Ellisia Grove, L.Ac.

Ellie is a nationally certified acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist, licensed in Oregon and Colorado. Attracted to the healing arts from a young age, she has pursued a life-long interest in holistic health and wellness. Influenced by massage therapists, energy workers, herbalists and doctors, it was an acupuncturist who ultimately encouraged her direction. From the outset, she has worked in a variety of professional settings, serving innumerable individuals presenting with manifold health concerns.

Her clinical approach is researched, intuitive, and thorough. In treatment, she remains open and curious, recognizing the countless layers of experience that we each carry. She offers a container for addressing physical health, but also invites introspection during treatment. The pace of the world will push and throttle ahead, which creates even greater necessity for stillness. As a guide and fellow companion in the practice, she believes that we must nurture a core of compassion to heal personal and collective suffering. Easier said than done! We practice. As a highly sensitive and empathic provider, Ellie is committed to encouraging positive change in the lives of her patients – she does so through kindness, acceptance, spaciousness, and sometimes a nerdy joke.

When she isn’t feeling your pulses, Ellie is often outside, spending time with friends, practicing yoga, cooking, knitting, reading, painting or just plain old loafing.
