Ancient Wisdom – Modern Healing

Treatment Planning Tool

Welcome to Village Medicine

 Balance & Self Healing

Modern medicine didn’t discover health and wellbeing. Some trusted treatments have stood the test of time. Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years, making it one of the oldest healing therapies still in use.

The list of purported benefits is long, and so is the list of ailments it’s been used to treat. Is acupuncture a cure-all treatment? No, not exactly. Acupuncture is believed to support your body’s natural ability to find balance and heal itself.

Village Medicine provides acupuncture in Seattle for anyone looking to infuse their healing journey with wisdom gathered and refined over millennia.

What to Expect

The Treatment Process


First and foremost, relax. Our fully-certified providers know what they’re doing and can fine tune the treatment to support your needs and goals.


Your provider will gently insert tiny needles into key areas that are believed to stimulate the body to release chemicals and hormones into the muscles, spinal cord and brain. It might also help activate your immune system. An acupuncture session usually lasts 25 to 40 minutes.


For lasting relief, it’s important to schedule acupuncture treatments regularly, ideally every 3 to 4 days. It’s also a good idea to avoid alcohol, caffeine, junk food, and smoking.
