What Is an Acupuncture
Your first visit is a comprehensive health review. Our purpose is to connect the dots. Everything is connected, whether it is how your low back affects your hips and knees, or how digestion affects inflammation, immune function, allergies, or how your sleep and stress levels damage your mood and increase pain.
Your provider uses Chinese medicine as a tried-and-true organizational system to understand the root of the problem and create a strategy to help you reach your best possible health. We also pride ourselves on translating acupuncture and Chinese medicine into modern, scientific language that patients and providers can understand.
Have you ever watched a professional athlete or musician perform effortlessly? That is because of muscle memory. That muscle memory comes from practice and training.
Just like those performers, we can develop muscle memories or habits that can cause pain, digestive problems, or sleeplessness. Those are bad muscle memories.
Acupuncture alters the electricity (ion balance) in your body that controls the:
- Muscular system
- Nervous system
- Endocrine system
- Cardiovascular system
- Respiratory system and
- Immune system
For many conditions, you should experience relief during your visit. And over a short period, we create physiological change so that relief stays longer and longer. That means the body develops better muscle memories so that you get better and stay better.
Don’t get us wrong. We do NOT want to see you all the time forever. Our goal is that you get better and feel the value of keeping up with your health. Then, you know when your body needs a tune-up. You can drop in once in a while and share your success with your friends and family because your referral is the best compliment.
It’s Time to Transform Your Health
Every patient is unique, but one thing they all have in common is that 100% of them wished they started sooner
Car accidents can lead to massive amounts of trauma to your body. We specialize in helping with conditions like whiplash, concussion, and more.
Back Pain and Sciatica
Whether your back pain is severe and hard to treat or a nagging daily ache, acupuncture for back pain can help.
Headaches and Migraines
Acupuncture can manage and resolve the underlying causes and tension that lead to recurring, debilitating, or serious headaches.
Unsure what’s causing pain and soreness in your neck? Our Portland acupuncturists can detect the underlying cause and help give you the relief you need.
Suffering from tingling, pain, and numbness in your hands and fingers? Acupuncture can help resolve your carpal tunnel symptoms. Here’s how.
We often take our knees for granted until it’s too late. Acupuncture can help you avoid more invasive surgeries and medications when your knees are in pain.
If you need stress relief, better sleep, and trauma recovery support, your friends at The WellBridge Clinic can help.

First off, acupuncture is NOTHING even remotely close to getting a shot at the doctor’s office. That’s a big chunky needle, ours are the thickness of a hair. Honestly, most people either fall asleep or report feeling deeply relaxed. That is because we reset the electrical rhythms of your body. If you feel any sensations or even pain, it should last only a FRACTION of a second. It’s true there are clumsy nurses, doctors, and acupuncturists and sometimes it can hurt.
Our team of providers have provided over 30,000 acupuncture treatments. We treat people who are 8 months old to 88 years old. We are gentle and meet people where ever they are in life. We are pretty good at what we do and we know that when you relax, your nervous systems relaxes, and your body can heal quicker.

This place is great. From front desk to treatment. Everyone is inviting and makes you feel comfortable. I’ve never done cupping or acupuncture before and from start to finish the process was explained and made me at ease. See you in a week!!
Awesome acupuncturist and cupping. John Rybak has been a huge help in my healing process, physically, mentally, and habitually.
I was sent here due to an auto accident I was in. I have felt nothing but truly cared for and treated respectfully every time I’ve been here over the last few months. Everything slowly seems to be feeling better! Everyone who works here is a genuine kind individual.
Excellent experience! My practitioner, Dr. Harrop, is extremely talented and knowledgeable. I’ve had only two treatments so far but can feel a considerable improvement in my overall wellness. Friendly and professional staff. Really terrific clinic.
Kayla is an extremely skilled and gifted acupuncturist who has helped me enormously with some long term (chronic) health issues. I’m very, very grateful that she is part of the WellBridge team. Everyone who works there from the front desk staff to the acupuncturists are very kind, patient and helpful.
This is the best treatment plan I’ve ever experienced! The staff is knowledgeable and open to my questions. They accept my insurance and work appointments around my schedule. I had back problems. Conventional medical treatment suggested surgery but Wellbridge has me back on my feet and feeling strong.
The whole staff here are kind and considerate, listening well to any concern you have. I was sent here with a wrist injury with lingering pain that just wasn’t improving, but the acupuncture has helped so many other issues for me! The doctors were treating my wrists but lowered my anxiety and really helped me sleep better. It’s a holistic look at your health and whatever issue you have will improve.
The WellBridge Clinic and particularly Dr. Kayla have changed my life! Kayla patiently listened to all of my concerns and continues to offer helpful recommendations ranging from vitamins to take to places to hike that address my mental and physical health. I had no idea acupuncture could do this for me before I came to this clinic! After a few weeks I already feel much better and really look forward to my appointments at this clinic!
This clinic has the best staff! They do a great job working with your schedule and making sure you are getting exactly what you need. The treatments are relaxing and they always make a point to focus on your problem areas even if it changes each visit. So happy I decided to get back into acupuncture with WellBridge.
Great central location. All staff are caring & friendly. John provides thorough, effective treatments. He is compassionate and concerned for your well-being. He takes your entire health profile into consideration. I’ve enjoyed my treatments.
I always walk in hurting sometimes barely able to move but I always leave feeling better rejuvenated and hopeful that life has more than just pain for me. John and his colleagues know how to make you feel better and give you the best solution for the problem that you’re experiencing.
John and the staff at Wellness Clinic have proven to be extremely responsive and knowledgeable. Working with them, you get the sense that they actually really care about you and your health. I feel heard and that the experience is more of a collaboration rather than having some protocol imposed on be. I very much appreciate them and would recommend them without hesitation.
