His patients find him for recovery and pain relief from accidents, sports injuries and chronic pain, they love him because of his expertise of nutrition and food as medicine from his former career as a chef. Bradley has just recently spent over a year in Tokyo and Okinawa, Japan, where he was studying, observing, and practicing in multiple acupuncture and herbal clinics.

As a fully trained acupuncturist, Bradley uses all his tools to help his patients reach their best possible health. Most treatment plans include acupuncture, Estim, cupping, massage, gua sha (graston/scraping), moxibustion, herbal prescriptions, nutritional and exercise coaching.

  • Chronic Pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Stress
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Cardiovascular health

Bradley’s path into the healing arts began as a teenager when he was introduced to and began practicing meditation and tai chi. At the same time, he saw the importance of exercise and nutrition as important pillars of health and longevity. This started a journey that took him all around the world where he studied yoga and Tibetan medicine in northern India and tai chi and herbal medicine in China.

His first experience of acupuncture was for the treatment of a painful frozen shoulder. It started after many years of his work as an executive chef. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine were able to restore full mobility in his shoulder and relieve his pain. It was this experience that eventually led him to transition from his culinary life and pursue acupuncture.

As an acupuncturist and health care provider Bradley’s focus is on pain relief, longevity, preventative care and empowering his patients to build healthy habits. He strives to ensure his patients get better and stay better. He does that through strategic treatment planning that incorporates nutrition, exercise, sleep, as well as stress reduction techniques.

Bradley believes strongly in developing an exceptional patient-practitioner relationship because the road to optimal health in based in teamwork between the patient and provider.

When Bradley is not in the clinic you can find him in the mountains and beaches of Oregon with his partner Yuuki and their dog Hoku.
