Erin Thomas is a nationally board certified and Washington state licensed Acupuncturist and East Asian Medicine Practitioner and a member of the Washington East Asian Medicine Association (WEAMA). She graduated from Bastyr University with a Master of Science in Acupuncture and holds a B.A. in Psychology. Erin has received training in diverse clinical settings including internships at the Harborview Hospital’s International Clinic, Carolyn Downs Medical Clinic, Providence Mt. Saint Vincent Nursing Home, and Highline Medical Center. She has completed postgraduate studies with Lonny Jarrett, a nationally acclaimed author and specialist in 5 Element Acupuncture, which focuses on treating the spirit and mind. She uses 5-Element theory, constitution, and technique as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis and healing modalities, such as moxibustion, massage, cupping, and Qi Gong. Additionally, Erin has completed extensive training with Dr. Devi Nabudripad which certifies her to practice Nabudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET). NAET is a non-invasive, drug free solution to alleviating allergies and sensitivities that may be the underlying cause of many disorders and symptoms.

Prior to studying Chinese Medicine, Erin did case management for homeless and at risk youth and enjoys working with teens and children of all ages. She was first attracted to Chinese Medicine due to its ability to treat the mind and body as a whole, rather than just the symptoms at hand. She specializes in digestive disorders, depression, anxiety, pain, maternity support, and immune wellness. She enjoys helping people cultivate and support their body’s natural healing potential through acupuncture, herbal and nutritional prescriptions, and diet and lifestyle modifications.
