Primary Care Physicians, Naturopathic & Acupuncture For Portland, Oregon
At Terrain Wellness, our integrative treatment philosophy combines the best of standard primary care medicine with the more organic experience provided by naturopathic and Chinese Medicine acupuncture. This means that our doctors address patients’ acute medical concerns while also alleviating the deeper underlying causes of chronic illnesses. We treat a diverse range of patients suffering from conditions including chronic/acute pain, hormone imbalances such as thyroid and estrogen dominance, adrenaline & cortisol and testosterone), complex headache patterns, infertility, traumatic brain injuries, addictions, emotional disorders, gastroenterological disorders and autoimmune disorders. Gut health issues such as imbalanced gut flora, candida die off symptoms and other GI issues can result in an on-going low-grade inflammation that can adversely affect everything from thyroid function to our joint cartilage.
We address these specific conditions while also alleviating the deeper emotional and spiritual stress components of why we are more prone to illness in the first place. We prefer natural medicine and spend longer with our patients because taking extra time leads to better quality service. Portland natural medicine means defining ‘wellness’ as being healthy physically, emotionally and spiritually. We invite everyone in Portland, Oregon to share in our vision.

This makes Prolo a much safer and more sustainable option for those suffering from osteoarthritis or other serious joint injuries.
Our lead physician, Dr. Danielle Lockwood, has been accepted into a very competitive mentorship program on injection therapy for treating and reversing cartilage, tendons and ligament damage. The fact that she is both a doctor as well as an acupuncturist experienced in using needles painlessly makes her an ideal candidate for the program.

One of the main tenets of natural medicine is improving the quality of the foods we eat. At times, our doctors will recommend minor changes to food choices that can produce health and wellness. In other instances, more specific changes such as the SIBO diet, moving away from inflammatory foods and other more significant changes may be needed. At the end of the day, we believe in nourishing foods that support health and strength.
Learning the “Terrain” that makes up who you are is a lifelong process that involves everything from what types of foods work best with your personal health all the way to the kinds of activities that expand your spirit and personality. Portland natural medicine and acupuncture is more than just medical treatments, this is a lifestyle of moving toward a greater knowing of the self allows us to have healthier lives and more rewarding interactions with others. We look forward to helping you map out your own terrain and discovering more about yourself through acupuncture, applied kinesiology and naturopath services. Rather than alleviating various symptoms, our role as Naturopath in Portland means that we believe a better way forward often lies in increasing self-awareness and finding out what supports greater health and wellbeing.
IV Therapy in Portland, Oregon
Terrain Wellness proudly offers IV Therapy (Intravenous Nutritional Therapy) for established patients at our Portland clinic. Our doctors prescribe IV Therapy on a case-by-case basis after reviewing relevant health information with the patient.
Providing excellent medical care (including IV Therapy) that is custom-tailored for you and your nutritional needs means that we only offer IV as a treatment modality to patients when it is deemed medically beneficial. Prior to prescribing IV Nutritional Therapy, our doctors will review the patient’s current/past medications and allergies, screen for health conditions which may contraindicate IV Therapy and review lab tests as appropriate.
Our physicians’ vetting process with patients helps insure that our IV Nutrition, glutathione pushes, B-Complex, B-12 injections, methyl cobalamine (an activated form for patients with MTHFR genetic variants) and many other minerals are indicated for your health conditions and relevant to your specific wellness goals. Rather than having off-the-shelf products like the well-known Meyer’s Cocktail (a common IV for Cold & Flu recovery), we customize our IV treatments specifically to you.
Thank you to our wonderful patients.
