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 acupuncture, face reading, neuro-acupuncture, clinical nutrition, lifestyle modification counseling, nutritive/herbal supplementation, holistic spiritual coaching, trauma release techniques, and Eastern and Western astrology 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, family, and friends. 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 shamanic practices as a way to facilitate these healing processes for herself and 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, cranialsacral therapy, 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 (acupuncture physician) to practice Chinese medicine, nationally board certified (NCCAOM) Diplomat of Oriental Medicine (Acupuncture & Herbalist combined), Certified Master Face Reader, Certified Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture Practitioner, Astrologer, Craniosacral Therapist, Aromatherapy Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher, Ordained Minister 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 herbal medicine clinic in West Salem, OR and bring her love of Chinese medicine, Face Reading, craniosacral therapy, aromatherapy, and astrology to the Salem, OR community.
