Caring Touch, Discerning Mind

Each person's body is unique, including the conditions of the channels recognized by Chinese Medicine. These channels conduct and convey information and substance, participate in physiology and pathology, and integrate our bodies into connected wholes. By examining the channels themselves using palpation (investigative touch), the roots of each individual's condition can be more precisely diagnosed.

I fractured my patella and after I saw doctors for a necessary surgery David helped the pain, inflammation, and local numbness subside quickly and has helped my knee tolerate the forced flexion I’ve had to do post-surgery. I truly couldn’t imagine where I’d be without him being on my treatment team. He is one of the most thorough, sensitive, and attentive practitioners I’ve met and his method of channel reading allows him to access roots of issues rather than getting tangled in webs of symptoms. He is honest and trustworthy, and I couldn’t recommend his work more highly.

David has the magic touch. I went to David because of my tennis elbow. He was so thoughtful, so thorough, and it only took a few appointments to take care of my issue. We are now working on a chronic pain issue that I’ve been dealing with for the last three years, and with just a few sessions I’m already off my medication. I don’t know what I would do without him.

I had been dealing with an over-active bladder for two years. The worry and aggravation made me miserable. Then, something extraordinary happened! David treated my condition using acupuncture, and, amazingly, the problem disappeared. Frankly, it feels like a miracle occurred. I am so grateful to David for his knowledge, expertise and uncommon compassion. He has contributed, hugely, to the quality of my life. Thank you, David.

I’ve experienced consistent great results from getting treatments from David. Treating me while I was ill with the flu, having numbness in my hand and shoulder, with tuina to help me be in good shape for martial art events, David has always been able to treat the problems accurately year after year, that’s why I keep going back to him. He’s my go-to for information, treatment, and topical herbs.

About Me


MY NAME IS david

I graduated from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in August 2014 with a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM), after which I worked in Seattle both as a private practitioner and a community style acupuncturist until the summer of 2015. I then moved to Taiwan and spent two years learning Mandarin so that in September and October of 2017 I could intern with two Chinese Medicine physicians in Beijing. I'm now back in area where I grew up to share my medicine with those in need.
