Julie Baron, L.Ac.
Julie is a Nationally Certified and Arizona licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She completed her master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2014. She has been in practice since then.
Julie has a background in personal cultivation practices and has been practicing yoga since 1995 and qigong since 2000. In 2006, Julie began teaching Yoga, Qigong, and Tai Chi classes in Tucson, AZ. She taught regular weekly classes and specialty workshops for 15 years in Tucson, Portland, and Walla Walla. For the past five years, she has been leading teacher training, guiding others to teach in an ethical and intelligent way. A natural educator, Julie has a way of demystifying Chinese Medicine and translating it into pragmatic and accessible methods. She believes change must begin within, yet we can all be a catalyst for change in one another.
Julie comes to acupuncture after ten years of being a therapeutic massage therapist, specializing in sports medicine, injury management, and functional movement. This background, combined with her experience as a movement educator, has led to her ability to assess and treat physical pain in the body exceptionally well. In addition to both active and chronic pain, Julie has naturally moved towards a focus on women’s healthcare. She has a passion for herbal medicine and has found success in treating infertility, menstrual irregularities and painful cycles. She believes herbs are a key component to restoring health and vitality.
When not in the clinic, Julie can often be found hiking, practicing yoga or qigong, spending time with family, making art, or playing in the kitchen. She lives each day with gratitude in her heart and believes spreading joy is the true medicine.
