Giving Back

Acupuncture Northwest & Associates' Community Involvement

Acupuncture Northwest & Associates is rooted in the community and can often be found giving back.

What's Going On Now

Today is June 8th, 2020. In light of what is going in the world and with the black community, we have chosen to support charities aimed at assisting the black transgender community. The transgender community is very near to my heart and the black transgender community, especially black transwomen, often struggle greatly and are murdered at an alarming rate. We want the black trans community to know that they are seen, heard and supported by our small band of acupuncturists (and a massage therapist!) in the Pacific Northwest. With love, Stephanie

Here are the charities that we make a monthly donation to:



Helping train the next generation of acupuncturists and physicians:

We are proud to be a Bastyr University preceptor site. Many acupuncture and naturopathic students have studied at our clinic over the years because of our high quality fertility acupuncture and effective acupuncture for pain. Matt Ferguson also teaches at Bastyr and has been faculty there for over a decade.


We also open our doors to resident physicians to do an elective rotation in our clinics. It's wonderful to be able to share our medicine with the allopathic medicine community.


Giving back to the community: 

We also believe in giving back. Acupuncture Northwest & Associates sponsors many non-profit organizations every year. From having a YouthCare Giving Tree to collect gifts for homeless youth to supporting the Rainbow Center Gayla in Tacoma to sponsoring RESOLVE infertility support groups in Seattle, we are making a difference in our communities.
