Move better, feel better and do more of the things you love. Whether your goals are athletic, artistic or wellness, I will tailor a treatment plan to meet your needs.

Dr. Kyle Green, PT, DPT, CSCS, ASTYM

Doctor of Physical Therapy and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

Dr. Kyle Green was first discovered roaming the mountainous islands of SW Alaska. Living amongst the sea otters and grizzly bears he developed a unique style to natural healing through breath work and controlled body movements. He also accounts his strong postural development program from years of trekking barefoot through the tundra and riverbeds, where he learned the importance of stability in the mind and body.
Kyle was captured at the age of 13 and was forced to participate and explore many forms of organized sports. His heart was too large to be a competitive athlete, and his eagerness for understanding the human body system consumed his reality. He was later shipped to Oregon State University where he expanded his knowledge of Exercise and Sports Science in preparation for a life in Physical Therapy. He was than recruited by Western University of Health Sciences where he received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2012. Understanding his boundaries of the harshness of Alaska and the mildness of southern California, he established himself in Oregon.
Kyle understands you must be open and accepting of all practices and ideas. He also believes the moment you stop learning is when you start dying. After continually expanding his knowledge in the USA for another 6+ years, in 2018 he decided to travel the world, learning other medicines, healing practices and cultures. He returns to Portland with knowledge from over 18 countries and 5 continents.
Kyle has a love for all forms of sports and adventure. He is currently focused on meditation, yoga, rock climbing and calisthenics.
“We are entering an era of self-healing. Let me guide and support you on the proper path to holistic healing and limitless body function.”

She has been fascinated with human movement since she was young; growing up playing field hockey and lacrosse in school, rehabbing serious injuries, studying with a vocal coach who used her martial arts background to teach breathing technique (feel free to ask her about that one).

Olivia’s mission is to help restore free movement, manage pain, and eliminate restrictions in the body.

Using the movement of Thai massage DJ can uncover many issues; even if they’ve been problematic for years, even if the exact cause of your pain is unknown. Thai massage is sometimes known as “yoga for lazy people”, but DJ’s clients aren’t lazy; they are elite runners, Boston qualifiers, triathletes of all stripes, Kona qualifiers, Western States finishers, endurance mountain bike racers, and the list goes on. His clients are all trying to do more, coming back from an injury or adopting an active lifestyle. He uses active and passive stretching to achieve results, all based on individual needs.

Danielle Melanson, LAc

Licensed Acupuncturist

My first priority as a health care provider is to take the proper time to listen and establish a caring relationships with every patient. I believe acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have the ability to heal on many different levels, and I know the journey to health is unique for each of my patients. It is my wish that through education, open heartedness and a supportive environment, every patient will find their own level of optimal health.

Treatment includes an initial consultation where I will complete a detailed intake in order to learn more about your symptoms and how they may be interrelated. The smallest detail can provide insight into the root cause of your pain condition and can be diagnostic in TCM. The visit will include acupuncture in conjunction with other traditional modalities including, Chinese herbs, Cupping, Gua-Sha, Nutritional supplements and Diet and lifestyle modifications.  Physical health is inseparable from emotional health and spiritual well-being.  The holistic aspect of Chinese Medicine is that it can treat the underlying imbalances, which cause disease.

I received my master’s degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon.  I am a member of the American Association of Oriental Medicine (AAOM) and board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. (NCCAOM).

I look forward to meeting you soon, for more info about me please visit my website.
