As a Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Jessica De Leon is a Board Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist with a Master's Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University, and is a Certified Practitioner of Esoteric Acupuncture. She has completed training at the Orthopedic Specialty Clinic at Yo San, the Venice Family Pain Clinic, as well as intensive, advanced clinical training coupled with seminars at the most prestigious Acupuncture Academy in China: The China Beijing International Acupuncture Training Center, Institute of Acupuncture and Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences. She has also volunteered at Being Alive in West Hollywood, treating patients with HIV who do not have access to Acupuncture otherwise. Having also trained with Dr. Mikio Sankey, Jessica is also a practitioner of Esoteric Acupuncture, which allows her to simultaneously work on the Mind, Body, and Spirit.
My mission at When in Tao Acupuncture & Herbs is to facilitate healing for each patient, with an integrated and holistic approach to healing. To view each patient as a whole, not just as a symptom. Every BODY is different; therefore my treatments are customized to fit the needs of each patient, case by case. I aim to teach my patients about long term self care. I am dedicated to serving the needs of my patients through compassion and care, education, improving the quality of life to create health in our community. I created When in Tao to fill a gap in the world of modern medicine practices. Having a passion for alternative medicine, I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to each patient. Fluent in both English and Spanish, I hope to serve both communities.
Currently, Jessica works with Dignity & Power NOW, an non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources and wellness for all incarcerated people, families, and communities.
