My primary philosophy in the treatment of patients is to assist and empower a person to heal his or her own body through the many varied techniques of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). I utilize all the ancient theories of TCM and translate them into our modern lives. Whether I am treating your physical pain, helping you quit smoking, helping you battle a long-term illness, or treating other issues, my focus is on teaching you to lead a healthier life and prevent future illnesses with Chinese medicine. When undergoing a treatment in Chinese medicine, you will release pain, gain more energy, improve your facial appearance, and feel better emotionally and physically. The primary focus in treatment is to uncover the underlying and root cause of imbalance in the body, which is creating disease. The body consists of many levels. Your current condition and symptoms are the superficial level of imbalance; however, as you undergo treatment, your system unfolds to reveal the underlying, constitutional pattern - the deeper level. It is through the process of treatment that you can access this deeper level, correct the root of imbalance, and find lasting health.  

I have a great deal of experience with acupuncture. Bethany is the most thorough and skillful practitioner I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She has a whole-person approach that is very reassuring. After working with her, my issue was resolved and I feel wonderful.

I worked with Bethany for years until the pandemic brought me to Portland, OR. I haven’t had acupuncture since. I just don’t think it would be the same. Her approach was holistic, and I always felt like I was really being taken care of. Truly a reverence to Eastern medicine and philosophy.

Bethany is totally professional and very personable. I would've given 5 stars but sadly, for me, acupuncture hasn't worked. I tried it years ago for my arthritis in my hand, with no luck. I thought I'd try it again ... still didn't help. It's not Bethany's fault. She's wonderful.

I've been lucky enough to have Bethany Leddy as my acupuncturist and Chinese medical doctor for close to 20 years. She's helped me with allergies, insomnia, muscle spasms, respiratory illnesses, and healing bones after injuries. She is a great diagnostician, keeps thorough records, and understands what points to needle and what herbs to prescribe. She's also great at advising when to seek advice, testing, or treatment from a Western medical doctor and how to synthesize Western and Chinese approaches. She takes time to talk to patients and to understand the full context of our lives and health issues. She's smart, funny, interesting, and dedicated. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Bethany is a healer! Just being in her warm, positive presence makes a difference. Over 7 years, Bethany treated me — helping alleviate menopause symptoms, depression and low energy, stress, even head colds. She listens carefully and treats you thoroughly, knowledgeably and skillfully, all with a caring, conscientious and compassionate “bedside manner”. I wholeheartedly recommend her. J. Walsh

Bethany helped me get my menopause symptoms under control. No more all night hot flashes! She’s very thorough and gives us ample time every session to discuss progress. I personally find her so easy to talk with, down to earth and kind. Highly recommend!
