Natalie Willits, Acupuncturist
“I went to Natalie for my first-ever acupuncture appointment and didn’t know what to expect. She immediately put me at ease with her calm and nurturing presence (not to mention her impressive knowledge)! We worked on both my physical and emotional pain. I left feeling rejuvenated, relaxed, and excited to book my second appointment!”

NATALIE IS IN TRAINING FOR FERTILITY – She is more than capable of seeing patients during an IVF cycle and is in training for full fertility care.
Natalie Willits is a licensed practitioner of East Asian Medicine in the state of Washington, and is board certified by the NCCAOM in both acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, and her Masters of Science degree from Bastyr University. Since graduating from Bastyr, she has enjoyed blending the unique practice of East Asian medicine with the knowledge of Western allopathic treatment. She enjoys helping a variety of patients, including those seeking treatment for acute/chronic pain, insomnia, digestive complaints, and psycho-emotional disorders. Natalie is currently undergoing rigorous additional fertility training at Acupuncture Northwest in order to become a fertility acupuncturist at our clinic and will also sit for the national fertility board exam (ABORM) next January.
Natalie has worked with some of the top practitioners in Seattle, including the acupuncture teams at Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children’s Pain Medicine Clinic, and the Providence Regional Cancer Partnership in Everett. She makes it a priority to stay up to date with Western medical research, and values its necessity in some paths to healing. With that being said, Natalie has loved using East Asian medicine to help patients in a natural and less invasive way. She works to resolve both the primary symptoms as well as the root cause, which leads to longer lasting recoveries for her patients.
To help resolve pain and activate the healing process, Natalie uses a variety of techniques, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Tui Na (a type of body work), moxibustion, cupping, the balancing technique, and nutrition recommendations.
What patients are saying about Natalie –
“I’ve always been a highly anxious person but never wanted to see a doctor for prescribed medication due to risk of becoming reliant on artificial substances. With my wedding fast approaching and work becoming more and more stressful, my anxiety and stress started wreaking havoc on my digestive system (which was never great to start with). I visited Natalie at Acupuncture Northwest &Associates with an open mind and was immediately impressed with her approach to dig into any and all symptoms as to not make a hasty diagnosis. She asked pointed questions and was able to help me realize that my body’s stressed state is causing my digestive system to hold on as tight as it can. Through acupuncture and a personalized Chinese herb blend, I have felt a new sense of calm amongst the most stressful time in my life. I am seeing continuous improvements in my digestive system and just feel my body veering towards a more normal state. I love how Natalie checks in to ask how I am feeling and is genuinely interested! I’m so impressed with the level of care provided and cannot recommend her services enough!”
“I find Natalie to be one of the most empathetic, personable and compassionate care givers I have ever worked with. Her treatments for sleep and anxiety have been super effective and she never makes me feel like she is scheduling me beyond my actual needs.”
