Eva Hosseinion, L.Ac., MSOM, MD
Eva graduated from the classical Chinese medicine program at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland. However, her path to becoming a practitioner of Chinese medicine began in the Czech Republic, where she graduated from medical school. During post-graduate training in family medicine in the Portland area, she developed an interest in alternative approaches to health and healing.
Eva offers expertise in acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and qigong. She is enthusiastic about treating a variety of conditions, such as mental and emotional imbalances, stress-related conditions, and insomnia; pain conditions including headaches, nerve pain, and musculoskeletal pain; women's health issues, including symptoms of menopause, PMS, and painful menses; digestive issues; respiratory issues such as colds, asthma, and allergies; and cardiovascular issues such as hypertension and palpitations. She has a particular interest in treating children and trained in shonishin, a Japanese system of acupuncture developed specifically for pediatric patients, where no needles need puncture the skin.
Eva's training in classical Chinese medicine allows her to take advantage of herbal formulas described in the founding texts of Chinese medicine. In her experience—and that of her teachers, Heiner Fruehauf, Haosheng Zhang, and Arnaud Versluys—using these safe and powerful herbal formulas facilitates the treatment of a wide spectrum of diseases.
Eva also integrates the medical applications of qigong into her practice. She studied the therapeutic applications of tendon and meridian strengthening qigong, known as Jinjing gong, with local teachers as well as with the lineage holder of this tradition, Master Wang Qingyu in the Jiashan monastery in Hunan, China. In fact, Eva wrote her dissertation on the clinical applications of qigong. She is very excited about the opportunity to teach patients how to heal themselves with custom-tailored qigong prescriptions and with regular qigong classes at Hawthorne Wellness Center.
Eva enjoys spending time in the nature with her husband, Shahram, and her German Shepherd, Max. She also finds tranquility playing gu qin, an ancient Chinese stringed instrument.
