We are pleased to welcome Dr. Michelle Young, ND, LAc to our Oregon Regenerative Medicine team. Dr. Young is licensed in both naturopathic medicine and Chinese medicine. She studied at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and she continues to further her expertise in functional and regenerative medicine, medical aesthetics, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, metabolic health and digestive function. She is forever a student, learning from and for her community. And she believes that when you feel good, you do good. Simply stated, when we optimize our physical, mental, and spiritual health, we have more space for compassion, kindness and patience. And can’t we all use a bit more of that these days?
Dr. Young integrates the wisdom of ancient healing traditions with the innovation of modern science. With expertise in multiple modalities, she creates individualized treatment plans to prevent disease and promote wellness. She is thrilled to provide supportive therapies as you prepare for regenerative orthopedic procedures. Evidence continues to prove the benefits of diet in controlling inflammation, and researchers confirm that your metabolic, digestive and hormonal health can contribute to a more successful treatment1.
ORM remains the industry leader delivering biocellular injection therapy, and we know you will benefit from other modalities as well. Dr. Young provides acupuncture and cupping, both of which can reduce pain and increase your range of motion. Her acupuncture style is a fusion of Classical Chinese Medicine philosophy and palpation-based needling to alleviate dysfunctional muscle groups. Additionally, she utilizes electro-acupuncture, where adding a bit of electrical stimulation can be an effective tool to manage chronic pain and alleviate nerve irritation.
In addition to naturopathic, functional and Chinese medicine, Dr. Michelle Young is experienced with prolotherapy, and she is thrilled to further her knowledge of injection therapy with the skilled providers at ORM. She looks forward to meeting you all and understanding how she may support you on your health journey. So, if you see a new face in the hallway, stop and say hello. We think she’s pretty great and can’t wait for you to meet her.
