Studio Sapaan Portland

"Sapaan" means BRIDGE in the Thai language.

This is the Portland home of Beth Griffing Russell, LAc, MAcOM, Dipl.OM.

At Studio Sapaan, I operate in the territory that links health and beauty, for your most powerful expression of being.

Working with you, I use techniques that bridge Eastern facial renewal practices with Western understanding of biomechanics and evidence based medicine.

I will help you enter a state of health and relaxation where you can more easily access your 'flow,' whether it be creative, physical, analytical, or task-based. I utilize advanced training in orthopedic acupuncture, Thai and Japanese bodywork, and non-needling Chinese medicine techniques to treat a wide range of physical conditions. I find the connections throughout your body that can build greater resilience physically and holistically. My goal is nothing short of helping manifest your potential, while beautifying and strengthening your body and spirit. 

Most sessions at Studio Sapaan are based around facial renewal, but this necessarily involves treatment of the entire body for constitutional support. This means that each treatment also increases the efficiency and health of the body at its baseline function. Modalities of treatment include: 

Jade Stone and Thai Herb Facial Renewal | Acupuncture | Acupressure | Electroacupuncture | Teishin | Shiatsu | Thai Traditional Massage | Facial Gua Sha | Facial Cupping | Connective Tissue Massage | Steamed Herbal Compress | Body Cupping | Body Gua Sha | Breathwork | Qigong | Chinese Herbal Medicine

I require pre-payment for single visits, but offer memberships for current clients to facilitate scheduling. I do not require anyone to purchase a membership, but the option will be discussed on the first visit to tailor our time together for maximum effect. In some cases, only a few treatments may be needed for rapid change to occur. In other cases, a series of several months may be necessary to create the deep-seated change required. 

Studio Sapaan is a safe space. All are welcome here. I am happy to treat non-English speakers who provide their own translator. I am not equipped to transfer from assisted mobility devices to the treatment table, but I can treat people in their mobility devices in my ADA facility. 

You may contact me with any questions at or via my Contact Form.

Studio Sapaan is located within Wildfire Family Clinic in inner Southeast Portland.
