School is back in swing, and at Today Integrative Health and Wellness, we know how crazy this time can be. Kids are rapidly growing and developing and therefore snacks and packed lunches need to contain adequate protein, fat, and complex carbohydrates to keep them going healthily and happily all day long.

What our patients are saying...

Dr. Wright always addresses my concerns and takes her time to explain things in a way I will understand (even drawing pictures if need be for my comprehension!). She is compassionate and I always leave her office confident with her course of treatment.

Rain is a sensitive, knowledgeable, respectful practitioner. I met with her regularly for three years and the only reason it ended was because she moved away. I miss her terribly. I had tried other acupuncturists in the past, but I never saw any one person for any length of time until I met Rain. It’s not just that she is a good acupuncturist, it’s the way she listened to me and discussed my concerns – with such an open mind. She always had good suggestions for whatever ailed me, but never pushed them on me. I also felt like it wasn’t just the needles that were helping, but it was her whole presence and the way she administered the acupuncture that I experienced as healing. I highly recommend her. You will be fortunate to experience her expertise as well as her presence. Thank you, Rain.  —Addie Baughman, NYC

Yu Jin is the best acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist in the Portland area. My health was very poor and deteriorating rapidly when I first started seeing her and with her consistency of excellent care, I can say I am enjoying good health. :)

Dr. Misty White is the best naturopath I’ve been to, and I’ve been to quite a few. I’ve had celiac disease and other food intolerances for years and she is the most knowledgeable doctor I’ve met. She has been a big help to me and I’m much healthier for it. Dr. White never tries to force anything and really works with me. She will be my primary doctor for years. Location is easy to get to with parking lot.

I saw Yu Jin Lee today using a Groupon deal for acupuncture. This was my first experience with acupuncture, although I have received a mini acupressure session years ago for a wrist injury. I went to Ms. Lee for problems associated with menopause. I felt she was very thorough and professional. We spent about an hour discussing my medical history from the paperwork I completed. Although this may be annoying for some people, I appreciated the review. I like to know that my medical professional has read and understands what is going on. Check into an emergency room and count how many times you are asked the SAME questions by several people. It’s a prudent practice, I think. After she completed the review, she listened to my pulse, REALLY listened, for several minutes, and then started with the needles. They don’t really hurt anymore than a rubber band snap.

Yu Jin is amazing, her connection with her patient’s and concern for their wellbeing can not be overstated…she is one in a million.

I became quite impressed with Dr. Wright during our recent initial consultation. She spent a lot of time asking questions and listening intently and seriously. She instills confidence through her professionalism and her scope of knowledge.
