Kevi Keenom LAc, MAcom
Owner- Little Wing Acupuncture & The Wildfire Clinic
I am an Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) graduate who also studied at the Institute for Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ICAOM) in Honolulu, Hawaii. I begin studies for my Doctoral degree from the OCOM in the Fall of 2018 and have been in practice locally since 2011. I also interned in two Nanjing, China hospitals under several famous Nanjing medical herbalists and acupuncturists in 2011 and loved every minute of it. As a board certified medical Chinese herbalist, I often incorporate herbal formulas and other supplements into a treatment plan. In addition to acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, electro-stimulation acupuncture, and Tuina massage techniques, I also use gentle styles appropriate for treating children that employ non-insertive tools such as Shonishin.
The myriad of painful conditions such as migraines and sciatica to neck pain and nausea are concerns commonly treated in my practice. I also specialize in helping to restore optimal function after surgeries or injuries and accidents including motor vehicle accidents. The majority of my patients come in seeking help for chronic and acute pain at first, and later return for the finer tuning that acupuncture offers including better sleep, improved digestion, stress reduction and hormonal regulation. Auto-immune conditions and syndromes such as Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are also quick to respond to the therapies of Chinese medicine. In addition to treating pain, I'm often helping females balance hormonal transitions through menstrual cycle onset to menopause, and all the places in-between. As a mother to a 3 year-old and aunt to several other young ones, children are a welcome joy in my practice. I find that teenagers, kids and even babies are a highly rewarding patient population to work with because their youthful systems respond quickly back towards a healthy normal.
An ideal patient for me is someone who is ready to overcome a new pain or lingering old pain and it's limitations. A great patient is also someone who understands that attaining optimal health is a process that takes a little effort and commitment. I welcome you to join me at any point along your healing path. If you would like a chance to warm up to an acupuncture session by first trying a non-needling treatment, such as Tuina or Shonishin, that is an option. Many of the treatments for kids are performed needle-free using special Chinese and Japanese techniques that are as enjoyable as a massage would be.
I happily collaborate on integrative care treatment plans with your doctors and other providers, as an integrative approach is ideal for speeding up your healing process. Feel free to reach out with a phone call or email with any questions. Fifteen minute consults are always available at no cost. I am also happy to let you know which insurances I am an in-network provider for (hint: the majority of them).

ROSS MCCALLUM, LAC, MACOM
Training and Experience
I completed my training at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland with a Master of Oriental Medicine degree. This school has been rated the best school in the country in the field several times. The program at OCOM was three years long, including a one year internship at several area clinics. I also trained for a month in two different Nanjing hospitals, where I got still more hands-on experience treating patients with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. I also received my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville prior to starting OCOM. I continually keep myself up to speed on the latest research in the medical field. I was a co-chair of the research club at OCOM the whole time I was there and I was also President of the Chinese language club during my time in grad school. After graduation from OCOM I worked for about a year as an associate acupuncturist of my teacher Dr. Yan Lu at his clinics in SE Portland and Vancouver, WA. I've been on my own as a contractor or simply independent since then. After starting at Clackamas Injury Rehab in 2011 I completed training to become both a Chiropractor's Assistant and a Physical Therapy Aide as well. In the past I worked at Zen Space Healing Center in NE Portland and at Skyline Integrative Medicine in SW Portland. I have worked at My Path Wellness in Milwaukie which is now (adjacent to) my own clinic called The Healthy Foundation in Milwaukie. There's a lot of overlap in there, with almost always at least 2 places going on at once. I like to multitask. And now I'm also at The Wildfire Clinic!
The number one most important tools in my toolbox are my ears. I use them to listen! Speaking of tools, an important thing to consider is the fact that I don't have to do acupuncture to help you. I'm an Oriental Medicine practitioner, not just an acupuncturist. If we do acupuncture, I use small needles and a guide tube to keep my acupuncture pain free. My massage style can be pretty deep if necessary and I do a lot stretching if required. This massage can include cupping and gua sha (youtube has good videos if you don't know what these are). I keep a table warmer and TDP lamp warm for each patient that needs it, not to mention blankets, sheets, and gowns to keep you warm and modest. I ask a lot of questions and feel like I treat each patient as a whole, unique individual rather than just a number or a series of symptoms. I am a nutrition nut so I make sure to include food as medicine for every patient. That may extend to herbal medicine if food, massage, and acupuncture alone aren't enough. I also make sure to include a lot of other patient education for my patients when I think it will help, including information about supplements, exercises, stretches, referrals, books, and articles.

KUMIKO SHIRAI, MSOM, LAC
Kumiko Shirai, MSOM, LAc, grew up in Kobe, Japan. At the age of fourteen years, she moved to Eugene, Oregon with her parents to study English. Influenced by her mother, Taiji (TaiChi) master Machiko Shirai, she learned to appreciate Asian medical and martial arts from an early age. Kumiko has been practicing Aikido for over twenty years. After graduating from high school, Kumiko attended Oregon State University (OSU) where she majored in Chinese Studies and graduated with a Bachelor in Science. She then continued her studies in Chinese philosophy and science by enrolling in the School of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, where she ultimately graduated with her Masters in Science of Oriental Medicine. Having experienced both Eastern and Western cultures, Kumiko understands how the ancient medicine of East Asia benefits the people of the West. She is able to bridge cultures and approach each individual by teaching them about Eastern wisdom for the benefit of their physical and mental health. Beside acupuncture, Kumiko is specialized in classical herbal medicine in which she received rigorous training in the Han-dynasty style of Chinese herbal prescriptions. She also continued her specialization by training in Japanese abdominal diagnosis, also known as Fukushin. Kumiko is currently in private medical practice in Portland, Oregon. She teaches Abdominal Diagnosis seminars both in the US and in Europe. Kumiko enjoys training Aikido, Taiji, spending time with her daughter, and traveling especially to her home, Japan.

Dr. Nini Callan, ND
Dr. Nini received a Doctorate degree in Naturopathic Medicine and a Master of Science degree in Integrative Medical Research from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM). When not in the clinic, she serves as a BRIDG fellow in integrative medical research at NUNM and the University of Washington, where she investigates women’s health.
Dr. Nini believes that acute health issues of today, if left unaddressed, develop into chronic conditions in the future. She has seen time and again, in her own life and in the lives of her patients, how everyday choices actively influence what happens tomorrow, next month, next year, and ten years down the road. We create our lives—and determine our health—with each choice we make. This outlook informs how she sees her patients and it keeps her focused on the fact that tomorrow’s health begins today!
Dr. Nini looks forward to working with you and will be accepting patients soon.
