Welcome to the historic Gilbert District!


Katharine Stewart, Licensed Acupuncturist for over 28 years, has recently relocated her practice from Arizona, after years of missing coastal living.

Katharine graduated from the Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine. She moved to Arizona as one of the founding faculty members of the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture, where she also served as Clinic Dean, Acupuncture Chair and Clinical Supervisor for over ten years.

She has worked closely with many health care providers such as naturopathic physicians, nurse practitioners, pediatric nurse practitioners, midwives, physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and yoga instructors.

She believes that healing is an art, and there are many paths to achieving good health. Acupuncture can be one of many powerful healing modalities, and works beautifully with them all.

In Seaside, Katharine specializes in acupuncture done in a small, group setting for the very affordable rate of $25-45, (sliding scale).

Group, or Community Acupuncture, is a way to offer the incredible healing benefits of acupuncture to most everyone.

In fact, acupuncture done in a group setting is the way it has been practiced in China for thousands of years.

Katharine is passionate about making acupuncture affordable, effective and painless.

The art of BEAVER TALES, Seaside sale and exhibition, opening May 6th, 2017. And, too, quite a few of the appointed artists and selected guest speakers arrive, as well.

To celebrate beavers and their contribution to the ecology of the North Coast, The Wetlands Conservancy, Necanicum Watershed Council and North Coast Land Conservancy have partnered with local businesses to host the Beaver Tales Art Exhibit and Sale in Seaside, Oregon.

The exhibit opens on May 6th, as part of the Seaside First Saturday Art Walk, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. Beaver-themed art will be available at the Fairweather Gallery (612 Broadway), at the adjacent Pop-Up Gallery (608 Broadway), and at Beach Books (616 Broadway). The exhibit will be on display at all three locations through the end of May.

The traveling exhibit includes artwork of al kinds, from paintings to fiber, wood, stone, glass and ceramics. With regional and local artists displaying their work, this stop in Seaside will bring together a multitude of styles and creativity.

Along with the month-long display, there will be workshops, tours, and other activities around Seaside. The exhibit will feature juried art for purchase, benefitting the three nonprofit sponsoring organizations listed above.

The goal of the exhibition is to recognize the aesthetic and ecological significance our state animal plays in the creation and maintenance of wetland habitats. Beavers, though woefully misunderstood, actually create and sustain wetlands that aid in resuscitating wetland and riparian stream habitats. They play a central role in shaping our future as we prepare for transformations that a warming and changing climate may bring. The sponsoring organizations are working together to learn more about how we can work with beaver to conserve and restore natural systems.
