Healthy Aging

What Is Healthy Aging?

Jennifer takes a keen interest in expanding her knowledge on what will support her patients on their road to optimal health. She is an advocate of the approach that the goal of healthy aging is not merely to prolong your lifespan but to improve your healthspan. As her patient, you can benefit from her unique treatment combination of Eastern medicine processes, working in tandem with longevity medicine and its forward thinking ideals.

Longevity Medicine and the Role of Chinese Medicine

Chinese medicine believes that the aging process is that of ‘Jing’ energy depletion. Jing energy is considered one of the Three Treasures and is the deepest, most vital energy reserve in the body, which is responsible for the ultimate vitality and quantity of one's lifespan.

As we get older, ‘Jing’ energy gradually wanes, which is part and parcel of the natural aging process, and can manifest itself in a number of ways. Symptoms can include back pain, knee pain, signs of premature aging, gray hair, wearing of the joints, weight gain, poor eyesight, and loss of memory.

There are a plethora of Chinese herbs and treatments which have healthy-aging properties and are used to intervene in the progression of aging-associated disorders.

Jennifer believes that in the promotion of healthy aging and longevity, you must start from the inside out. Using Chinese herbal formulas and treatments she can aid in the protection and nourishment of your ‘Jing.’

To make sure you have the appropriate treatment, Jennifer conducts a thorough individualized intake with patients first to discuss their aging goals, and inquires about health history and lifestyles. This initial discussion allows for an in-depth Chinese Medical Diagnosis which then allows for a custom protocol to be developed.

Healthy Aging, Microneedling, LED Light Therapy and Cosmetic Acupuncture

Jennifer uses a combination of treatments including cosmetic acupuncture, herbal therapy and LED light therapy to maximize the benefit on your body inside and out. By targeting different areas for your therapy and utilizing a diversity of approaches she can help you reach your healthy-aging goals.

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction in acne
  • Brighter complexion
  • Reduction in visible pores
  • Improved facial muscle tone
  • Decrease in jaw tension


Jennifer’s microneedling process involves tiny needle pricks using a professional grade AcuMicroPen that creates microtraumas to help refresh and rejuvenate your skin. The technique can assist with treating damage from sun exposure, smooth your wrinkles and may make acne and other scars less visible.

The tiny punctures that occur in the skin during the procedure stimulate the dermal cells to promote collagen and elastin production which gives the skin a more smooth, supple and youthful appearance.

Jennifer also uses vegan herbal serums as part of her treatment such as apple stem cells, which may increase in your skin stem cell vitality and longevity. Apple stem cells are also known to aid in repairing damaged tissues and organs and activate your own skin stem cell regeneration.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture, also called facial acupuncture, is a holistic way to combat the signs of aging. Using ultra-fine needles, Jennifer places the needles around certain target areas to aid in the production of collagen and increase blood flow to the skin. The procedure can also assist with decreasing inflammation, giving you a more youthful glow.

At her practice, Jennifer has created a relaxing and calming environment so you can feel the full benefit of your treatment in luxurious surroundings.

LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a non-invasive and rejuvenating skin treatment that uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) which are special lights that only give off light at a certain wavelength or color. These light waves can penetrate deep into the skin to cause stimulating reactions.

The LED lights emit red, blue and infrared light that acts directly on the deeper layers of the skin.

Red light therapy helps to promote blood circulation, cell regeneration, alleviate pain and improve skin tone, while blue light therapy calms sensitive skin and treats acne.

Infrared light therapy acts on the deeper layers of the skin, promoting blood circulation and alleviating pain. Jennifer uses infrared light to enhance the effects of both of her red and blue light treatments.

LED light therapy can assist with stimulating collagen growth, heal broken or damaged skin and helps to eliminate bacteria to treat acne. Typically patients say they feel their skin has more luster after a treatment.

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 :)

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.

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!
