Salmon Creek Clinic
The Early Years | Rebecca Zeff is a 2nd generation Naturopath, which means that she had a unique upbringing. Instead of drugs to quell fevers and surgeries to remove tonsils, her childhood illnesses were treated with hydrotherapy, homeopathy, and herbs. From an early age, Rebecca was fascinated with the natural world and natural cycles. Curious by nature, she got accurate and informative answers to the basic questions of life like, “where do babies come from” and “why is the sky blue?” From accompanying her father to harvest medicinal herbs to joining him on house-calls and at conferences, Rebecca has been steeped in natural medicine her entire life.
Not content to wait, Rebecca began helping people live healthier lives by working as a fitness instructor while she attained her undergraduate and graduate degrees. She enjoyed teaching such varied formats as Zumba, Yoga, and Tai Chi, which she still enjoys today.
Clinical Practice | Now a licensed Naturopath, Rebecca is working beside her father, Dr. Jared Zeff, at the Salmon Creek Clinic. Rebecca has a general practice with special interests in chronic pain, sports injury, chronic illness, fertility, men’s health, and teen medicine. As an avid gardener and lifelong athlete, two of Rebecca’s favorite healing tools are herbal medicines and hands-on therapies like joint manipulation and bodywork. In addition to seeing patients, Rebecca often makes herbal medicines and beauty products from homegrown or wild crafted plants. She continues to provide dietary counseling to patients of the Salmon Creek Clinic and manages the clinic’s social media accounts.
When she’s not at work, Rebecca is often pursuing one of numerous goals, which include homesteading, plastic-free living, martial arts, and fitness. She enjoys cooking, eating, reading, dancing, knitting, gardening, and spending time outdoors in the Washington countryside where she lives with her husband.
