Ada has been in private clinical practice for the last ten years in Portland since graduating. She is a dedicated health professional who has spent 20 years as an educator and advocate for access to personalized, safe and effective health care options.

She blends Five Element Theory and deductive medicine to create highly personalized treatment protocols for her patients.

She is licensed to prescribe nutritional and supplemental guidance and creates personalized Chinese herbal formulas for her patients as indicated in their treatment planning.
Ada is deeply passionate about empowering her patients through challenging circumstances and times in their lives. Using the treatment strategies of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ada offers gentle and effective treatments which help the body rest, self-regulate and recover.

Expect to leave feeling relief each time.
As a Performance Bodywork client for the last year, Ada is excited about the healing potential of combining Traditional Chinese Medicine with the modern light and frequency therapies at Performance Bodywork for amazing outcomes. When not in practice, Ada may be singing with her six-year-old daughter, making Cuban food, listening to lectures about science and healing and generally always in the momentary pursuit of the moment.
