Bio

     Lindsey Perkins is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Washington and Missouri and is board certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She graduated from Bastyr University with a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

     During her time at Bastyr, Lindsey took a focus on women’s health that included fertility, obstetrics, and menopause. She also completed clinical shifts at Harborview Medical Center that focused on Chronic Fatigue Clinic, Madison Clinic treating HIV/AIDS patients and International Clinic treating immigrants and refugees from around the world. She collaborated with naturopathic doctors on the Immune Wellness Center shift at Bastyr that provides care primarily to HIV/AIDS patients.

     She is a member of the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association and has worked at Evergreen Treatment Services in Seattle providing acupuncture to patients undergoing recovery from drug addiction. The same protocol taught, can be used to help quit other addictions such as smoking and has been shown to help veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

     During her studies, she was able to travel to China and learn from two of the top Traditional Chinese Medicine Universities. In Chengdu, she was able to follow doctors at the inpatient and outpatients wards in the hospital. She focused primarily on women’s health that included fertility and pediatrics. In Shanghai, she focused her studies on traumatology and internal medicine. That experience was most valuable and she was able to bring what she learned in China and integrate it into her own practice.

     Lindsey believes in the body’s ability to heal itself by facilitating acupuncture, herbs, cupping, moxabustion, and nutrition. Using eastern and western medicine, helps provide integrative care for patients in order to reach their maximum effect for healing.
