    THE 12 MERIDIANS

    What exactly is a meridian anyways?! The ancient doctors of China discovered that there are pathways throughout the body in which energy travels. They called this energy Qi. Our modern understanding of the myofascial system compliments this ancient system and, together, they offer an enriched way of understanding the body.

    Traditional medicine meets modern application

    "I've been a practicing acupuncturist for 7 years now and this course has been a fantastic resource for new techniques as well as a general expansion of topics I learned years ago in school. Dr. Jess does a great job of applying traditional methods and theory to a modern understanding of anatomy and physiology. It's the perfect blend of technical instruction with regular demonstrations. I would highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in acupressure, massage or traditional medicines."

    Eric Stretch

    "I really enjoyed the course it was really interesting from beginning to end."

    Ashley Lindberg

    Amazing quick course on Acupressure

    "I am an aspiring Acupuncturist who is taking classes at the moment. I really enjoyed this course. It does not go too in-depth with traditional Chinese medicine as TCM theory takes a life time to learn, however, it teaches just enough to allow massage therapist to safely incorporate acupressure into their treatments."

      Dr. Jess Reynolds, Dr. Ac, DTCM, RMT

      CO-FOUNDER Academy of Integrative Medicine

      Hey! My name is Dr. Jess Reynolds (but I mostly go by Jess). I am a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Integrative Medicine, an Acupuncturist and a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT). My practice has been tremendously gratifying, and through it I have had the opportunity to work with many people — helping them heal, body mind and spirit. Through my practice, I soon discovered my true passion: teaching. I have been teaching in the classroom for the last seven years, and have been told by students and colleagues alike that it is my purpose. The focus of my lectures has been Psychology, Personal Growth, Nutrition, Orthopedic Assessment and Functional Medicine. My passion, however, is in self-development of any kind. I am a true believer in becoming the best version of yourself.  


      Between my clinical practice and teaching experience, I have gained a wealth of knowledge in the world of health and wellness, but I offer more than that. I am an avid outdoorsman, adventure lover, and seeker of truth. I use skills and knowledge from many fields of study and interest to provide my students with unique, down-to-earth, and always informative lectures.
