What would you like 1st time clients to know?
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin and flexible, about the thickness of a cat whisker. Generally speaking, most people feel extremely relaxed after needles are inserted and often fall asleep on the treatment table.
An interesting fact about East Asian Medicine
East Asian medicine is highly individualized! For example, if 5 people with the common cold received acupuncture, the 5 people might all have different acupuncture points chosen as part of their treatment. It is the same with herbal formulas.
Tien has worked with many practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has found that a shared principle among them is that a harmonious and balanced environment promotes health. Our body is an intelligent system, able to send signals when it is out of balance. When we are aware of these signals, it is easier to maintain a harmonious and healthy life. Tien is dedicated to holistic well-being which encompasses the physical body and the mental and emotional dimensions of being.

Any advice for those new to Acupuncture?
For those who are not familiar with acupuncture, there is often nervousness about needles. Acupuncture needles are much smaller than typical, large, phlebotomy type of needles and are comparable to a strand of hair. The other thing I often hear is that people aren’t sure what conditions acupuncture is suited for. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of ailments: pain, insomnia, fatigue, digestive issues, stress, just to name a few. In addition to treating the physical, mental and emotional ailments can be addressed as well, such as anxiety and depression.
Acupuncture not only addresses temporary issues, but can be used long-term for maintaining health. Tien says his approach is to address whatever current condition patients present with, then work with them over time to promote overall optimal health.

What would you want a first time patient to know about acupuncture?
Don’t be nervous about needles. I use ultra-thin needles and a very gentle needling techniques. Acupuncture is rooted in the concept that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and I work with you to heal your body of injuries, illnesses and other blockages or deficiencies in order to return it to a state where it can function normally and do what it knows how to do.
What is something about acupuncture that most people don’t know?
Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine are really good at helping people work through emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. It is also amazing in the area of women’s health — for issues such as PMS or cycle regulation and postpartum support and recovery.
Dreamclinic Recognized as one of Washington’s Largest Women-Owned Businesses by Puget Sound Business Journal
From humble beginnings to making Washington’s Largest Women-Owned List
Seattle, WA, July 6, 2018. This spring (April 2018) Dreamclinic was recognized in the Puget Sound Business Journal (PSBJ) as one of Washington’s Largest Women-Owned Companies. Ranked by 2017 revenue in Washington State, the 50 women-owned companies on The List collectively reported revenue of $3.75 billion in 2017.
This award is an honor in general for any woman business owner, and especially so for Goldin, given Dreamclinic’s humble beginnings and challenges faced along the way.
When Larisa Goldin was just starting Dreamclinic, many doubted her idea. One venture capitalist she met at UW Business School plainly told her “we don’t think massage is a scalable business. Massage places are like laundromats, there is a different one on every corner.” But Goldin, the Founder and CEO of Dreamclinic, Inc. would not be dissuaded from her vision of a trusted Wellness business, centered around massage therapy, that one day would serve a large portion of the population, thus creating a healthier planet.
Without access to funding and unable to get bank loans, Goldin had to be creative in birthing her concept. During Dreamclinic’s first year, she used credit cards to fund equipment and supplies and ran the business out of a single room in a shared space, where she bartered massage for rent. Today, her vision is coming to pass with Dreamclinic performing close to 70,000 appointments a year between four Seattle area clinics and at corporate client sites across six states, including several Fortune 100 companies.
If you are a woman business owner, you are probably well aware that it can be harder to get access to capital and Goldin certainly could not get an audience with any VCs. So she devised a growth strategy around this challenge, becoming super focused on the client experience, making sure clients became evangelists and fueled the business’ growth. The growth is not over as Dreamclinic continues to open more clinics and expands its onsite Workplace Wellness service to more office locations. Goldin is also now focusing on helping other women business founders who are earlier in their journey.
If you have stress, muscle aches, chronic pain or muscle injuries, consider booking an appointment at one of the Dreamclinic locations to get relief and experience the Dreamclinic quality difference.
