with John Rybak
February 14, 2020
John Rybak is the owner, medical director, and an acupuncturist at The WellBridge Clinic in Portland, Oregon. Before becoming an acupuncturist, he was a publishing research biologist. He also endured years of chronic pain. In 1997 John reluctantly tried acupuncture as a ‚Äòlast ditch effort for relief. Those acupuncture treatments began to transform his understanding of our mind and body. So, John did what any good scientist would do in the face of a paradigm shift…he packed a bag and moved to Asia to learn more.
After more than 20 years, John is still passionate about holistic health and the science behind how acupuncture works. John uses the linguistic model of Traditional East Asian Medicine as an organizational system to see how the systems of our body work together and depend upon each other. Thats how he creates successful treatment strategies for a variety of dysfunction from pain conditions to digestive disorders to seasonal allergies.
He currently lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife, Corinne and daughter, Amrita.
