About Us

Meet Our Team

Elements Holistic Wellness was the first integrated wellness clinic in Clackamas County. We are passionate about providing one-stop holistic care for any need. That is why we offer every type of treatment, including those treatments falling under Traditional Chinese Medicine like acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, qigong, gua sha, tui na, herbalism, nutrition, and more. We also believe that other treatment opportunities work synergistically with TCM. Because of this, we provide massage therapy, manual therapies, cranial sacral therapy, guided imagery, color breathing, pranic healing, and more. We have also established a network of medical professionals and can help facilitate outside therapies as needed.

We are deeply committed to supporting local artists and craftspeople. You can find out more about our favorite local products and additional offerings here at Elements Holistic Wellness by giving us a call or coming in. We would love to see you here!

Functional Medicine
