Tracy possesses a deep knowledge of East Asian Medicine and refined gentle hand skills that make treatment both comfortable and effective. She has solved many of my complicated health concerns over the past few years and I trust her immensely. Tracy is a masterful practitioner in Portland and the field at large.

SB, Patient

As someone who “hates needles,” I have ironically relied on Tracy as a PCP for the last four years. She’s helped me with health issues ranging from tachycardia to irregular periods, and muscle/joint pain to eczema. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, and has provided excellent referrals as necessary. You won’t find a better acupuncturist.

JJ, patient

My body and I completely trust her and can relax under her care.

RI, patient

Tracy Thorne knows what she is doing! I came to her almost two years ago at rock bottom. My physical and emotional health were poor. Tracy welcomed me with empathy curiosity and something other western practitioners had not offered, hope and guidance for my wellness recovery. With a lot of work and collaboration, I am back on track. Tracy is warm, patient, kind and highly skilled. Her background in a variety of modalities provides a holistic and well-informed approach to wellness. She is great at explaining why she is doing or recommending different things so I always feel involved and educated about my health and how to manage it. I am so grateful I found her and had her walk alongside me on my wellness recovery.

Tracy has been a huge help in getting/keeping my athletes on the floor for competition!

Amy Carol, Athletic Trainer University of Portland

Tracy is always eager to help, and is highly accomplished in her profession. She is remarkably attuned to how the body works, and does an extraordinary job of helping me maintain less muscle tension and stress, creating overall comfort. I would recommend Tracy to anyone looking for an effective, detail-oriented acupuncturist.

Rubi Sullivan, patient

Tracy was one of the best teachers I had in acupuncture school, and possibly ever. She is passionate and deeply knowledgeable about Japanese acupuncture and managed to give us more practical tools to help patients in 1 quarter than in many of the year-long courses.

CS, OCOM Student

Tracy is a wonderful practitioner, caring, patient, thoroughly knowledgeable, and truly compassionate. With her acupuncture and herbs she helped resolve some stubborn health issues and also gave me practical tools to help myself. Highly recommended.

CS, patient

As someone who’s had experience with acupuncture over the years, due to chronic health issues, I consider Tracy Thorne one of Portland’s most skilled practitioners. She applies gentle Japanese-style acupuncture and moxibustion expertly and with great care. As a healthcare communications professional, I especially appreciate Tracy’s articulate explanations for her treatment approach. She is also quite knowledgeable about integrative medicine options, including exercise and nutrition, and when additional resources or medical approaches might be of benefit. Most important, Tracy is a kind and compassionate presence in the treatment room. I consider Tracy Thorne Wellness gentle, intelligent medicine at its finest.

Mark Harris, medical journalist, patient

What I am most thankful for in your healthcare is for the consultations you offered that empowered me to help my own healing process through recommended exercises, nutrition and attentiveness on care. Also, your therapeutic treatments were significant in getting me ready for bilateral knee replacement and in aiding recovery from painful residuals of surgery in conjunction with PT. I am so impressed with your knowledge of the human organism and you engender a comforting trust and relaxation in treatment. I also respect your ability to listen closely and ask the pertinent questions for healthy outcomes.In a short summation, I profited immensely from your medical advice and have been amazed at the ways you can dispense with chronic conditions resulting from injuries and age-related symptoms. So I AM THANKFUL!

Mike B, patient

I have worked with Tracy for over 6 years on and off for post-car accident treatment and autoimmune support. I can't say enough about her professionalism, wisdom, compassion and intuition which has helped me and many of my loved ones improve our symptoms and relieve pain. Tracy's integrity and deep knowledge make her a powerful practitioner!

Megan Barnett, patient

Tracy has helped me immeasurably. She's smart, gentle, professional and made a huge impact in my health. She helped me with peri-menopause symptoms and made them practically disappear, but also provided me with much needed relief from back, neck, and knee problems. She's a gem and has made such a difference in my life. She really knows her stuff and I felt confident in her treatments because I knew I was in the hands of a compassionate and extremely knowledgeably and experienced practitioner.

KG, patient

I studied Shang Han Lun and Jin Gui Yao Lue Fukushin with Tracy Thorne. She is the most knowledgeable and clear teacher I’ve come across for this sometimes enigmatic branch of diagnosis. A finding on a patient’s abdomen can mean one thing in one context and another in a different context. There is rarely a this means that finding. This can make Fukushin difficult to learn and especially difficult to teach. Tracy is very systematic in her approach, making the difficulties seem manageable. She did this without minimizing the fact that Fukushin is an art. What kind of art? The art of dance. I left the classes I took with Tracy with an appreciation of the beauty of the dance of Fukushin. She is lovely to study with - both strong and gentle.
