Integrative Medical Clinic in Portland, Oregon
Terrain Wellness is an Integrative Medical Clinic in Portland, Oregon. Although we can prescribe medications, we prefer naturopathic, acupuncture & physical medicine when possible. Our philosophy as primary care doctors specializing in naturopathic and acupuncture means that we write prescriptions for medications sparingly and seek clinical outcomes wherein medications are no longer necessary.
Our approach to healthcare means looking at the physical as well as psychological, emotional factors that contribute to health and wellness. Improving these other aspects to health will also improve physical health; anyone who has experienced lasting relief from anxiety, stress or depression can attest to the close relationship between physical and emotional/spiritual well-being. Our founder and lead doctor, Dr. Danielle Smith Lockwood (formerly Dr. Danielle Anderson), believes in differentiating our clinic from others by addressing this emotional work while also offering better care and an improved patient experience.
Better patient experience also includes seemingly mundane details like creating a pleasant environment in our office, support staff checking patients in and out efficiently and accurately while our phone staff provides remote support to address patient scheduling needs. Our support staff handling these details in the background frees our care team to focus their attention on our patients’ healing process through acupuncture, naturopathic care and physical medicine.
Our goal as Naturopathic Doctors serving Portland, OR is to create a community where people no longer need medications to support their daily activities. While Dr Dani does have full prescriptive rights, she’s more inclined to work with you to reduce and slowly eliminate the need for medications by addressing the underlying causes of disease in the body. At Terrain Wellness, we understand that healthy foods, lifestyle and emotional state form the major pillars of wellness in the body when they are properly balanced. We help restore that balance using gentle, natural techniques such as acupuncture, herbal remedies and neuro-emotional techniques among many others. We can and will prescribe medications when the need truly arises, but we do this sparingly and would generally write a new prescription with a reduced dosage with the goal of safely weening the body off of potentially harmful medications.
Dr Dani believes in the healing power of nature and creates space in her life to spend time outdoors in the Pacific Northwest to re-center and balance. Throughout her journey in self-exploration, Dr. Dani has found that connecting with nature has created healing in her life. The duality of self-exploration and exploring nature led to using “terrain” as a metaphor to describe how people can connect, re-balance and learn themselves. Come see us to learn your own unique terrain and experience life to the fullest.
