Dr. Eliza Hofkosh-Hulbert (she/her)

I am a board certified Naturopathic Physician and Licensed Acupuncturist who serves people of all bodies, all genders, and all cultural backgrounds. My training provides a wide range of tools to treat and prevent illness, as well as several different “lenses” that we can use to look at an issue and understand its cause. My practice combines conventional medicine and current scientific research, nature-based treatment options rooted in the wisdom of our ancestors, and a big-picture understanding of the body as always interconnected with our communities, our history, and our planet.

Approach to Care:
I believe my role as a physician is to support each patient in moving toward their own goals for health and healing in a practical, realistic way. I seek to do this by listening deeply, sharing knowledge openly, and trusting the messages that each person’s body communicates. I work to practice health care that is trauma informed, culturally appropriate, and affirms each person’s right to make decisions for their own body. The foundation of this practice is rooted in decades of health justice advocacy and learning from body liberation frameworks such as disability justice, harm reduction, and Health At Every Size. I continue to study, learn, and grow in practice every day, and consider my patients to be some of my greatest teachers.

Naturopathic Medicine:
I offer primary care medicine for all kinds of health needs— including preventative medicine check-ups, gender affirming care, acute illness, and chronic disease management. During my education at the National University of Natural Medicine, my chosen studies and internship rotations emphasized holistic primary care, transgender health care, and community based medicine. After graduating with honors in 2018, I completed a two-year residency which focused on chronic pain, complex trauma, and all kinds of chronic illnesses. During this time I helped patients with many different musculoskeletal, mental health, autoimmune, nervous system, gastrointestinal, and other chronic concerns. This experience allowed me to see in practice how gentle treatments that work with the body can often be effective even in the most complex cases. In addition to practicing family medicine, I continue to enjoy supporting patients with chronic illness.

Acupuncture and Bodywork:
Some patients also see me for acupuncture, where I have a special interest in treating a wide spectrum of chronic pain conditions and nervous system imbalances— ranging from anxiety and headaches to PTSD and fibromyalgia. As an acupuncturist I have focused my studies in the Shen-Hammer pulse diagnosis system, which emphasizes the relationship between mental-emotional and physical health. Thanks to many generous teachers I also have training in a few other lineage practices of East Asian medicine, including gentle Japanese style no-needle techniques which are especially effective for sensitive people. Drawing on over 10 years of practice as a licensed massage therapist in my previous career, I also offer gentle hands-on bodywork, including Craniosacral therapy and myofascial release, during acupuncture treatments.
