About Me

imageI received a Master in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Emperors College of Oriental Medicine in Santa Monica, California in 2008.  I received board certification in Oriental Medicine from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2009.  Furthering my knowledge, I received a clinical Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, specializing in Oncology and Advanced Pain Management, from Bastyr University in Kenmore, Washington in 2011. 

I have studied at Sichuan Provincial Hospital of Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine in Chengdu, China and Long Hua Hospital in Shanghai, China were I further advanced my knowledge in Chinese medicine and cancer care.  Holding an active license in Washington state, I have been practicing for 11 years and have held positions at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Seattle Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center, and Salish Integrative Oncology Center; the first of its kind to be owned by a Native American tribe in Tacoma, Washington.   

During my work at cancer centers, I had the great opportunity to work alongside medical oncologists, radioligists, naturopathic physicians, mind/body medicine therapists, advanced nurse practitioners, chiropractors, and massage therapists, attended tumor boards where complicated cancer cases were discussed, observed surgical procedures, and treated hospitalized in-patients for post-operative care.  

I have been published twice by The American Acupuncturist Journal: 
Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma: A Case Study
Anaplastic Astrocytoma: A Case Study 

I am excited to bring Traditional Chinese Medicine to the Wiregrass area and look forward to serving you.

Many Blessing to you and your loved ones,

Dr. Sunara Sotelo, DAOM, L.Ac.
Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
