Angie W. Yin, MSAOM, LAc., & OMD. was born and raised in a family of medical doctors in Chengdu, China. In her childhood, she spent most of her daycare time at her father’s private integrative clinic where she was exposed to the nature of both Western medicine and Chinese herbal remedy practice. Whenever she got sick as a child, Angie was healed by taking prescriptions from her father, a third generation MD in China. Growing up in such a profound family background in medicine has later inspired her desire of becoming an acupuncturist and Chinese herbology practitioner.
Angie moved to the U.S. in her teenage years. She earned her BA from the University of Washington where she studied Business Administration and Fine Art in oil painting and her dual Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University. She relates her expertise and sets of skills in fine art painting with her acupuncture profession as she considers that both share aesthetic quality, manual dexterity, stability and concentration in terms of practice. Angie is fluent in English, Mandarin and Sichuanese (Chinese dialect). She is very open and respectful to the essence of diverse cultures as her patient population comes from a variety of ethnicities.
