I cannot say enough good things aboutnLiz Richards and Blossom clinic. My husband and I embarked on our first IVF cycle last fall after a failed vasectomy reversal. We had been very frustrated with the lack of care we received through the reversal process and were thrilled when our wonderful fertility clinic recommended Liz. I started seeing her about 2 months before my cycle. Not only is she an exememly talented acupuncturist, she has very helpful and supportive suggestions to help get you through the fertility treatment process and into pregnancy. She came to the clinic for my embryo transfer and was very flexible about changing her schedule to be there. I am proud to say that our cycle was successful, we are now expecting twins at the end of June! I continue to see her on a regular basis as it really helps with all the ""bad"" pregnancy symptoms. I definitely give credit to Liz for having a large part in our successful cycle. I would highly recommend her to any woman/couple with fertiliy issues.

Wonderfully caring and supportive. Liz has been great in working with both my husband and I as we went through fertility treatment. After 3 unsuccessful IUIs, we started our first IVF cycle, and began seeing Liz, just prior to the IVF. We were able to successfully conceive and are now awaiting the arrival of our twins this summer. Liz has been very helpful and has provided great insight into issues that have come up along the way. We feel very lucky to have come this far and have to give credit to Liz for her services. I continue to see Liz during my pregnancy and look forward to the comfort and knowledge provided at each session.

I wanted to recommend both Liz and Lori with whom I had weekly appointments for about three months prior to going through my first round of IVF. I had been diagnosed with endometriosis and thus was having difficulty in becoming pregnant. I went through five cycles of IUI of which none took. I began seeing a new fertility specialist who recommended Blossom Clinic's services, specifically acupuncture and massage. Both Liz and Lori came very highly recommended. I found both women to be extremely caring, warm and professional. I successfully conceived and delivered a healthy baby boy as a result of my first IVF cycle and I attribute that success to the talent of my reproductive specialist and the highly qualified staff at Blossom Clinic.

I also wanted to add that i am now expecting my second child, whom I was able to conceive naturally. I believe that Liz and Lori have exceptional talents and I truly believe that their treatment helped alleviate my infertility challenges I faced for so many years. Thank you both for your terrific clinic and services.

About a year ago I decided to seek out an acupuncturist for various health reasons. After a bit of internet research I decided to try out Blossom. I had been to acupuncture twice before for a weird neck muscle thing. Both times the treatment was effective but the practitioners were a bit brisk and impersonal. So, I wasn't sure if that was rule of thumb for the profession or not. Then I met Jennie King at Blossom, my acupuncture super hero. Jennie is friendly, caring, attentive, and considers all aspects of her clients well being in a holistic manner, and she has a great sense of humor to boot. Not only have the treatments helped my various physical griefs, they have also provided me with some much needed respite from my day to day grind. Everyone else at the clinic are friendly and professional. I highly recommend Jennie King and have heard great things about Liz as well.

I had been told by my doctor that my WBC was on the low end of the range and it was impacting my ability to juggle home life and long hours at work. Every two-three weeks, I would get sick, which would hamper my ability to handle the demands of my life.

After many frustrating appointments with my doctor, I went to Blossom Clinic to see Rylen. In just two appointments, she was able to turn things around. Now, I can work long hours, play with my kids, and be active all without getting sick. And this is without ANY drugs. Unbelievable! Rylen has changed my life! Go see her now.

My husband and I have tried to get pregnant for 3 years. After several heart-breaking miscarriages and failed clomid and IUI attempts, I intuitively felt that something was missing from my experience. Along with my western fertility treatments, I started seeing the wonderful women at Blossom Clinic for acupuncture, nutrition, and especially Tiffany for her magical work in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy (aka Mayan massage). That's a mouthful, but I sincerely believe that this simple style of massage has helped me stay calm, relaxed and nurtured throughout my IVF treatments. Tiffany is not only an amazing masseuse, but cares about her craft and for the women she sees. Even my husband sees her (especially before our embryo transfer). I am now 7 months pregnant (YES!) and Tiffany has helped me keep my uterus high and centered...and has already developed a relationship with my baby! I firmly believe that my 'hybrid' approach to becoming pregnant has everything to do with the female support I received at Blossom Clinic and the Maya work. Please try it...it's deeply effective.

I had been trying for several months to get pregnant. After just 6 weeks of weekly accupuncture treatments with Liz it happened! During my pregnancy I have been seeing both Liz and Jennie monthly for pregnancy support and I feel great! They are thorough, supportive and professional. As a healthcare professional myself I appreciate their bedside manners and obvious thorough knowledge of women's health and fertility. I would urge any woman who is considering pregnancy to have a consult with one of them.

I LOVE Blossom Clinic. From the complementary consultation to the easy way in which Liz and Molly interface with their clients- this is the place to be. Liz is crazy talented and over the moon committed, going above and beyond daily. Molly is professional, efficient and friendly. The space is lovely and calming. And most of all, you'll get results. Liz really, really cares about her clients. If you are at all searching for stellar care in women's health, come here. You will not be disappointed. -posted by Liz Richards, owner of Blossom for a client on April 2, 2011

I was just starting the process of trying to have a baby in June and a friend recommended I try accupuncture. I contacted Liz and after an initial consulation I felt like working with Liz would be a good fit. And my instincts were right - Liz is a great resource, a wonderful sounding board and a great person to have in your corner. Months later, I'm now half way through my pregnancy and I still continue to see Liz for treatments. \r
\r
Liz also recommended that I visit with Rylen, the on sight nutritionist and I am very glad I did. Rylen broke down the ""rules"" in an easy to understand way, and gave me lots of options. At the core of it, I wasn't eating as a pregnant person should so I'm glad I met with her early on so I could make the changes I need to make sure the baby is getting all the things she needs.\r
\r
Overall, my experience has been wonderful. Trying to get pregnant is stressful but this was a place I felt taken care of and listened to while getting great advice.

I am so glad Blossom Clinic exists are a resource for women in this community.

I started seeing Rylen for amma therapy about 6 - 9 months ago, and she has been tremendously helpful in getting my health back on track. I have seen an assortment of healthcare practitioners over the last three years in an attempt to sort out my hormonal imbalances and persistent amenorrhea. Rylen, through a combination of amma therapy and herbal formuals, is the ONLY one that has succeeded in regulating my menstrual cyces. She is a talented healer, in addition to being refreshingly warm, kind, and supportive.

Although I have not received treatments from Liz, the interactions I've had with her have been extremely positive. In addition, Molly at the front desk is super friendly, accommodating, and helpful. I feel so supported in every way when I come in for treatments at Blossom. Highly recommended!

I can't say enough good things about Liz. I found her clinic through city search and immediately set up an appointment. The first visit was very detailed and she listened to all my concerns. Since that first visit, I've been seeing her for about four months and her sessions have helped me out tremendously. I saw her pre-pregnancy to help me get pregnant (and I attribute my getting pregnant to acupuncture as well as other medical factors) and I'm now seeing her to help me with nausea during my first trimester. Her sessions ward off nausea for three days, which has been a God send considering I'm throwing up morning and night. In addition to pregnancy related points, Liz has also helped me with digestion.
Her office is great, too. Molly sets up appointments easily and is quick to reschedule me when I have a conflict.
Perhaps most important is feeling taken care of and being listened to when I go for my appointment. Liz never pushes herbs and if she has recommendations, she suggests Whole Foods products. This is different from the naturopaths I've worked with, who always wanted me to buy products from them.
All in all, I'm so happy I found Liz and Blossom clinic. They've been a great source of support and comfort and I honestly think that Liz's sessions have helped me so much physically and emotionally.

I started seeing Liz last fall after trying to conceive for quite some time. We were referred to her by Dr. Hesla at Oregon Reproductive Medicine. We were just starting IVF and Dr. Hesla felt that Liz could help assist in our success. I have to say I was a bit skeptical at first, being a Nurse Im all about the medical field and never envisioned wanting to try acupuncture. After my first few treatments I had a different view on Chinese medicine. Liz was just what I needed; she has a warm welcoming personality. The office has a great atmosphere, the staff is friendly, I couldnt ask for a better combination. She has followed me through our pregnancy from the beginning of IVF to implantation to just recently for labor prep. I have been completely satisfied with her services and would recommend her to any of my close friends. She is excellent.

I began seeing Rylen two months ago on a recommendation from a friend who is an acupuncturist in SE Portland. She told me that the Blossom Clinic specialized in womens health and that sounded perfect for my symptoms. For the 6-8 months prior I had been suffering with nightly (I mean EVERY NIGHT) drenching cold sweats (and I'm only 38 y.o.) Literally so bad that I would have to wake up 3+ times a night and change my t-shirt, it was horrific. In addition, I was having awful breast tenderness (hot, swollen, and painful) for 2-3 weeks/month in addition to feeling generally sad and sensitive to emotional outburst. I initially saw my primary care MD who prescribed birth control pills - which I wasn't keen on, but hey, at that point I'd try just about anything! Well, 3 months into that regimen, nothing had changed. This was when I came to see Rylen.

Rylen determined that my symptoms were probably NOT hormonal (as my Doc had thought) but related to a low-functioning immune system (!). She began treating me weekly with AMMA therapy (a type of massage that I liken to intense pressure point work) and herbal therapy. At around the 4-week mark, the breast tenderness was gone, and at the 6-week mark, all my sweating went virtually away. This was after MONTHS of no respite. It was incredible. I literally feel like a different person.

Rylen also is a nutritional specialist and loves to talk about food and make great recommendations (and no, she doesn't make you stop eating MEAT, either!) I've tried several of her recipes with my family and all have been well received.

I can honestly say that I'd still be suffering from all of the above symptoms (plus sleeplessness, irritability, and weepy sadness) had it not been for this treatment. I'm on a every-three-week treatment schedule now for maintenance, and will most likely be ready to stop treatments soon (not that I want to... those AMMA sessions are SUPER AWESOME!). Rylen is truly a gift and I can't thank her enough for her loving care and attention to my health and wellness.

Pros: custom-tailored care, warm personality, not new-agey at all

Cons: out of office communication is mostly via email

Okay, I would like to start out by saying that I go to a lot of clinics in Portland for massage, acupuncture, and various other 'fix me up and make me feel good' activities.

I am impressed with the friendly scheduling, good location, and welcoming space that Blossom has created. This is a thriving practice that has mastered the balance between space and even better treatments.

I go to Rylen for Amma, my sister goes to Rylen for Amma, my friends go to Rylen for Amma. Why? Because I tell them to. Then they keep on going because it works and Rylen solves problems. She treats you using Traditional Chinese Medicine, but instead of needling, she massages the energy channels and then expertly applies pressure to various points to work with your specific condition.

She gives herbs and nutrition advice that work. Her balanced perspective actually makes you want to work towards change rather than run the other way (which is what I often do when I am told to work on this or that).

I'm not perfect, but I'm feeling a lot better and it is great to have found such a comprehensive resource in one woman. So no excuses, this treatment is worth every penny and not to be missed.

I have loved every appointment I have been to at Blossom Clinic. I am especially thankful to have discovered Rylen and her special talents as a nutritionist and Amma practitioner.

I have struggled with tremendous digestive problems for years and within a month am on the road to recovery. I can't remember a time my stomach wasn't bloated and painful, but these days it feels flat and pain-free.

I am also struggling to getting pregnant and although I've yet to conceive, I am learning a lot about how my body functions and what I can do to help it.

Rylen gives solid and realistic advice. She provides me with recipes, websites, and easy to follow plans for my healing. She is warm and kind, and has been an amazing cheerleader.

Rylen also provides a Chinese method of massage, a cross between massage and acupressure. It is both relaxing and energizing. And I have learned so much about my body through this practice.

I highly recommend this clinic if you are struggling to conceive, need nutritional counseling or are just looking for a soothing, calm place to get a massage, acupuncture and advice.

Rylan practices a different kind of healing...one that actually works and doesn't just covers up the symptoms! I have to admit I was a skeptic, but that doesn't matter my body responded. I have been sick with digestive issues for about 10 years and after about 6 weeks with Rylan things started to improve. After a just a few months I have more energy, more color in my face, I'm eating things I haven't been able to eat in years. I feel healthy again. Oh and let me tell you it's pretty freaking great to be able to eat bread again! Thank you Rylen!

Ive been seeing Liz Richards at Blossom Clinic since spring 2009. After a having some pregnancy losses at 37 years of age, I really wanted the assistance of Chinese Medicine to enhance my chances of a healthy, viable pregnancy. I tried a few other practitioners but they did not specialize in womens health and fertility. Luckily I found Blossom Clinic. Within a few months of starting care with Liz I was pregnant and made it through the first trimester without any difficulty. My second trimester was easy and I needed only the support of a great massage by Lori Reising, LMT at Blossom Clinic. With the onset of the discomforts of the third trimester I came back to Liz and have been seeing her since. We are now past our due date and working on enticing our baby out with the help of Liz and Lori. Im sure with their expertise we will end our fertility story with the beautiful, healthy homebirth that we desire.

Ive been seeing Liz Richards at Blossom Clinic since spring 2009. After a having some pregnancy losses at 37 years of age, I really wanted the assistance of Chinese Medicine to enhance my chances of a healthy, viable pregnancy. I tried a few other practitioners but they did not specialize in womens health and fertility. Luckily I found Blossom Clinic. Within a few months of starting care with Liz I was pregnant and made it through the first trimester without any difficulty. My second trimester was easy and I needed only the support of a great massage by Lori Reising, LMT at Blossom Clinic. With the onset of the discomforts of the third trimester I came back to Liz and have been seeing her since. We are now past our due date and working on enticing our baby out with the help of Liz and Lori. Im sure with their expertise we will end our fertility story with the beautiful, healthy homebirth that we desire.

I have been seeing Liz for acupuncture treatment for a year and have been going to Lori for massages for over six months. Both of them are amazingly thoughtful, caring, and total experts at what they do. I firmly believe that I would not be where I am right now, pregnant after an IVF cycle and with my sanity still intact, without their treatments and support.

Liz has worked with me to make sure that my body is in the best place to undergo fertility treatments, helped my body and soul recover after a miscarriage, and has treated me for a number of other issues along the way (including hives and insomnia). In all cases, she really listens to my needs and treats me as a whole person, recommending natural approaches and complementing her acupuncture treatments with supplements that really make a difference.

Lori's massages have been nothing short of amazing. They are unlike any massages I've ever had before. Lori really takes time to understand what's going on with me, and tailors the massage accordingly. It's beyond the typical ""spa massage"" experience -- Lori's massages, in addition to feeling fantastic and encouraging relaxation, are more like therapy. I've especially benefited from her craniosacral, myofacial, and abdominal work. You can feel the love flowing from her hands.

The IVF meditation that I listened to asked me to visualize the people who provided support to me during my cycle, and Liz and Lori were always front and center in that mental image.

I have had a digestive disorder for years that was becoming debilitating. I was exhausted and needed to do something. I spent 2 years going to specialists and had a number of blood tests, MRIs, CTScans, Colonoscopies, more blood, emergency room visits, more blood and a standing appt to test for Chron's disease. Luckily I found Rylen before I continued. My first session she listened to me and didn't make me think I was crazy and after my Ammatherapy I felt a change (I felt sick and dizzy) but I felt change and that night my sleep was better and the next morning my energy was better. The first 2 weeks, my energy... it was back and the digestive issues I had, had improved by a 1000%. I mean 1000. I was hungry again. I have learned so much about my health and have received such awesome treatment people could recognize it in my eyes, my hair, my skin tone, my energy. Do yourself a favor if you are on the fence go once, you will be giving yourself the gift of health and you will feel it.

Blossom clinic is a truly magical place! I have been seeing Rylen due to sleep issues from my colicky baby. Rylen really gets the whole story and works with you to create a plan. Her treatments are AMAZING and have helped my insomnia tremendously. She has played such a key role in my healing during the most difficult transition in my life. Not sure where I would be without her and the gals at Blossom clinic.

I went to see Liz after a miscarriage from a Clomid pregnancy, and four subsequent failed IUI/injectables cycles. We were ""diagnosed"" with unexplained infertility. The stress of the medical fertility route was too much, and we had decided to bail out on it and just focus on improving our health. If it happened, it happened, and if it didn't, oh well.

I saw Liz weekly for treatments and herbs. After three months of treatments, 2 days after my 40th birthday, we conceived our son. He's now a healthy and happy 2.5 month old! The pregnancy was smooth, and I continued seeing Liz throughout. It definitely helped with the aches and pains I was feeling.

I believe that two things helped us get pregnant: one is that we gave up trying to control the process with the medicines and constant monitoring and appointments. When we said the words ""if it happens, it happens"", my body could finally relax.

The second thing was the treatment/herb combo from Liz. The combination of music/eye pillow/aromatherapy with the acupuncture and herbs leaves you feeling relaxed, cared for, and supported. Like another poster, I had been told all the terrible statistics about getting pregnant at ""advanced maternal age"" and Liz didn't seem to blink twice about it.

Thanks Liz!

I came to Liz with a pretty negative attitude. After one failed round of IVF and one that ended in miscarriage I thought I'd never get pregnant. For over 4 years we went through treatments at a fertility clinic, then we tried a new clinic where the doctor reccomended acupuncture. I saw Liz a few months prior to my 3rd IVF, I was still devastated from my miscarriage but she helped me see that I need to have hope. Her sessions left me relaxed and I tried to keep that positive energy going. She reccomended herbs for me to take which I believe really got my body ready for pregnancy. She came with me to the embryo transfer and made sure I was comfortable there and did acupuncture at the clinic. I saw her a week later and kept taking the herbs and I finally got that positive pregnancy test! She was always available to answer my questions and put my overactive worrying mind at ease. Liz was a vital piece of the puzzle to helping me get pregnant. She is positive but also very realistic and really takes the time to listen to whatever is on your mind. Also the ambiance she created at Blossom is very comfortable, clean, & relaxing. Thanks Liz

I saw Liz & Rylen at Blossom Clinic for a cleanse last summer. At the time, I had been getting sick too often, felt exhausted and depleted. I needed to hit the ""restart"" button, but was wary of a cleanse that would be difficult and restrictive.... but this cleanse was very supportive, nourishing, dare I say delicious? and VERY EFFECTIVE.
Liz & Rylen developed a personalized plan that involved a cleansing diet, acupuncture, bodywork and frequent check-ins.
It helped me shift eating habits and behaviors that have made a permanent difference in my energy level and my overall health.
Result: totally refreshed, nourished, rested, cleansed! It's like my immune system is permanently revved up. Highly recommended.

I always knew I wanted to have children. When I was a child myself I loved to care for younger kids and I just always imagined myself with a family. In January 2005 I became pregnant and my husband and I were thrilled. We read all the books and did all the things we were supposed to do. When I went in for an ultrasound to check a possible complication with my cervix the radiologist coldly told me something was wrong and gave me the number of a genetic counselor to call. At 12 weeks we learned our baby was not going to make it. At 14 weeks we lost her. I had a D & C (dilation and curettage) procedure. We waited the recommended amount of time to start trying again. We knew we wanted to have a baby. Every month I got my period I became more discouraged and disappointed. Our babys due date came and passed and still I was not pregnant. Making it through that due date was so hard. I was tracking my ovulation with ovulation sticks and with my morning temperature. I was charting everything. I had started seeing an MD because it seemed I was ovulating around the last day of my period at times and my cycle was completely unpredictable. One month I had a 40 day cycle, the next month a 27 day cycle. I had read so much about acupuncture and I started to talk about it with my husband. He searched the internet for someone in Oregon who had experience with families trying to conceive. Thank our lucky stars he found Liz.

Liz immediately created a routine that worked along with my medical treatments (progesterone) to regulate my cycle again and she also helped me change my diet and, best of all, relax! I loved the appointments. I felt so confident in Lizs knowledge and skill that I could just go and rest and calm my body and mind. I started weekly treatments in early December and we were thrilled to learn I was pregnant again in February!

In my final trimester of that healthy pregnancy our baby was transverse breech and happy to be that way. I didnt want to have the physical manipulation to move her and I hoped to avoid a C-section. Liz helped us again with moxa treatments. I actually saw baby turn that first night! She stayed head down and I had a normal delivery.
I found a path that worked for me through acupuncture and self-hypnosis/ deep relaxation techniques. I think the focus on a healthy mind and body contributed to the happy and calm spirits both of my kids have now! Best wishes!

I started trying to conceive my second child when I was 42. I didnt seek medical intervention until I was 44. By this time, my FSH was 10. It fell to 6 when I took the fertility medicine Clomid. The doctors I consulted were willing to work with me, but they were careful not to raise my expectations. (I think I surprised them when I called to schedule a prenatal appointment!)

After two and a half months with no success on Clomid, I started wondering about other ways to boost my fertility. I didnt have any experience with acupuncture, but I was intrigued by what I learned from the Blossom website. And when I called to schedule an initial consultation with Liz, she recommended two books: Fertility Wisdom by Angela C. Wu and the The Infertility Cure by Randine A. Lewis. Both of these books include truly inspirational examples of women my age (and older) who relied on Chinese Medicine to achieve successful, healthy pregnancies.

The advice I have to someone trying to conceive who is thinking of seeing Liz: Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Western medicine tends to focus on statistics. Here is an example of one statistic I encountered when I was thinking about a second child: A forty year old woman has a less than 10% chance of having a successful pregnancy using her own eggs. My doctors also warned me about my elevated risk of miscarriage and chromosomal abnormalities. By contrast, Liz never gave me the sense that my efforts to conceive and carry a healthy baby were futile. She counseled me to make some changes in my diet, try herbal supplements, and come in for regular acupuncture sessions. Less than two months after my first appointment with Liz, I was pregnant. I am now solidly into my second trimester and expecting a healthy baby boy in January.

I sought Liz's expertise after being diagnosed with an extremely elevated FSH at 38. My fertility doctor told me my chances of conceiving with my own eggs was less than 5%. I was shocked by this diagnosis as I had conceived a healthy baby girl just 1.5 years prior. Before looking to adoption or using donor eggs, I decided I wanted to give acupuncture and herbs a try. To my surprise, after seeing Liz for just 3 months, I became pregnant!! I'm now 5 months pregnant with another healthy baby girl. I found Liz to be incredibly intuitive, professional, body-wise and soothing. Please go see her if you're at all inclined- you won't be disappointed!

I've seen Liz off and on over the years for general relaxation, allergies, insomnia, etc. I never expected infertility to befall me, but when it did I was thrilled to see Liz on my RE's list of recommended acupuncture practitioners. I called for an appointment right away and saw her at least once a week before and during my IVF cycle. Those weekly visits gave me a chance to clear my head and refocus in the middle of a stressful and emotional process. Liz helped to make our transfer day a relaxing, positive, spiritual experience and I wouldn't have wanted to do it without her. I just received a positive result on beta #1 and I don't know that we would have had the same result without her. I look forward to peaceful hours with Liz throughout my pregnancy.

I sought out Liz after I was diagnosed with high FSH and told I would very likely never conceive another child. I was told I had a 1% chance of conceiving naturally. After weighing our options, we decided to forgo the medical route, pursue natural alternatives and pray for a miracle. Liz put me on a weekly treatment plan that included acupuncture and herbs. She also counseled me on diet and lifestyle changes to boost nutrition and create a more ?nurturing? environment for conception and also recommended books I should read for additional insight. Along the way, I radically changed my diet and quit a demanding job. Ten months after first contacting Liz, our prayers were answered when I conceived 100% naturally. I?m now in my 4th month. Hope is an essential ingredient, and Liz's unfailing support always made me feel that this pregnancy was possible.

I credit Liz for my long-awaited pregnancy. I went to her while taking a break from IUI/Chlomid, and got pregnant that cycle! She was very easy-going, understanding, and capable. She knows what she's doing and she's very good at it. I would recommend her to highly. I now have a lovely 7.5 month old boy.

Liz was absolutely lovely to work with during our recent IVF cycle. She provided acupuncture treatments to me a number of times during the cycle, which was successful.

I went to Liz to quit smoking. After 6 prior failed attempts at quitting with other methods, I finally found acupuncture. Liz has such a peaceful and caring manner she was so easy to talk to and helped me undersand 'eastern medicine'. I have not smoked in over 4 years and feel great. After her smoking cessation program she helped me with running pain and was a great spiritual help to me in other endeavors. I am so greatful for her help and reccomend her highly to all my friends that ask about acupuncture.

After seeing two different acupuncturists on my path to having a baby, I was frustrated, offended (!) and discouraged. A friend recommended Liz Richards to me and I knew my fertility specialist endorsed her too, so I made my first appointment in August '06. Our weekly sessions were not only cathartic, but I knew she cared about my husband and I and truly wanted the same outcome as we did. Liz helped me recover from surgery, improve my bloodflow (I have the scientific proof!) and by May '07 we found out we were pregnant with our first little one after our second round of IVF. As we await the pending arrival of our child, I can't help but believe that Liz's expertise, compassion and skill as an acupuncturist helped us achieve our goal and get to this day which we, at times, thought would never come. Whether you're just starting out or have been on the IF journey for some time, Liz will be a wonderful resource to you.

Liz is phenomenal: She helped me with my struggle with infertility (I know have boy-girl twins!), and I recommend her to every woman I meet who is having trouble conceiving a baby. Liz is a welcome mix of professional and personable. Liz is incredibly intuitive, sensitive, and caring: It was so wonderful to have a health care provider who had time to really listen to me during the whole crazy quest to have a baby (or two). As I said, she has a high level of professionalism, yet I always knew she cared about me. She thoroughly explained techniques to me, to calm my fears about needles, and she is always up on the latest research in fertility treatments. Liz even came to the fertility clinic to give me treatments before and after the embryo transfer. I truly believe Liz is a big reason our IVF cycle was so successful.

Liz is a wonderful partner to have on the path to fertility success.

I consider her a very important part of the journey I have been on and recommend her services without reservation.

I was referred to Liz by my fertility clinic after one of my test results was less than favorable. I'd not had a successful pregnancy in 10 years. She was my fist experience with 'Alternative Medicine' and I tend to be a little on the sceptical side of things. \r
\r
I found Liz to be thorough in my treatments, empathetic to my infertility struggles, and excellent at explaining the philosophy behind her treatment plan. She offered full disclosure on her success rates so that I had all of the information I needed to decide whether or not to continue in the treatment protocol. \r
\r
Fast forward one year later and I have healthy, happy five month old twins! I would highly recommend Liz and her practice. If I had any time, I would return for the relaxation I enjoyed with her prebabies! I am grateful to her for help during such a tough time in my life.

I was referred to Liz by my fertility doctor when we were having trouble convieving a child. I saw her for 5 weeks prior to my IVF procedure and I beleive it's the reason we got pregnant. I was not a believer in eastern medicine before I did accupuncture with Liz, but after our time together I can say it's a miracle! and it works! Please see Liz if you are having trouble getting pregnant... she is the best in Portland!

Liz has a wonderful way with people. She has a talent at looking at the whole person, well beyond anything that might be evident on the surface. I appeciate her willingness to take my life-style, values and experiences into account as she is treating me. Actually I feel like she does more than ""treat"" me, she supports me. Many of the concerns that bring individuals into Liz's office are life altering and she knows that it is a path we are constently not just for the hour or so we are in her office. I have and would continue to encourage (highly) others to seek out her support.

I went to visit Liz Richards with pain in my shoulder and back. I had visited numerous chiropractors and massage therapists and nobody was able to help me long term. Liz did a comprehensive exam and found that the my pain was actually trapped in another place. After a few visits that incorporated massage, muscle stimulation, and acupuncture I was feeling great and my pain did not return!
