I am a career healthcare provider with a 23-year Western medical ICU background prior to entering the field of acupuncture/TCM. My experience as an RCP-NPS at some of the top teaching/research hospitals in the US - and abroad - uniquely informs my integrative approach to treatment. For the past 12 years, the practice of TCM has allowed me to bring the most modern scientific understanding to the truly comprehensive holistic approach on which this ancient healing system is premised. I received my MAOM in 2012; completed doctoral studies at Five Branches University San Jose in 2023. I practice in both the Wash DC and Tucson areas.

As a retired professional ballet dancer, I have dedicated most of my life to the study of movement. I have always been fascinated with the human body and how it works. Once I stopped performing, it seemed only natural that I would gravitate toward a profession in the field of bodywork. Acupuncture was always helpful to me while I was dancing and I felt that practicing this amazing medicine would give me the opportunity to help others in the same way I was helped throughout my career. I am always excited to meet new patients and to help them reach their health goals!

I practice Chinese and Japanese forms of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. I am a licensed Diplomate of Oriental Medicine. I have full raw, granule, and patent herbal medicine pharmacies at my clinic at Tucson Natural Medicine Center. Acupuncture, herbs, and lifestyle modification were the dominant healthcare in Asia for thousands of years. Ancient doctors had the foresight to document their medical practice. It is not surprising that conventional medicine is looking back to this tradition for solutions and acupuncture has been the leading "alternative" medicine for years. I practice Oriental Medicine in a clinic on East Broadway. Oriental Medicine is safe, effective healthcare.

"Fall down seven times, get up eight" sums up my approach to healing. I specialize in Japanese Acupuncture which uses more subtle techniques as well as polarity. I have written a book "Grasping the Gecko by the Tail" on Japanese Acupuncture and teach at the Asian Institute. My style of acupuncture is very effective treating pain & structural issues, but also supports health & well being. Clients have said about my treatments: "Jean was the best experience. She's gentle & calming. ...after only one treatment, I felt relief." "Jean is dedicated, compassionate and has a unique talent with Japanese Acupuncture."

I find that many times I see patients who have exhausted what they can get from Western medicine and are now reaching for alternative treatments. They are always amazed at what can be done to help when we get to the root cause with remedies as simple as herbal teas, changes in nutrition, or accupuncture. By working with my patients both spiritually and physically we have been able to accomplish some rather remarkable results.

Acupuncture in Tucson - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Tucson acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.

Credentials for Tucson licensed acupuncturists?
A licensed acupuncturist in Tucson needs a minimum of two years college education and must complete three years of professional training and pass the State's approved licensing examination. The three year program includes both theory and hands-on clinical practice. Most States' professional training programs are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
