Suzanne Chi, MSOM, LAc
Suzanne’s interest in the moving body began with her experience as a gymnast and dancer, and as a consequence, learning how to deal with injuries as such. After graduating from Muhlenberg College with her B.A. in Dance, her dance career was moderately side-tracked by injury. It was during this rehab experience that she realized she wanted to help other active people in their healing processes, and worked for several years in a physical therapy clinic helping to teach patients their home exercise program. She felt a strong affinity towards the modalities and philosophy of Chinese medicine, but continued to follow her passion for musculoskeletal injury rehab.
She received her Master's in Oriental Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, and went on to complete an apprenticeship in acupuncture for sports medicine. She is also adjunct clinical faculty at the National University of Natural Medicine. Clinically, she is interested in addressing muscle and joint pain, migraines, hormone and sleep issues that impact daily life.
Outside the clinic, she continues to enjoy dancing, exploring the Pacific Northwest, and sewing. Her husband and she are kept busy with their golden retriever and two cats.
