Ryan McAfee, LAc

I am a nationally certified acupuncturist who appreciates the complexity of the human body and mind in a holistic way. This perspective allows me to look at the whole picture to fully understand why your health concerns developed in the first place.

I approach each patient as an individual and take the time to develop a treatment plan that is specific for your needs. My focus is on providing you with thorough, individualized and comprehensive care treating a wide variety of issues including headaches, musculoskeletal pain, stress related issues, irregular menstruation, digestive issues, insomnia, and practically any other concern. This is possible with a holistic perspective!

I received my undergraduate degree from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, and later found myself in an unfulfilling real estate career with a desire to be of a greater benefit to those around me. After great consideration, I entered the Masters Program at Texas Health and Science University in Austin, Texas. I quickly realized that this path forward would allow me to interact with the community on an individual basis while helping people achieve balance and restored vitality. There is no greater feeling than having a patient express that they feel better after a treatment!

As an intern at the Austin Acupuncture Clinic, I successfully treated several hundred patients with acupuncture, cupping and Chinese herbs. I continued this work as an acupuncturist for the P&O cruise line based in Sydney, Australia. In that position, I had the opportunity to provide treatments to patients on a daily basis. This allowed me to see how quickly acupuncture can change a person's health. These experiences significantly added to my excitement for providing these services to as many people as possible.

I am a life-long Texan, but always had a fascination with the Pacific Northwest region. I am beyond excited to begin a new chapter in my life and practice in Astoria! If you run into me outside the clinic, it is likely to be in the local shops searching for classic jazz and blues vinyl. Or you might see me out on a trail looking UP as I am an avid birder, and I am so ready to get out and explore the beauty Oregon has to offer.

I look forward to meeting you!
