Stacie Han, Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist
From an early age, Dr. Han learned that the foundation of health centered around nature’s medicine. Dr Han’s mother was her best doctor. Growing up, food and common household herbs used in teas, gargles, soups and poultices were medicine. Sweating was induced to reduce fevers. She first had acupuncture at the age of 7 for an intestinal infection that no drug or herb could help. Her mother taught her how to live with simple, gentle, yet powerful medicines. She owes much to her “Buddha Momma” who also taught her about patience, balancing yin and yang, that too much of a good thing is not a good thing, and that the middle way is best.
Dr. Han earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in accounting and finance from the University of Hawaii and worked as an auditor before discovering her true calling as a Naturopathic Doctor and acupuncturist. She attended Bastyr University in Seattle where she received both her doctorate in naturopathic medicine and masters in acupuncture and East Asian medicine. She completed a 1-year residency with Dr. Owen Miller, ND, at the Holistic Health Clinic in Tacoma, a primary care naturopathic clinic. While there, she further strengthened her belief that diet and lifestyle are the foundations for health, and without these in place, medicines, hormones, physical therapies, etc. are no more than symptom relief. She is a member of the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians and NCCAOM board certified in acupuncture and oriental medicine.
Dr. Han provides naturopathic and East Asian medicine to all. She has a strong interest in women’s health, gastrointestinal health/digestive disorders, adolescent care and oncology. She is especially passionate about diet and nutrient therapy, botanical medicine including Chinese herbal formulations and physical medicine, such as acupuncture and hydrotherapy. In her time to rejuvenate, she enjoys being in nature, hiking, swimming in the ocean, yoga, and traveling. Dr. Han is honored to be practicing nature’s medicine and she is excited to teach and share nature cure with you.

"Alliance rocks! My right arm was going numb and waking me at night. I freaked out because I am very active. I went to see Dr. Vivian - she did a complete exam to make sure chiropractic would help me. She explained that I had an injury within the last 5 years and that I had a number of misalignments in my neck and spine. Within a week of my first adjustment, I wasn't waking up with a numb arm anymore (which I thought was nothing short of a miracle!). Now, we're "training" my neck and back to normal again. Her entire staff always makes be feel comfortable, happy and healing."
