Nick graduated from Texas Health and Science University in Austin, TX with a master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. There he was trained in several different healing modalities including acupuncture and chinese herbal medicine. He is currently licensed to practice acupuncture in both Washington and Texas.
While still in school, Nick first became interested in community acupuncture when he saw patients going without much needed treatment because they couldn’t afford even the reduced rates to see student interns. He is ecstatic and grateful to be involved with Fremont Community Acupuncture, and he is committed to bringing the incredible physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of acupuncture to as many people as possible.
Outside the clinic, Nick’s interests include sci-fi/fantasy literature and film, alchemy, and very excellent hats.
Lyndsey's experiences have resulted in a deep desire to be able to help alleviate bodily frustrations, discomforts, and pain in others, from the mildest of cases to the most complex and challenging.
She began her education in Animal Science in Arkansas to become a veterinarian, studied photography abroad in London and completed her B.A. in Art History at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2004. In 2008 Lyndsey began her education for Acupuncture at Bastyr University. After her mother's death in 2011 due to stage IV melanoma, she completed her M.S. in Acupuncture in 2012 and finished her Certificate in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the end of 2014.
Lyndsey is focused on holistic care. With a practical approach and a great deal of knowledge of the human body, she clearly and compassionately communicates with patients in order to effectively treat the whole person. Her treatments focus not only on physical pain management but also on each person’s emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Lyndsey feels honored to work as a support in treating emotional trauma with acupuncture as well as working with pain and complex cases. When she is not providing community acupuncture in the Seattle area she can happily be found snuggling with her once feral cat, or slipping into the wonders of nature outside.
