Sydney Bale, MS, L.Ac, EAMP is a nationally certified Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist licensed in the state of Washington. She graduated from Bastyr University in 2011 with a Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal medicine. She is recognized by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is credentialed with most major health insurances in the state of Washington.


Sydney credits her upbringing in a family-line of physicians, as well as her love of nature and plant medicine, for her desire to practice Traditional Chinese Medicine. Sydney received her undergraduate degree in Botany from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA and her Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine from Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA. Addressing health and well-being outside of the typical model of pharmaceutical drugs and symptom-based care has been a long-time interest of hers. She is passionate about alternative forms of healing which highlight preventative care and the important connection between mind and body in attaining whole health. She also enjoys working with people and hearing their stories. Her time at Bastyr included clinical work in the HIV, Refugee, and Chronic Fatigue Acupuncture Clinics at Seattle’s Harborview Hospital where she witnessed the benefits of acupuncture in a variety of different cases. In 2011 she completed an externship at the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chengdu, China. It was the highlight of her education to observe the practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine in its homeland.


Returning from Asia, Sydney spent two years under the mentorship of Dr. Jing Liu, L.Ac., OMD, PhD, leading Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist in Scottsdale, Arizona, renowned for her work in fertility support and pediatric care. At that time she was fortunate to also mentor under doctor and academician Dr. Shi Xue Min from TianJin, China. His development of the ‘Xing Nao Kai Qiao’ acupuncture method has been effective in treating post-stoke conditions as well as many other nervous system disorders. During her time in Arizona Sydney treated a number of cases ranging from pain management, stress, allergy, and cold to stroke rehabilitation, Tourette’s/ADHD in children, and infertility.


Sydney continues to focus her practice on pain management, hormonal imbalances, and certain neurological disorders. She enjoys working with a wide variety of patients from children to the elderly. Her practice incorporates the use of Acupuncture with Chinese Herbal therapies to bring a greater sense of health and well-being to her patients.  


An experienced TCM practitioner with a passion for alternative healthcare, Sydney is communicable and investigative with knowledge and skill in the art of building trusting relationships with patients, providing exceptional care, and inspiring individuals to become more involved in improving their health.  She also enjoys many of the wonders of the outside world, travel to exotic places, yoga, and eating well.
