While pursuing her undergraduate degree in health sciences in Santa Cruz, Calif., Elizabeth Larsen found her passion for anatomy, the inner workings of the human body and the whole person-centered approach of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. She is particularly drawn to sports medicine and pain management.
She received a master’s degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine and is accredited by the American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, the Oregon Medical Board, and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She firmly believes in the evidence-based approach to integrative medicine that Pure Life Clinic practices.
A strong advocate for integrative care, Elizabeth believes that together, Western and Chinese medicine create a powerful healing tool.
