I began my journey into acupuncture after witnessing how much it helped my daughter Karli. I am thankful for all that I learned through her experiences and recovery as it prepared me to be able to more fully help my second daughter, Jaymie, during her health crisis a few years later.

Often times our greatest learning comes from the most challenging times, as our greatest growth comes when we are outside of our comfort zone. I have walked alongside all three of my daughters as they have battled Lyme disease among other co-infections, which allows us the opportunity to continue to learn and grow.

My medical background originally began in the Western medical field and I have had the opportunity to learn a lot through working at hospitals locally and in foreign countries. I have a desire to bridge the gap between the East and the West philosophies of medicine to bring about a deeper level of healing and wholeness. We all have something unique to offer and share. 

Several years ago I was paralyzed from the neck down due to a traumatic brain injury resulting form chemical poisoning and Lyme disease, without a promising outcome of recover. During this time I discovered acupuncture and the amazing benefits it has to offer. God utilized acupuncture as a huge part in my healing journey and that is what inspired me to pursue this field of study. I am thankful to be apart of a field of medicine that incorporates lifelong learning!

Jaymie Poage, LMT

A few years ago I was in a coma due to a traumatic brain injury and acupuncture has been my primary mode of healing that opened me up to new experiences and changed the course of my direction. God provided transformational healing in my life through the form of acupuncture, massage, physical therapy, and craniosacral therapy among other modalities that were extremely impactful in my recovery process. These experiences are what have shaped my journey into massage and future goals of attaining certification in craniosacral therapy and physical therapy assistant.
