Brian Blinn, L.Ac., MTCM
Brian's endeavors with natural medicine began after nearly becoming paralyzed by severing a cervical nerve in his neck at the age of 13. To rehabilitate his spine, his family took him to a chiropractor where he underwent intensive therapy to regain normal mobility of his body. Several months later his spine was back to normal without invasive surgery or the use of medication. Though he didn't realize it at the time, that incident had a deep impact on his life and moved him in a direction he most likely would not have otherwise gone. Soon after his spinal recovery he acquired a deep interest in understanding the anatomy and physiology of the body, trying to piece together the way the spine worked and how the various muscles interacted with one another. He found it remarkable how everything seemed to work so easily, so effortlessly.
In his early twenties he endeavored upon the study of western botanicals, learning the pharmacological, medical and therapeutic properties of plants. Soon thereafter he began his pursuit of Ayurveda (the traditional medicine of India) and became an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor in Seattle, WA. In 2012 he turned his attention to the study of Chinese medicine, a tradition that encompasses tui na (massage), herbal medicine and acupuncture; completing his Masters of Chinese Medicine in 2016. Immediately thereafter Brian opened Red Pine Acupuncture, bringing to life a dream he has held for more than 10 years; providing a clinic dedicated to holistic medicine, empowering people to take back their health through the implementation of holisitc remedies
