Katherine Delleney Brinkley is a graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine’s Classical Chinese Medicine Program, and licensed by the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners to practice Chinese medicine in the state of Oregon.


Katherine specializes in both acute or chronic pain conditions, women’s health, Chronic Fatigue associated with the Epstein-Barr virus and mononucleosis, chronic lung conditions such as asthma, gastrointestinal issues, and anxiety. Katherine’s studies include two years of formal Western medical training, which she finds helpful in her practice. Not only does this background help her to better understand the condition of the individual, it also helps to bridge gaps between the Eastern and Western paradigms. She has completed an extensive training program in Chinese herbalism through the Institute of Classics in East Asian Medicine, and utilizes custom Chinese herbal formulas when appropriate for certain conditions. 

While Katherine utilizes acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to treat a variety of conditions, her practice is founded upon her belief in preventative medicine. Using the finely tuned methods of Classical Chinese medical diagnosis, she strives to address imbalances before they manifest as acute illness. In the tradition of her teachers, she seeks to support her patients through the entire course of an imbalance until the resolution of symptoms occurs. It is her great pleasure to help her patients discover their own path to well being on all levels: physical, mental and emotional. Katherine believes there is no separation of these three planes within every individual, and accordingly a person may unexpectedly find a transformation taking place on one or more of these planes. For example, an individual may come in for a low back pain issue, but report a reduction or no occurrence of panic attacks present before the treatment.

Katherine has enjoyed a busy acupuncture practice in Tillamook, Oregon for the past 18 years. She travels to the area weekly, she is excited to help people re-balance for optimal health and well being.  Chinese medicine is a safe and side effect free way to achieve lasting results, returning the joy in living!
