Dr. Katie Rose found naturopathic medicine the hard way- after coming to a point in her own health where her conventional physicians said they had “reached the end of the road” in their treatment options. The irony was that this statement marked the beginning the road leading Dr. Rose to a career devoted to getting to the root cause of disease and utilizing compassionate medicine that treats the whole person. Dr. Rose was born and raised in Tucson and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Arizona with a bachelor of science in physiology and minor in chemistry. Dr. Rose received her doctorate in naturopathic medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ, with an emphasis on anti-aging therapies, women’s health and pediatrics. Prior to attending the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine Dr. Rose worked as a physical therapy technician and personal trainer.

At The Motive, Dr. Rose sees patients of all ages for Oro Valley’s only community acupuncture. All treatments are individualized with the goal being to assist the body in healing itself.
