiatsu massage and Chinese herbal therapies to bring about subtle changes in the bodies Qi (energetic life force). My specialties include women’s health as well as spirit & emotion-based illnesses.
