My acupuncture practice focuses on the relationship between your physical and mental health. If you have ever noticed a physical response to an emotional situation, or if your moods are significantly influenced by the way you feel physically, you may want to consider acupuncture. These two aspects of your well-being are intimately connected, and acupuncture and Chinese medicine provide a way to nurture both, allowing you to heal fully. My practice makes use of many Chinese medicine modalities, which gives you multiple tools for improving your health.

Customer Testimonials

My husband and I tried to get pregnant for 5 years prior to my treatments with Jessica. We believe her acupuncture treatments and prescribed herbal formulas were the key to our subsequent pregnancy and the birth of our daughter Frances. Jessica's treatments were caring, thorough, and supportive.


Last fall I began to have an upset stomach and I was emotionally upset. I thought acupuncture might help because I didn't feel
western medicine was going to cure me. After doing a search on the internet, I began to read Jessica's bio. Part of her philosophy is to understand how emotions can effect a person's well-being. After being a patient of Jessica's, I feel my life has stabilized emotionally, and physically my health has improved. I look forward to my treatments as a place where I can relax from this chaotic world.


While I initially sought out acupuncture treatment to address specific problems, I quickly learned that it offers even greater benefits in creating whole body balance and wellness. Since I have gone to see Jessica my mood, energy levels and overall health have improved. She is a caring, thorough and skillful professional.
