Dr. Catherine Oldfield, DAOM, NA, PC 

Hello! I am Dr. Catherine Oldfield, DAOM (Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine)
I am excited have been bringing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to the Lake Chelan Valley here in Washington since 2010.

My medical career began in 1986 as a trained Medical Specialist. As a Medical Specialist I was primarily responsible for providing emergency medical treatment, limited primary care and health protection and evacuation from a point of injury or illness.  I currently hold both a Nursing Assistant and Phlebotomist license.  

I received degrees in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine both from Bastyr University, in Kenmore, Washington, and from Five Branches University, in Santa Cruz, California. In addition, I hold a national certification in Oriental Medicine (Dipl OM) from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  I am licensed in the State of Washington. I also incorporate my training from Five Branches University in the Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Program. Finally, I was a research intern with the Society for Acupuncture Research. As a research intern, I was continually exposed to all of the latest research available in the area of acupuncture. This affords me a unique opportunity to meld all of these attributes to facilitate health and wellness to best meet my patients’ needs.
