We treat everyone — from pediatrics to geriatrics, at every stage of being.

We are deeply committed to bridging Eastern and Western medicine, and collaborate with each patient to find the best health approach for your life. We use acupuncture, supplements, nutritional advice and lifestyle recommendations to help our patients feel great in their bodies — physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Julie Bear Don't Walk

Julie Bear Don’t Walk is committed to helping people find their best path to wholehearted health. As a licensed acupuncturist, she uses acupuncture, herbs, nutrition counseling and tui na bodywork to nurture health and wellness.

As a mother and visual artist, Julie understands that life and health are creative processes, continually evolving with the different phases of our lives. She is best at meeting her patients where they are on their road to health; whether taking those first steps toward better health, or honing years of health-awareness. Julie truly helps foster well-being in body, mind and spirit. Julie’s areas of interest include: reproductive health, digestive issues, fatigue, pain, mental health, pediatrics, chronic conditions, dermatology and geriatrics.

Julie received her Master’s degree from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, Chicago. During her six years of coursework, she completed 3,000 hours of training. This is in sharp contrast to many chiropractors and medical professionals who have completed only 100 hours of training. Pacific College’s renowned program is noted for its herbal department and high academic standards. While a student, she had the privilege of apprenticing with Marie France Collin, an accomplished acupuncturist who lived and studied Chinese medicine in Asia for over twenty years. She also studied with Tom Hurrle, a veteran of Japanese-style acupuncture. Julie also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Comparative History of Ideas, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Sculpture, both from University of Washington, Seattle.

Julie’s last name, Bear Don’t Walk, comes from her husband, Scott Bear Don’t Walk, an American Indian and a member of Crow Tribe of Montana. The name originates in a vision his great grandfather had of very old bear hunting for salmon in river, which represents sacred healing and lifelong wellbeing. By taking this name, Julie accepts the responsibility and privilege that comes with helping people follow their path to wellbeing.
