Lindsey Dority, LAc

Describe a treatment with you? 
A treatment with me is relaxing, refreshing, and healing.  I start by asking questions about the different body systems.  Along with feeling the pulses on the inner wrists and looking at the tongue, I get a bigger picture of the acupuncture points needed to help the body work on healing itself.  Often times patients report to me they feel like they slipped away on a 'mini-vacation' or had their 'reset' button pushed. 

Favorite thing about your job? 
Being an acupuncturist honestly doesn't feel like a job!  I love sharing the simplicity and effectiveness of acupuncture with others.  I love helping people feel better.  Also, introducing acupuncture and Chinese medicine to folks who thought most of their options were gone is very fulfilling.  

Your ideal client? 
I love working with all types of people.  This question is always a hard one for me!  Working with mamas who are on the cusp of bringing a new life into the world is very exciting and fun.  I also enjoy working with people who are seeking help for their own mental health.  I also really enjoy working with the geriatric community.

Favorite quote? 
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” 
― Anaïs Nin
