About Us

Eastern Bench was founded by Dr. Heather Seay, DACM and James Seay, LMT, in the hopes of providing a restful, urban sanctuary where people could come to connect with their community and receive safe and effective treatment options for their health concerns. Through James and Heather’s experiences in the spa industry, relaxation, healing and client comfort are at the core of all the treatments we offer. We are dedicated to offering you the ease and quality of care you have come to expect from a professional medical facility.  By blending modern holistic health principles with the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine you receive a curated, personalized, healing experience.  In addition to being an expert in acupuncture and herbal medicine, Dr. Heather Seay provides fertility support sessions whether you are trying to conceive naturally or with assisted reproductive technology.  With every appointment, we strive to provide our very best recommendations whether that be with treatment options, herbal recommendations, or dietary & lifestyle suggestions.  Your wellness and relaxation are our primary concerns so we maintain a comforting and therapeutic environment by using the highest quality equipment and techniques to ensure you have a painless and enjoyable experience every time.
