  • John Paine

    John Paine Acupuncturist - Lake Oswego

    After leaving a career in finance and doing lots of Tai Chi and deep meditation, I decided to go more on a holistic path of studying acupuncture at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. After graduation, I practiced facial acupuncture then eventually turned to a more traditional, clinical practice. I am very excited to be part of the team at Metis Acupuncture and share our commitment to having a positive impact on health and well being in the Portland-Metro area.

    I use herbal medicine, externally and internally in my practice, I speak to my patients about using food as medicine, and I used, guasha, cupping, ear seeds, shiatsu massage and moxabustion where it is applicable. I empower my patients to find balance in all areas of their lives working with a thorough treatment plan to find diet and lifestyle habits that will form lasting changes in my patient’s lives.

What our Patients are Saying...

  • I've been going to Metis Clinics since it opened. I have found Anita to be a caring, gentle acupuncturist. She has always taken her time to talk with me and learn what I need. Anita has helped relieve me of neck and back pain and given me treatments for overall well being. It's been exciting to see Metis Clinics grow and add staff. Jacob is an excellent massage therapist as is Michelle who not only practices massage therapy but acupunture. I'm grateful for their healing touch and readily recommend Metis Clinics for those who need such help.

  • I have been a patient of Anita's at Metis Clinic for 2 years and she has given me back my life. I have struggled with depression ever since I moved to Oregon from California over 20 years ago. I have tried several psychiatrists with no help and have been on & off medication for 15 years which has helped to some degree. Anita's method of helping me has been wonderful. Along with the acupuncture she has given me "tools" to help me get rid of the depression. At first I was going to her every week, now I go in for a "tune up" every 2-3 months. It is so wonderful. About 1 to 2 days after a treatment I start feeling this wonderful feeling going through my whole body, but especially in my head. When I have a stressful day I am able to handle the stress within hours instead of it bring back any depression. The tools I mention are things we have created together and Anita continually encourages me to continue using them. Some of them are affirmations, reading scriptures, having a creative project (knitting, scrapbooking, etc.) and exercise. Thank you, Anita, for giving me back my life.

    Pat, Acupuncture

  • I have been coming to Metis for well over a year now. I must admit, when I began acupuncture treatment, it was purely to appease my wife. As usual, she was right and I'm glad I listened to her. I started going for one issue, but quickly learned it helped in other areas as well. When I mentioned I had just begun taking blood pressure medication (yet still had high readings), I was told that could be addressed as well. After only a couple of sessions, my BP was at a normal 120/80. It was also recommended to me, that a massage might be a good option to help me with my stress and the chronic and constant neck pain I have had since 1994. After only 1 massage from Tanya, I had my first pain free day in nearly 20 years. I had even seen a Chiropractor back in 1994, which did nothing to ease the pain. The pain came back after a week or so, but after my second massage 2 weeks after the first, I can honestly say I have been pain free ever since. I can't thank Tanya enough for this. On the 3rd session, I asked her to address some pain I had been experiencing in my ankle. After a few sessions focusing on that, this is now pain free as well. I took a 3 month break from the acupuncture treatments, as I had an extremely busy schedule. I noticed my BP had returned to high levels, despite taking my meds. After only a few more acupuncture treatments, it is now back to normal again. Please do yourself a favor, and treat yourself to feeling better. I'm living proof that it works, and so does Metis Clinics! Thank you Anita, Michelle, and Tanya!

  • I have been going to Metis Clinic for approx. 2 years. I have gone to 2 other acupuncture clinics and Anita by far is the best. She has helped me with several different issues. Sleeping, Digestion and Pain Management. All treatments have been very effective. After a facial surgery that results in a lot of post- op swelling I went for acupuncture every day for the first week. When I went to see my Dr. for the 1 week post- op visit, the surgeon and office staff were amazed how little swelling and how quickly I healed. They told me I was in the top 1% of their post- op patients and asked me what I did. I shared with them my acupuncture treatments. I know they are now recommending this to other patients. I believe that Anita is very professional, skilled and gifted in her profession. As a RN I have high expectations with my health providers and Anita exceeds and delivers every time.

  • I have been going to the Metis Clinic for acupuncture for about a month. I hop from the Oregon City location to the Lake Oswego location. Each time I have worked with Anita. I honestly could not possibly give a better review. If I could give six stars I would. Anita is just wonderful! She truly makes you feel like she cares about your over all well being as a person and not only your medical progress. She has the biggest heart and it shows in the work she does. She really does go above and beyond to ensure that you are happy and comfortable at all times. If you are thinking about giving acupuncture a try, I strongly recommend going to see Anita.
