Dr. Hullender Rubin is an acupuncturist and herbalist passionate about assisting her patients in reaching their family building, health, and wellness goals. She practices a comprehensive, patient-centered approach using acupuncture, diet and lifestyle recommendations, and if appropriate, Chinese herbs, to address the mind and body. This comprehensive intervention is associated with effectively improving menstrual disorders, reducing pelvic or vulvar pain, and supporting assisted reproductive cycle (IVF, Frozen cycles, or inseminations) outcomes, or a natural fertility enhancement plan.

In practice since 2002, Dr. Hullender Rubin is board certified in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and oriental reproductive medicine. She specializes in fertility, women’s health, and female sexual pain and has extensive clinical experience, including managing a successful acupuncture program in an IVF clinic for more than 5 years. Dr. Hullender Rubin is also a clinical researcher and international academic. She has been interviewed on Seattle’s KING-5 news, and highlighted in Seattle Metropolitan and Portland Monthly magazines. When not seeing patients, she can be found working on her acupuncture research projects or around town with her husband and dog, often lingering a little too long in the art book section at Powell’s.
