More about erin
Erin’s first introduction to acupuncture started at the age of 17 for the treatment of debilitating menstrual cramps. During these first sessions she realized the great power of acupuncture and herbal medicine. These initial treatments not only helped to manage her pain but they also calmed her mind, improved her energy and mood, and focused her attention.
Erin moved from Minnesota to Seattle in 1999 and eventually found her path to acupuncture. While in school, Erin completed clinical rotations at Harborview Hospital in the Chronic Fatigue 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 years there she treated a wide range of complaints. These complaints include autoimmune diseases, neurological conditions, migraines, digestive complaints, pain management, female health, and psycho-emotional disorders, to name a few.
Erin is now focused completely on giving high quality care in her own practice at Blue Peacock Acupuncture. Her main focus of care is pain management, digestive complaints, fatigue, and stress relief.
Outside of her love for East Asian Medicine, Erin is also an animal lover to her core. She has spent volunteer time at Pasado’s Safe Haven farm animal sanctuary, the Woodland Park Zoo, and has found homes for four foster dogs. She has also enjoyed weekly horseback riding lessons at Graystone Stables.
