About Us

We (John Blank, L.Ac., M.Ac.O.M, and Mia Neuse, L.Ac., M.A.O.M) first started to look for a place to practice together in the Montavilla neighborhood in late 2006. John had been working in a clinic in SW Portland, while Mia was practicing further east near SE 122nd and SE Stark. We both wanted a “mixed” clinic—one that offered both community acupuncture and private treatments. John had a long history of working in a community acupuncture setting, while for Mia it would represent a new opportunity. We wanted to work in the community in which we live, and fortunately, the commercial district of Montavilla had a wonderful space available in a portion of the former Dickson’s Pharmacy.
