Dr. Stacey Guggino is a graduate of the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine. Dr. Guggino completed her residency training in Redmond, Washington, practicing primary family care alongside a western medical physician in an integrated setting.
For the past twelve years, Stacey’s personal interests in outdoor sports have driven her to focus on sports medicine and in the treatment of sports injury and pain with acupuncture and regenerative injection therapy. With the addition of moxa, electric acupuncture and cupping, she finds it rewarding to provide drug-free pain management and relief to both acute and chronic injuries. Prior to joining ORM, she practiced these skills for over a decade in an integrated clinic setting, bridging western medical philosophy with the alternative disciplines of prolotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic and physical therapy.
Earlier in her educational career, Dr. Guggino pursued an interest in women’s medicine. Seeking mentorship, she received two years of extended training, further exploring women’s health and focusing on cervical pathology and postmenopausal health. At the midpoint of her medical education, Stacey began work on her master’s degree in Classical Chinese Medicine. This included a year-long apprenticeship formulating and modifying classical Chinese herbal formulas with an emphasis on treating chronic disease. Her master’s thesis focused on the integrated treatment of osteoporosis using a combination of Chinese, naturopathic, and western medicine.
Dr. Guggino has studied and practiced the art of aesthetic medicine for the past 11 years. She uses neuromodulators, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite fillers to achieve a natural “refreshed” appearance. As a result of athletic pursuits outdoors (kite surfing, kite foiling, skiing, mountaineering), Stacey has had quite a lot of environmental skin exposure. Over the years, she has developed treatment strategies to reduce the aging process and support aesthetic longevity for herself and her patients. Dr. Guggino continues to focus on women’s specific issues, counseling women on the stages of reproductive health and vitality.
When Stacey is not in the clinic, she spends her time with her husband and their two elementary school-aged children. Depending on the time of year, they can be found kiteboarding, skiing, mountaineering, or hiking. Her attempts to have her children learn kiteboarding have proven to be unsuccessful thus far but she is undeterred by the challenge!
