Brad S. Lichtenstein, ND
My passion is shifting the health care paradigm from an emphasis on illness to one of living well despite diagnosis or disease, and I love to work with people interested in taking an active role in their lives. In all my work, I stress the importance of psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being in addition to physical health. My training is in naturopathic medicine, counseling, dance, yoga and movement therapies and meditation. Currently, I practice as life coach, meditation teacher, breathworker, energetic bodyworker, and movement and yoga therapist.

Recently, I was involved in a joint study between the University of Washington and Bastyr University exploring the benefits of meditation and massage on the quality of life and death. Twice weekly, I provided guided relaxation and meditation to study patients. I am a graduate of Bastyr University, and for five years I had been the supervising physician at the Immune Wellness Clinic, a specialty clinic at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health, a teaching clinic in Seattle's Wallingford area, which provides care for people living with HIV and AIDS. At Bastyr, I have taught in the counseling, oriental medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine and philosophy departments. I created the Explorations in Mindfulness and PranaPlay workshops to teach the cultivation of life through active mindfulness, meditation and movement, believing that body-centered awareness is the key to unlocking the doors to our innate wellness.
