ANDREA CLOW, LAC., FABORM, CD(DONA)

Licensed Acupuncturist & Owner of Sherwood Acupuncture

Andrea sees patients on: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and every other Saturday.

Andrea received a Master's degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) in 2011, one of the oldest and most comprehensive programs in the country. Andrea is licensed by the Oregon Medical Board as well as the California Board of Acupuncture as an acupuncturist and herbalist. She has been practicing in alternative medicine for almost 20 years. 

 "Acupuncture and Oriental medicine continues to amaze me as these modalities provide my patients with incredible success. I have seen patients obtain full relief and transformations, with many reporting better sleep, improved digestion, better circulation and an overall feeling of calm." Already with a background in massage therapy, Andrea was introduced to Chinese medicine in 2006. This form of medicine resonated with her. She knew she would be able to help patients and reduce pain by using Chinese medicine in combination with her massage therapy training.  "Pain can lead patients to discover a deeper understanding of self, ultimately leading them to make healthy lifestyle changes."

During her studies at OCOM and through life experiences, Andrea developed a personal connection to treating women’s' health and fertility. She considers herself to be a child of infertility as her parents struggled to get pregnant and holds this dear to her heart. Andrea focuses on the treatment of women’s health and fertility and enhancing overall reproductive health. Andrea is a fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Health (ABORM) since 2016 and a Dona International certified Doula since 2017.

"My passion for Chinese medicine comes from my desire to help relieve pain and suffering, which can come in many different forms, on many different levels. I continuously educate myself to better treat patients and work toward understanding where patients are in life with love and compassion, empowering them to make healthier, more informed decisions."

Andrea believes the mind, body, and spirit are interconnected in ways we can't always see or explain and there is a time and place for all forms of medicine. She treats patients, herself, and her family naturally, giving the body guidance to heal itself. Combining acupuncture and herbal medicine with massage techniques, as well as nutritional and meditative recommendations; Andrea's goal is to assist her patients in harmonizing the connection of mind, body and spirit to restore the balance within.

During her down time she spend as much as she can with my family hiking, gardening, cooking and just being silly.
