Kathleen Russell Port is licensed to practice acupuncture and herbology by the state of California Acupuncture Board. She is also a diplomate in Chinese Herbology and Acupuncture (granted by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine). She graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Masters degree in Oriental Medicine. Since 1997, Kathleen has maintained a private practice in West Los Angeles that focuses on acupuncture and herbs, but also includes nutritional support, Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture and the therapeutic application of essential oils. Prior to acupuncture, Kathleen studied and taught yoga for 11 years in Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. She held a teaching certificate in the Iyengar tradition of yoga.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

The most important reason someone chooses me is that I listen to them, address their questions and concerns, and then—based on that initial chemistry—they decide to trust me. I care deeply about my patients, take them seriously, and they connect with that. I give them my full attention and frequently stay in the room with them the entire treatment. I find techniques, protocols and tools with which they resonate. If someone is too sensitive for needles, I might apply essential oils on acupuncture points. Someone might need a blood test, or a referral to another medical professional, or dietary suggestions. I have a gentle touch. I treat my patients according to what they need, not according to a style of treatment.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

pain relief, Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture, adrenal support

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am thrilled when someone steps off the table and exclaims 'wow!', when we both see the immediate impact of their treatment. I'm most proud when someone refers a new person to my practice; that they valued their experience enough to share it with someone else. I'm pleased when someone with a chronic condition feels that we are moving them towards their relief and wellness, and chooses to stay the course of treatment.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

When a new patient explains their health history and I am able to explain the unique pattern of their disharmony, they are grateful that I understand, and I enjoy that moment of connection. When someone has a stubborn or chronic condition, they might not be able to hold the initial results for more than a day, but they get a sense of where we can go with this, and that motivates them to continue with treatment. That moves me deeply. I enjoy offering solutions and options that they feel are workable. I am very happy when a patient returns after a successful course of treatment for support in another area, and then chooses to come in for a seasonal “tune-up.”
