To get the usual boring stuff out of the way first, I graduated from Bastyr University with a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine back in 2006, and am board certified in oriental medicine by the NCCAOM (National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine).
I moved from Seattle in 2015, where I had an active and thriving acupuncture clinic (Grassroots Acupuncture) in the Fremont neighborhood. After a couple of years spent working at an awesome local winery, I finally reached the point where I missed working with patients and practicing acupuncture too much to let it go any longer. In addition to which, I have the incredible opportunity to share space with my father, Mark Hanson, MD, who is an amazing physician and has always been the one I go to when I or my patients have questions.
Because I understand exactly how easy it is to get wrapped up in the busyness and stress of day to day life, I love being able to offer a quiet space where people can come to take care of themselves, kick their feet up (literally) and relax. I think this kind of self care is something that too many people are missing from their lives, and I love that I get to support it with what I do. That being said, my first goal will always be to make sure that – whatever we are working on – you start feeling better, and soon.
