Rebecca Babic, EAMP, LMP, Dipl.OM

As a graduate of Bastyr University, I have a solid education in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and over 400 hours of clinical intern experience at numerous clinics, such as Harborview Medical Center.

Before coming here to Hawthorn Natural Health, I worked in a community acupuncture clinic, where multiple people may be treated in one room in order to reduce the cost of service to them, and before that I worked at Advanced Women's Health in Tacoma. Thus, I have treated a wide range of patients with a number of different conditions.

I enjoy integrating my training in Massage, Essential Oil Therapy, 5 Element Acupuncture, and Acutonic Sound Therapy in order to maximize treatment results. My particular areas of interest include: women’s health, pain management, gastrointestinal disorders, and stress reduction. My goal as a practitioner is to provide a caring, relaxing, and safe environment to revitalize and nurture good health. I am honored to share and practice my knowledge to assist others on their journey to well being.

Ann Murphy, EAMP, LMP, Dipl.OM

I graduated with a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Bastyr University in December 2010. I am NCCAOM board certified and Washington State licensed Acupuncturist. While at Bastyr I worked in a variety of clinical settings including Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and ShuGuang Hospital in Shanghai. I have found my diverse clinical experience invaluable and believe that it has helped my growth as a practitioner.

Acupuncture should be a relaxing experience. I use simple calming treatments and gentle techniques. I believe that is very important to work with patients to create an individual, personalized treatment plan. Depending upon what is appropriate, I incorporate the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine, tui na (Chinese massage), and lifestyle or dietary advice into my acupuncture treatments. I establish clear goals with my patients so that we are both aware of what we are trying to accomplish.

My particular areas of interest include pain management and relief, women’s health, neurological disorders, stress and dermatological issues. If you have any questions about how acupuncture can help you with your health concerns, please call me during regular business hours.
