Hear what out clients have to say about Acupuncture Northwest & Associates.
Dear amazing Staff of Acupuncture Northwest, I just wanted to write to say thank you again. You all truly are doing amazing work and I’m so thankful for your support and care. You may hear this a lot, but I truly believe you are working miracles in the lives of so many. We certainly are grateful for the precious miracle you helped bring into our world. I know he wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t found you all. Gratefully, K & J—
I have been receiving treatment for chronic hives. After only one session they were noticeably reduced (which is such a relief after over 5 months!) I plan to continue in hopes they will completely go away. With Matt, he was very thorough in his questioning and I genuinely felt as if he was determined to help me and my frustratingly difficult to pinpoint condition. I have seen Stephanie as well (I’m floating around due to scheduling conflicts) and I also found her to be very kind and thoughtful in her questioning and am looking forward to more appointments. The office itself is very warm and inviting and casual enough to make you feel comfortable throughout your appointment.. – Yelp
“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.”
“I loved my appointment with Matt and I just wanted to call and have you thank him for me!” – a brand new mother (she called right after her baby was born).
“Cheryl, I cannot thank you enough for all your help and support. Our miracle baby finally arrived and I know if wouldn’t be possible without you – you are truly special and I’m forever grateful to you…”
Julie Booker is an outstanding acupuncturist whose care, attention, skill, and professionalism made my time with her both comfortable and productive. I began seeing Julie on the recommendation of my OB/GYN in the third trimester of my pregnancy to treat my migraine headaches. I have had migraines since I was a child and have always treated them with medication, which I chose to quit during my pregnancy. When my migraines became increasingly frequent and severe in my third trimester, I began seeing Julie, whose treatments began to lessen the frequency of my migraines almost immediately and resolved them completely within a few weeks. I am now 7 weeks post-partum and still haven’t had a migraine since early in my third trimester, which is by far the longest I have ever gone without one. Julie also helped to induce me when I was 39 weeks pregnant with a very large baby (on the advice of my OB/GYN), and I went into labor 6 days early, just one day after my induction treatment. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie to anyone seeking acupuncture treatment for any condition, but especially for migraine treatment and prenatal care.
“I first came to Natalie because I had heard acupuncture could help with gout. Being unfamiliar with both gout and acupuncture at the time, I was eager to try anything that would help cease the pain quickly. She could not have been more gracious and knowledgeable and I was amazed by how quickly the pain and inflammation subsided. Since then, I have come to Natalie for help with knee pain from playing basketball and digestive problems. Natalie has used acupuncture and herbs to relieve all of these issues at various points.”
Thank you so much for your care and attention [Matt]. My visits have made a huge difference. Wishing you the best, Thanks, C.
‘I would recommend Andrea to anyone!!! I began seeing her to help regulate cycles and increase fertility as my own methods of trying to get pregnant were unsuccessful. It was my first experience with acupuncture and I was initially hesitant about it, but after my first couple visits I couldn’t imagine not continuing. Andrea was so positive and reassuring–she was the first person that gave me hope that I could still be a mother in the near future. Not only did I quickly notice positive changes physically, but I started to realize how she was one of my main emotional supports through the process as well. Andrea’s utmost professionalism and thorough insight really helped give me clarity and peace of mind as I was going through such an uncertain time and couldn’t get many answers from medical doctors. After only 6 months of regular acupuncture visits with Andrea and one IUI, I was pregnant! I am certain it is because she helped my body get back on track from being on birth control for 8 years and gear up for the only fertility treatment I needed to start a family. I have continued to see her through my first trimester and am growing a very healthy baby! I will forever be grateful for her help in my journey.’ -Tiffany Goles
“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Acupuncture Northwest and would wholeheartedly recommend this clinic to anyone who is looking for a holistic and welcoming space to find healing. I was seeing Cheryl House for acupuncture to help reduce stress and anxiety and was truly amazed by the results of her work. Cheryl is so lovely and amazing at what she does! I couldn’t recommend this place and Cheryl enough!”
“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!”
Thank you so much for all of your help and support, Matt. I’m very glad I found my way to you. – I.
After doing physical therapy, I still had pain in my shoulder and a lack of full functioning. With acupuncture (from Julie) I had more relief than anything else I had done and it happened in a shorter period of time and with less effort. – Libby
“Hello Julie, I wanted to say hello and thank you for your care during my pregnancy. It was so great to be cared for by your healing presence. I truly believe your care greatly contributed to all the good we are enjoying in her birth and newborn season.”
I wanted to say how much I appreciate your intuition as well, but I didn’t know exactly how to word it. And that you (Julie) helped me more than many of my doctors and therapists!
Here’s what else she wrote:
“I have been a client of Julie Booker’s for the past 8 years. She has dramatically contributed to my healing after serious injury, as well as healing chronic pain caused by stress, like neck pain and headaches.
My serious injuries included a concussion, a broken leg and a broken ankle. Julie helped to get things circulating and healing. She also helped my body, mind and spirit cope with the trauma I was experiencing.
I trust her with my healing because of her mastery of the art and the science of Acupuncture. She has a warm, welcoming bedside manner that helps me relax and know that she is listening to everything that I say.
With her broad knowledge of Eastern and Western medicine she reduces my pain and restores my energy. I always leave feeling stronger and with increased energy.”
Hi, I just wanted to tell you it was so nice to meet you on Monday and I felt better than I have in months that day AND slept all night on Monday Looking forward to seeing you next Friday!
“We couldn’t have had this sweet baby without you! I really appreciate all the care I’ve received from you over the last year!”
I started seeing Andrea in 2011 after our health fair. I was going to see her for stress but then we started talking about fertility and decided that she could really help out in that area also. We got pregnant in 2012 and I saw Andrea thru the entire pregnancy. NO MORNING SICKNESS and such a great help with relaxation and just helping me out emotionally. Our girl was born in December and I know that Andrea helped with that whole process.
Second child update…We decided we wanted to try for one more before I was “too old” and we started seeing Andrea again in June of 2014 and by end of July we had a positive test. Since the due date is stating we got pregnant in June I know Andrea helped with that … We are at 15 weeks and since our first came early, she is seeing me a bit more to help keep the pre-eclampsia away. She is such a blessing and I would highly recommend her for either relaxation or ESPECIALLY fertility. She will always be my acupuncturist and I am so blessed for having met her!
“So, your girl (Andrea) was a miracle worker. I did everything she told me to do on Saturday, I took it easy, did the ice, upped my electrolytes and on Sunday morning the pain was gone. She is a miracle worker…”
Thanks for all of your treatments, support, and guidance through this process. We are so happy and blessed!
“Thanks, Stephanie Gianarelli and Acupuncture Northwest, for making our little bundle of joy possible and for the cute onesie! We owe our happiness to you.”
“You are amazing [Cheryl]! Thank you so much for all your help! I am so blessed! This wouldn’t have happened without you!”
“I loved my appointment with Matt and I just wanted to call and have you thank him for me!” – a brand new mother (she called right after her baby was born).
Thank you so much for all your support these past 9 months. I truly believe that [our] baby probably would not be here today if not for the help of acupuncture and the herbs! I’m so grateful that acupuncture was accessible to me and for the great care provided to me by you. Thank you again, [Cheryl]!
When I had my shoulder injury, Julie would treat me right after PT and my range of motion would increase by 20-30% in about a minute and a half. My physical therapist was so amazed and told me to always get acupuncture right after I had PT with her. Without acupuncture, it would have taken me much longer to heal my shoulder. Thank you, Julie! – Stephanie
Dear Julie, Just a quick note to say thank you for seeing me during my last 2 weeks of pregnancy. Your care and attention did wonders in helping my back pain and swelling. Thank you again for such wonderful care. I look forward to seeing you in the near future!
Thanks to you and your help, prep, knowledge/advice, and wonderful conversation. I’ve had two awesomely successful pregnancies and deliveries. You do great work and I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with you. I’ll be in touch soon. via email
“We’re in love [with our newborn baby]! You know, I don’t think she’d be here without your assistance [Cheryl]. I’m so grateful!!” – age 42
I have been going to Julie Booker off and on for many years since 2003 and she is my “miracle worker.”
Andrea, We received some very happy news this week…. I’m pregnant! We are over the moon with joy.
Thank you so much for all your efforts with these treatments to bring healing to my body since this past June. I KNOW that my time, energy and financial resources were not wasted and I’m grateful I found your clinic and that we were able to avoid the IVF process. We were planning to start that process next month. 🙂
Right around the time I believe I conceived, I had an ultrasound that week and the large cyst we were treating had completely disappeared and there were no signs of inflammation. A perfect environment for conception.
I wanted to update you on the new addition to our family! We are all doing well, and i am healing up nicely. I feel pretty good and only a week post c section, I feel I am doing remarkably well. I am up and walking and all in all feeling good, but taking it easy as well. I want to thank you as i know that my recovery was so important, I feel that working with you helped immensely. Thanks!
I was suffering from excruciating headaches and was prescribed these huge pills by a Neurologist. When I read the “side effects” of those meds, I decided not to take those prescribed meds and instead opted for a non-invasive alternative treatment. Fortunately, I discovered Julie Booker. She did both acupuncture and massage at that time and after several treatments with her, she helped get rid of my headaches completely.
So now, every time I have pain issues with my neck or elbows or sciatica pain on my legs, I go to Julie for acupuncture treatments. With every treatment, Julie helps me relax and release all my stress and anxiety with her acupuncture and maintains my energy balance with acupuncture.
I highly recommend Julie Booker for acupuncture treatment.
Dear Andrea and Acupuncture Northwest, Thank you for all of your care and support during my pregnancy. You are the best!! via another really cute card!
“Dear Cheryl, Thank you so much for helping with my fertility. I credit your acupuncture and herbs for my now 14 week pregnancy! … We cannot thank you enough for your help.” Age 43 via a cute card. 🙂
“Hi Andrea and Acupuncture Northwest!
We were able to have almost exactly the birth experience we were hoping for with an unmedicated out-of-hospital birth. I definitely think that all of the acupuncture during my pregnancy helped with a smooth and speedy labor. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
We have countless thank you cards and emails from happy parents. Here are a few of those to share with you…
Andrea, I am so happy to tell you that I am pregnant!!! All because of you 🙂
My FSH is now 5.9. (When I was told the number over the phone, I had to have her repeat it three times, I was just stunned!!) When I was first tested in December, it was 33. Our Ob/Gyn said that the number could bounce around, but there was almost no chance that it would ever be a normal level. Two months later, and here I am. All of you are miracle workers! Thank you!!!!!! – S.G.— (now mother of two)
Hi, Just wanted to let you know I got a positive pregnancy test this month…it’s still early, of course, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed, but thank you for all your help! – CY
“Hi Andrea and Acupuncture Northwest!
Thank you for all the support and care during my pregnancy. You are the best”
“Thanks, Stephanie Gianarelli and Acupuncture Northwest, for making our little bundle of joy possible and for the cute onesie! We owe our happiness to you.” via Facebook.
“Dear Cheryl and the Acupuncture Northwest & Associates team, Thank you so much for the care you gave us on our journey to parenthood.”
“Great news, Cheryl! we had a positive test!…Thank you so much for all that you have done to help us. I cannot put into words how much it means. Thank you thank you thank you!
Hi Andrea, Got the call from the nurse today and we’re pregnant! via email.
You were correct! We are having a boy! Just found out this afternoon. Everything looked healthy and on target. 🙂
As others have attested, the staff at Acupuncture Northwest & Associates is phenomenal. In 2011, I had the typical over-40 diagnosis of high FSH and low AMH from a reproductive specialist. I also had the same fertility prognosis most women over 40 hear from reproductive clinics. I was basically told not to have much hope in conceiving with my own eggs or having a take-home baby due to my age. Unfortunately, I also learned I had a blocked tube and a tube that was not functioning. As I worked on getting the tube issues corrected through western medical treatment, I saw Stephanie for adjunct, TCM treatment. She walked the trying-to-conceive journey with me every step of the way. Her treatment plan was specifically designed to treat MY issues; it was not a blanket approach. There were a couple times when I needed to take a break and she agreed; and she was there when I started up again. January 2012, I decided I should let go and chose to quit trying. I had one final treatment with Stephanie and said good-bye. Imagine my surprise when I learned 3 weeks later I was pregnant! I saw Stephanie through my first trimester. In November 2012 I delivered a healthy baby boy, at age 42. If you are looking for compassionate, effective health care, I recommend Stephanie and the staff at Acupuncture Northwest & Associates! – Annie R.
Thank you, Andrea for being such an amazing practitioner! Your treatments have really helped me get through the last 2 years. Tacoma is lucky to have such a great acupuncturist.
“I slept 7 hours straight last night! Thank you, Stephanie.” From C.M. via email

Wonderful place. Stephanie, the owner is very personable and knowledgeable, Cheryl has done an excellent job getting me out of chronic pain. Thank you, ladies. Jurga M. via Yelp
There’s no doubt in my mind that your work has helped. Thank you!
I have been seeing Andrea for 3 years. Whether I am suffering from anxiety, neck /shoulder tension or an old fashion cold I know that she will take great care of me. After my visit I always feel refreshed, centered and like myself again.

Acupuncture Northwest has helped me so much with my overall energy level as well as with more punctual treatments. Andrea’s help to get rid of a bad pneumonia last year was huge. She has been continuously improving my overall health and has helped me stay in balance through the recent challenging times of my busy life. I don’t take any other sort of medication and the treatments I receive from her are just exactly what I need.On top of that, Andrea really takes the time to listen to my needs and makes me really comfortable during every visit.The staff at acupuncture Northwest is super helpful. They always go above and beyond to accommodate me and find a way to get me in when it is the most convenient for me.I always look forward to my next visit! – Guillaume W. via Yelp
Many thanks for the great appointment yesterday – last night I actually had my first uninterrupted 7.5-hour sleep in a very long time! Amazing.
I went to my first acupuncture appointment with great skepticism and fear. I confess I am a little needle phobic, but after a year of a painful tennis elbow, I was ready to try anything. Stephanie was very kind and gentle and really took the time to listen to me. But, best of all, after 4 treatments she cured my elbow and it has not bothered me since. As a physician, I now refer patients to her on a regular basis and the feedback I get is outstanding. She is a skillful practitioner and a wonderful person.
I have also heard many great reports about the other acupuncturists in this office. My patients have had amazing successes from their treatments at Acupuncture Northwest. – Judy K. via Yelp
Just wanted you to know my back feels so much better after my session with you!
Thank you! via email.
I was very impressed with Acupuncture NW & Associates. They really listened and had genuine interest in helping me with my health and pregnancy goals.
They were very knowledgeable and have helped 1000?s of other women like myself.
I also felt great after my treatment and feel that they have helped me put a good plan together to reach my goals.
I highly recommend them! Abby A. via Yelp
Seriously, those herbs are magic and the ONLY thing that works for my digestive issues
One visit to Andrea Iwi’ula changed my whole outlook on what was possible for my health and vitality. In just a couple words about metaphors used in acupuncture for weak pulse rates like mine, she helped me analyze how fear was affecting my life and health. Her treatment was perfect – I finally felt that my fatigue and joint pain was alleviated and I had the perfect amount of energy that kicked off a busy summer. Treatments from her are truly transformative. -Via Yelp.
You are the best!…amazing treatment…felt 100% better right after my treatment….continues today. Got up without my stiffness and pain! -G.G.
I have been seeing Stephanie at Acupuncture Northwest & Assoc. for nearly five years, with good results. The treatments I have received have been mainly for the memory loss, and joint pain usually associated with the aging process.
The health practitioners at Acupuncture NW are professional, passionate, and care deeply for the people they serve. – via Yelp.
The staff at Acupuncture Northwest & Associates is top notch. They are professional, friendly and compassionate.
I have been seeing Stephanie for the past 5 months and have had great results. Her positivity is contagious and I always feel better after meeting with her. I value her skill and knowledge.
If you are looking for a group of people who care about you and your health, make an appointment at Acupuncture Northwest & Associates. – via Yelp
I’ve been receiving treatments at Acupuncture NW for over 10 years for various injuries, aches and pains. They are very professional and all the acupuncturists are masters in their profession.
Most importantly, as a result of being treated there, my need for a long-acting asthma inhaler has been reduced from 4 applications per day to just 1 application every 3 to 4 days. Tom B. via Yelp

I was diagnosed with an over-active thyroid. Over six months, the thyroid levels continued to worsen to a critical level and I was prescribed thyroid medication. Having experienced the negative effects of pharmaceutical thyroid medication in the past I wanted to seek alternative therapies. My family physician was not happy with my decision although she agreed to six weeks for me to try something other than drugs.
I went to see Stephanie Gianarelli at Acupuncture Northwest with my timeline of six weeks. Stephanie listened with such loving compassion to my worries about my thyroid, and to the depression I was feeling over the debilitating pain I was experiencing in my neck, in my back and in my arms and legs. Although concerned with the limited time of six weeks to work on my thyroid Stephanie was so encouraging and so positive! We started on a series of weekly treatments for my thyroid and for the pain.
Only four weeks later, with a follow-up blood test, my thyroid levels were back to normal! And, I am no longer suffering from the intense pain in my body. I can now manage my daily activities and enjoy my life! I am so happy with the results of the acupuncture sessions at Acupuncture Northwest. Thank you, Stephanie!

Treatment yesterday was super successful! No pain meds last night. Thank you!
I have been seeing Stephanie at Acupuncture NW for a year and a half. I have been getting acupuncture treatments for nearly 15 years now in the Seattle area, and I can honestly say she is by far the best practitioner I have ever had. She is extremely empathic and uses a holistic approach to treatment. I started seeing her when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, and a few months later I needed to have pituitary surgery for a benign tumor. The recovery was a nightmare and without Stephanie’s caring attention and skill as a practitioner, I would not have gotten through it as well as as I did. I so appreciate her and her wonderful staff and cannot recommend them highly enough! Heather E. via Yelp

At Acupuncture Northwest I always went to Stephanie. I went to her with lots of issues and she was able to help me. She is a great listener which is important when one is trying to communicate ailments. She is easy to find downtown in the Medical Dental Bldg.
I went to Stephanie for acupuncture treatment when I was experiencing migraine headaches. The treatment I received was very professional, they accepted my insurance plan, and I was amazed that the pain I was experiencing was dramatically reduced over several acupuncture treatments. I highly recommend Acupuncture Northwest & Associates. – via Yelp Christopher B.
Stephanie has been treating me for sleep issues and allergies for a couple years. I notice the benefits when I get regular treatments, and gradually my symptoms (especially insomnia) have been decreasing.
The Chinese medicine dispensary is well stocked and with attention to detail they always seem to come up with exactly what is needed. – via Yelp Curt D.
Your presence and your talent have gifted me with so much. I feel like I’m about to break into an extension of life-none of which I’ve experience yet.

I feel like there is so much I could say to you in words of thank you, so I think I shall just say “Thank you”.

I feel so empowered! You’re the greatest. Thanks for being in my life. – C. —
Having had a maddening, debilitating case of eczema for 6 years, and upon the recommendation of a friend I went to Acupuncture Northwest & Associates. My results were immediate, sustained, and beyond my expectations. Moreover, the results were far more effective than any of the many treatments which I had tried – medical, naturopathic, or herbal. I will continue with the acupuncture.
The beneficial effect of acupuncture has gone beyond greatly reducing the eczema. It has eliminated a lower back ailment, reduced the pain from arthritis in both knees, and increased my overall level of energy. There are other subtle psychological benefits – perhaps a result from being freed from the constant aches; perhaps from the “energy realignment” about which I have heard but which I do not pretend to comprehend. I do understand the good results.
I also now understand that part of the role of acupuncture is to unlock one’s internal curative forces. I’m grateful for Acupuncture Northwest & Associates for providing the key. – William N.—
I now have a clearer understanding of mind and body. I urge you to try Acupuncture Northwest & Associates. You won’t be sorry. – Brian B.—
Thank you for everything. From the moment I met you, I had a profound sense that you really cared about me. – S. P.—
