Jen Bookout is a board certified and licensed acupuncturist and herbalist. She graduated summa cum laude from Emperor’s College in Santa Monica, California, received advanced training at Providence Hospital’s Disney Family Cancer Center under the direction of Dr. Robert Chu, and teaches the biomedicine module for the NCCAOM board exam with TCM Review.
Growing up in Indiana, Jen had never heard of acupuncture or herbal medicine, but she knew there had to be another way to heal the body besides taking a pill and hoping for the best. She was initially drawn to Eastern medicine because of its surprising combination of simplicity and completeness. She discovered that this medicine is all about creating balance and that it takes into consideration the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. She believes that we begin where we are, without judgment, and move towards this balance with some support when we need it.
Jen is experienced in treating a wide range of conditions including pain, injuries, musculoskeletal issues, stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, women’s health issues, fertility, cervical ripening, pregnancy-related issues, headaches, allergies, and digestive issues. She uses acupuncture, herbs, cupping, Tui Na, Gua Sha, Reiki, Aroma Acupoint Therapy®, nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes to help her patients achieve their best health.
