IEP was established in Portland, Oregon in 1992 as a division of the Institute for Traditional Medicine (ITM). We offer low-cost, traditional-style medical services including acupuncture, moxibustion, shiatsu (Japanese massage), herbal formulas, nutritional supplements, and naturopathic consultations. Treatments at IEP are intended to be an adjunct to standard medical care that is received elsewhere. Our efforts are an aid to pursuing personal health practices—exercise, diet, stress-reduction, and other good habits—to help alleviate symptoms and improve emotional and mental health. The clinic presents a format for treatments that is different from most private practices, as outlined below.
Dragonfly relieves the emotional, relational and practical challenges of cancer. At our core, what we offer is community, the feeling that you are not alone during this alien, isolating experience that strips even the closest and best-intentioned family and friends from your ranks. We live to provide understanding, support, resources and opportunities families will rely and reflect on for years to come.
