Looking 5-15 years younger sounds great, doesn’t it? Let’s see what that involves…
First of all, let’s examine what happens to the skin as we age: Over time, the structure of our collagen begins to break down, skin hydration decreases, and muscle tone weakens. The combination of these factors decreases the elasticity of the skin, allowing gravity to deeply impact us to cause sagging and wrinkling of the skin. This muscle tone loss happens over time, so repeated facial expressions start to hold imprints. The effects are increased lines, wrinkles and folds, loose saggy tissue and an inability to appear calm, relaxed and healthy.
Discovering parallels between the ancient and modern understanding of the human body can add depth to discussion. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are based on ancient principles of nature. The energy, qi, yin and yang discussed in this medicine can be explored through modern sciences such as biology and physics.

I battled chronic migraines starting at age 17. After college, they took over my life. As a skeptical physicist, I did not explore any “alternative” methods until I ran out of medical options. My hard working doctors tried every medication and experimental treatment possible without success. I had given up hope until my first acupuncture treatment. It changed my life.
For 5 months after that, I traveled throughout Southeast Asia discussing medical systems with people from around the world. Every culture has a unique approach to health. We are so lucky to have access to finest insights of medical science as well as sacred teachings of ancient cultures. Finally, I moved back to Seattle and opened Health Discovery Acupuncture clinic. Now I have the pleasure of utilizing what I have learned, while continuously gaining new insights, to help others optimize their health.
Lillian Lee, PhD
Dr. Lillian Lee is a lifelong student of the art of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Her passion was first ignited by her mother who introduced her daughter to the power of the needles when she was just five years old. Lillian carried her interest in TCM with her to the United States, where it lingered in the back of her mind while she pursued a more traditional course through American academics.
She graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Biology, and within a year, she began Doctorate studies at her alma mater in pharmicology/Toxicology. Her graduate work at Davis produced a number of published papers, finally culminating in a PhD.
Outside of her practice, Dr. Lee is endlessly busy. She loves to read and learn, often juggling three or four books at a time on her Ipad while running on the treadmill. She has a four and a half year-old son named Desmond who keeps her on her toes. He’s definitely a handful, but he’s a wonderful thing to come back to after a long day in the clinic!!!!
The first time I worked with [Health Discovery Acupuncture] I felt such a surge of energy freely flowing through my legs in a circular pattern - I had to look down to see if I had crossed my legs (I had not - but the energy seemed to be flowing in an infinity sign!).
The office is clean and neat with a homey, comforting feel. The tea is amazing. Everyone in the office is kind and welcoming.
[They] never seemed rush, flustered, or hurried. She was always calm and collected, and took the time to talk and observe before embarking on each treatment.
One of the most common questions we hear from concerned potential patients is “Do acupuncture needles hurt?”. Typically, patients barely notice the insertion of most of the needles. Many needles don’t hurt at all. However, there are nerve receptors at the skin and just below the skin so, occasionally, about one in 20 needle insertions,
As the seasons change, so do your nutritional needs. In Chinese medicine, Autumn is the season of the Metal element.

Minerals act as catalysts for many biological reactions and are necessary for the transmission of messages and the uptake of essential nutrients. Most minerals are considered “essential”, meaning that our body does not produce them naturally. We can only obtain essential nutrients from external sources, mainly from a healthy, balanced diet.
