About

Susanna Low-Beer, L.Ac. is a practitioner with a deep passion for the art and philosophy of Chinese Medicine. This she brings into the treatment room, where she finds full expression working with patients to achieve balance and health.

Susanna earned a B.A. in Art History at Bard College in NY’s Hudson Valley, specializing in the sacred arts of Asia. During that time she apprenticed with an herbalist and learned how to make medicine from wildcrafted plants. Her love of Asian philosophy and culture combined with an interest in herbalism, leading her to pursue a career in Chinese Medicine

Susanna received a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine from the NCNM in Portland, Oregon, focusing on injury rehabilitation and stress relief, under the tutelage of Dr. Youping Qin of Chengdu University, China. She devoted herself to the study of massage, both Asian and European. A key piece of her education was (and continues to be) with Master Zhongxian Wu, with whom she receives training in Qigong and Daoist Healing.

When she is not practicing Chinese Medicine, Susanna expresses herself by making pottery, playing violin, gardening, and enjoying Oregon’s wilderness. She lives in NE Portland.
