Providing gentle, effective acupuncture for all stages of life.

Molly Defazio, EAMP

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.

Donna Turner, EAMP

Donna predominately practices a distal style of needling that relieves neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, stress and anxiety, sinus and allergies issues, digestive disturbances, and more. Her style of acupuncture also facilitates relief of postoperative pain and encourages recovery, offers healthy pregnancy support, relieves insomnia, and boosts the immune system function. 

Donna delved wholeheartedly into her interest in traditional Chinese culture in 2001, when she was introduced to qigong.  At that time, she also had her first experience with acupuncture, and quickly began to learn about Traditional Chinese Medicine. She studied independently until she decided to enter a full-time program at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2004. She became a licensed acupuncturist in 2007 and then spent three years in an intensive acupuncture residency program at one of the busiest clinics in Washington State.

She loves the opportunity to work with new patients and give them their first acupuncture treatment, as well as develop a supportive long term relationship with returning patients.
