Acupuncturist comes to Blaine on Tuesdays


A Bellingham acupuncturist began practicing in Blaine on October 1. Practitioner Rand Dennis, owner of Affordable Acupuncture in Bellingham, decided to extend her practice to Blaine because she regularly sees several clients from Blaine, Birch Bay and Point Roberts.

“After an acupuncture session, people can really feel relaxed and it’s a shame to get back on I-5 to drive back home and undo all that,” Dennis said.

Dennis has had her Bellingham practice since 2006. With two other colleagues available in Bellingham on Tuesdays, she felt confident in dedicating this day to serving clients up north. To her, it seemed like a good fit.

“I have always loved Blaine and had a connection to the community, with friends living up there,” Dennis said. “If it’s a success and we feel like we could branch out to more days per week, we would really like to be able to do that.”

A graduate of the Seattle Institute of East Asian Medicine, Dennis is fully trained in Chinese medicine. She offers traditional acupuncture with needles and also cupping therapy. In addition, she has an extensive knowledge of Chinese herbs and their healing applications.

Her Blaine practice is located in the Blaine Healing Arts Massage Therapy building at 366 H Street. She said massage therapists Laura Hedges and Kari Hrutfiord who own the building have both been very welcoming.
