I first met Jen Six when she was one of my students in her first semester at Southwest Acupuncture College. She always impressed me as highly intelligent, with a passion for Chinese Medicine and for helping her patients. I am honored to be able to carry on her wonderful Community Acupuncture clinic, and deeply grateful to all her patients who have welcomed me here in her office.
Julie specializes in pain management/injuries, stress, anxiety, depression, digestion issues, nutrition, chronic issues, and women's health. She received her Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, CO; and Bachelors Degree in Management with a Minor in Human Development from Boston College, graduating summa cum laude. Her graduate program training consisted of almost 3,500 instructional hours, over 1,000 of which were hands-on clinical training, and over 500 hours in Chinese herbal work. Her studies included training in many different TCM modalities, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, e-stim, tui na, cupping, moxa, and qi gong. While completing her education Julie became well-versed in treating a wide range of conditions, taking specialty clinics in orthopedic acupuncture, OBGYN/women’s health, pain management, 5 elements, HIV+/AIDS patients, pediatrics, geriatrics, and tui na. She also enriched her education outside of school by taking numerous additional weekend seminars, most focusing on orthopedic acupuncture.
Being active her whole life, Julie took a special liking to orthopedic acupuncture and has had the special privilege of apprenticing under Whitfield Reaves, OMD, L.Ac, an internationally renowned practitioner, author, and teacher, coordinating his apprenticeship programs. During this time she was able to gain a wealth of knowledge about orthopedic acupuncture and the treatment of many types of injuries, especially focusing on the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle. She is also an ACE Certified Personal Trainer.
In her free time Julie enjoys crafting healthy creations in the kitchen, traveling to places new & old, hiking, skiing, getting sweaty at the gym, and of course, spending time with her family.
