About Us

Amy Brose Mendenhall, LAc.

Amy believes that acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be seamlessly integrated into the world of medicine that we have today.  It can be used to treat any condition, but it’s a very successful therapy for issues that have failed ‘conventional’ treatments.

Amy has always had one foot in the world of Western medicine and one foot in the world of Eastern medicine.  She worked as a clinical research assistant at Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU) in the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, studying end stage liver disease and Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis prior to her acupuncture training.

Amy graduated from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) in Portland in 2004.  She is Board Certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

Amy still has a strong interest in acupuncture research.  She is a member of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and an affiliate of the Society for Acupuncture Research (SAR).   She helps review research studies involving acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine at OCOM.

While she enjoys treating any condition with Chinese Medicine, she likes to focus on chronic pain, insomnia and migraine headaches.  Amy is dedicated to collaboratively working with other health care providers, including physicians, chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, physical therapists, interventional pain physicians, osteopaths, personal trainers, counselors and any other providers who have the patient’s best interest at heart.

Amy is a member of the Oregon Pain Society and the American Academy of Pain Management.  She is also an active member of the Rotary Club of Sherwood.

In her free time, she enjoys mountaineering in the Cascades, rock climbing, hiking and camping, knitting hats and scarves for friends and reading great books.
