As a Practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Hey there! My name is Jessica De Leon. I am first generation Guatemalan- American, fluent in both English and Spanish, and a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. I earned my Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Yo San University in Los Angeles. I was fortunate enough to train in multiple clinics ranging from the Venice Family Pain Clinic to volunteering at Being Alive in West Hollywood ( a clinic dedicated to providing treatment to HIV patients). In 2015 I took part in intensive and advanced clinical training at the Acupuncture Academy in China: The China Beijing International Acupuncture Training Center, and the Institute of Acupuncture and Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences. After focusing so heavily on Traditional Chinese Medicine, I chose to also study and become a Practitioner of Esoteric Acupuncture. This allows me to focus and treat the mind, body, and spirit on a much, much deeper level. I do my best to apply a little of Esoteric and Traditional Acupuncture to all my treatments.
Ever since I was a little girl, I always knew my calling was to help others. It wasn’t until a few years ago that my family began to share that my great grandmother in Guatemala was also a healer- a medium, herbalist, and energy worker. Imagine my surprise! I am very passionate about this medicine, not only because of the incredible changes and improvements that come from it, but because it awakens a new path to wellness. One in which we address the body as a whole, not just a symptom. And my favorite part? You become equipped with the tools to prevent pathogens from invading the body. This medicine is so beautiful. I aim to serve the needs of my patients through compassion and care, education, and improving the quality of life to create health in our community. I look forward to joining you on your path to wellness.
