Megan Rose, L.A.c

Megan is a licensed acupuncturist who specializes in treating mental and emotional health, chronic conditions and hormonal imbalances, including Hashimotos Thyroiditis. Chronic pain, exhaustion, digestive disorders and other health problems increase stress and can therefore create declining health, which can feel overwhelming and disheartening. People may lose the sense that something better is possible. Megan utilizes five-element and classical style acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy, herbal formulas, diet, and nutritional supplements to break this cycle and shift body and mind into healthier patterns. She knows that every individual is different and listens to their whole story.
As a mother herself, Megan is aware of how challenging and depleting the post-partum period can be. Chinese medicine is wonderful at addressing this unique transition in a woman’s life, and can help to dissolve depression and anxiety, increase milk supply and make a woman feel centered again.
Megan graduated from the National College of Natural Medicine in 2011 and is licensed by the Oregon Medical Board. She accepts United Healthcare, Blue Cross/Blue Sheild, Cigna, Providence, Lifewise, Moda, Optum, and Pacific Source Insurances, as well as offering a time of service discount.

Megan is so great! She is helping me with a combination of things from general wellness (physical and emotional) to fertility support. I always feel really grounded after my acupuncture sessions. Big problems seem smaller, colds go away faster and my body generally feels more resilient. 
She is a great listener, incredibly responsive and works super hard to make sure I'm seeing results from our sessions. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Dr. Kacy Borba Spann, ND, L.A.c

Dr. Kacy L Borba Spann hails from a big family in a small cow-town on the central coast of California. She studied Community Healthcare at UC Santa Cruz, a major she designed, focusing on social inequities in healthcare and biomedical sciences. A few years later she found herself in Portland, OR for graduate school at the National College of Natural Medicine where she spent time growing, changing, learning, healing and connecting with Naturopathic and Chinese medicine. She thinks that being bipedal is the coolest and likes to be in motion, whether walking, skateboarding, dancing, or hula hooping. Dr. Kacy loves to be nature with her bare feet on the earth near bodies of moving water. When she is with the ocean tides on a full moon she feels the most connected to our creator. She believes there’s no better dessert than a chocolate chip cookie. She strives to find what is to love in each soul she meets! Dr. Kacy enjoys and is able to connect with a variety of folks. She prefers her role as practitioner to be a partnership and realizes healing is a journey with many paths. She is creative, flexible and grounded in her approach to care using many modalities, including: classical acupuncture, non-insertive Japanese acupuncture for pediatric patients, spinal manipulations, fire cupping, bleeding cupping, scar therapy, prolotherapy, bodywork (including cranio-sacral, myofascial release, shiatsu and channel work), post-surgical recovery, and naso-specifics. She uses basic and specialty lab work and imaging to aid in diagnosis and treatment efficacy. Dr. Kacy believes touch is incredibly important to healing and is a hands-on doctor with thorough physical exams and treatment modalities as well as a hug at the end of each visit (if wanted of course). She is constantly re-iterating to her patients that "it's your body, your choice" and will walk your path towards betterment at your pace and without judgement, opting for open honesty over dogmatic doctoring. Many of her patients have admitted that she is the first doctor they actually look forward to seeing!

We are here to create support around healing from birth trauma. We are here so that you know you are not alone. We are here because we have experienced traumatic births and the residual impact it can have on the postpartum experience as well as any and all other aspects of life. In each Seasonal Workshop will have a different theme utilizing  art, movement, writing, meditation, sound healing and community.

Kailashi Zigler, LAc.

Kailashi is an acupuncturist, an OCOM graduate, and is certified by the NCCAOM in Acupuncture, Oriental Medicine, and Chinese Herbology. She came to love this medicine through her grandfather, an orthopedic surgeon who gave up his surgical practice to begin offering acupuncture to his patients in Indiana in 1986. His drive and passion has been a beacon for Kailashi ever since she decided to follow his footsteps and become a practitioner of this beautiful medicine. She has also felt the breadth of Chinese medicine through her own searches for health. Having been diagnosed with an ulcer at the age of 19 and struggling with PPIs and antibiotics, she finally found relief in acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

Sessions with Kailashi can include acupuncture, herbs, tui na massage, cupping, gua sha, and mayan abdominal massage. She strives to offer unique treatments meeting patients where they are at. While offering a general practice open to all people in all conditions, Kailashi believes that through improving sleep, digestion, and gynecological health, while also easing any symptoms of pain, the body can be freed up to heal itself. Patients will also be given self-care practices to keep the momentum of change going between appointments and to support the maintenance phase.

When not practicing at Portland Family Health, she teaches in OCOM’s herbal medicinary and TA classes in tui na and acupuncture point location. She loves staying connected to the learning environment and the energy of exploration within the field of Chinese Medicine. She also has a daily seated practice and enjoys spending time with her community. In her remaining free time, she can be found at the Sandy River Delta throwing sticks for a lovable labradoodle named Wanda, at the climbing gym, and exploring all that Portland has to offer.
