Courtney Connell is a compassionate and highly trained acupuncturist who has a gentle and effective style blending multiple acupuncture methods to provide customized treatments for the many disorders he is capable of treating such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, digestive disorders, autoimmune conditions, and psycho-emotional issues.

Acupuncture Therapy is a clinic that was passed on from local Eugene, Oregon acupuncturist, Stuart Greenleaf.  Mr. Greenleaf and Courtney spent six weeks together in training in which Stuart passed on his methods he developed during his 30 year career.  The methods consist of a gentle alignment of the spine and the application of sophisticated specific frequency micro-current stimulation of acupuncture points. The method is very effective at relieving pain and encourage healing for many disorders. 

Dr. Courtney’s has specialized in pulse diagnosis throughout his career. Initially he was mentored by William Morris at AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine when Dr. Morris was developing his Neo-Classical pulse diagnosis style. Dr. Courtney uses the pulse as his primary window for diagnosis and treatment. He calls this style pulse balancing. As the acupuncture is applied the pulse will respond confirm the treatment is affecting the system. These treatments have a tendency to trigger the relaxation response and regulate the autonomic nervous system and are generally used as a prelude to pain relief. When the body is in a relaxed para-sympathic dominant state it is capable of healing.

Dr. Connell received his Masters in Science and Oriental Medicine from AOMA Graduate School in Integrative Medicine in Austin TX in 2008.  Since graduating he has sought additional training in the art and science of Chinese Medicine, consistently taking continuing education seminar to satisfy his fascination with his discipline.  He attended a two year program in Worsley School 5 element medicine and Shen-Hamer pulse diagnosis with Lonny Jarrett which he completed in 2015.   In 2019 he attained a First Professional Doctorate from Pacific College of Natural Medicine, San Diego.  He is currently pursuing training in treating trauma, anxiety, depression and PTSD utilizing frequency specific micro-current stimulation and the 5 element paradigm, exploring the link between physical pain and emotional trauma.

About Me:

My name is Meg deCordre and I received a Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida in 2015. I also have a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology, and I am currently enrolled in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program at Pacific University. I have experience working in a variety of settings including outpatient care, community mental health, and integrative settings. I enjoy working with a broad range of presentations, including depression, anxiety, trauma, attachment, grief, identity issues, and chronic pain. I have experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds of age, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

As an acupuncturist, I specialize in five-element and extraordinary vessel style treatments. As a therapist, I integrate a variety of approaches including emotion-focused, acceptance and commitment (ACT), and existential/humanistic therapies. My background in both psychology and acupuncture have made me passionate about the holistic potential of an individual. I believe that one’s healing transformation whether physical, psychological, or existential, should not be confined to a single dimension. Further, that the more “humanness” and sense of safety and support that is applied to a therapeutic system or approach, the more the capacity to reveal, encounter, and transform.
