Welcome to Milwaukie Acupuncture, the private practice of Eliot Sitt, L.Ac.
If you are in pain, under stress, or otherwise trying to improve your health, I’m here to help you in a way that is affordable, professional, and kind.
I practice traditional Chinese medicine, a system of medicine that includes acupuncture, herbs, & Chinese massage.
In my experience, these modalities may help with a wide variety of health conditions, either as an alternative or supplement to conventional care.
To schedule, you can reach me directly at 541.680.5660, stop by the clinic, or pick your appointment time online.
I highly recommend Eliot for your acupuncture needs. My husband started seeing him after two herniated discs in his neck. Eliot's expertise, practice, knowledge, and calm atmosphere provided the pain management he needed to deal with a painful health issue without the use of medication. My husband went from a skeptic of acupuncture to a full advocate of its medicinal purposes. He also went from being unable to move his head and dress himself to being fully rotational and able to hike. Eliot was kind, professional, and affordable. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for acupuncture services.

I am out-of-network for Moda, Kaiser, and United Healthcare.
Automobile / Worker’s Compensation
If you are recovering from an automobile accident or were injured at work, your insurance may cover the cost of your treatments.
Acupuncture is a safe and surprisingly relaxing therapy. The needles are small and shouldn’t hurt, other than a quick poke upon insertion. Many people report tingling, buzzing, or mild aching sensations. Most people experience a general sense of relaxation.
Tuina massage (“twee-na” ) is rhythmic with smooth, controlled movements. It’s especially beneficial for muscular tension, stress, and pain. It can be combined with acupuncture or used as a primary treatment.
Chinese herbs range from food grade spices like cinnamon and ginger to more intense medicinals with strong effects. Single herbs are most often combined into elegant, well-balanced formulas that have been passed down and refined for centuries.
Herbs are available raw (to be cooked), powdered (to be mixed with hot water), or as herbal pills or tinctures.
I am a board-certified herbalist and I supervise and teach in OCOM's large Chinese herbal medicinary. The herbs that I use are carefully sourced for quality and safety.
Diagnosis & Evaluation
These treatments depend on a good diagnosis in Chinese medical terms. In order to determine the direction of treatment, I may ask questions, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, and feel different points on your body. I may also recommend lifestyle changes or seeking care from other kinds of providers when appropriate.
Alert, relaxed movement can do wonders for your health. It reduces stress, increases awareness, and refines your control of your body. Tai Chi and Qigong are traditional exercises that emphasize relaxation and smooth, coordinated motion.
