My Story

Dr. Andrew Ball, DACM, LAc, DiplOM is a licensed acupuncturist and nationally board certified herbalist in Seattle, Washington. He graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine with a Master's of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine and a Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. He also earned a bachelors degree in Biology and Psychology from Loyola University Chicago.

While initially bound for Western Medical school, Andrew has consistently turned to Traditional Chinese Medicine as the only natural place offering balance and harmony for both his personal and professional life. Life on the side of preventive care means not taking any drugs, avoiding expensive and unnecessary testing, and peace of mind. He is excited to share his passion for health and to help others attain their own perfect state of health and wellness.

While still in graduate school, Andrew had the opportunity to work with the first of its kind UCSD Student Run Free Project in San Diego. This clinic is free, collaborative, and a completely integrated environment where under-served populations are able to utilize acupuncture, allopathic medicine, dental services, legal counsel, and social services. Those experiences transitioned into working with Seattle's Neighborcare 45th Street Clinic and Tent City 3 clinic in the past and currently with ROOTS Young Adult Shelter and Country Doctor Youth Clinic. Many of these clinics are under the direction of Integrative Care Outreach (ICO) where Andrew previously served as the Chair of the Board and Director of Practitioners.
