Welcome to Earthworks Acupuncture!
Joy Rosa is a recent graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, in Portland, Oregon, where she received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She will be nationally certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine by the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and licensed to practice in Oregon in 2020.
Joy’s curriculum began by studying the teachings of Classical Chinese Medicine, in Asheville, North Carolina. Her education has continued in an additional four-year program which included current western medical modalities, acupuncture, herbal medicine, Shiatsu massage, dietary therapy, and self cultivation in the form of Qi Gong.
In her spare time, Joy enjoys hand crafting herbal salves, stone medicine, sound therapy, taking respite in the great outdoors, reading, collecting vinyl records, and playing music in a southern-styled Samba inspired drum core, when she visits back east.
In practice, Joy enjoys bridging the Classics with western medicine, and strives to meet each patient where they are in their wellness journey. The modalities mentioned below will guide you to a short description of each, and how and why each can be chosen to best suit your needs during your visit.
