Liz Richards, the inspired owner of Blossom Clinic and Liz Richards Acupuncture, PC, has more than a decade of practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine and treating fertility and pregnant patients in Portland.
Passion drives her work and led her to create the Blossom Clinic where she and her team of practitioners can provide excellent care for the whole family through a variety of specialty health fields.
Western Medicine, said Liz, is a “vigorous and imaginative journey towards investigating the human body and mind piece by piece,” but Eastern Medicine is the practice of “putting it all back together again.”
She blends her knowledge of Western and Chinese Medicine with a deep intuition to create a healing and trustworthy space. The practitioner-patient relationship is a dynamic one for Liz, who works with you to design an effective treatment plan. She approaches her work as a true art and infuses the poetry of acupuncture into treatment sessions.
Liz is a 1996 graduate of Cornell University where she earned a BS in Human Development & Family Studies and pre-medical sciences. She was awarded a National Institute of Health scholarship from its Minority International Research Training program to investigate medicinal plant usage in the Yucatan.
She also earned a masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.
Liz is a member of RESOLVE National Infertility Association, and National Association of Reproductive Medicine. She is licensed in the states of Oregon and California.
