Maria Hunter Bellingham Acupuncture

Maria Hunter (she/her/hers), MAcOM, LAc, AEMP, FABORM, loves working with all peoples reproductive health care needs, especially those trying to conceive through hormone balancing, regulating menstrual cycles, and resolve painful menstrual cramps, migraines and breast tenderness, or help you ease through menopause. Maria holds advanced certification in Reproductive Acupuncture (ABORM).

She is committed and excited to provide natural solutions for your health concerns and is inspired to strengthen the health of communities through individualized and effective care. Fertility, pregnancy and postpartum care are her specialties and nothing gives her more joy than resolving painful menses and inflammation caused by endometriosis, or helping people recover from migraines, and manage their Hashimoto and PCOS diagnosis for improved fertility outcomes with healthy pregnancies and babies.

Maria has always had a commitment to health and healing. Before becoming an acupuncturist, she could often be found tending to fellow runners and dancers sprained ankles, applying herbal solutions to bites and bruises, or cooking up nutritionally dense meals for her friends and family.

It was a circuitous route to Chinese medicine beginning with pre-med, graduating with degrees in Public and Global health, and finally discovering acupuncture to address her own health concerns.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine offered the individualized approach to health and healing that Maria had been searching for. She completed her studies at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, and upon receiving her Masters degree, she took off for China to work and study with the best doctors in Jiangsu Province. She returned home to the Pacific Northwest grateful for the clean air and inspired to bring this medicine to as many people as possible

Maria is a NCCAOM board certified and Washington State Licensed acupuncturist, in addition to her ABORM board certification for reproductive acupuncture.
