ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE HOUSE CALLS: 

I am happy to come to your home or office for a house call.

My name is Lowell Chodosh ND, LAc and I’m a licensed naturopathic physician and acupuncturist. I am doing HOUSE CALLS in Astoria and the surrounding areas. I will bring my table and supplies.

I was practicing for many years in Portland but now live in beautiful Astoria and hope to establish a practice here.

My sessions are $90/ hour.

Please call me at (503) 662-6118 to arrange for a visit or if you have any questions.

Please leave a message if I can’t get to the phone. I will call you back.

Also I don’t bill insurance but will be happy to provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance.

 Answers to some common questions are on my FAQ page.

Here are a list of my services:

Massage, Acupuncture, Microcurrent therapy and Naturopathic Medicine.

MASSAGE: Koruko massage-This is a type of specialty massage I developed that combines shiatsu or acupressure, craniosacral therapy, reflexology, polarity therapy and optional scalp and/or ear acupuncture. It is a massage that balances all the body’s energy channels, invigorating as it vitalizes the body with energy.

ACUPUNCTURE: An ancient Chinese science of balancing energy and directing the body’s energy or Chi (Qi) to heal itself and alleviate pain using thin sterile needles. Acupuncture can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in Koruko massage where, upon request, I may apply needles to the scalp and ears.

MICROCURRENT THERAPY: a therapy using an electrical machine that provides a current closest to that of the body so that its not so strong and rarely actually felt. I use it similar to acupuncture but without needles. So for those afraid of needles or wary of acupuncture, this is a great alternative. It's very effective in balancing the body’s energy, especially, in areas of pain, for wound healing, and injuries including sprained ankles, help in mending bones and other musculo-skeletal problems. A thorough assessment of the problem is necessary to determine whether microcurrent therapy is appropriate, something that can be easily evaluated and tried during my first visit.

NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE: This is a medicine using a number of different natural therapies to aid the healing of body and mind in chronic or acute illnesses or injuries. Its main principles are treating the whole person and looking for the cause of an illness. I specialize in homeopathy, craniosacral therapy, the use of supplements as vitamins, minerals etc, and dietary counseling.
