Meet Jen

Jen Etheridge became interested in the historical use of herbal medicines throughout the world while working as an Archaeologist. After working for several years in the field and studying the use of plant medicines by Native Americans she began furthering her studies with Michael Tierra O.M.D. and the East West School of Planetary Herbology. This involved the in-depth study of Western, Ayurvedic and Chinese herbalism. Jen was very impressed by the history and use of herbs in Chinese Medicine and decided to pursue the study of acupuncture to learn more.

After attending one of the top rated acupuncture schools in the US, Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, New Mexico Jen completed the 4 year program of study and received a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine (M.S.O.M.). Jennifer maintains national board certification as a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (Dipl.O.M.), meeting requirements for both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. She holds current state licensure in New Mexico (DOM) and Vermont (L.Ac.).

Jen has advanced training in the use of acupuncture for facial rejuvenation and dermatology. She enjoys helping patients using herbal medicine and offers both nutritional and herbal consultations along with acupuncture care.
