Joel Amezcua

Joel Amezcua
MTCM, Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM), L.Ac. 

Joel’s background in western science and eastern medicine has led him to a belief in an integrated and collaborative approach to helping his patients achieve their health goals. Over the past 20 years of his career in Central Oregon, he has had an opportunity to work closely with yoga instructors, Naturopathic physicians, Physical Therapists, Massage therapists and Nurses, which has increased his knowledge of what these other modalities have to offer patients.

Joel has come to specialize in Orthopedic/Sports acupuncture. This approach incorporates orthopedic assessments and more of an anatomical technique without compromising the paradigms of Traditional Chinese medicine. During his career he has had experience working with elite athletes, injured workers, car accident victims, chronic pain sufferers as well as people at end of life. This has led him to an understanding of what specific techniques will lead to a faster recovery for a patient to return to a better quality of life.

He believes in the human potential of all of his patients and helps guide them so they can become “their own best doctor”.
