A Unique Approach to Your Well-Being

Jennifer Ryan, LAc understands personally how chronic and acute pain can leave you feeling anxious and overwhelmed. When she was a girl, she discovered she had scoliosis, a sideways curvature of the spine that can cause discomfort.

Then, during her 20’s, Jennifer fractured her tailbone while snowboarding, which led to an increase in her severe pain. She started to look at alternative ways to find relief that could be used in tandem with Western medical treatment.

After trying acupuncture, Jennifer experienced a vast improvement in her chronic back pain. She also witnessed another benefit - Jennifer experienced relief from a chronic hives condition.

She credits acupuncture, teamed with a prescribed plan of herbal therapy, as the reason she was able to find freedom from these debilitating conditions.

Where Eastern Meets Western Medicine

Jennifer Ryan, LAc is highly proficient in providing Eastern medicine fused with a Western aesthetic approach. She has studied herbal medicine, psychology, Eastern philosophy, anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and spiritual practices. Jennifer also spent 18 months studying psycho-spiritual acupuncture to treat PTSD and emotional issues.

She places great importance on educating patients on aspects of Eastern medicine and how it can be incorporated to support and enhance Western procedures. Jennifer has experienced the benefits of fusion treatments personally and witnessed the results, which has led to her having a unique understanding of her patients.

Longevity Medicine

Longevity medicine, which is part of the sphere of preventative medicine, analyzes how to preserve the quality of life throughout its changing phases.

Using this concept as a starting point, researchers look for biomarkers to measure your aging process. Longevity medicine considers one’s current state of health in regards to genetics as well as lifestyle influences. This allows for intervention practices to be implemented in order to ameliorate the natural course of the body’s maturation.

Jennifer incorporates aspects of this concept by assisting patients in taking preventative measures with care through various Eastern techniques.

Herbal Therapy

Herbal therapy has been used to provide comfort and treat various conditions and diseases for thousands of years. The process uses specific plants and plant extracts for medicinal purposes that are considered to have therapeutic properties.

Herbal therapy is cited as a method of treatment that can assist conditions including asthma, eczema, women’s health concerns, hormonal balancing, stress relief, digestive issues, anxiety and chronic fatigue.

Jennifer works with patients to create a personalized plan of herbal formulas to support the healing process from the inside out, working on the body holistically.

Jennifer has been a major part of my health regime for years. I leave my visits with her feeling so much better every time. She is very knowledgeable about her craft and overall holistic treatments. Beyond providing traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, she's skilled in aroma and crystal therapy. She's helped me balance my hormones and treat my anxiety. I always know I'm in the right hands when I pay her a visit -- she's incredibly personable and easy on the touch.

I have been going to Jenn for several months now, and can honestly say she has helped change my life. She is hands down incredible at what she does. I went in with things like anxiety, stress, stagnation, IBS, hair loss, etc. you name it I had it... Week by week we work together to slowly but surely work on these health issues, and I can absolutely say that her acupuncture techniques, cupping, and holistic advice for my life have made me a healthier/happier person! Even my friends and family have noticed my health turning around :)

J.F. | Verified Patient

I cannot say enough positive things about Jennifer and her healing work. A few years ago, after only two acupuncture treatments,  I could open my jaw pain free - this was astonishing after three months of physical therapy treatments which did not help the issue. I had tried other acupuncturists but never saw such tangible results.

Krysten J. | Verified Patient

went for the first time here- to Jen for acupuncture. I've never had it done before so I was really nervous but she is very comforting and so knowledgeable it made it all good! Really loved the experience and highly recommend if you've always wanted to try but never have- go to her!
