Jenna has always been fascinated with holistic medicine.

The success of these remedies fueled a curiosity that allowed her to explore Eastern Medicine in depth as she completed 2248 hours of didactic instruction and 960 hours of clinical training. She received her Masters in Eastern Medicine at Five Branches University, San Jose. She is currently enrolled in the doctorate program as well.

She had the opportunity to work closely with PTST, pain management, stroke rehabilitation, fertility, insomnia, stress, and women’s health. She finds it most rewarding to be able to help people optimize their health and improve their quality of life.
