Lynette got her first acupuncture treatment in 1994. It was magical and profound. She went about discovering how to study it. Fortunately you don't have to go to China to study Chinese medicine. You can go to San Francisco and the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM).
Lynette finished her Chinese medicine studies with an externiship at Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chengdu, Szechuan, China. While in Asia she also traveled in Tibet, Mongolia, Viet Nam, and Thailand. It was an amazing experience. Ask her about it sometime if you're interested.
Upon returning to the states and passing the California licensing exam, Lynette had a private practice north of San Francisco in beautiful Marin County for 11 years.
After a brief stint in San Antonio, Texas, to enjoy time with her aging parents and growing niece and nephews, Lynette moved to Boise. She opened Acupuncture for Everyone in July of 2014.
When Lynette is not in clinic, you'll find her with her pups in the hills, studying italian, playing around with her DSLR camera, eating in one of the many fine restaurants in Boise's growing foodie scene, or going to an art film at The Flicks.
Here are her official credentials in case you're interested:
- Master of Sciences in Traditional Chinese Medicine (MSTCM), 1996-1999, American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine*, San Francisco, CA
- Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, 1998, NCCAOM
- Currently licensed in Idaho & California.
- Previously licensed in Texas.
Lynette is a gifted acupuncturist! She has helped me immensely during several periods of physical and emotional crisis. As a massage therapist it's nice to know I have someone I can go to. I refer clients to her all the time. If you've never tried acupuncture, try Lynette! You will be amazed by the powers of this medicine.

I wanted to take a minute to say hello and thank you. I haven’t been in for a while because ... I feel good! It’s not great for business, I know : ) But today I was thinking back to how I felt at this time last year - not so great - and I wanted to let you know what a huge impact acupuncture and you have had on my life. Now I’m sleeping at night, I have better energy, and my whole being feels more balanced. I’ll be in again for a tune up and because life happens. In the meantime I will continue to pass your name on to friends and strangers alike. Thanks for offering your skills to our community, I deeply appreciate it.
