Christian Hunt, EAMP

Christian photoReducedChristian graduated with a BA in Sociology, with a focus in Cultural Anthropology in 1991. In 1994 (and many ski towns later) She headed to massage school in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was while in Santa Fe that Christian experienced acupuncture for the first time. Within a month, the symptoms for which she was receiving treatments were totally relieved. The life decision was made, and she packed up the car and headed back east to open a massage practice, and obtain the needed prerequisites for a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Christian graduated from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in 2001. She continues to study acupuncture techniques, take classes, and study Chinese herbal therapies. A strong network of health practitioners is in her opinion pivotal for the health of a patient, which is why she is thrilled to be a new part of the Pearson Chiropractic team!

Acupuncture has seen her through endometriosis, a car accident, competitive rowing, skiing injuries, anemia, and just plain old stress and fatigue. Currently, acupuncture is keeping Christian’s shoulders and back surfing ready for the Pacific Northwest winter swell, and Central America’s big waves! Christian hopes to draw upon her experiences with acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and massage to promote health for all she is able to treat.
