Annabelle Snow’s primary clinical focus is women’s health with a special interest in fertility and working with families through all stages of pre-conception, pregnancy and the transition to parenthood. Annabelle also works with PMS, painful or irregular menses and PCOS, as well as stress-related conditions, digestive health and seasonal respiratory complaints. Annabelle received her Chinese Medical training at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) receiving her MAcOM in 2004. She received her BFA in photography/design from the University of Oregon in 1998.
Annabelle was first introduced to the healing power of acupuncture after surviving a nearly fatal car accident in 1990. She sustained multiple injuries and was fortunate to have a family friend who was able to treat her with acupuncture as soon as she was released from the hospital. This experience changed her life and eventually led to her decision to pursue studies at OCOM.
Annabelle works in partnership with each of her patients to understand and treat the root cause of the distress, illness or disease. Her calm nature and gentle acupuncture techniques provide a solid foundation for each individual healing relationship. She develops a comprehensive treatment plan using a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and nutrition+lifestyle counseling.
Annabelle splits her time at the Wellness Center managing the business and seeing patients. In her free time, she loves gardening, photography and spending time with her family in nature.

"The North Portland Wellness Center is a wonderful center for healing. They changed my life and my perspective of Eastern Medicine. After being told by a reproductive endocrinologist that I would not be able to conceive using my own eggs, a friend suggested acupuncture. Annabelle Snow is a gifted healer; she listened with compassion and formulated a wellness plan according to my specific issues. With acupuncture, a new diet and herbal supplements I was able to conceive without any assistance from Western Medicine (fertility drugs). Through each step of my fertility journey, Annabelle tailor-made the treatments to fit my changing needs. She is a compassionate care-giver and taught me a lot about herbal remedies. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience I had being treated by Annabelle. At the age of 41, I am 37 weeks pregnant and believe acupuncture/herbs and Annabelle were instrumental in accomplishing this amazing goal."
