The highest quality acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, and alternative medicine care. All practitioners are trained above and beyond state requirements. Our practitioners have experience in various modalities in addition to acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, such as therapeutic bodywork, essential oil medicine, and whole foods nutrition.

In the event that we are unequipped to handle any health issue you may have, we have a stellar referral base that includes both MD’s and ND’s, as well as Physical Therapists and Counselors. Needless to say, you are in excellent hands.We are thrilled to be the first clinic on the Eastside to provide group style acupuncture treatments.

Every person has a distinct path to optimal health and my intention is to facilitate and support you during your path. During your time at Synergy Wellness Center, I will spend time getting to know you and any specific complaints you may have to customize a personalized treatment plan while keeping in mind your personal wellness goals. It is my belief wellness is achieved by restoring balance and harmony within the body. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are beautiful and highly effective means in providing this caliber of holistic care. Being trained as an East Asian medicine practitioner along with my education as a naturopathic physician allows me to utilize many dynamic and distinct systems of medicine to approach healing in many facets.

My awareness of the subtle energetic body began soon after I took my first yoga class. Yoga plays a huge role in both my physical and spiritual health; and I feel it expresses the best parts of me. It also encouraged me to pursue this path of medicine, healing, and spiritual well-being.

Acupuncture | Pain Specialist | Pediatrics
My personal journey with acupuncture began because I had suffered from allergies and headaches since I was a child. I was told I would “outgrow” these symptoms, but did not as an adult. After receiving acupuncture and taking herbs for a few months I was symptom free. At that time, I was working in Physical Therapy and had many patients with chronic pain patterns that were not resolving. Because of my wonderful experience with Chinese Medicine, I began referring patients to acupuncture and many came back reporting significant relief.
This experience opened my eyes to the many benefits of the medicine. I now combine my knowledge in Western Medicine with Eastern philosophy to specialize in pain management. I treat athletic injuries, common tendonitis, but also fibromyalgia and chronic complicated pain conditions. I recognize everyone has a unique “story” and I will listen to help you unravel your areas of imbalance and provide the best care for your situation.
I’m also concerned about the growing number of illness in children and medications given to them at such a young age. That is why I am passionate about family practice and working with pediatrics and helping to educate parents on healthy alternatives. I incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine, cranial sacral therapy, Japanese Acupuncture (ion pumping cords) breath work, sound therapy, and gentle non-insertion needle techniques to provide the best results.
I look forward to helping you maintain your biggest asset, your health and help assist you on your healing journey. I’m honored to be part of a wonderful and well-rounded team of healers at Synergy Wellness.

Acupuncture | Family Health | Herbal Medicine
My roots of being an East Asian Medical Practitioner, EAMP, lie in my previous profession of organic and biodynamic farming. For ten years my livelihood revolved around working with the land and its rhythms, bringing me a profound sense of well-being and health. Farming opened my eyes, and heart, to the importance of working with natural rhythms. East Asian Medicine helps me to bring this understanding into the clinic. By aligning ourselves to the ebb and flows of nature we can maintain health. My goal is to help you do just that.
I have found that East Asian Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, exercise, nutrition, and Qi gong) provides a map for working holistically with almost every ailment of the human body. Two of my particular areas of interest are anxiety/depression and fertility.
We live in an incredibly stressful world. We are constantly stimulated and barraged with information. Sometimes stress wins, and our problems nest inside of us causing chronic anxiety and depression. Since this is the world we live in, we have to find ways to manage these stressors so that we are not overcome. Acupuncture, and Chinese Medicine, is extremely effective at doing this. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that suggests acupuncture consistently decreases stress hormones, increases relaxation hormones, and helps recalibrate the parts of our brain that are affected by stress. These are the same hormones and parts of the brain that most medications dealing with anxiety and depression are trying to effect. Acupuncture gets your body to do it for you.
I have chosen to specialize in fertility because I am a father and am in love with my family. Acupuncture, herbs, and our other tools are great ways to support fertility for both women and men. We are also able to help with many of the problems that pregnancy poses such as; gestational diabetes, hypertension, pain, stress, stressed partners, insomnia, and a slew of other issues.
In my free time I try to get my hands in the earth as much as possible. I grow medicinal herbs, vegetables, fruits, and am learning about our native North West apothecary that exists all around us. If you ever want to talk shop, this is my favorite subject.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
