OTHER INDEPENDENT PROVIDERS
Rozalyn Khabibulin - LAc, Acupuncturist, East Asian Medicine Practitioner
I believe that our health and wellness is our greatest investment. The body is constantly moving towards either sickness or health and our actions will determine which side we end up not simply our genetics. I am a firm believer that we control our health destiny.
I pride myself on the care and interest I take with each patient. I am passionate about helping women and their families reach their optimal health with natural and effective treatments through a combination of Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Moxibustion and Chinese Medicine.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has been used for thousand of years to successfully help with Women’s Health issues from irregular, painful menstrual cycles, pre-menstrual syndrome, peri-menopausal symptoms, improving fertility, and optimizing overall function for women of all ages. The evidence is piling up in the western world that Acupuncture can have profound health benefits specifically in regards to fertility, PCOS, women’s health and pain management.
I earned my Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. I am Washington Board Certified, California State Board Certified and a Nationally Board Certified Acupuncturist. During my Masters Degree and post-graduate training I took a special interest in pain management, fertility, pregnancy, women’s health and cosmetic acupuncture.
I have also successfully used Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture techniques in conjunction with Conventional Medicine synergistically to help my patients with health concerns including digestive disorders, depression, anxiety, headaches, insomnia, respiratory disorders, neurological disorders, pain, chronic pain, auto injuries and sports injuries.
My first experience with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine was in 2006 when my father was diagnosed with rapidly progressive, fatal neurological disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that attacks the nerve cells responsible for controlling muscle action such as those in the arms, legs, and face. I believe Acupuncture helped slow down the progression of my fathers disease, he lived a greater quality of life during his last years because of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
As an active Rotarian and community member I have dedicated hundreds of hours toward community service, in promoting health and wellness and raising money for great causes such as school programs, and the American Cancer Society.
I take most general health insurance. Call (360) 805-8252 to set up a complementary consultation today. I look forward to meeting you and working with you on living a life without limits.
Gurpreet S. Khurana - Director of Dentistry, DMD
Dr. Khurana was raised in Bellevue. He can remember the days when the skyline of Bellevue was three prominent buildings which are now dwarfed by the rest of the skyline today. After graduating University of Washington, Dr. Khurana went to get an Ivy League education in dental medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He was among the top four clinical students chosen to work in the faculty dental practice alongside his professors during his fourth year. After dental school he moved to our nation’s capitol, Washington, DC. There, in DC, he worked alongside some of the top dentists and treated many politicians and government officials. After meeting Dr. Peterson, he realized that he would love to move back home to Bellevue. Dr. Khurana is a published author and his passion involves mentoring students in the medical sciences. Outside the dental practice Dr. Khurana enjoys traveling, writing books, playing with his pets, and buying new gadgets.
