Portland Acupuncturists Jane McKee and Jeremy Jacks
Jane McKee , MAcOM, LAc, Healthcare Clinical Director
In 1981 I graduated from the University of Oregon with a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. After getting married, having a child, and moving to Portland, I returned to graduate school, earning a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 1994. This was the culmination of a long-standing desire to study and learn acupuncture. I have continued to study extensively since my graduation with my mentor, Dr. Richard Tan.
I also utilize the principles of nutrition and herbal medicine in my practice. I want to help each person take an active role in his or her treatment decisions and feel in control of the process. An exchange of information enhances the process for a successful outcome.
Jeremy Jacks, MAcOM, LAc
I was exposed to Oriental medicine as a teenager, after being advised by a number of Western Medical specialists to no longer play sports because of debilitating knee pain. The experience and success of the alternative treatment changed the way I viewed medicine forever.
I have a Bachelors of Science in Biology and a Master’s from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. I then continued my education in China, and was fortunate to study under doctors with over 50 years of experience: Dr. Xu, a master herbalist and head of the department of Gynecology, and Dr. Wang, head of the Acupuncture department at the Nanjing Municipal Hospital.
