EAST ASIAN MEDICINE PRACTITIONER
Erin was graduated from Bastyr University in 2007 with the degree of Master of Science in Acupuncture. While in school, Erin completed clinical rotations at Harborview Hospital in the Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia Clinic, the International Clinic, and in the HIV Clinic. She also completed internships at the Caroline Downs Family Medical Center, Highpoint Medical Clinic, and Bastyr Center for Natural Health.
Immediately upon graduating, Erin was invited to join the practice of Candace Burnikel at Dancing Turtle Acupuncture. Throughout her 4 years of working at this flourishing clinic, she treated a wide range of complaints including autoimmune diseases, neurological conditions, migraines, digestive complaints, pain management, female health, and psycho-emotional disorders, to name a few. She is very grateful to have had 4 years of substantial clinic work directly after graduating which prepared her for giving high quality care for over 10 years in her own practice at Blue Peacock Acupuncture.
Erin provides gentle and effective acupuncture treatments with a focus on pain management, headaches, digestion complaints, fatigue, and stress/anxiety issues. Erin is committed to ongoing continuing education in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Nutrition to enhance her knowledge and remain up to date with new and emerging information.
A little more about Erin:
Outside of her love for East Asian Medicine, Erin has a passion for travel, especially to wildlife destinations with her sister. She has been charged by an elephant while on foot in South Africa, she's walked and canoed through the amazing wonders of the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador, visited rescued Elephants in the Khao Sok National Park in Thailand and kayaked in the beautiful HaLong Bay, Vietnam. Her most recent travels were to Uganda to visit the rare and wonderful wild mountain gorillas of Bwindi Impentatrable Forest!
Erin is an animal lover to her core. She has spent volunteer time at Pasado’s Safe Haven farm animal sanctuary, Heartwood Haven farm animal sanctuary, the Woodland Park Zoo, and has found homes for four foster dogs through Ginger's Death Row Dogs. Erin is currently volunteering as a guide for Wolf Haven International, a sanctuary for captive wolves and wolfdogs. She lives with her 16 year old Lhasa Apso, and a bonded pair of sweet little kitties.
