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.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are holistic by nature. To treat any condition with this medicine, one needs to look at the whole system. Chinese medicine acknowledges that emotion are not just chemicals in the brain but live in the body and are associated with organ functions. Our state of health is determined by a combination of physical, emotional and mental factors.
For example, stress can show up with symptoms of body tension, neck pain, headaches, stomachaches, loose stool or constipation, high blood pressure, insomnia, or many other possible symptoms. If we only treat the symptom without looking at possible causes or emotional correlations, the person may continuously recreate the condition.
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.
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.
