About Xander Kahn, EAMP
Xander is an East Asian Medical Practitioner and health educator who practices palpation-based diagnosis, acupuncture & herbal medicine, and lifestyle guidance. While he is a general practitioner and skilled at treating a wide variety of conditions, his clinical practice focuses on treating digestive disorders such as IBS & chronic constipation, gastritis & ulcers, liver & gallbladder problems, and conditions associated with SIBO.
East Asian medicine is a holistic system of medicine which views the body as an ecosystem—as part and parcel of nature. The strength of this medicine is its time-tested ability to effectively diagnose and treat patterns of inner ecological dysfunction. A given pattern of dysfunction can lead to a variety of different symptoms. Bring balance to the underlying dysfunction and symptoms will improve.
Xander’s practice is about helping people live more vital lives, the natural outcome of a healthier body. The body wants to heal, it often just needs a gentle nudge in the right direction.
Xander graduated with a Master’s degree in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) from the Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine (SIEAM). While there, he studied various forms of acupuncture, bodywork and Chinese herbal medicine under the tutelage of internationally regarded instructors. It was during his time at SIEAM that he began studying Applied Channel Theory and channel palpation with Dr. Jason Robertson, EAMP and he continues studying this approach to this day.
In his free time, Xander enjoys singing & playing music with friends, learning the practice of Taiji & Qigong and exploring the Puget Sound with his wife, Megan.
