About


At Bardo Acupuncture & Ayurveda, Dr. Vivian Linden LAc. DACM, AP/NAMA integrates the frameworks of Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine for diagnosis, assessment and treatment while also leveraging diagnostic theory, tools and treatment modalities from Functional / Western / Biomedicine in order to help clients identify root causes, find solutions and, most importantly, experience relief.

If you are a woman looking for a licensed healthcare practitioner who can: 

-Give you an Ayurvedic constitutional and imbalance assessment

-Prescribe personalized Ayurvedic Lifestyle activities

-Provide immediate relief with acupuncture

-Prescribe herbal medicine from Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western Pharmacopeias

-Suggest lab tests that might be helpful (and help you make sense of your results once you get them back)

-Discuss Functional Medicine principles such as genetic testing/methylation and modern dietary strategies such as Paleo, Keto, GAPS/Specific carbohydrate diet, carnivore/”lion” diets, and how all these things can fit into an Ayurvedic or Chinese Medicine perspective

Then you’ve come to the right place!

This is truly Integrative care!

Conditions Treated: I have experience treating a wide variety of conditions, especially pain, depression/anxiety, women’s health and digestive issues. At this time, I am especially motivated to provide affordable care to those experiencing difficulties associated with hormone imbalances associated with the peri/menopausal process, especially symptoms such as anxietydepression and insomnia that can seriously interrupt our ability to function in our lives. Are you 35 – 55 and things feel like they’re falling apart? I know what you’re going through and I’d love to be part of your support team as you move through this major life transition!

But I can and do treat, or help treat, a wide range of conditions and symptoms. Let’s chat!

Who I work with: Women who are willing to work collaboratively and take co-responsibility for their healing process, allowing it to unfold at its own pace. *I do not work with men or teens/children at this time. I also do not work with those undergoing gender reassignment/cross-sex hormone treatments as this is a specialized field that is best served by a practitioner with extensive training. There are many in the Portland Metro area with this expertise.

Treatment: Clients will receive private, one-on-one, consultations and acupuncture treatments in my cozy office in South East Portland, Oregon. They will also be offered connection to supportive women’s groups and other helpful modalities.

Cash, check or credit cards, HSA/FSA’s accepted.

How To Get Started? Let’s chat and find out how I can be of service to you. Shoot me a text or email and we’ll set up a time to talk on the phone.
