Meet Our University District Acupuncturists
In Washington, acupuncturists are classified as “East Asian Medicine Practitioners.” Our practitioners use the tools of Chinese Medicine to design a customized treatment plan for each patient. This may include: acupuncture, breathing and relaxation techniques, bodywork and massage, cupping, hot/cold therapy or Qigong, plus dietary advice and Chinese herbs to support the patient’s healing.
Communication between practitioner and patient is essential to achieve the desired results from each course of treatment.
