Dr. Kai Herman is co-owner of FoRM Health in Portland, Oregon and is the Medical Director of the Functional Medicine and Aesthetic divisions within the clinic. Within her practice, she specializes in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapies, hormone health, natural skin rejuvenation, plant-based medicine, and IV therapy. She is dedicated to helping her patients find meaningful improvements in health while achieving aesthetic goals. She believes in a holistic approach to beauty and aging well.
Dr. Kai started her career working as a mental health counselor in the Bay Area. This experience opened her mind to the connection between physical, emotional, and mental well-being. After working as a counselor, she transitioned to the fitness and wellness industry, earning certifications in Pilates, personal training, nutritional therapy, and Barre3Ⓡ, and spent over six years helping clients optimize their health through exercise and nutrition.
Inspired by her time in the fitness industry and wanting to learn as much as possible about health, she pursued a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland. After earning her degree, she completed a one-year residency with a focus on musculoskeletal medicine and injection procedures such as PRP therapies.
Prior to earning a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Kai graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara, earning a BA in Psychology, with Honors and research credentials.
When she isn’t working, Dr. Herman can usually be found spending time with her husband, two children, and French Bulldog, Balzac. When she finds time for herself, she loves fitness with friends and learning new sports – recently taking up golf and tennis. Dr. Herman originally hails from the Bay Area, but has lived in Portland since 2004.
