About

Rebecca Kitzerow is a Licensed Acupuncturist practicing in La Center, WA. Rebecca has been in practice since 2006 and evaluates and treats patients using both Chinese and Japanese style Acupucture and Traditional Medicine modalities. As an Acupuncturist, Rebecca completes her evaluations by getting a patient history, feeling pulses and looking at the tongue. Then, very very fine acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points on the body that are uniquely chosen patient by patient depending on the individual presentation. Stimulating these points and activating your individual innate healing ability is how Rebecca treats a wide range of conditions. Many of the bodys systems respond to acupuncture, and it can treat physical pain, digestive issues, help with infertility and women's health, as well as emotional stress and so much more. Rebecca has won numerous Nattie - Natural Awakenings Magazine - consumer choice awards for Favorite Acupuncturist and Holistic Practitioner of the Year, and prides herself on patient-centered care.

  • How long after acupuncture do you feel better?

    Every case is different so it can be hard to say. With pain, we usually see relatively quick results but the longer you have been suffering from something they longer it can take to resolve. Acupuncture is a natural medicine that works with the body’s natural energy and ability to heal, if you’ve been suffering from something for months, it’s reasonable for it to take weeks to resolve. If you’ve been suffering for years, think months. 12 sessions is a fairly average course of treatment for most issues, I always ask my patients to give me at least 4-6 sessions to make progress, especially if it is a complex case or prolonged course of illness. Hope that helps! Rebecca M H Kitzerow, LAc All Ways Well, LLC www.allwayswell.com allwayswell@mac.com T./F. 360/952-3074 Cell 503/267-5570 READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture cause miscarriage in early pregnancy?

    It is highly unlikely that Acupuncture would cause miscarriage in early pregnancy. There are specific contraindicated points during pregnancy which all acupuncturists are trained not to use at any time during pregnancy, except or until labor induction/cervical ripening is indicated, and even then only with direct patient consent. The likelihood of these points to actually cause miscarriage is very low, however. Acupuncture can be done very safely at any point during pregnancy and can help with many pregnancy related aches, pains and concerns. ~Rebecca READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture work quickly?

    It depends on how your body responds and what you’re coming in for. If you’re coming in for pain that is relatively new/short-lived, you’re highly likely to feel a significant improvement after just one visit, but if you have a chronic condition or concern it will probably take longer to see lasting results. Acupuncture works with the body’s natural healing processes and typically requires a course of treatment to achieve a cumulative result over weeks or months depending. Rebecca M. H. Kitzerow, LAc READ MORE

  • Is acupuncture safe for diabetics?

    Yes! Acupuncture is absolutely safe for diabetics and Acupuncture has been used to treat diabetic health issues for over 3,000 years. Get acupuncture! It's great. :) ~Rebecca READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture help diabetic neuropathy?

    Yes! Acupuncture can help diabetic neuropathy, though it can be slow and depends on how advanced the neuropathy is and how severe the diabetes is as well. Rebecca M. H. Kitzerow, LAc READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help the flu?

    Absolutely, acupuncture is excellent for cold and flu issues. Chinese medicine has a very sophisticated multi stage view of how colds and flus develop and progress with unique methods for treating at every stage. Great question! Rebecca M H Kitzerow, LAc READ MORE

  • What are the acupuncture points for anxiety?

    As a holistic treatment, acupuncture balances the body as a whole to treat imbalances that manifest with specific symptoms. For anxiety, there aren't specific individual points - it depends on the underlying energetic factors that lead to anxiety in your specific case. I can tell you that they would mostly be knees and elbows below, and perhaps in the pinna (shell area) of the ear. I hope that helps! Rebecca READ MORE

  • Where is the pressure point on your leg?

    There is no single pressure point on your leg, there are 6 energetic meridians in Chinese medicine (12 in Japanese Shiatsu) with over a hundred different points to choose from - what would be appropriate for you depends on your specific maladies and constitution. Basically, your legs (like all of your body) are covered in them. READ MORE

  • What are the acupuncture points for insomnia?

    There are no specific or individual points for insomnia. Acupuncture as part of Chinese medicine treats the individual person and the individual pattern that balances their body to resolve their ailments. The points that would treat insomnia for you would be different for the points that would treat someone else. READ MORE

  • What is ear acupuncture good for?

    In Chinese Medicine the ear is a microcosm of the body with hundreds of acupoints in it, so you can actually treat ANYTHING through ear (or auricular) acupuncture alone. 9 times out of 10, however it is used for smoking cessation/the symptoms of withdrawal as well as any type of stress (mental, emotional, physical) using a protocol called "5NP" or 5 Needle Protocol. Ear acupuncture is also used in "battlefield acupuncture" by the military for pain control. READ MORE

  • Where is the acupuncture point for nausea?

    One of the most common acupoints for nausea is on the medial aspect of the wrist, called Pericardium 6, but there is no single point for any single thing in Chinese medicine. For each patient, the energetic cause for the symptom is unique, therefore the combination of points required to correct or balance it is also unique and it is rare that just one point will suffice.

    There are no pressure points that make you fall asleep instantly that is a myth. READ MORE

  • Can acupressure help knee pain?

    Yes, acupressure can absolutely help with knee pain though in my experience, acupuncture is far superior to acupressure in knee pain cases. READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture help mental illness?

    Yes, Acupuncture can be helpful and stabilizing in cases of mental illness, but it is always recommended to also work with a therapist and/or a psychiatrist depending on the severity of the issue. READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help weak legs?

    Yes! Acupuncture can be very helpful for weakness and wasting. READ MORE

  • How quickly does acupuncture work?

    Most people feel the effects of acupuncture immediately after treatment, but any individual treatment can take 24-48 hours to wear in on a case by case basis. Acupuncture also has a cumulative effect and a course or series of treatments is usually required to maximize results. READ MORE

  • Can you ingest small amounts of essential oils?

    Yes, you can ingest small amounts of many essential oils safely, but not all essential oils are appropriate for that. DoTerra has a good blog post to answer some of those questions: https://www.doterra.com/US/en/blog/healthy-living-reasons-to-use-oils-internally READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture help nerve pain?

    Yes, Acupuncture can absolutely help nerve pain. Depending on how long you have been suffering and how severe the issue is can impact how effective it is in your individual case, but Acupuncture can be very helpful - yes. READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture help getting pregnant?

    Yes! Acupuncture can definitely help you get pregnant and has been well researched for fertility and in particular, for helping IVF treatments be more successful. READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture cure male infertility?

    Acupuncture can definitely help with male infertility as well. In some cases, it can be a cure, in other cases, it can help to be sure, but there is no guarantee that it could cure that problem. It always depends on your specific malady, how severe it is, how long you have been suffering, and how well you respond to acupuncture. Essentially, we have to try for a while to see how it works for you, but it's a great modality that can definitely help! READ MORE

What do you attribute your success to?

  • My family. My big brother got me interested in Chinese culture, language and martial arts from a young age when we would hang out and play in SF Chinatown when I was growing up. My father always believed in alternative medicine and got me into Taiji and martial arts as a teen, and I grew up watching my mom do Acupuncture - starting when I was 9 - and Western medicine didn't have a solution for a strange and debilitating problem. Where Western Medicine failed, Acupuncture and Chinese medicine made her functional again, something that was very important as she was caring for myself and my 3 cousins (ages 9 to 14 at the time) as a single mom at the time. Acupuncture literally kept my family together, and when I had digestive problems due to an eating disorder in my 20's - Chinese medicine healed me too.
