Lynn Weatherson LAc
Lynn Weatherson brings extensive knowledge of the body from her combined backgrounds in exercise science, massage and acupuncture. Her work began as a personal trainer for several years, and during this time she witnessed the profound effects that exercise has on improving health. As a result she decided to pursue massage as an adjunct therapy. This blended skill set allowed her the opportunity to better serve the athletes she worked alongside in their pursuit of health.
Lynn then sought out another healing modality - acupuncture - for her own musculoskeletal injuries, and she fell in love with the profound physical effects that it created. Lynn also noticed other amazing positive side effects including improved sleep, digestion, and a feeling of balance that exercise or massage had never brought out alone. It was upon this discovery that Lynn decided she wanted to pursue a degree in acupuncture to help athletes and others achieve optimal wellness too.
