Acupuncture in Ballard (Seattle)


Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality that falls under the umbrella of Chinese Medicine. Drawing from wisdom of over 5000 years, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are designed to stimulate the body’s own innate ability to heal.

Acupuncture at Aum Holistic Healing ArtsDrawn to acupuncture while living in Sri Lanka, I returned to the States to pursue my Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, a three and a half year intensive program, at Bastyr University, located north of Seattle, Washington.

I graduated in December 2012 after completing a 5 week intensive externship program of study in China (in the cities of Cheng Du and Shanghai).

After practicing community style acupuncture for a year, I was delighted to start my own private practice in Wallingford. There has been no turning back – I love it!

In November 2019, I relocated to the Ballard area and am most excited at the opportunity to grow in this location.

I currently share space with MG Chiropractic at 928 NW Leary Way, Suite 203, Seattle, WA 98107.



“Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are transformative tools that strongly compliment other healing modalities.  Personally, I believe acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have a wonderful way of weaving together other modalities to help create a strong foundation for healing.”

– Emily Paul, Acupuncturist, Herbalist, Healer

I welcome working with individuals who are working with other practitioners and want to broaden their support on the healing path.
