Molly DeFazio, L.Ac.

Molly DeFazio is currently licensed as an East Asian Medicine Practitioner in Washington State and a board certified National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) Diplomate of Acupuncture.

After graduating from Boston College in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts, Molly received her Masters of Acupuncture from the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2000. She is experienced with running her own practice, working in a Community Acupuncture setting, with a vast array of conditions, and is now pleased to bring over 15 years’ worth of experience to Auburn Acupuncture.

Molly became exposed to acupuncture when she was an au pair for an acupuncturist during her senior year of college. Her first job after college was teaching English in Japan. After returning to the United States, Molly decided she wanted to pursue a career that would involve Asian culture. After a short course of acupuncture treatments help her recover rapidly from a virus, she pursued a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Her approach to acupuncture and TCM is based on the premise that one’s body has gotten lost on the path to health; TCM gives Molly excellent tools to help your body back on the path to wellness.
