ABOUT

DR. CHIN

 

I grew up in Seattle.  I absolutely love the Pacific Northwest and cannot imagine living anywhere else.  I am so grateful for the beautiful, nature landscapes and the rich array of coffee. 

 

I have always been passionate about helping others and those in my community. My father is a physician and the path of medicine was a natural choice for me.  I wanted to be able to make an impactful change in a person’s life and gravitated towards helping people attain their best health.  I was first introduced to acupuncture when I was 12 years old.  I was rear ended and incurred neck and lower back pain. It was only when I tried acupuncture that I received long-term relief, which is when my interest in East Asian medicine was sparked.

I respect all types of medicines and practitioners.  I firmly believe in an integrative health care approach, because each branch of medicine has its own limitation, but together they can supplement each other and provide a stronger, holistic treatment.  The most important thing to me is my patient's well being.
