About Dr. Reba
Reba is a naturopathic doctor and certified personal trainer specializing in women's health and musculoskeletal pain.
Dr. Akin practices by treating the whole person and the cause of disease, though her medical practice has two main areas of focus. The first of which is musculoskeletal pain. Using a functional movement assessment, nutrition, soft tissue therapies, corrective exercises, and strength training, she assists patients to move effectively, efficiently and with less pain. Her therapies work in conjunction with chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, and physical therapy.
In addition, Dr. Akin’s other great passion is women’s health. She diagnoses and treats all manner of women-specific health concerns including hormonal imbalance, fatigue, insomnia, thyroid disorders, PMS, menopause and digestive disorders.
When finding and treating the cause of a dysfunction she includes clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing, nutritional counseling, botanical medicine, bioidentical hormones, physical medicine, exercise and prescription medication as needed. In addition to her extensive clinical experience, she is a compassionate listener and caring individual, both important keys to her success.
Reba Akin is a graduate of the National College of Natural Medicine, and certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, Evidence Based Fitness Academy, and Functional Movement Systems. She completed the RCA-20 in 2017.
Dr. Akin lives in Portland with her husband and two children. She enjoys playing in the kitchen as well as the park. Her personal hobbies include cooking, travel, hiking, strength training and time with friends.
