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 specialize in the treatment of chronic pain & pain management, anxiety & depression, and women’s health.

In addition to my private practice, I also regularly treat the residents of Bayview Retirement Facility, located in Queen Anne.

I apply the five modalities of Chinese medicine—acupuncture, Chinese herbs, massage (tui na), dietary suggestions, and exercise (qi gong)—and address both symptoms and root causes.  In addition, I make suggestions of ways to live a healthier, more balanced life.

I am currently an in-network provider for the following insurance companies: Aetna, Uniform, First Choice, Premera Blue Cross, Cigna, and others. Please see my Web page for payment options and details.
