Very impressed! Great acupuncture, well organized front desk. Liz is fantastic, and I'm not a fan of needles. Finally got some relief from back and neck pain. Looking forward to a few more sessions!

I highly recommend Oliver Leonetti at Innergate Acupuncture! I have seen him for the last 12 years for various ailments - ranging from nagging sports injuries to digestive issues to insomnia/anxiety, and he always provides the highest level of care that truly lasts. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but he is super kind and caring and always take the time to truly listen. I always feel better after leaving my appointment. I honestly do not know what I would do without Oliver or Innergate Acupuncture! Also, I've seen several of the acupuncturists there, and they are all fantastic as well.

I can't recommend these guys enough!
I have a 10 yr old competitive skier who was having some knee pain & had never had acupuncture done before...not only did these guys gently ease him into the entire process - they also helped him get back on the ski hill after the first couple of treatments
I was super impressed with their professionalism & how both Liz and Casey approached his injury - now my little guy looks forward to going to his acupuncture appointments!
Yay! Thank you a zillion times over for taking such good care of my little guy.

I used to think acupuncture was sort of hokey. Not total witchcraft, but definitely not the magic, cure-all that people said. Well, folks, a few months in and I can report that I'm a changed woman!
Well, really, it only took one session. Terry took my whole health history into consideration and helped with everything. Anxiety, sleeplessness, colds, ankle injuries, back pain--you name it. I've come in with problems and always left improved.
I'm sure all the acupuncturists are lovely, but I want to stress how awesome Terry is. She takes my concerns seriously without making me feel like I'm at a stuffy doctors office. She approaches her work with humor and friendliness and is spot on with her treatment. Terry has made me feel comfortable from the get-go and has made my weekly appointments something for me to look forward to. My friends all have heard me rave about her, so I'd say everyone I know should go see her, but then I may never be able to squeeze in my appointments again! Just kidding, of course.
Also, big props to the front desk staff too. They have been super kind and helpful when guiding me through insurance issues or unexpected after work traffic. I'd highly recommend Inner Gate SE to anyone with any ailment!

Wow such an amazing place! I have been going here for a while and every time I leave happier, healthier, and less stressed. Terry is amazing and is so attentive, kind hearted, and genuine! I always feel heard and listened to by her and she always does her best to access every thing plus more. I absolutely love her and highly recommend this place.

I've been going to Inner Gate Acupuncture since I moved to Portland in 2016. When I first started going, I was in treatment for a previous injury involving disc herniation, torn psoas and groin, and back pain. Later, I fell at work, and suffered a cervical spine and shoulder strain/sprain. I began seeing Oliver once a week at that point, and he was honestly, the only reason I felt better every week. I moved to Austin, and miss them every day. This office sincerely has every part of my big ole heart. Oliver's knowledge was able to tackle to injuries as they would mold and morph, and he constantly gave relief. I never left there feeling the same - always better. Plus, they all have you laughing or smiling every time you're there. They're considerate, attentive, and insanely intelligent. I don't write reviews, but I feel as if someone changes your life, you should say something.

I have been seeing Erik for acupuncture for about six months - initially coming for plantar fasciitis. I was impressed at the holistic approach he took - looking at the entire body not just in the main area I was experiencing pain. My heel problem is now gone and I've continued to come in regularly to deal with other issues - and also just to feel better. I always leave feeling relaxed and refreshed after an appointment. All the staff are friendly and professional, and Erik is a joy!

I've been meaning to write this for some time and am finally getting to it! This place is saving me - Erik and his staff are incredible - truly an oasis of healing. I have been dealing with a few issues and each is being addressed with great care and expertise. I actually feel better when I leave (and days after - a miracle!). Erik listens with depth and really tackles everything down to the finest point. I ask a million questions and he has answers and then some. I can't recommend this office enough. They are compassionate and kind and fun (an added bonus!).

This is an excellent place to come for accupuncture. They treat you very well and the accupuncturist I use, Terry, got me through my sciatica which had plagued me for three months before I went to see her. She really cares and spends time listening to you and understanding the problem you are experiencing. Her technique is excellent as well. I highly recommend her. The office staff is always helpful as well. I have never waited very long for an appointment so the scheduling is on time as well.
