Sheridan Horning, LAC

Born and raised in a small suburban town in Indiana, Sheridan moved to Salem, Oregon in 1996, to attend Willamette University, focusing on East Asian Studies and Theatre. Attracted by Portland's thriving art and music scene, she moved here in 1999. She then completed training first as a massage therapist and then got her Master's degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. She has fun supporting local performer friends and getting involved in a show at least once a year herself. Sheridan's other hobbies include hiking, dancing to glitchy electronic music, riding her bike, cooking vegetarian organic meals, hunting at thrift stores, and walking around Portland, sometimes even in the rain.

Sheridan Horning says...

Sheridan's specialty is treating the physical, mental, and emotional components of pain. When most people are in pain, it's almost impossible for them to be as brilliant as this world needs them to be. She enjoys working with pain from all sources, and helps people suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, and more find balance mentally and emotionally.

What she's found so far as she's practiced is that when people are in pain and left untreated, many other conditions, including migraines, respiratory issues, insomnia, digestive disorders, gynecological concerns will follow.

Sheridan Horning says...

Sheridan's initial education in medicine began as a Licensed Massage Therapist, a license she still holds. After successfully helping many patients get out of pain using her hands, she realized she wanted to offer more than pain relief. This lead Sheridan to enroll in the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, and graduating in 2008 with a Master's degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Bringing Traditional Chinese Medicine to Portland

At the end of her program at OCOM, Sheridan had the opportunity to study with world-renowned doctors at the Nanjing Traditional Chinese Medicine University in China. From 2005 to the present, she has studied with the principal teachers of the Ling Gui International Healing Qigong School, who are the grandchildren of the doctor to the Last Emperor of China and continue to carry an important piece of Chinese Medicine lineage. Sheridan was certified and has been teaching Ling Gui School qi gong since 2007, and was certified as a qi gong tuina (Chinese bodywork) practitioner in 2008.

Participating in education, both as a student and a teacher, is something Sheridan highly values. She currently serves on the faculty of East West College of the Healing Arts and previously served as a teacher's assistant at OCOM from 2008-2010.
