I have been seeing Arnaud for about 3 years now. I have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and was taking a host of pharmaceuticals that were causing many side effects including depression, severe heartburn and gastrointestinal problems. It got to the point where I could not go to work or function on a day to day basis. I was at my wit's end when I found Arnaud. He has given me my life back. Arnaud is a professional who is very knowledgeable about acupuncture and Chinese herbs. He is a dedicated and caring person and I have complete trust in him to help me with all my health issues.

I have been going to Kumiko for 2 or 3 years now for various symptoms. Every time I meet with her, she is very patient and thorough in her questions. She always makes sure I am okay with anything she prescribes. If I have any concerns, I feel comfortable asking her about them. I am so impressed with the chinese herbs she has prescribed me, and the acupuncture always leaves me feeling calm with a sense of relief from the problem areas.

There's no other place I would rather have needle me and give me herbs!

Kumiko is both pleasant and professional, a combination I appreciate. She listens carefully, asks questions seriously, knows her business.

I initially saw her for shoulder problems associated with a fractured arm and diagnosed IBS with abdominal discomfort. Her diagnostic ability, plus herbs and acupuncture took care of both issues.
Along the way, she helped me with some sleep issues and leg pain from varicose veins. This woman is more than a triple threat!

Pros: Excellent results

I went to Kumiko for chronic knee, hip, and back pain. When I first went into her office I had a noticeable limp on the left side, and after only 3 visits the pain was mostly gone and I am walking normally now. Also, chronic back pain prevented me from practicing sitting meditation for much longer than 30 minutes at a time, now I can sit comfortably for long stretches with zero spinal discomfort. I give Kumiko the highest referral and rating - it is a blessing to meet a healer of such magnitude in this life. I am now living 'pain free!' I look forward to being needled again:)

Pros: Awesome Accupuncture!

For three years, western medicine gave me little relief from persistent pain from shingles. I turned to Kumiko Shirai. Within three months of the Chinese herbs she prescribed, the daily pain was gone, and so were my many years of chronic bad colds.

A year later, I'm grateful for my restored immune system and good health. I thank Kumiko for her expertise in healing skills. She took comprehensive information intakes at each visit, and so I thank her also for her ability to listen carefully and provide treatments as a means of her understanding.

Pros: very caring, great herbalist

I had issues with energy and Arnaud impoved my energy. He was able to get me off Thyroid medication and I felt better when I got off of it than I did being on it. Arnaud provides the most professional service in the area.

Pros: Top Herbalist and Strong Needle work.

Arnaud has helped me a lot thus far in helping to bring my body back into balance, and I would highly recommend his services to anyone. I have several pathologies that have been many years in the making, and with each formula I get from Arnaud the functioning of my body feels better than it did before taking the herbs. Whether we are working on chronic conditions or knocking out an acute seasonal illness, I always get a great deal of relief and I'm very grateful for all of his help. He is also a great person to see as a student, as his knowledge of herbs and human physiology and pathology are better than most, and he is very clear, thorough and enthusiastic in his teachings.

I strongly believe Arnaud's sessions immensely improved my overall health. I' ve had major digestive issues, which impaired my daily routine and functioning. Once I started attending Arnaud's treatments, I immediately noticed minor improvements, which greatly increased as I progressed with my therapy.
I've been seeing Arnaud regulary for about 2 yrs and in the course of this time he successfully addressed various health issues to include:
> stress reduction and pain relief associated with physical therapy for recovery from a broken leg and a lower back injury.
> helped me shorten my recovery time after an appendectomy and worked on getting my digestion back on track.
>also improved my circulation, which was associated with a series of health issues.
>successfully treated my husband's sciatica and back pain.
I have gained a full confidence in his hollistic approach to healing, and trust his diagnoses and therapeutic judgement. Arnaud appears to be completly in tune with my health concerns and well-being.

Pros: Helped with stress, digestion, injury recovery

Very simply stated Arnaud has given me back my life. His skilled knowledge of Chinese herbal medicine has significantly modified the damage done to my intestinal tract which resulted from "collateral damage" from cancer radiation. My oncologist and gastroenterologist offered me no help - I would have to live with the sudden episodes of gastric pain that took me to the ER three times. Arnaud is very serious about his work and seems dedicated to getting to the root of a problem and healing the whole body rather than treating symptoms. I am very pleased with the results.

I have had the luck of being treated by AAoO regarding a few topics which I wanted to have addressed within the last year. I am absolutely stoked.
I was good again within a blink of an eye. And enjoyed every visit. In my opinion the best Address in Portland. Major Insurance companies should add AAoO into their Networks - in my opinion !

The other thing which I enjoy so much is the life attitiude one gets to understand visiting AAoO. It is not only about curing problems, it is as well about promoting healty living. Which means for me, going there even if I am totally fine, but seek advise how to do something really good for me & my body.

See you soon AAoO

Pros: Professionality, Background, Attitude & excellent Mentorship

Cons: none

We have worked with Arnaud for several years for a variety of conditions: seasonal allergies, migraines and back pain. Perhaps the best thing about Arnaud's practice is that he takes time to get to the root causes of the issue. He asks a few questions, then he actually listens; he is also incredibly perceptive.

I had an amazing result with a shoulder injury that my MD had explained was just something I would have to live with. I happened to mention it to Arnaud when I was in for an allergy treatment, and it turned out Arnaud had studied shoulder injuries during his training in China. He listened to my explanation, located the specific area of pain immediately, and performed a short treatment that literally worked within minutes. I had never experienced anything like it.

Of course not everything is a simple fix, but Arnaud is always very straightforward about what to expect, and he always encourages you to participate in your own care in between appointments with gentle suggestions about activities and nutrition that are helpful in aiding recovery.

Arnaud is a great acupuncturist and herbalist. I've gotten great results from him for issues that could not be resolved by western medicine. People always ask me how I know if the acupuncture and herbs are working, so here's an example....

I've had no sensation (total numbness) in my foot for the past 6 years, a result of nerve damage during surgical reconstruction of my ankle after a really bad accident. I've seen 7 orthopaedic surgeons and ankle specialists, who have all told me that the nerve damage was permanent, and nothing could be done. Every doctor I've seen has told me that if the feeling didn't come back within 6 months, the nerve damage was permanent. Six *years* later, I resigned myself to never having any feeling in my foot again.

After a few months of treatment from Arnaud I was SHOCKED to find the sensation in my foot coming back. I had gotten so used to my foot being totally numb that I kept thinking I had a pebble in my shoe! I've literally traveled across the entire country seeing the top ankle specialists, orthopaedists, and neurologists, and none of them could ever help me.

The other great thing about Arnaud is that he takes the first 10 minutes of every appointment to asses and re-asses how you are doing. He does a comprehensive diagnosis during your first visit, but always does a re-assessment with each visit to see how you are progressing. Totally unlike going to the regular doctor, when they see you once for 5 seconds, and then they ask perfunctory questions to see if anything else is wrong, but don't bother doing anything else. I have been really impressed that a few times Arnaud could tell I had recently had a cold, even when I hadn't seen him for a few weeks and didn't tell him.

Pros: careful diagnosis, lots of attention

Cons: Not covered by my insurance as well as traditional physician

I really enjoyed my treatments with Arnaud at Acupuncture Associates of Oregon and would recommend to anyone for whatever symptoms you are facing. He takes great care in getting a comprehensive understanding of what is going on in your body, and does not diagnosis or treat symptoms disconnected from your whole self. I found great relief from multiple problems, including recovery from surgery. My body has been in much better balance since seeing him and my emotions more regulated.

I have been working with Arnaud for a few months now, and have so much confidence in his abilities and the progress I have made since seeing him.

Not only have his formulas and treatments been invaluable, but I find that I better understand the process of my healing, as he is wonderful in walking one through the treatments and areas that are being worked on.

I feel so grateful for being steered his way!
