More about Lindsey

Her education in Natural Medicine began at an early age with a love of nature, medicinal plants, and food. Study of the body continued in high school and college through numerous sports, both individual and team. A torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in her knee, was followed by 3 reconstructive surgeries through age 19. The experience spurred her to pursue a career in alternative medicine at Bastyr University and prompted her move to Seattle from the Buffalo, NY area.

Lindsey is dedicated to community and owner of Glow.  Lindsey’s other passions include cooking and functional food, cross training, traveling, gardening, reading, writing, art, and spending time with her son and husband in their Seattle home.

I wasn’t sure having a baby naturally was possible for me at 40 and with a low AMH. I am so glad I followed you advice. I felt great after acupuncture and the diet changes I made made a difference too. My pregnancy symptoms were better after acupuncture and my daughter is the greatest gift!  Joanna 

Acupuncture during my IVF cycle helped me so much! I think the cold laser made a huge difference too. I had more follicles that were better quality than during my first retrieval. I went from 1 embryo to 5! Thank you so much. Lisa

I had no idea that birth would wreck my body the way it did. I was so glad to have your postpartum program to fall back on and for the acupuncture and herbal support I received.  Laura
