Dr. Kacy Borba Spann, ND, L.Ac


dr. kacy l. Borba spann, of Quercus Natural Health, is a Naturopathic Doctor and Licensed Acupuncturist practicing adjunctive healthcare in Portland, Oregon at Pohala Clinic in the Brentwood-Darlingtion Neighborhood and Portland Family Health in the Woodstock neighborhood. Adjunctive care means that dr. kacy does not practice primary care.

dr. kacy hails from a big family in a small "cow-town" on the central coast of California where live oaks abound. She studied Community Healthcare at UC Santa Cruz — a major she designed — focusing on social inequities in healthcare and biomedical sciences. A few years later dr. kacy journeyed to Portland, OR for graduate school at the National College of Natural Medicine. There she spent time growing, changing, learning, healing and connecting with Naturopathic and Chinese medicine.

She thinks that being bipedal is the coolest and she likes to be in motion — whether walking, skateboarding, dancing, or hula hooping. dr. kacy loves to be in nature with her bare feet on the earth near bodies of moving water. When she is with the ocean tides on a full moon she feels most connected to our creator. She strives to find what is to love in each soul she meets!

dr. kacy is dedicated to helping you and your loved ones achieve optimal health and wellness with collaborative care that honors “your body, your choice.”

She is a true generalist and loves treating all ages and a variety of conditions. She is creative, flexible and grounded in her approach to care and uses many modalities, including: classical Chinese acupuncture, non-insertive Japanese acupuncture for pediatric patients, spinal manipulations, fire and bleeding cupping, post-surgical recovery and scar therapy, prolotherapy, bodywork (including cranio-sacral & myofascial release), IM injections and naso-specifics. To aid in diagnosis and treatment, dr. kacy utilizes thorough physical exams, basic and specialty lab work, and imaging as necessary. She also makes nutritional and lifestyle recommendations, partnering with you to support and strengthen your self-care practices.

dr. kacy prefers her role as practitioner to be a partnership and respects that healing is a journey with many paths — a journey without judgement, opting for open honesty over dogmatic doctoring. Many of her patients have admitted that she is the first doctor they actually look forward to seeing!
