About Marcie Hamrick:
I am a graduate of Rice University (BA Wildlife Ecology 1995) and Baylor College of Medicine (MD 1999). I moved to Seattle in 1999 for a residency in Family Medicine at Swedish Hospital and became a board-certified Family Medicine physician in 2002.
Since then I have worked in busy urban primary care offices, rural Alaska, inner city community health centers, and an integrative medicine clinic. I have taught western medicine to acupuncture students at the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine, and I have supervised naturopathic students at the Bastyr Center for Natural Health.
I have a strong interest in mind-body and holistic medicine:
-Received yoga teacher certification in 2006 in the viniyoga tradition, a gentle, therapeutic style
-Attended the Professional Training program in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through Jon Kabat-Zinn's Center for Mindfulness in Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center
-Attended the Center for Mind Body Medicine programs "Food as Medicine" and "Mind Body Medicine"
-Attended STENS biofeedback training program and now provide biofeedback as a treatment option for many stress-related health conditions
-Facilitate "Mind Body Medicine" course at the University of Washington Medical Center
In my free time I enjoy hiking and camping, kayaking, cooking, XC skiing, running, yoga, and hanging out with my sweet geriatric dog Ruby.
