Wild Oak Wellness is a comprehensive Holistic Health practice, which focuses on Chinese Medicine and other natural and holistic healing modalities, founded by Dr. David Campbell.

Dr. David Campbell earned his Doctorate of Science in Oriental Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM.edu) and is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the State of Oregon. Dr. Campbell is also certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM.org) as a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, which is their most comprehensive certification, requiring proficiency in four areas: Foundations of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture, Biomedicine, and Chinese Herbology.

In his practice of Chinese (East Asian) Medicine, Dr. Campbell treats the whole person, including body, mind, & spirit, through stimulation of the channel system (aka meridians), application of internal as well as external herbal formulations where indicated, use of soft-tissue manipulation such as CranioSacral & Tuina, dietary exploration, and lifestyle modification through changes in exercise, practices, and habits. Dr. Campbell works from a perspective informed by the classical notions to treat the root of disease whenever possible, and to stay rooted in spirit during treatment. Dr. Campbell also sees the goal of good health as defined by the Chinese classics as 通神明 tōng shén míng allowing the free-flow of spirit-light (conscious awareness) and 調陰陽 tiáo yīn yáng harmonizing Yin & Yang (opposing forces/processes). Dr. Campbell knows that overall health & wellness are important, but he also acknowledges that they are ultimately a resource for living a meaningful life.

Dr. Campbell is also an executive board member with the role of Director of Clinic Operations at Whole Systems Healthcare (wholesystemshealthcare.org), which is a integrative healthcare non-profit organization whose mission is “To promote health and healing through the holistic application of systems science.” The vision of Whole Systems Healthcare is “A healthcare system capable of effectively accommodating multiple medical and healing systems and worldviews, while supporting equal public access to preventative and restorative health care.” Whole Systems Healthcare is currently working to establish methodology for the application of System Science to Integrative Healthcare, as well as working on grant proposals for clinical implementation of its healthcare models. Dr. David Campbell is also Clinic Director and a Chinese Medicine Provider at the Whole Systems Healthcare Portland Clinic (Portland.wshcare.org).
