Kiné Fischler LAc, FABORM Clinic Director Licensed Acupuncturist + Herbalist

My clinical focus is OB/GYN, Reproductive Medicine, and internal medicine with a foundation of whole systems family medicine. My goal is to empower women of all ages with information about their reproductive and hormonal health, taking a holistic approach recognizing the vital connection of our emotional and physical selves. There are natural solutions for the challenges of hormonal fluctuations – women do not need to accept suffering as a normal part of the phases of their reproductive lives.

My Master’s Degree in the Science of Oriental Medicine was earned from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley, CA. Nationally Board Certified in Oriental Medicine: Acupuncture and Herbology.I have the distinguished honor of being a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine, specialty certification in fertility acupuncture and herbal medicine. I am also a proud member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

My mission is to treat each woman with individualized that care that addresses her particular nutritional needs, her own solutions for stress management and honors the emotional impact of physical symptoms that are deeply connected to each other.

Allie Machen, LAc, Licensed Acupuncturist

My journey into health care began in 2008 with the discovery of the doula profession.  I realized that birth support offered the opportunity to advocate for mother’s rights while leaving my heart and soul fulfilled at the end of the day.  I found that I was able to bring a calm, grounding presence and strong intuition to the birth environment.  As a result, many families experienced very powerful and positive birth experiences.  As time passed, my appetite for more knowledge became so strong that I realized I needed to return to graduate school.  After much deliberation I choose to pursue Chinese Medicine over midwifery.  While birth is still my passion, in Chinese Medicine I found a unique opportunity to empower patients to connect with their bodies and their health.

I strive to empower my clients through educational, emotional, and physical support around guiding their own pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum experiences.  I believe that Chinese Medicine can be a steadfast partner through this experience.  Through acupuncture, herbs, and bodywork we can find pause amidst the intense sensations and emotions that accompany the childbearing years.  Even more so, these modalities build upon the mind-body relationship that will lead us to trust our bodies throughout pregnancy, birth, lactation, and beyond.

Kate Saul, Licensed Acupuncturist

As an acupuncturist and herbalist, I wholeheartedly strive to give patient-centered care that allows patients to thrive and take ownership over their wellness. I love to empower those I work with to make the health decisions that are right for them and fit into their present lifestyle. I fully believe that patient education is one of the most powerful tools a practitioner can share and will work with you to create a team effort and partnership towards a healthier you.

My years of dedicated yoga practice and teaching, combined with my Chinese medical education, gives me unique insight into the body and its working. This combination allows me to more easily help with musculoskeletal injuries, recovering from a motor vehicle accident, or just understanding why your body won’t or can’t do certain movements efficiently. I often help students and patients with movements and exercises that bring correctional and natural alignment back into the body.

I enjoy treating a wide range of conditions, specifically, injury and pain management, women’s health, dermatology, anxiety and stress management, and sleep issues.

Molly Erickson, Licensed Acupuncturist

I first fell in love with Chinese Medicine as a patient. In my early 20s I was deeply
frustrated by several years of persistently poor health and lack of well-being. Finding no relief from Western medicine, I decided to try acupuncture, and over the course of the next few years it profoundly changed my life. So much so that I decided to pursue
Chinese medicine as a profession to be able to share that gift with others.

Drawn to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the reputation of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, I found my home in Portland, Oregon. My special interests as a
practitioner include pain relief, women’s health, fertility, digestive support, preventative medicine, and helping people who just aren’t feeling their best and don’t know why. I use all modalities of Chinese Medicine to get people back on their feet: acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary therapy, cupping, gua sha, electical stimulation, moxabustion and body work. Ultimately, my goal is to empower patients to take great care of themselves and cultivate more awareness around mind-body-spirit connection.

I am committed to providing a safe space to all LGBTQ patients and folks of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages and health concerns.
