Watch Lora and Stephanie discuss integrative medicine.
Stephanie Gianarelli, LAc, FABORM

Meet Stephanie.

As a fertility acupuncturist, it is my honor to assist women and their partners in their pursuit to become parents. I see parenthood as a sacred journey, and it’s my job to help prepare them for that journey by assisting them in becoming as healthy as possible in body, mind, and spirit. Not only does getting healthier often increase your chances of becoming pregnant, but according to the tenets of Chinese medicine, healthier parents make healthier children. And that’s my goal.”

Stephanie Gianarelli (LAc, Dipl.Ac, Dipl.CH) is a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM) and a licensed and national board certified acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist. Stephanie received her Master’s degree in Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1999. She also completed post-graduate training in acupuncture and Chinese herbology focusing on gynecology at Zhe Jiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Hang Zhou, P.R. China. She founded Acupuncture Northwest in Seattle, Washington in 2000, in the same building it is still in today.

Meet Lora.

“As a reproductive endocrinologist, I provide the kind of care I would want for myself, my family, and friends. Difficulty having a family is an intimate and personal challenge—medically and emotionally. I provide a caring, personal approach in a practice which provides the most advanced technology, up to date care, and high success rates.”

Lora Shahine, MD, FACOG, practices at Pacific NW Fertility and IVF Specialists in Seattle, WA, and completed her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Stanford University. During her time at Stanford, Dr. Shahine served as a Clinical Instructor in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, contributed to several research publications on women’s health and infertility, and trained in one of the few Centers for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss in the United States.

Dr. Shahine is board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility as well as in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is a fellow in The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of The American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), The Washington State Obstetrical Association, The Seattle Gynecology Society, and The Pacific Coast Reproductive Society.
