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 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: Friendly, curious, open-minded people who are willing to look into their habits, take responsibility for their healing process, and allow it to unfold at its own pace. *I do not work with children at this time.

Treatment: Clients will receive private, one-on-one, consultations and treatments in my cozy office in Portland, Oregon. Treatments may also include cupping, moxibustion and mini-abhyanga (Ayurvedic oil application) when appropriate.

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