Biography

Wu-Hsun Tom Yang is a licensed naturopathic physician and acupuncturist who specializes in pain and stress management. Currently, he practices out of the UW Sports Medicine Clinic at Ballard and UW Primary Care Clinic at Northgate. He is particularly interested in addressing how pain and stress may affect sleep and digestion. He graduated from Bastyr University with a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine and a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. He is board certified through National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and has volunteered as a subjective matter expert in biomedicine for NCCAOM since 2019. As a practitioner, Dr. Yang strongly believes in the power of patient education and prevention. By understanding their conditions better, patients can work with practitioners to maximize their well-being. His goal is to deliver individualized treatments using a combination of modalities: acupuncture, herbal medicine, and manual therapy. Outside of clinic, Dr. Yang teaches for the Acupuncture and Eastern Asian Medicine department as an adjunct faculty at Bastyr University and enjoys gardening, traveling, and watching international films.
