Jessica L. Dahlton L.Ac. Pediatric acupuncturist 

Owner- The Wildfire Clinic

Jessica was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Her heart lead her west to attend The Evergreen State College in Olympia, WA where she would also meet her husband Andy. Jessica received a BA in film and BS in premedical sciences from Evergreen. In her last year she combined her love for the sciences with her love of film creating 2-D paper cut animations of bacteriophage replication and organic chemistry. While at Evergreen Jessica had the incredible fortune to work with her teacher and mentor Dr. Elizabeth (Betty) Kutter who taught her more than molecular genetics and good lab technique, she showed her how to be a leader in her field. 

Jessica was amidst studying for the MCAT when she noticed that her newborn was displaying signs of reflux. What would happen next would change the course of how she would practice medicine. Not wanting to put her daughter on a PPI, their MD referred Jessica's family to a woman who she described as practicing "the high woo-woo" explaining "I don't know how it works, but it does". Jessica was intrigued and went to see Dorothy who swiftly and methodically determined what substances Jessica's daughter was reacting to in her breastmilk and causing the reflux. She then asked which one of these things she would like to reintroduce, so that she could clear the sensitivities. Jessica was skeptical to say the least but followed Dorothy's instructions. As if by magic, the newborn's reflux resolved overnight. No more projectile vomiting, no more sour breath, the painful gas was gone, "colic" was a thing of the past. Shocked and in utter disbelief that the body could heal itself in this way she was determined to learn more. This is how Jessica came to East Asian medicine, and what brought her to focus on children and their families.  

The Dahlton family moved to Portland, OR so that Jessica could attend the top ranked Oregon College of Oriental Medicine for her masters. She is now currently completing her doctorate at with an emphasis in advanced pediatrics at the same school. Her doctoral work has allowed her to study and engage with leading pediatrics experts from Japan to Amsterdam as well as some of the most impressive names in scalp acupuncture. 

Jessica founded The Wildfire Clinic in 2017, building possibly the most beautiful wellness center in Portland. As of January 2018 she runs the clinic from her home state of MN.

Kevi jpg.jpg

Kevi Keenom L.Ac. 

Owner- Little Wing Acupuncture

Kevi Keenom has been practicing acupuncture since 2011 and was been trained at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, after she transferred there from the Institute for Clinical Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Honolulu, Hawaii. Her post-graduate work has taken her to two Nanjing, China hospitals on internships with several famous Nanjing medical herbalists and acupuncturists. She has trained in modalities appropriate for treating children, and has her board certificate to practice Chinese herbal medicine as well.

 

Mother to a toddler and long-time Aunt of three, Kevi has a love of children and enjoys the creative process of treating children. She finds this highly rewarding because children (like animals) respond very quickly to return back to optimal health. In addition, women's health and hormonal imbalances are a highlight of her practice. She has also found that many auto-immune conditions including Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue respond very favorably to her style of practice. Commonly she treats chronic pain of all kinds, from headaches to sciatica, and also excels at restoring optimal function after surgeries, injuries and other accidents such as motor vehicle related.

 

An ideal patient for Kevi is someone who knows that healing is a process and wants to give their body every opportunity to achieve optimal health through the transformative work that acupuncture and herbal medicine can offer. Children who don't want acupuncture are also great candidates for her practice, as most of the treatments for kids are needle-free. Kevi loves to integrate the work of other doctors and will gladly work with your other treatment plans to create a complimentary plan to speed up your healing prognosis.

Ross B&W.jpg

ROSS MCCALLUM, LAC

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 ClackamasInjury Rehab in 2011 I completed training to become both a Chiropractor's Assistant and a Physical Therapy Aide as well. I worked at Zen Space Healing Center in NE Portland for a while. I spent some time at Skyline Integrative Medicine in Portland as well as at My Path Wellness in Milwaukie. I worked in SE Portland in my own space for a time and am now now at 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!

Treatment Style
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 on 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.

15 minute consult - Free

One session (in person/by phone, including music by request, herbal consult, acupuncture, acupressure, laser acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, TDP far infrared heat lamp therapy, a table warmer, nutrition advice, exercise advice, supplement "prescription," and/or a nap, but probably not all at once:)  - $65 (packages available)
