    My treatment philosophy is to treat the whole person, addressing all aspects of my patients’ lives. I would like to help my patients bring balance to all areas of the their life, physical/mental/spiritual health, diet, and lifestyle habits. -Jennifer

    In the beginning …

    Becoming an acupuncturist was, for me, like a meandering journey on a scenic highway with several stops along the way. The adventure began with four years in the navy where I literally sailed the high seas. After, in Portland, I indulged my love of food as a chef for 10 years in several well-known restaurants. Subsequently my food focus included a 10 year stint as an organic farmer.

    Working with my hands in food and farming made me cognizant of nutrition as the first line of defense in healthcare. After all, food is what the body understands and assimilates most easily. We take in sustenance from the earth and transform it into energy in order to thrive and survive. Ultimately I determined my natural desire to offer comfort and care would serve a wider audience and be of more value if I pursued the path of Chinese medicine that was already part of my personal health plan.

    I suffered for years from chronic pain. Western medicine offered only short-lived relief. My doctor suggested I try acupuncture and after a series of treatments I felt my body respond and find relief from daily pain. My body healed itself with treatments that have been helping people for thousands of years.

    In service to learning …

    I earned a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAcOM) from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland. I am Oregon State licensed and nationally board certified (NCCAOM) as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine, including acupuncture and herbs. Studies included my special interest in pediatrics, oncology and mental/emotional health.

    I treat patients for the entire spectrum of conditions and ailments including, but not limited to, musculoskeletal, allergies and digestive. Bringing the body back to balance so it may heal itself is the goal I share with all clients.

    I am certified in 1,000 hand Buddha Qigong. I teach classes and also offer one on one instruction. This is a grounding and heart-opening form of Qigong beneficial to all. This practice encourages a sense of calm and peace to the heart and mind and has the additional benefit of improving memory function.

    Adding balance to life …

    I continue to love to cook, especially with the bounty from my garden. I love to play outdoors in all kinds of weather with my beautiful daughter and our dog. The ocean is my soul mate and the garden is my sanctuary. My work is, and always will be, based on passion for life and love of the universe around us. We are one.

     

    Live, Love and Remember!
