Angie W. Yin, MSAOM, LAc., & OMD. was born and raised in a family of medical doctors in Chengdu, China. In her childhood, she spent most of her daycare time at her father’s private integrative clinic where she was exposed to the nature of both Western medicine and Chinese herbal remedy practice. Whenever she got sick as a child, Angie was healed by taking prescriptions from her father, a third generation MD in China. Growing up in such a profound family background in medicine has later inspired her desire of becoming an acupuncturist and Chinese herbology practitioner.
Angie moved to the U.S. in her teenage years. She earned her BA from the University of Washington where she studied Business Administration and Fine Art in oil painting and her dual Master of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University. She relates her expertise and sets of skills in fine art painting with her acupuncture profession as she considers that both share aesthetic quality, manual dexterity, stability and concentration in terms of practice. Angie is fluent in English, Mandarin and Sichuanese (Chinese dialect). She is very open and respectful to the essence of diverse cultures as her patient population comes from a variety of ethnicities.
Angie Yin is a nationally board certified and Washington State licensed practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. She received her clinic education in the U.S., as well as at the most prominent medical schools and hospitals in China, where she received advanced hands-on training in acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatments associated with respiratory disease, autoimmune disorders, gastroenterology, hepatology, nephrology, rheumatology, geriatrics, infertility and gynecology.

Angie encourages her patients to take a proactive role in their own health care by achieving well-being in both spiritual and physical states. She dedicates her professional career towards this concept as she profoundly believes the power of a positive attitude has a great contribution towards one’s health, which she’d love to share and pass on to her patients.
In her spare time, Angie enriches her life with hobbies, such as: reading Chinese classic medical texts and literature, creative writing, mathematics, sketching and painting, art exhibitions, interior design, fashion design, photography, dancing, road trips, hiking and walking her German shepherd dog, Husky.
