What I didn't know when I became an acupuncturist: How deeply touched--and motivated-- I would be by my patient's stories, their struggles, and their trust.
Favorite words to hear in the clinic: "Really good" and "Much better" or "Wow, that's amazing!"
What I do on (many) weekends: Provide continuing education classes for acupuncturists from all over the world. Thanks to my wife, Holly, who makes this--and almost everything else that is a good and enjoyable in my life--possible.

Amanda Cameron, LMT, Licensed Massage Therapist
Recent travel destinations: My husband, JD, and I are somewhat new to Eugene, so we’ve been visiting a lot of beautiful parks and spending our time in nature. Some of our most recent adventures have taken us to McDowell Creek Falls, Cascadia Park, and Silver Falls.
Recent reads: I enjoy reading both fiction and nonfiction. I recently finished The Wildwood Trilogy by Colin Meloy, a nice light fairy tale-like adventure that takes place in Portland. Currently I am reading When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection by Gabor Mate, MD.
If I wasn’t a massage therapist I would: I would be a freelance professional organizer and travel the world in my spare time. That or be a jammer on a Roller Derby team.
What do I do on the weekend: I enjoy spending time in my garden or going on adventures with my family.
Tara Jones, Office Manager and Billing Specialist
Favorite things to do in the clinic: Talking with and laughing with patients, getting the acupuncture tools and supplies in the treatment rooms, and putting all that math I learned in junior high school to good use.
Current creative projects: Building planter boxes for my blueberry bushes out of old fence boards; making a scrumptious variety of flavors of Kombucha using fruit from my garden; recording a CD of love songs that I wrote.
Most recent travel destination: San Francisco, CA where I drank a chai latte so delicious that I still swoon thinking about it right before hearing the San Francisco Symphony perform Mahler's exquisite 7th symphony.
If I didn't work at the clinic: I would devote all my time to my daughters, my music, and my garden.
Recent reads: An article about art inspired by the fence along the Mexico - U.S. border, a chapbook of poetry by Joanna Brook, the first eight pages of an eight-hundred-page book about Ronald Reagan.
