  • No need to overwork your body to relax your patient enough to receive the therapeutic work that you love doing.

*Our current LMT’s are ready to chat you up about their experience with this unique position to help you understand it deeper and learn about the gratification it can bring.

PDX Acupuncture is a busy integrative acupuncture, massage, functional nutrition, and cosmetic acupuncture clinic downtown. We specialize in helping humans feel and look their best on the inside and outside. Our focus is pain management (chronic, acute, MVA, sports medicine primarily), cosmetic acupuncture, micro-needling, and overall well-being. Our clinic is unique in that each treatment comes with 30 minutes of therapeutic massage after acupuncture from an LMT.
That could be you!

We have utilized these integrative therapies in our clinic for 14 years now and find them extremely beneficial for our patients’ needs and continuity of care. So we need an energetic, kind, and smiling face with great hands to come work with us.

We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable LMT’s to join our team

  • Ideally, we would have an LMT work a shift with the acupuncturist AND one solo for 4 X 60-90min table massage. But, we will take a combination of either that may work with your schedule.

We are looking for a person who…

Has a passion for healing with natural medicine, an enthusiasm for acupuncture, massage, and herbal/nutritional therapies. Is punctual, professional, likes to laugh and cry with patients and loves to help others on their path to amazing health.
