About Swiss Acupunture

Ginger Nguyen, BA, BS, MS, L.Ac., EAMP

Ginger is an East Asian Medicine practitioner (EAMP) and a nationally board certified Acupuncturist (L.Ac), whose expertise is in Swiss Acupuncture and Chinese Medicinal Herbs for pain conditions. She founded Swiss Acupuncture in December of 2014.

At the age of 6 months, Ginger and her 3-yr old brother were drugged up and carried onto a refugee boat in their mothers arms on a hot summer night of 1982. Her mother gave up her life in communistic post war Vietnam in seach of her husband and a better economic outlook for her two children. The family of 3 made it to land after being out in the open water for 7 days and nights and found refuge at a UN refugee camp in Hong Kong, where they shared a 6x6 foot concrete cubicle for 2 years. They finally received asylum in Switzerland and were happily reunited with their father.

Ginger was raised in Bern, the capital of Switzerland. She excelled in school and studied Math and Physics at the prestigious Gymnasium Neufeld until she was sponsored to move to the United States at the age of 19. Witnessing injustice and human suffering early in life, her passion to improve the human condition started at a young age and led her to earn a BA in Political Science at UNC Wilmington with the intention of becoming a human rights lawyer.

Ginger was part of a team at the Acupuncture and Wellness Center in Poulsbo, WA, who won Best Acupuncturist Award of Korth Kitsap in 2013 and 2014

In pursuit of excellence, she moved from Miami Beach across the country to a small village called Poulsbo in Washington state to practice under one of most well known acupuncturists and herbalists in the country, Master Robert Doane. "Bob" runs one of the busiest and largest TCM clinics in the country and teaches his unique practice worldwide. It was at his clinic, the Acupuncture and Wellness Center, where Ginger mastered his unique and effective style of Acupuncture and Herbal prescription for pain relief, among other conditions. As a team, the clinic's practitioners won the Best Acupuncturist Award of North Kitsap many years in a row.

More History

Starting in her undergrad years, she battled debilitating chronic fatigue. Although there was apparently "no cure" for her condition, she knew that taking hard-core prescription medicine for the rest of her life was not an option and it propelled her desperate search for an answer. Her search not only led her to discover the ancient healing powers of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs but it was a big break through in her emotional and spiritual growth.

Ginger is convinced that her purpose in life is to de-mystify and to bring this often misunderstood Chinese Medicine to benefit her community. She went on to earn a Bachelor's in Health Sciences and a Master's in Oriental Medicine from the Acupuncture and Massage College in Miami, FL. She completed her 3 year clinical internship at two University clinics and was chosen by the University medical staff to earn a Clinical Excellence Award in 2012.

Up to date, Ginger has over 5 years of clinical experience and has performed over 10,000 acupuncture treatments, which is an unusually high number for her profession, giving her the necessary clinical experience and expertise of a top practitioner.

Ginger’s desire to bring this effective medicine to today's modern world gave birth to Swiss Acupuncture, where she maximizes acupuncture's full potential with an evidence based neotraditional style and packages it with a rational and scientific Swiss approach. Her ultimate dream is to mainstream this medicine to help as many patients as possible heal their chronic and debilitating pain conditions so that they can live a more active and pain-free life and most importantly, fulfill their hearts dreams and desires.

We are proud to announce that we are now offering Comprehensive treatment plans starting at only $275 per month!

"I first came to the clinic in early Spetember (2014) with a nagging pain in my left shoulder. The injury was caused when my 90 lb labrador retriever took off at a dead run, came to the end of her leash and didn't let go of it. Ouch! The treatment I received from Ginger and the rest of the staff at the clinic was outstanding. Here it is, early October and the pain in my shoulder is a distant memory. Ginger is a very caring professional who has always addressed my concerns with dignity and respect. Thank you Ginger. May you always find Adventure, Fortune and Good Luck."
