Danielle Lombardi, LAc, and Dr. Liz Giles, DC, are amazing healthcare practitioners
"I have been going to Danielle for acupuncture for about 3 years for a variety of treatments. She is the most effective acupuncturist I have ever been to. She has treated me for digestive issues, muscular issues, physical trauma, emotional unrest, and everything else that has come up! She is professional, kind and has incredible intuition-guided skills. She is very grounding and open.
I started going to Liz for chiropractor treatment upon a recommendation from Danielle for a chronic shoulder issue. Liz is also amazing! I had been to 2 other chiropractors and massage therapists and nobody was able to relieve the pain I was in. Liz was able to fix my issue in just a couple of sessions.
Liz and Danielle are both extremely talented healers. I highly recommend Portland Healing Space to anybody who is looking for relief and healing.”

You'll be in great hands with Danielle Lombardi, LAc, and Dr. Liz Giles, DC
“Managing old (and new) injuries, stress, and muscle tension is a regular part of my life. Dr. Giles, DC, and Danielle Lombardi, LAc, complement one another perfectly with their separate healing specialties, and I have relied on them for the past seven months to keep my body in check.
Danielle Lombardi’s ability to restore my body to balance with her acupuncture magic never ceases to amaze me. Seriously. I always walk out of her treatments feeling peaceful, grounded and happy. Even on my most stressful days, she transforms my angst into a puddle of calm. Sometimes I’ll neglect to tell Danielle the full range of my body complaints (because who wants to seem like a whiner?), and ALWAYS I leave feeling like she magically tuned in to the trouble spots, and smoothed out the wrinkles.
Dr. Giles is a chiropractor and licensed Pilates instructor. She is incredibly thorough and puts careful thought into her treatment approach at each individual session. She uses a range of techniques: soft tissue therapy, rehab exercises, Graston technique, a more traditional chiropractic adjustment, taping... Sometimes she makes a simple inquiry that ends up resolving long-standing pain. For example, my old back injury left me with a tilted pelvis, a curvy lower spine, and (up ‘til recently) daily pain. Dr. Giles studied my medical history, and analyzed my gait, stance and movement patterns. She recommended a heel lift, and two days later I was strutting around pain-free. Boom.
But my personal favorite of all Dr. Giles’ treatment techniques is PILATES! I’m a fitness trainer, and I specialize in core-focused workout designs, but not until Dr. Giles prescribed some Pilates exercises did I experience the full healing potential of deeeeeep core activation. This week, after several days of home improvement tasks that had me contorting in all sorts of bizarre, unsupported positions, my back pain was sky high. Five minutes – literally 5 minutes! – into my session with Dr. Giles, the pain slipped away.
Go see these healers! They’re brilliant, passionate, and totally relatable. You’ll be in great hands.”

I highly recommend Danielle Lombardi and Liz Giles
“I started seeing Danielle Lombardi, LAc (acupuncture), for inflammation in my digestive system. I have had amazing results!! After just two sessions the pain is gone, and I have no noticeable inflammation!! Amazing after years of struggling! I have had acupuncture in the past, and I appreciate her intuition and gentleness! She spends the time needed listening to your concerns as well as your body. So wonderful!
After seeing Danielle, I decided to see Liz Giles, DC (chiropractor), for shoulder pain. Although I have only been for one visit so far, I truly appreciate her style of chiropractic. She is thorough and very knowledgeable about ways to get different areas to open up. She is helping me get to the root cause, which I have been needing! I have been adjusted by other chiropractors who do not address the root issue, and my body goes right back to the old patterns! She does not force but gets into places by softening and allowing the body to open. I appreciate that!
Both highly recommended!”

Through acupuncture Danielle Lombardi, LAc, has given me the first relief from migraine pain in years
I've had mild migraine symptoms for months, so I went to see Danielle Lombardi, LAc, after being treated by a neurologist without real relief. I've only had one treatment and already feel better than I have in years. Danielle has that combination of impressive education, exquisite perception and compassion. She is, quite simply, a true healer.

An enthusiastic five stars for Danielle Lombardi, LAc, and Dr. Liz Giles, DC!
I broke my finger nine years ago and began to experience chronic pain. I tried a number of treatments, but nothing seemed to help. I then went to see Danielle Lombardi, LAc, and after a few treatments the pain had subsided! Since that time, I've also seen Dr. Liz Giles, DC, for chiropractic care, and continue to see Danielle regularly for pain and stress management. I don't think I can say enough good things about their services, atmosphere and overall awesomeness. An enthusiastic five stars!

See Danielle Lombardi, LAc, for headache and allergy relief
I’m so glad that I found Danielle Lombardi, LAc. She’s helped me reduce the frequency and intensity of my headaches, my neck pain and my allergies. I know if I hadn’t been having these treatments I also wouldn’t have the same calm and ability to cope with life’s stresses.

Acupuncture with Danielle Lombardi, LAc, relieved severe pain from my sports injury
When I came to Portland Healing Space, I was feeling pretty desperate and anxious. After two weeks of severe back pain following a sports injury, I was getting worse every day. To make things worse, I was supposed to leave on a ten-day road trip, and I was starting to wonder if that trip would even be possible. Danielle Lombardi, LAc, was confident that she could help me with my lower back issues, and she quickly went to work.
Having never been to an acupuncturist, I was a little bit unsure of what to expect. She was happy to answer all of my questions and explain all of the procedures we were doing. I was shocked at the reduction of pain that I felt immediately after my visit. The increase in my range of motion was extremely encouraging. I can't say enough about this great clinic.

Danielle Lombardi, you are the most amazing health practitioner. Ever.
Thanks for another fabulous treatment Danielle. I am sitting at home with my feet in your suggested epsom salt bath. Just so you know, my nausea is completely gone and my energy level is up, and while my headache has not completely disappeared, it is definitely much milder.
You are the most amazing health practitioner. Ever.
My blood pressure is down, thanks to acupuncture with Danielle Lombardi, LAc
Amazing experience with Danielle Lombardi, LAc, whom I have been seeing to lower my blood pressure. As a former CEO of a pharmaceutical company, I don't use medicines anymore because of the side effects. After a month of treatment my BP went down from 170/100 to 140/85. During acupuncture treatment, I was able to feel some waves of energy running in my body. It's absolutely fantastic. On top of that it's not painful at all. I could not be more satisfied.

Four treatments with Lombardi, LAc, and my frozen shoulder pain virtually disappeared
After just four treatment sessions with Danielle Lombardi, LAc, my frozen shoulder pain virtually disappeared. Danielle used other healing techniques in addition to acupuncture. Each treatment was preceded by an analysis of the effectiveness of the previous meeting and the opportunity to describe and discuss any new problems which may have arisen. I highly recommend sessions with Danielle to anyone experiencing pain or any other medical problem.

Acupuncture Danielle Lombardi, LAc, has really changed my experience and worldview
My life has changed so much since I started working with Danielle Lombardi, LAc. My stress level has drastically decreased, my digestion is better and I finally can sleep through the night. I don’t even know where I’d be if I hadn’t done acupuncture.
Acupuncture has really changed my experience and worldview. I’ve started to see all the bright sides of things again ,and I feel like the world I’m living in is a better place to be.
