Become “Fit” with Acupuncture and Tui-Na Massage in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, WashingtonLearn More
Feeling “Fit” is both a physical and a mental state. When in pain we are affected at a physical level by discomfort & impaired movement, and at a mental level by increased stress, poor sleep, and emotional distress.
The powerful tools of Traditional Chinese Medicine include a comprehensive system that treats both the Body & Mind. Acupuncture and Tui-Na massage promote circulation to eliminate pain and balance the nervous system; reduce the perception of stress, improve sleep, and balance our emotions so that we can heal.

During the September long weekend, I tripped in our trailer while camping and pulled a muscle in my back. It wasn't a horrible injury, but it was noticeable every time I walked, and almost reminded me of sciatic pain. Ibuprofen wasn't doing much for me, so I decided to go to FIT for acupuncture from the recommendation of my colleague, who had been before.I have had acupuncture before from a different practitioner in Seattle and wasn't blown away, but this time I felt like it was a reasonable option for my treatment. First off, Tyler is insanely nice and incredibly knowledgeable in his field. He was very thorough in explaining what he was going to do, so nothing was a surprise. At one point, one of the acupuncture needles hit "the spot", which caused me to jerk on the acupuncture bed.
Tyler Martin is amazing. I cannot say enough positive things about him. I was skeptical about acupuncture and non-Western medicine for years, but decided to try acupuncture for my chronic, worsening neck pain and I'm glad I did. I had another experience with a different acupuncturist that was not pleasant. However, Tyler has been a pleasure to see on a regular basis. In addition to Physical Therapy and trigger point massages, he has helped me with my neck significantly. I still have a lot of pain in general and progress does take time (although I did have immediate but temporary relief my first session with him), but overall my pain has decreased and mobility improved. I would recommend Tyler to anyone (as my Uber drivers who drop me off to my appointments can tell you ).
I am so fortunate and most grateful to have found acupuncturist Tyler Martin! FIT Acupuncture helped me get back to work after developing frozen shoulder. On the way to the clinic for my first treatment, I could only drive using one hand on the steering wheel; on the way back, I used both hands on the steering wheel! I have been treated by other acupuncturists, but FIT acupuncture offers so much more! I look forward to each spa-like acupuncture treatment, and now my husband and teenage daughter are experiencing the calming, healing and stress-reducing benefits of Tyler's unique practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I have seen Tyler once a week for four weeks now and I have never felt better in my entire life AND I'm 5 months pregnant! I never had the urge to get acupuncture before, I didn't think it was necessary until my back was in so much pain from the pregnancy ( and I can't take much medicine) I decided to give it a try. From the moment I walked in the door I felt at ease. The office is very clean with a very friendly staff. Parking is a breeze. AND then there's Tyler!!! HE is a doll. very down to earth guy with tons of knowledge to share. He takes his time and makes sure you are comfortable. He also did this amazing massage that i wasn't expecting. I will be a loyal customer even when I'm not in pain to help with some anxiety and to help calm my nerves. I HIGHLY recommend Tyler!
The other reviewers are right, Martin Acupuncture is the best. I recently went through a hard time with a very bad infection on top of having rheumatoid arthritis. Nothing helped as much as acupuncture and deep muscle massage done by Tyler. He is kind, caring, careful and very knowledgeable. He offers excellent suggestions on how to deal with and improve your health. One day, I went to him with no energy. When I walked out, I felt so much better, stronger and had less pain. From the minute you walk in the door until you leave, you know you are working with a staff who cares for you and is willing to do what they can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. If you are thinking about starting acupuncture, go to Martin Acupuncture. You will not regret it.
