Functional Medicine with Marnie McCurdy

Jessica is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist and Massage Therapist. Her path into healthcare began after being introduced to yoga and Eastern spirituality. With a bachelor’s degree in psychology, she was deeply interested in the body-mind connection and inspired by the beauty of a paradigm that looks to the elements in nature to understand disharmony in the body. She received her Master of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine from The Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in 2010 and is nationally certified as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).

From the plains of Inner Mongolia, I am a cosmopolitan. I graduated from China University of Political Science and Law and practiced law in Beijing for seven years. I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and worked as a chef for nine years, taking my career to the five-star Marriott Hotel. But I wanted to do something I could do for the rest of my life, so I graduated from the University of East-West Medicine as an acupuncturist. There is a reason I have always loved learning. No knowledge is ever wasted. Even my vastly different jobs have their intersections. My experience as a chef, for example, gives me a unique perspective on prescriptions and nutrition. My experience as a lawyer has also made deducing illnesses based on details a more familiar process. Learning is a lifelong process, and I firmly believe in that. It serves as an advantage that traditional herbal is so intricate. The knowledge gathered from centuries of practice has fallen upon me to relearn. Such is the reason I believe I will continue on this path for the rest of my life. I have always thought a career of relieving pains, helping people live better lives, and curing illness a divine servitude. Now I have picked up the red cross, the path is arduous, but that has never stopped me before.

“I use a very hands on, collaborative approach. The body is a magnificent revealer of experience. I use my training in therapeutic massage to decipher what the body is holding, and what can be released. I draw from my past dance and choreography experience to find creative ways to integrate movement, bodywork and acupuncture towards your rehabilitation from injury and pain. Drawing from my background in psychology, meditation and Somatics helps me facilitate an embodied presence and guides you toward a deeper understanding of yourself. Chinese medicine reveals connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena of your experience, thus uncovering the root cause of the ailment you are seeking to treat.”
