Tyler Florence, L.Ac.

Holistic Healing Professional 

I'm Tyler Florence, and I founded Gorge Acupuncture in 2022 after relocating to the Columbia River Gorge. I came to be an acupuncturist after suffering for years with a chronic disease. After finding such success in healing myself through acupuncture, I decided to study alternative methods of healing.

Traditional Chinese Medicine quickly became a passion, which I studied for many years before deciding to relocate to the Gorge to share my knowledge with my new community. I specialize in herbal medicine, acupuncture for sports injuries, addiction, and mental health. I look forward to meeting you and treating you with care, professionalism and a personalized approach. 


I am a licensed acupuncturist, L.Ac. & MSTCM, and herbalist, board certified by the state of Oregon and the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Acupuncture and herbal medicine have had a profound effect on my life, and have helped to propel me through some of the most challenging times.

After working in the field of health supplements and western herbs, I wanted the ability to provide more care to the members of my community. It is for this reason I chose to earn my Master's degree in traditional Chinese medicine from The Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, California. After graduating in 2016, I opened my first practice. Pain management, addiction, anxiety, and overall recovery from any health challenges are my passion and I'm honored to help provide that.


 I grew up in a small town in Rhode Island. Skateboarding, fishing, and living life in the outdoors have been passions of mine since childhood. I now live here in the Gorge for exactly these reasons. Surrounded by forests, rivers, and mountains is where I feel completely at home, and I'm so happy to be a member of this community. 

I begin each session with a comprehensive patient review, designed to understand your unique health patterns and behavior. Then, I create individualized treatment methods tailor-made for you. I closely track the results, and modify each treatment as necessary. I look forward to meeting you and helping you with your healing process!
