Congratulations Natalie for winning Seattle Met Top Doc 2019, 2020 and 2021!

Natalie Willits is a licensed practitioner of East Asian Medicine in the state of Washington, a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) 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. Natalie specializes in the treatment of infertility and fertility enhancement, as well as pregnancy and maternal care, including labor and delivery and postpartum care. She has studied with Jane Lyttleton, author of the most important textbook on the treatment of infertility with Chinese medicine, as well as Debra Betts, the international expert on Chinese Medicine and maternal care. Natalie also enjoys helping a variety of patients, including those seeking treatment for psycho-emotional disorders, insomnia, and acute/chronic pain. 

Natalie has worked with 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 and acupressure, Chinese herbal medicine, guasha, moxibustion, cupping, the balancing technique, and nutrition recommendations.

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!
