Jamee Pineda, acupuncturist & herbalist

Jamee Pineda, MAcOM, L.Ac.

I first came to this medicine as a patient at a community acupuncture clinic. I was a student at the time with no health insurance and it was the only form of care that I could access on a regular basis. At first I was skeptical of sitting in a room with a bunch of strangers and getting poked in my hands and feet. I had no idea it would have such a profound impact on my life. Not only did my symptoms improve, but I pretty quickly became fascinated and infatuated with this medicine.

My favorite thing about Chinese medicine is its adaptability. It is thousands of years old in part because of its adaptability and comprehensiveness. When I am treating someone, I take into account the different aspects of their life. Then together we can create a treatment plan that works for them. Too busy to come in for appointments twice a week? Let’s do herbs and have you come in every other week instead. Do you have back pain and a fear of needles? We can do tuina instead. Chinese medicine is an art as much as a science and working creatively with my patients is one of the joys of this job.

I treat a variety of conditions ranging from pain, digestive, psycho emotional, sports injuries, etc. I have a special affinity for working with patients from communities of color and/or are LGBTQIA-identified. This includes mitigating the side effects of hormone therapy, pre- and post-surgery support, managing anxiety and depression, and providing trauma-informed care. It is important to me to create safer healing spaces for folks who surviving the effects of structural oppression in its many forms.

I am pro work-life balance and it is an ongoing process for me. My current movement practices are Argentine tango, yoga, and qi gong. When I want some still leisure time, I lounge with Primm the doberman and indulge sci-fi/fantasy shows or books. N. K. Jemisin and Octavia Butler are my current favorites. If I get to choose my last meal, it’ll be biscuits and gravy.
