Lee MahoneyLicensed Acupuncturist
Lee Mahoney was born in California, but lived in England for the first 10 years of his life, moving to Washington at 10 years old and growing up in Pierce County. Recently, Lee has been a Seattle resident for 18 years, most of those in White Center/ West Seattle, where he lives with his husband of 20 years and their three smooth collies, Aiden, Teagan, and Finn.
Lee came to work as an acupuncturist 8 years ago after finishing his first career in non-profit, taking a yearlong sabbatical traveling the world with his husband. He discovered the benefits of the medicine on his own health after many years of not finding any relief. It was then that Lee decided he wanted to help others find this amazing but often misunderstood form of medicine.
Lee loves what he does and wants his patients to reach their health goals; and part of those usually include getting back to doing the things that make them happy in life.
Lee specializes in sports and occupational injury recovery, pain management, auto-immune management, trauma recovery and anxiety in addition to the general health concerns of most of his patients. He uses a safe, gentle and effective style centered in Japanese acupuncture practices. He is committed to creating a safe, supportive, affirming and accepting environment for all of his patients.
