My name is Feven and I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Washington. I’m a first generation born Eritrean American which can also translate as, a black woman. Identifying myself for societal constructs has always been hard but picking my profession was harder.
Growing up I wanted to do everything while intuitively understanding that some professions, like health, isn’t merely a profession, it’s a way of life. My father was a first responder during the Eritrean and Ethiopian war and upon coming to America, he became a Registered Nurse. My mother’s side of the family inherited nutritional knowledge and healing protocols for common ailments and sicknesses that arose in their village. Some of these African practices include treatments that are also seen in acupuncture.
I have always been fascinated by the more mysterious reasons why the body responds the way it does and through my studies and trainings with renounced acupuncturist whose focus is on mind-body connection, I have come to approach my practice in a way that is completely guided by you and your experience with the findings you have made with your body. Coupled with the ancient wisdom East Asian medicine has provided for us, and the education I have received in Western medicine from Bastyr University, my treatments consider the many reasons why you are not at your optimal performance.
I look forward to seeing you and will provide a supportive, safe, and expansive space for us to do our healing work.
