Review: Ballard Acupuncture Center
I feel like I am 10,000 years too late on the acupuncture bandwagon, but nevertheless, I finally jumped on. Up until very recently, I had never tried acupuncture, not because I didn’t want to or didn’t believe in it, I just literally never made the opportunity happen.

An Integrative Approach for IBS Relief
Irritable bowel syndrome affects millions of people, but an integrative approach may provide relief.
For most of his life, Rich Geldreich suffered gut distress. The 42-year-old San Diego–based software engineer had experienced recurring bloating, gas, and constipation since he was 13. His symptoms grew more severe as he aged and were exacerbated by his stressful job.
Geldreich enlisted the help of two Seattle healthcare providers: functional naturopath Dan Lukaczer, ND, and acupuncturist Avigail Cohen, LAc. Over the next 18 months, each would help him identify and treat the underlying causes of his IBS. More

Improving My Wellness at Ballard Acupuncture Center
I am always working on upping my wellness game but had yet to try acupuncture until about two weeks ago. The same week I got my brows microbladed I went to Ballard Acupuncture Center for my very first treatment!

A Beginner's Guide to Acupuncture
Acupuncture. If you’ve never done it, the word alone could give you the skeevs...especially if you have issues with needles.
But I am here to tell you that there is nothing to fear of the ancient Chinese practice. Acupuncture is seriously a hidden gem of the medical world. Not only can it help you with MILLIONS (maybe an exaggeration, maybe not) of medical maladies you might be experiencing, but it genuinely feels like a trip to a spa, se très, zen.
I visited Avigail Cohen, a Licensed Acupuncturist at the Ballard Acupuncture Center to chat about the medical practice, and to indulge myself in a treatment. I’ll admit, I have done acupuncture in the past (so maybe instead of a beginner’s guide, we will call this a second or third-timer’s guide) and have always sworn by it, but it was so nice to get back in the saddle and I am most likely going to make this a frequent thang.
Let’s jump on in and get the basics out of the way before I dive into my personal experience and how ~fab~ I felt during and afterward.

Interview with Avigail Cohen, Owner of Ballard Acupuncture Center
Tell us about you! Where are you from, what was life like growing up?
I am the first-born American citizen in my family. My mother is Irish and my father is Israeli. I have aunts, uncles & grandparents who were born and raised in Ireland, England, Israel, Cuba, Sweden, Latvia, Germany and Australia. We are a large and close family. I was born in Queens, NY but mostly raised in Great Neck, NY where I lived with my sister and parents. Since we had family all over the world we always traveled a lot. As a child I spent summers in Europe and Israel visiting family when my parents worked. I moved to Seattle in 2000 to study acupuncture and have stayed since. I now live in Ballard with my husband and 2 children. My son Noam is 13 and my daughter Bnaya is 11.

We sat down with Avigail Cohen, L.Ac. to learn more about her business and what they do for the community.
What is your favorite aspect of owning a business in Ballard? My favorite aspect of owning a business in Ballard is the community. I love that I can walk to work. It is great to be part of the community as a business owner, but also as a homeowner and a mom. I get to enjoy all the different aspects of being a member of the Ballard community.
