ABOUT

Jennifer Glynn
MAcOM, Dipl. O.M.(NCCAOM)®, L.Ac.

From Jen:    This practice is all about YOU, but I understand most people want to know about their practitioner before getting treatment so here is some information: I'm a New Orleans native who decided to become an acupuncturist after I had acupuncture and herbal medicine treatments to fix multiple health problems I had.  A born skeptic, when I saw that lab results were changing just from using acupuncture and herbal medicine, I was convinced.  I sold my house and moved to Austin to attend 4 years of AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine.  

As to why I do what I do,  it is because I love to solve problems and I want to help people in despair. I know the anxiety that comes from having a chronic medical condition. As much as I can, I want to help people out of that feeling, and back up to feeling hope, joy, and zest for life again.  I spent much of my life working in Western Medicine clinics and I am happy to help explain things your doctor has told you, or to collaborate with your physician.  Western medicine and East Asian Medicine each have their place and it doesn't have to be one or the other.  

 

I love to treat low back pain, wrinkles, shingles, allergies, constipation, cedar fever, effects of aging, headaches, stress, PMS, hormonal issues, low libido, the common cold, sinusitis, joint pain (knees, elbows, frozen shoulder, wrist and ankle), anxiety, and grief. Any condition that began after a loss or difficult emotional time in your life is a particular specialty of mine.

Acupuncturists are trained to treat everything, however, so don't hesitate to bring me everything else.  The only things I don't treat are female infertility and sports injuries (if you're not willing to rest it a bit) but I will happily refer you to practitioners who do to get you the care you need.  acupuncture therapist

Using acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to help people transform their lives, make them happier and less stressed, and renew their joy in life is my Ikigai.  I think I am one of the luckiest people in the world for finding it and having the privilege to do it.
