I've been seeing Tristin for several years now and I have recommended her to so many people in my life, for a multitude of issues. For one - she seems to be a miracle worker on the fertility front. She has helped not just me, but my sister and more friends than I can count on my fingers - all with health issues or histories of miscarriages or years of infertility - carry out healthy pregnancies and beautiful, healthy babies. She has an amazing understanding of how the whole body works together and can tend to issues ranging from pain to temporary sickness to chronic illness. She also uses needles the most efficiently that I have ever experienced (meaning you won't be laying there with fifty needles - she knows where to put maybe four or five that are just as effective). I can't recommend her enough. ~Anya
I've had the privilege of working with Tristin for about 8 years. I originally went to see her after being recommended by a friend and have subsequently told basically anyone who will listen about how helpful and healing her work is. She has helped me with a number of issues but most notably, a difficult fertility journey and then 2 healthy pregnancies - one set of twins and a singleton. Her breadth of knowledge is remarkable and rare. I'm grateful for her curious and thoughtful approach. She is a force of sanity and balance in a health system that for me, can be overwhelming and anxiety producing. ~Hilary
I couldn't recommend Tristin enough. My first ever experience with acupuncture was with Tristin, and she put me at ease immediately. We spent the first portion of the visit talking, so she could get to know me in a holistic way. By the time we got to needles, they were practically a minor detail! I walk away from my visits with Tristin feeling calm and empowered. She truly has a gift. ~Karen
After earning my Master's degree in Chinese medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle in 2006, I open my practice in Bellevue and Redmond. Though my education was of the highest standards for Chinese medicine, and it prepared me technically for the practice of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, I felt that something was missing from my knowledge base.
After studying with several amazing teachers who provided more technical knowledge, in 2011 I finally found the mentor who would provide me the insights into Chinese medicine I was looking for that helped me become a more holistic practitioner. In the coming years, my mentor, Dr Yaron Seidman, and I would publish a book, Hunyuan Fertility: Conception, Babies & Miracles.
I have also studied childbirth education and birth support, clinical whole foods nutrition, the Eastern arts of breathwork and Qi Gong, and the Body Ready Method© for pregnancy and birth.
With this combination of tools, I create unique and individual support packages for each person I serve to help reach health and wellness goals.
Contact me today if you would like to incorporate a holistic approach into your health care, prenatal care, or birth preparation.
