Lyndsey Golden, E.A.M.P., is an NCCAOM Diplomat of Acupuncture
Her treatments focus on acute and chronic pain management and emotional wellness.
A well-rounded individual, with interests in veterinary medicine and a degree in art history, it was Lyndsey’s own experience with the treatment of an injury and facing family illness that led her to acquire an advanced degree in acupuncture from Bastyr. After a horse landed on her in 2000, she was introduced to acupuncture for successful pain mitigation. Her personal loss of loved ones have provided hard learned lessons in human compassion and fuel her ongoing drive to find solutions for seemingly “unsolvable” wellness issues. She believes that aside from injury, the body can run into pathological movement patterns and stagnations, telling that it needs change. Lyndsey has learned as a patient and as an acupuncturist that acupuncture can benefit a myriad of issues. Her skills are both deeply accurate and practical as well as intuitive. Through advanced preceptorship and communal application her skill set and curiosity has grown deeply with a love for acupuncture and a following from those she’s been lucky enough to treat.
“I know I am doing the right thing in the world, when more people to get to land in exactly who they are… under less duress mentally and physically. Then they can face their own lives better equipped to construct a world, in which we all suffer less, and create more authenticity from a deeper sense of being”
