Robert "Ryan" Love, MAcOM, LAc

I was introduced to Acupuncture after I was in a car accident and left with lingering shoulder and neck pain.  I had the pain for about four months and thought it would go away on its own, but it didn't.  I was dating a lovely young lady at the time who just started at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.  She suggested I visit one of her instructors about the pain.  I have to admit I was pretty skeptical at first, but after my very first treatment I got remarkable results.  Later, I suggested to some of my family members to try acupuncture for things like low back pain, digestive issues and hot flashes.  All of my family had great results as well. As time went on I found myself spending more and more time in the Acupuncture community, I married that lovely lady, and after sitting in on one of my wife's classes, I decided that I had found my calling. I had always wanted to find a career that truly helped people and Chinese Medicine is a natural, holistic, and time-tested medicine that is truly helpful for almost any medical condition!  

I was trained in TCM style acupuncture and it is the most scientifically tested and widely used method of acupuncture.  I always tailor my treatments to fit the needs of the patient and I treat all patients with respect.  I have a natural talent for treating pain with Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Cupping, Shiatsu, Gua-Sha, and Moxibustion.
