I've been going to the Local Healer since last year after a car accident caused me serious neck and arm pain. Bex is amazing and has helped me tremendously with her skill and knowledge of acupuncture and eastern healing. I have been to other places in the past, but Bex is by far the best. She never rushes through a session, and gives lots of attention to detail and goes above and beyond. If you are seeking a skilled, kind and knowledgeable acupuncturist, look no further!
Bex is wonderful! I have been seeing her for 2 years now -after an ankle fracture and later a car accident. I don't know, what would I have done without her healing and enriching presence in my life. Every time I see her, just her welcoming "hello and her hugs" start a healing journey that is practiced with deep humanity and compassion. Bex has helped me reduce my severe back and neck pain and is always so attentive and responsive to my needs. Bex has also inspired me so much to have thoughts that pave my healing process with compassion and nurturing to myself. Thanks Bex for always being there.
Over the years, I've seen a few acupuncturists in Portland, but none have compared to Bex and The Local Healer. Her wealth of knowledge and easy demeanor make for such a relaxing, pleasant, and healing treatment. Bex does her work with love and it shows; her warmth and friendliness are infectious. Acupuncture with Bex is a pillar of my self care and I highly recommend The Local Healer.
Bex of the Local Healer is the most thorough, effective and thoughtful accupucturists I have ever worked with. She takes the time to get to know me and my body and customizes her care accordingly. She has significant diversity of modalities and is proficient in their application. Every visit is a pleasurable and effective experience. I can't speak highly enough of her practice.
Bex is by far the best acupuncturist I have ever seen, and was able to actually explain how acupuncture concepts work in terms that I could easily understand. In the past, my acupuncturists have been vague at best, and while it seemed to be helpful... it was unclear what was really happening and why. Bex also has a way of compassionately analyzing you and quickly finding ways to help in a super personalized way.
I have told all my friends that this is the place to go, and hopefully she still ends up having time on her schedule!
Bex and Michelle are phenomenal healers. Prior to finding Bex, I saw 5 different acupuncturists (once a month) over 6 years to help with my migraines. Bex and Michelle are by far the most knowledgeable and skilled. Most importantly, Bex helped me with my migraines in a way that other acupuncturists have not been able to.
I even managed to convince my SO to see Bex - he was a newbie to acupuncture prior to that and now, he won't go a month without it.
I highly recommend The Local Healer!
I adore Michelle! She's such a gentle, nurturing and effective healer. And the space she & Bex have created is so comforting. It's been a lovely experience and Michelle really goes the extra mile to make you feel taken care of and heard. I highly recommend her and The Local Healer. -Amanda B.
Bex is so welcoming and friendly! I've been treated by Bex half a dozen times. She is very knowledgeable, thorough, heartfelt, and calming. I always look forward to my treatments and go home feeling fabulous! I've been to a number of acupuncturists over the years and I highly recommend The Local Healer! -C.C.
Bex was referred by my massage therapist and I am so happy she was! I have entered a whole new level of communication with my body thanks to Bex's care, teaching and treatment. It has been very fulfilling, and I am nothing but delighted with our work and my healing. I have had the distinct pleasure of referring people to her multiple times already and it has only been a month now that I have been at this. Wonderful experience all around. -Stacey T.
I met Bex through my Kung Fu teacher and was brand new to acupuncture. It was nothing short of wonderful. Bex was very thorough, gentle, and compassionate. It was also my first experience with cupping. It was very gentle, and wonderful. I have nothing but good things to say about Bex and I can't wait to go back for my next session. -Kelly C.
Wonderful, loving, compassionate person, tons of knowledge about everything! I love her healing energy and her healing acupuncture treatments. I highly recommend The Local Healer! -Thuy B.
Bex is one of the best holistic healthcare providers I've met that honors the totality of human body, mind, emotion, and spirit. She's well read, well educated, super skilled, and full of heart. Her work emulates all of that. Plus, she's an amazing mama. Highly recommended! -Melanie E.
Bex is definitely a healer. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, kind, nurturing and generally wonderful person to work with. I enjoy that she gives me as little or as much information as I want about the process. I highly recommend Bex for any of your acupuncture and health needs! -Hilary S.
Amazing! Bex is simply amazing! Her acupuncture treatments are right on and leave you relaxed and clear. I highly recommend her for any issue or pain you are working through. -Abigail B.
Becky did work in both of my pregnancies. Her care is attentive and thoughtful, and her knowledge is encyclopedic. She’s a wonderful practitioner and I would heartily recommend her practice to anyone. -Amanda G.
In a one-size-fits-all medical culture, Bex stands out by using the power of critical thinking to deduce answers that might have remained buried otherwise. Her highly personalized acupuncture sessions left me feeling elated and hopeful. Her diet and lifestyle recommendations were thoughtful, easy to follow and once implemented, very helpful! In a perfect world, everyone would have a health care provider with a gift for listening and holistically interpreting like Bex. I cannot recommend her enough. -Hannah H.
I worked with Bex throughout my first pregnancy and after my daughter was born. She always made herself available to answer my questions and to help resolve any concerns that came up. Bex provided much needed, beneficial insight for me through my postpartum transition. She taught me some amazing energy exercises and also recommended and ordered top quality herbs to help my body heal. The work Bex does extends beyond healing, as she offers friendship, compassion and genuine connection. Thank you Bex! -Lindy K.
Consulting Bex was the best thing I could have done for myself. I have worked with many naturopaths who had recommended diet changes but they were never any help when it came to guiding me through the challenge of changing lifelong food habits. When I had to make diet changes for my health this time I consulted Bex. She gave me thorough guidance, meal plans and resources looking at my particular challenges of being a mother of three and a student to where I was excited to make these changes and have been successful. I will always be grateful to her. -Rebecca Y.
I have relied on Bex for my healthcare needs for over 10 years. She has helped me heal from a wide variety of aliments; everything from emotional issues to broken bones to everyday health. I trust her health advice above anyone else. When it comes to health and healing Bex has a true gift. -Ananda O.
Bex has an amazing personality that puts you at ease. She is exceptionally knowledgeable in her field and always goes above and beyond in her treatments. She takes the time to educate you and allows you to understand your body in new ways. There is an incredible level of skill and understanding that I have never seen in an acupuncturist before. I cannot thank her enough for her guidance and healing. -Ashly L.
