Karen Kraft, EAMP, RF (East Asian Medicine Practitioner and Reflexologist) graduated from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in 2002 with a Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (M.Ac.O.M). She is licensed by the State of Washington, and is nationally certified by the NCCAOM in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine (Dipl.O.M.). Her postgraduate studies included extensive training in Chinese herbal gynecology with a specialist in Melbourne, Australia, as well as additional training in dermatology and trauma. In addition to her formal training, she has spent several years as a volunteer, providing care for low income populations in the U.S. and abroad. In 2007 she volunteered at the birthing center in Indonesia, treating women in all stages of pregnancy, including prenatal care, labor preparation, post-term pregnancy, breech-positioned babies, labor, and postpartum care. Karen has practiced acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine since 2003. In 2014 she also completed the reflexology program at Seattle Reflexology & Massage Center and became certified as a reflexologist (RF). Her acupuncture treatments integrate multiple modalities, including sliding cupping massage, tuina, and reflexology. The combination of these modalities has a deep calming effect on the nervous system, which allows the body to relax, repair, and rearrange stagnant patterns.
Some of her treatment specialties include:
- Neck, shoulder and back pain
- Gynecological disorders including PMS, painful or irregular periods, infertility, menopausal symptoms, herpes, HPV, cervical dysplasia, yeast imbalances, and other conditions.
- Trauma including sports injuries and post-operative recovery.
- Dermatology including acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
- Stress, anxiety, insomnia
- Sliding cupping massage
Karen is no longer contracted with any insurance companies. However, by request she can provide a “superbill” which may be submitted by the patient for reimbursement if the patient has out-of-network benefits. Many patients also use HSA/FSA debit cards to pay for treatments.
