Alison Mckenzie, LAc, MSOM
Alison Mckenzie was certain she was moving to the Pacific Northwest to become a marine biologist, but, shortly after she finished her Bachelors of Science at PSU she waded into the world of Chinese medicine. She came to it knowing she needed to make a big change in her life. Having started smoking cigarettes at an early age, and gone well passed the age she promised herself to give the habit up, she
realized something revolutionary was needed. After 5 consecutive days of acupuncture treatment she had given up cigarettes completely and was very impressed by the style of medicine she encountered. She continued to seek treatment and found the list of things she could address in her life with these little, tiny needles was limitless. It became apparent that it could be incorporated with other modalities to achieve even greater health than she could have imagined. No more premenstrual pain, stiff neck from old accidents eliminated, sinus infections and colds did not have to linger. Over the years, she fell in love with the adaptability of the medicine and the respect given to treating the body as a whole. Alison was so fascinated with Chinese medicine that shortly after having her first child, also with the help of acupuncture, she decided to go to school and learn this medicine and be able to share it with others, opening up to a lifetime of learning and connection with patients at the center of her practice. Her favorite thing is to treat patients for their first time with acupuncture, working with the individual and coming up with a solid treatment plan to unblock their path to better health and a more balanced life.
