Jaclyn Angela Heneghan L.Ac
Jaclyn A Heneghan is a board certified Diplomate of Acupuncture through the National Certification Commission of Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). She is licensed to practice in New York. Jaclyn feels very blessed to have grown up understanding the value of nature, high quality whole foods, preventive medicine and gratitude. Losing her role model and holistic minded grandmother Angela at a young age, ignited her fascination with herbs and healing. Jaclyn is currently in school for her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. She holds a Masters of Science and Chinese Medicine from Pacific College of Health & Science and a Bachelors of Arts in Anthropology with a Cultural and Ethnic Concentration from The University of Montana. Her undergraduate program allowed her to study a passion of hers, getting to know people from all walks of life and being privileged to hear each of their unique stories. While studying abroad in Nicaragua, she was alarmed at the lack of healthcare available, something we often take for granted in the States. She was able to combine her appreciation of nature as medicine and compassion for those in need to improve the well-being of people from all backgrounds. Jaclyn feels such appreciation, bliss, and honor being part of others healing journeys.
Jaclyn uses acupuncture and related modalities to reduce stress and pain, improve circulation, digestion, sleep cycles, and to help patients find that elusive sense of well-being that we all seek to have in our day-to-day lives. Her specialty is in treating acute & chronic pain, pediatrics, autoimmune, digestive and anxiety disorders. Jaclyn works with pediatric patients from newborn to teenagers, as well as elderly and immune compromised patients using a variety of non-invasive techniques such as Tui Na massage, as well as Shonishin. Shonishin is a Japanese style of acupuncture that is needle free and employes gentle instruments to stimulate meridians and acupuncture points. Shonishin has been the main treatment for keeping children healthy for the last 80 years in Japan.
Outside the clinic, Jaclyn holds a strong belief that life requires balance, which she finds through spending time in nature with her family. The mountains and ocean are her happy places, but she's over the moon to find any patch of grass or woods to ground herself. Along with yoga, a good cup of tea, a really good book, cooking and baking plant based treats, camping and hiking, traveling to new places, stopping to smell the roses, and impromptu dance parties with her partner and children.
