Jessica Bolding, MS, LAc. Specializes in family medicine for all ages, and also women’s health, including gynecology, obstetrics, fertility, menopause, hormone changes in young women, weight loss, and cosmetic acupuncture. Jessica graduated from Brenneke School of Massage in 1996. In June of 1999, she finished her training at Bastyr University with a Masters of Natural Health Science in Acupuncture. Some of Jessica’s favorite times during her internship were experiences at the hospital in Chengdu, China’s University of Chinese Medicine. This inspired Jessica to learn Chinese and spend the following two years working in the Chinese Medical Departments of local hospitals in China and Taiwan. During this stay, her primary home was on a small Taiwanese island named Penghu.
Oriental Medicine is a complete and comprehensive medical system that has been used by a major portion of the world’s population for more than 3,000 years. One modality of this system is acupuncture. Oriental Medicine’s most attractive qualities is that there are no serious side effects, and no or very few minor side effects. Acupuncture needles are not like needles used in standard hospitals. They are very thin and rarely uncomfortable. Most people find acupuncture very relaxing, and all needles are sterile and discarded after each use. At PRAHM, you are in safe hands. A licensed acupuncturist has completed close to four years of postgraduate work. Training requires proficiency in both western and eastern medical sciences. Acupuncturists must pass a national board exam.
It never ceases to amaze me how tranquil I feel when I am on Jessica’s table.
Jessica has such a natural, full presence that positively influences each meditation session. The style itself is quite liberating...so good to do whatever comes naturally and tap into a deeper, more primordial self.
I have been getting acupuncture for over 20 years and have seen several acupuncturists. I have been satisfied with all of them, but a treatment from Jessica is head and shoulders above the rest.
Jessica is an inspirational and amazing teacher who kindly guides me closer to myself... I cannot express the gratitude that I have for who I have become as a result of working with her.
