Josh Luper, LAc, Dipl Ac
Licensed Acupuncturist | Structural Integration Practitioner
Josh Luper is a licensed and board-certified Acupuncturist and Chinese Medicine practitioner for 8 Hearts Health & Wellness. Josh’s approach to patient care focuses on supporting the individual constitution of each person with an awareness of the body as a whole.
Since Qi stagnation can be the primary culprit of pain and limited mobility, Josh works with individuals to increase the free flow of Qi throughout the body. His focus is improving the transfer of motion through the body’s vertical core and giving attention to potential fascial “adhesions” that can restrict free movement of Qi and register in the body as pain. Practicing at 8 Hearts allows Josh to work alongside other practitioners and physicians to provide specialized, adjunctive care with an ease of continuity. These patients are often dealing with digestive issues (like IBS and/or SIBO), seasonal allergies, traumatic brain injuries, or stress and anxiety.
Josh received his Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine training from Middle Way Acupuncture Institute in Mount Vernon, WA. In addition, he also completed a ten-month Practitioner-Intensive training at the Northwest Center for Structural Integration. Josh has found the goals of Structural Integration to be a natural companion to Chinese Medicine.
When not seeing patients or working in the clinic office at 8 Hearts, he enjoys hiking and exploring the Pacific Northwest, as well as traveling to visit family in his hometown of Nashville, TN. Josh’s diverse background and experiences have helped shape his practice in creating a space for individuals from all walks of life.
