Jeffrey

ON HIS BACKGROUND

Jeffrey Medina, L.Ac obtained his education from University of Washington & a MSA (Masters of Science in Acupuncture) from Bastyr University. He then went on to study Nei Jing Acupuncture with Edward Neal, MD of the Xinglin Institute. Nei Jing Acupuncture is especially rare due to difficulty in translating and application of the original text.  The Nei Jing is the first book written on Acupuncture. This study of acupuncture works on restoring and releasing abnormal tissue planes vs. "point prescription therapy" style of acupuncture. This custom type of work does not generalize a specific condition. If you have tried acupuncture before and it didn't work for you, it may be due to a generalized style of point prescription. Nei Jing Acupuncture contains the foundation of acupuncture theory, diagnosis, pathology, and treatment.  If applied correctly, acupuncture can treat not only pain, but also chronic internal illnesses.

 

His 14 years of experience & on going studies of the Nei Jing have given him insight in treating difficult conditions that range from sleep disorders, infertility to even pre-cancerous skin lesions that caused the treating dermatologist to see improvements. 

ON HIS PRACTICE

He believes that so often we accept abnormalities as normalities. Our western culture tells us that having a cold in winter time is "normal", and that insomnia - while not fun is also "normal." With Chinese Medicine, he is able to help heal these abnormalities and bring the body back into balance.
