Sallie McKibben, LAc


Sallie McKibben is a licensed acupuncturist (LAc) and Chinese herbalist who specializes in treating chronic illness, PTSD, and anxiety disorders. Sallie provides acupuncture therapies (needling, moxabustion, cupping, gua sha, and herbal therapy) in addition to Shiatsu massage, diet therapy, and lifestyle counseling. She is in network with BlueCross/BlueShield, Providence, ASH, HealthNet, PacificSource, CareOregon, Aetna, United Healthcare, and Cigna health insurance, and also accepts all MVA and worker's comp cases.  She also accepts any insurance that pays for out-of-network acupuncture- please check your insurance plan.

Sallie McKibben is an accredited Diplomat of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M.) by the NCCAOM.  Diplomats of Oriental Medicine are certified in acupuncture, bodywork, and Chinese herbal medicine by the National Certification Committee of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).  Not all acupuncturists have completed the national board exam for Chinese herbology in addition to the three required board exams (Acupuncture, Biomedicine, Foundations of Oriental Medicine), due to the complexity of the subject.  This designation, as well as ongoing study and research, are important qualifications for the prescribing of Chinese herbs.

Sallie loves helping her patients reconnect to their own natural and innate healing power and find beauty within themselves as it is found within all beings, connecting the metaphysical to modern research and the mechanisms behind them.

A naturalist at heart, Sallie McKibben strives for more sustainable practices at home, work, and in the community. Having grown up in the woods of Missouri, the outdoors are an inseperable part of her identity.  When not treating patients or teaching students at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) medicinary, she is busy building tents and running amok with her son.
