Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine

Class of 2011

East-Asian medicine is a clinical approach to health care that has been refined and honed over thousands of years. For most of that time the focus of its transmission has been the clinic, where knowledge grows organically out of experience as master practitioners pass on what they know to apprentices. We believe that a modern acupuncture program still must be grounded in the clinic.  Read a Message from the Directors

I've spent the past decade studying pathways to whole body health, from acupuncture and herbs to meditation and yoga. I am a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM). I am also a certified teacher of Hatha and Kundalini yoga. I completed yoga teacher training with Aadil Palkhivala of Purna Yoga and 3HO through Yoga West in Vancouver, B.C. I have completed DONA-approved training as a Birth and Postpartum Doula, as well as pre and postnatal yoga teacher training with Colette Crawford at Seattle Holistic Center. In addition, I am NADA certified to treat addiction with acupuncture.

My Philosophy:


My practice is dedicated to supporting whole body health in the lives of my patients. I think of health as a constant process. It's about balancing all the components of the self - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual - through a wide variety of means. Even the smallest change can make a big difference. I view myself as a partner with my patients, combining my training with their innate knowledge of what they need. I draw on my intuition and a wide range of healing modalities to provide fresh approaches that resonate and lead to substantive improvements in health, happiness, and well-being. These modalities include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tuina massage, nutrition and lifestyle counseling, and more. I am happy to be able to offer coverage under most insurance plans, as well as a sliding scale for those in need.
