Mayme Fu is the founder and director of People's Acupuncture, LLC. She is compassionate, curious, and personable. She graduated from Bastyr University, in Kenmore, WA where she received a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture from the MSAOM Program and Certification in Chinese Herbal Medicine. She was awarded the designation of Diplomate in Oriental Medicine by NCCAOM. She practices as East Asian Medicine Practioner, licensed by Washington State. Like Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs have been used for thousands of years with tested, proven results. Mayme has an herbal dispensary with loose herbs (over 300 varieties) and she is covered by most insurance plans and automobile personal injury protection (PIP).
She also believes in working with a wide variety of medical practitioners through referral, such as Primary Care Physicians (MD's and ND's), Chiropractors, Licensed Massage Practitioners, Physical Therapists, Psychologists, and Nutritionists to have the most inclusive healthcare options possible for you and your family. She sees looming in the near future when all of these clinicians could collaborate under the same roof for the benefit of the patients. Imagine the cost savings and the exchange of new break throughs when we're not wasting our resources on turf wars among healthcare providers, insurance providers, etc.

It's through their altered, normalized health that they eventually came to understand how Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine really works. This is truly a process of healing from the inside out.
