Top Doctors 2012 Seattle Metropolitan: Women’s health
Lindsey Lawson specializes in acupuncture for women’s health issues including fertility, pregnancy and post-partum care. Other specialties include pain and musculoskeletal issues, injury from car accidents, endocrine imbalances and trauma. She uses a blend of East Asian medicine, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Oriental bodywork, Infrared and Cold laser therapy, and Shamanic healing. Kim Lewis (see bio below) co-treats with her, as well as seeing patients herself.
Treatments focus both on relieving symptoms, as well as healing illness from its root. She believes that Eastern medicine and Western medicine are looking at the same problem from two different angles, and are invaluable when used together to create a more complete picture. She seeks to educate her patients on ways to live a harmonious life through diet, exercise, and small changes. The ultimate goal is to prevent illness.

More about Lindsey
Her education in Natural Medicine began at an early age with a love of nature, medicinal plants, and food. Study of the body continued in high school and college through numerous sports, both individual and team. A torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) in her knee, was followed by 3 reconstructive surgeries through age 19. The experience spurred her to pursue a career in alternative medicine at Bastyr University and prompted her move to Seattle from the Buffalo, NY area.
Lindsey is dedicated to community and is a co-owner of Glow. Lindsey’s other passions include cooking and functional food, cross training, traveling, gardening, reading, writing, art, and spending time with her son and husband in their Seattle home.
Glowing Praise…”My dizziness, pain and headache were gone after your treatment. You are a Goddess!” – Lorrie, age 56, Seattle
“I have pictures of my eggs prior to acupuncture treatment. They were malformed and looked old. After my acupuncture treatments with Lindsey, they were perfect!! The only thing I had done differently was have acupuncture. After IVF, I was blessed with a beautiful baby boy. Thank you!” -Jen, age 41, Seattle
Kim Lewis, Acupuncture Associate
I believe that everybody is responsible for taking an active role in their wellness and I am here to help guide and support them as they discover what real health feels like. It is a great honor to assist my patients in their journey and a tremendous joy when they thrive.
My goal is to help you regain your connection to yourself, feel your best and move toward being your complete and authentic self. By feeling better physically, you then have more space and ease to tend to all aspects of your life. I use all of my various training to address the multiple layers that are in each of us; giving you that extra nudge when you need it to keep moving forward.
In my own rejuvenation time, I love spending time with my wonderful husband and our enthusiastic dogs out in nature. My other passion is quilting. I can lose hours at a time creating baby quilts, wall hangings and other fabulous fabric confections, reveling in the textures colors and designs of this age-old skill.” -Kim Lewis
