    Cyndee Overland has a Masters degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and graduated Magna cum Laude from Emperor’s College in California. In 1995, Cyndee interned in two hospitals in Shanghai, China, where she treated hundreds of patients suffering from a variety of conditions such as paralysis and pain from strokes, polio, Bell’s palsy, sciatica and TMJ. She also participated in a research study at the Salvation Army Rehabilitation Center in Los Angeles that used acupuncture to treat patients with drug and alcohol addiction. Cyndee is a Diplomat of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbology and is certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists. Cyndee taught at Emperor’s College, YoSan University and Samara University—the three largest and most established acupuncture schools in the Los Angeles area.

Cyndee’s treatment approach integrates the concepts of Traditional Oriental Medicine to assist patients in their own healing process. Through Oriental Medicine, one begins to understand how emotions affect the physical body and how lifestyles affect the emotions and the relationship between mental, physical, emotional and spiritual balance.

      Rachel Pearce, L.Ac.


      After earning her Masters in Oriental Medicine from OCOM in Portland, OR, Rachel traveled overseas to continue her education. In China Rachel studied and practiced alongside Chinese doctors that had their education passed down through their family for generations. This opportunity expanded her knowledge and experience which she took to Nepal and worked as a volunteer acupuncturist with the Acupuncture Relief Project. She had the pleasure to help people suffering with pain, asthma, digestive issues, eye disorders, insomnia and stroke.

      Sports Medicine

      Rachel has been involved in sports her whole life including track and field, xc running, rugby, roller derby, mountain biking and snowboarding. Growing up as a competitive figure skater she understands the demands it takes on the body and mind. In recent years, studying under the direction of Whitfield Reeves, Acupuncturist for the 1984 Olympic Team, Rachel has gained advanced training in the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of sports injuries and pain. She enjoys working with athletes to keep them in top physical health, and assisting in recovering quickly should an injury occur.

      Pain

      Although Rachel works with pain anywhere in the body, she specializes in the neck/shoulder and low back/hip regions. Issues in these areas can cause pain, numbness and/or tingling to other areas including arms, hands, legs, feet, and head. Individual assessment gives each patient a treatment plan that is unique to their own body and set of symptoms.

      Post-Op Care

      Surgery is another form of injury, and healing from the trauma can take a long time. Working with internal herbs, external herbs and other Chinese Medicine modalities, the pain and recovery time from surgery will be less.

        Hannah Hogan, L.Ac.


        Hannah’s holistic patient approach involves extensive questioning, diverse treatment methods and dedication from both patient and practitioner. Examination of each patient’s lifestyle (diet, stress, activities) allows for recommendations that can greatly impact the individual and the speed of their recovery. Her treatments not only involve acupuncture, but also include an array of other techniques (including massage, cupping and gua sha) that allow each patient to reach optimal health. Hannah’s areas of specialization include women’s health, orthopedic and sports acupuncture, and the management of chronic pain.

        Hannah began her career as a massage therapist and doula in 1999. Her career as a massage therapist included 10 years of private practice, and three years serving as an instructor of massage and anatomy/physiology at the National Holistic Institute in Emeryville, California. In addition, from 2002-2004 she attended numerous childbirths as a doula. In 2006, she began her studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine in order to deepen her knowledge of holistic healing. She received a Masters of Science in East Asian Medicine from the Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley California in 2009. Hannah continued her training in 2010, completing a 3 month internship in China through Zheng Jiang University in Hong Zhou, specializing in Women’s Health and traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine. Hannah continues to expand her knowledge through continued participation in workshops, apprentice programs and specialized education opportunities with leading acupuncturists.

        Hannah loves her career and feels honored to support people in their healing journeys. When she is not at work she enjoys dancing, hiking, and most of all playing with her young daughter.

          Danella Durieux, LMT


          After receiving a fair amount of massages that I found dissatisfying, I began massaging friends and family when I was 16 years old. Massage has always been a part of my life in some form and until I moved to Bend and had no one to work on, I didn’t realize how important it was to me. This void in my life, and my mother, encouraged me to get my license and begin working as a Massage Therapist. In 2013, I graduated from Sage School of Massage in Bend, OR and have since worked at a few places before coming to C.O.A. I am trained in Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage, Prenatal, Stretching and Chair Massage. My massages generally include a combination of relaxation and pain relief unless the client requires or requests otherwise; customizing each massage is very important to me. I believe that being present during every massage and focusing on each muscle I am working on makes a significant difference in how the client feels during and after our session. When I am not massaging I enjoy reading, bird watching, dancing, playing music and drawing.
