Each fall, we invite complementary medicine providers—acupuncturists, chiropractors, naturopaths, physical and touch therapists—from across the Portland area to tell us who among their peers they’d most recommend to our readers. These 86 names represent the top 5 percent of this year’s nominees; they are the professionals to call, their colleagues say, if you want your wellness in great hands.
METHODOLOGY: Using an online survey system, Portland Monthly solicited peer nominations from professional complementary medicine providers in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties. To ensure that the nomination process was peer-based, survey participants provided full contact information before nominating up to three names per practice area. Portland Monthly then tallied the results, selecting the top 5 percent of vote recipients in each practice area before submitting the final list to our fact-checking process.
