The Owners

Eric Strand, DAc, PhD, LAc
Eric Strand, DAc, PhD, LAcPresident & Founder
Eric is a 2001 graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, and an eight-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Although his medicine allows him to benefit people with all disease patterns, his main focus is on women’s health, pediatric medicine, and musculoskeletal disorders including sports and motor vehicle related injuries. He personally believes that regardless of the form of medicine you seek for healing, the ultimate commitment comes from within; you must have the desire to heal, otherwise no medicine can improve the quality of your life.

Dr. Strand has a clinical Doctorate Of Acupuncture, a Masters of Oriental Medicine, and holds PhD’s in sociology and philosophy. When he is not practicing medicine, he is traveling the Pacific Northwest and beyond, enjoying scuba diving and teaching scuba as an Open Water and Advanced Skills instructor.

Dr. Strand is in clinic all day Monday and Wednesday, as well as Friday mornings.

Daniel is a 2000 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College, now Western States University, and has been serving the Gresham/Troutdale community since 2001. His strengths include his ability to perform gentle, yet effective manipulation coupled with a desire to educate patients regarding all aspects of their care. Daniel has a history in electronics engineering, computer drafting and a career in software development before he returned to school for pre-med in the mid 90’s followed by his chiropractic education. Outside the clinic, he enjoys spending time with his wife, playing music, and a new hobby of building historically accurate wooden ships (1700-1900’s).

Dr. DesJardins is available for patient care Monday through Friday.

Why Wait?

Nothing to lose and everything to gain.

No side effects. No surgeries. Just your health... Naturally!
Why Wait?

Ross is a 2010 graduate of the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, having worked in the restaurant industry for years before going back to the University of Tennessee at Knoxville to get his degree in psychology in 2007. He specializes in pain and nerve dysfunction, including issues arising from car accidents and work injuries. He believes that his ears are his most important medical tools and treats each patient as a whole person in his integrative approach to wellness. 

Outside of the clinic, he plays drums in a funk band, gets in and on water a great deal, hikes perhaps excessively, camps outside his perfectly acceptable home, reads a lot of books, plays video games and tabletop role-playing games, and spends as much time with his young daughter as she’ll tolerate.   

Ross is in the clinic on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
