Teresa Savarino, MSA, EAMP
NCCAOM Diplomate of Acupuncture
Welcome to Acupuncture Savvy, my name is Teresa Savarino. I am a licensed acupuncturist in Seattle, Washington and the owner of Acupuncture Savvy.
My clinical training includes Bastyr Clinic of Natural Health, UW Medicine – Harborview Medical Center (Madison Clinic & International Clinic), and an advanced internship in China with the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have received advanced training in Acutonics (tuning forks), fertility enhancement from the Jade Institute, and pain reduction from Dr. Richard Tan. Additional clinical training includes experience in the application of moxibustion, cupping, and electro-acupuncture.
My introduction to acupuncture began nine years ago when I was seeking relief for chronic headaches. I was not interested in relying on medication to reduce the pain and sought alternative health care options. A friend recommended acupuncture and within three months the headaches were dramatically reduced. In addition to a reduction in headaches, I also experienced an overall sense of well being which included better sleep, improved energy and reduced stress. After working several years as a human resources manager, I made the decision to follow my passion for medicine and pursue the education necessary to become an acupuncturist.
