Tammy Anderson, MS, L.A.c., believes empowering patients to take charge of their physical, emotional, and spiritual health is of utmost importance for optimal healing to be achieved. An integrated multidimensional treatment approach facilitates the trans-formative process. Chinese medicine is combined with face reading, neuro-acupuncture, Eastern and Western Astrology, clinical nutrition, lifestyle modification counseling, and nutritive/herbal supplementation as a means of evoking the body to restore to its natural flow.

Tammy's interest in holistic medicine began over 20 years ago learning natural, herbal and aromatherapy remedies for herself and family. While serving eight years on active duty in the U.S. Army, her journey into healing and spiritual growth began, primarily as a means of healing herself from the many traumas she endured. She became an ordained minister, a certified Reiki Master Teacher, and began to study shamanism as a way to facilitate these healing processes for others. Following her honorable discharge in 2001, she realized the calling into holistic medicine as a full-time career using her natural healing abilities. She studied various modalities in bodywork, cranial-sacral, and energetic therapies before embarking on the path of learning the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.

Tammy has recently contributed to and helped edit the textbook Treating Emotional Trauma with Chinese Medicine.

Tammy is licensed in Oregon and Florida to practice Chinese medicine, nationally board certified (NCCAOM) Diplomat of Oriental Medicine, Ordained Minister, Certified Master Face Reader, Certified Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture Practitioner, Aromatherapy Practitioner, Astrologer, Reiki Master Teacher, and U.S. Army Veteran. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences and a Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine from Acupuncture and Massage College, Miami, FL.

Tammy is very excited to open the first acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinic in West Salem, OR and bring her love of Chinese medicine, aromatherapy, and astrology to the Salem, OR community.
