“Dr. Lorina Shinsato has made a huge impact on the quality of life for my daughter. She was able to diagnose health issues that medical doctors either didn’t or couldn’t after years of going to them. Once diagnosed she took a holistic approach that put my daughter on to a path of feeling much better for years to come. She spends time with her patients so they understand how to make the necessary changes to their lives for the best results. I highly recommend Dr. Lorina.”

She is a wonderful human being and I am happy to direct people her way to experience a compassionate healing relationship. If you have the chance to work with her, I highly recommend it.”

“Dr. Shinsato is a wonderful Acupuncture Therapist with a fantastic bedside manner. I was really heard and cared for. She takes time to listen and asks lot of questions so she can really understand the problem. Some times I felt I came to therapy more to visit Dr. Shinsato than for the therapy. The therapy was excellent as well.”

– JR Gillespie, All Star Financial Services

“Dr. Lorina Shinsato is a wonderful naturopath and acupuncturist. I have used her for stress and health conditions. I really felt heard when sharing my issues. She gave great support and was very knowledgeable. I loved her acupuncture sessions. She is highly intuitive and gentle and knew precisely where I needed the needles. I felt so much better and energized. I highly recommend her expertise and her ‘Compassionate Presence’.”

“I have been recently visiting the Pharmaca pharmacy in West Seattle and often was helped and served by Dr. Lorina Shinsato. I want to express my admiration and gratitude for Dr Shinsato, because her help in choosing the right remedy for me has always been superior to any other Doctor or Pharmacist I have met. She is to the point, caring, exceptionally intuitive and respectful of my needs. A naturopathic doctor in the true sense!”

“Dear Lorina: Thank you for your kindness and your expertise. Your suggestions have proved very helpful for relieving my jumpy and flexing leg problem at bedtime. Nothing beats a good sleep. Thanks again and hope to see you next time in Seattle.”

“After several visits to the dermatologist for skin rashes had me applying hydrocortisone to my elbows and knees without result, nutritional counseling with Dr. Shinsato cleared up my one year chronic condition in a matter of weeks. Also, injury to both shoulders is causing me much pain and limited mobility. I have never had acupuncture and didn’t know what to expect, but after each session I have immediate relief that lasts until the next strain caused by either work or exercise. I am now a believer and recommend Dr. Shinsato and the Naturopathic approach to anyone who will listen.”

– Ralph Bertke

“Dr.Shinsato helped me recover from a skiing injury. My shoulder hurt for 6 months, and after 2 acupuncture sessions, the pain disappeared. Thanks so much!”
