ILEANA BOURLAND, LAc

Ileana’s focus is in heart-centered service. This starts with really listening to her patients - the history, as well as physical and energetic signs and symptoms.

Ileana is an Oregon State Licensed Acupuncturist and Nationally Board certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She has completed additional training at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and in southern India in Ayurveda.
