Jon is a native Seattleite who grew up in a family that had a deep interest in holistic medicine. His exposure to a variety of healing systems kindled his initial fascination with the mind-body connection. Instead of just treating the body mechanically, he saw the effectiveness of treating the whole person.
After a successful career in labor relations, he was drawn back to holistic medicine in the form of Chinese medicine. Conventional medicine had been unable to help Jon with a digestive issue and while looking for solutions he found acupuncture. It was a fantastic experience since it resolved the problem and got him interested in the power of acupuncture.
In school, Jon discovered Chinese medicine’s effectiveness for a wide variety of health issues, including it’s powerful effect on the endocrine system. He was fascinated by this healing system and wanted to learn more, which lead him to a path of helping people create lives full of health and vibrancy.
Jon’s mission and purpose is to help his patients overcome everything from infertility, to hormonal imbalance, to PCOS, to musculoskeletal issues like back and neck pain, and more.
He sees true healing taking place when his patients are supported and strengthened so that their inner healing wisdom has all the resources it needs for full health and healing to take place.
