“The healing starts when Ben enters the room. He is totally focused on his patient, carefully listens to their history, and is fully engaged in the healing.He poses thoughtful questions to clarify all facets of the medical problem. Ben truly understands the two thousand year old, Chinese medicine. He has several years of advanced training as well as many years of practical experience. If you have any doubts about the effectiveness of acupuncture in today’s world, you will leave Ben’s office the first time a believer in acupuncture because of the wonderful results you will receive. Ben has been a blessing to me.”

“I have been a body-worker and pilates instructor for 13 years and over the course of my numerous injuries and rehabilitations (car-accidents, ballet injuries, etc), I have always been impressed time-and-time again by how well acupuncture can heal the body. Over all of these years and living in many cities, I’ve been to many different acupuncturists and also witnessed the difference skill on many levels.

I recently began seeing Ben and once again am so appreciative of how wonderful acupuncture is, especially when done with a high level of education and skill as well as compassion and presence. After my session I felt my whole body and mental state relax into ease and my physical pain dropped dramatically. I recommend him highly.”

“Ben is amazing at what he does, which is so much more than acupuncture. He is truly a healer, and we have no hesitation sending all of our patients to him for ANY ailment they are dealing with. He is gentle enough for the most anxious person, and finds a way to create space for people to truly move into themselves! Thank you Ben!”

“Ben is amazing! I have never had acupuncture or any type of alternative medicine before, but I felt completely at ease with him. His bedside manner and professionalism is remarkable. I typically do not feel comfortable with male healthcare professionals, but with him I did. Although I was hesitant about acupuncture and cupping, I have to say I feel overall, completely relaxed after seeing him. My headache is gone along with my neck pain/tightness. I highly recommend Ben for anyone who has any sort of aches and pain. Thank you Ben for your amazing care!”

-MB, Seattle Wa



“Ben is the best acupuncturist I’ve ever had! His warm jovial personality makes you feel welcome and relaxed. He is extremely professional and it’s a pleasure to work with him. Great for the LGBT community, he is sensitive and passionate about helping everyone. I’m a massage therapist and require regular maintenance, he does the trick every time! I have an aversion to needles but Ben will put you at ease and help correct the imbalances in your body. If you’ve never had acupuncture, book with him immediately! You won’t be disappointed.”

-NA, Seattle Wa



“I’m so happy I’ve found Ben!
I do bodywork and the impacts of my work often manifest in my shoulders and back. Since I’ve been seeing Ben my back and shoulder tension has greatly subsided and I’ve felt an ease in my stress level!

I have received acupuncture from a handful of therapists and often feel the work does not have lasting impact. But Ben’s work has felt quite impactful and I’ve noticed I relief from each session stays with me.

Ben’s approach is genuine and kind but he’s not afraid to push boundaries a bit… which I appreciate. He works specifically but also holistically, and often supports areas I didn’t even realize needed a boost. I leave feeling more balanced both physically and emotionally… and who doesn’t need that!

If you are looking for physical, emotional or psychological healing, go see Ben. You’ll be pleased!”

-KH, Seattle Wa



“I don’t have a lot of experience in acupuncture or cupping, but my experience with Ben was great!
I was very nervous because of my fear of needles and my horrible first experience with Acupunture 10 years ago, but Ben was able to help me feel very comfortable and relaxed. YAY! I am relieved and excited to find out I am able to enjoy acupuncture and cupping. I will be back hopefully for migraine treatment!
I recommend Ben especially if you are nervous or new to acupuncture he will ease all your worries!”

-KB, Seattle Wa



“Seeing Ben has been life changing, both physically and emotionally. He is a gifted and honest healer and a real cool person. The best I’ve ever seen in this field 🙂 Give him a chance to make your life better too!!”

SW, Seattle Wa



“Ben really is amazing! He has a great vibe and is completely genuine and intuative. I am still shocked by how quickly my pain gets relieved, and how calm my overall state of mind is after treatments. I also love being able to have so many symptoms (mentally and physically) treated at one time. I back up the other positive reviews on here, so go see Ben!”

-ES, Seattle Wa



“I initially came for acupuncture to treat my sprained ankle. I definitely got that, and so much more! Ben has not only helped me with my ankle, but also with greatly increasing my overall health and wellness.

The cupping parts of our sessions have alleviated a great deal of my neck tension in ways that massage has been unable to do. The acupuncture is painless, and gives me a renewed vitality. Also, with Ben’s custom blend of Chinese herbs, and advice on vitamins and supplements, I have felt refreshed and balanced. Ben has helped me develop a wellness regimen that gives me sustained energy all day long, followed by the best sleep I’ve had in years.

I highly recommend these services. Ben has a very caring and unpretentious attitude that makes for a comfortable, rewarding experience. I will definitely be keeping this as a part of my healthcare routine!”

-AI, Seattle Wa



“Oh My! Ben is so excellent

My poor neck and back was knotted up and stiff from my work as an internet firm owner – always on the computer. Adding to that my brutal workout and weightlifting regime

In fact it was so pronounced, I had been getting calls as an extra for the next season of “Walking Dead” – as one of the zombies heh! Well that’s done for now.

His work and skill is top notch. If Yelp is good for one thing, it is that i found him there. Go see him with full confidence. You definitely won’t regret it.

Thanks Ben very much!”

-PC, Seattle Wa



“I had only seen a very close friend of mine for acupuncture but moved away from that city a while back. My favorite part about the treatment was always the cupping. Ben takes it to another level by running the cups which basically feels like the deepest deep tissue massage I’ve ever had. It’s fantastic!
All of the tense muscles in my back and shoulders just let go and I had a bunch of new energy the next day after a really great sleep… finally!
Ben is very accommodating and has answers to all of my questions along with suggestions. He’s very easy to just have a conversation with which is great for me because I’m a questions kind of person and I like having conversations to learn more. I’ve met people who don’t like it when you ask questions or want to talk but Ben is not like that at all.
Very excited to have found him in my neighborhood!”

-JS, Seattle Wa



“I was delightfully surprised after my first acupuncture visit with Ben. I had never received acupuncture before and I honestly was quite nervous about it. The way in which Ben treated me was very warm and comforting. He allowed me to get over my own personal needle fears and try acupuncture. And I am so thankful that I did because it impacted my life in a very positive way. His treatments helped me remove my back pain and to finally be able to sleep fully through the night. I would highly recommend going to Seattle Acupuncture and Coaching for any of your personal health needs.”

“I had become quite frustrated over the years with western medicine and I was looking for an alternative. I heard good things about Seattle Acupuncture and Coaching from a friend and figured I would give it a try. It was the first time in many years where I felt truly taken care of by a healthcare practitioner. I love seeing Ben for Acupuncture and now I started doing Coaching with him as well and it is changing my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“It’s not every day that you come across a healer that truly embodies the qualities that I always envisioned a healer to have, especially in our current world where healthcare has become more about money and less about patient care. Ben is someone who I believe is approaching his patients from his heart because he interacts with me as an equal, not as a person with a certain disease. I have seen Ben for 4 months now, and acupuncture (with Chinese herbs) has become a regular routine for my health. “
GW, Seattle, Wa


I was unclear about the benefits of coaching when I first came in to Seattle Acupuncture and Coaching but I had the feeling that I needed to try it. Ben was gracious enough to sit with me and answer all of my questions about the benefits of coaching and how it could help me. And honestly, even during our first 4 sessions, I didn’t understand why coaching was so beneficial for my life. But Ben had told me in advance that this process is very rewarding and can take some time, just like when you first start going to the gym. All of sudden after our 6th session, I woke up feeling like a new person. It’s hard to describe the process, but I am so thankful for finding Ben and trying Coaching with him. Having my coaching session every week allows me time to fully express my life challenges, my personal thoughts and fears. I never get the feeling that I am being judged by Ben, I always feel like I am being met where I am, and now I have emotional support to give me the confidence to take steps that are changing my life. I feel like a new person. Anyone who doesn’t try coaching is missing out on something wonderful.
