Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most widely used medical practices in the world. Originating in China over 2,000 years ago, it is a safe and effective medical treatment that promotes natural healing of the body.
Acupuncture is based upon the belief that regulating, circulating, and balancing the energy in the body relieves pain and promotes optimal health and vitality. The treatment involves gently inserting hair-thin, single-use, sterile needles into specific points around the body. The points are chosen for each individual based on symptoms presented, constitution, and health history. The skillful stimulation of the needles directs and rebalances the energy of the body, thus promoting the desired positive effect.
Acupuncture is a deeply relaxing experience. I provide a spa-like environment with a welcoming ambiance, water features, soothing music, and hot rocks to promote the release of stress while encouraging your body to heal. You will leave with a sense of deep peace and calm, and your body will love the results.
Meet Our Acupuncturist
Jenni Lund, M.Ac, EAMP, ERYT
She comes to Urban Oasis after moving from Leavenworth, WA where she has owned and operated a private practice since 2001. She is also a co-founder of Snowcreek Health Center in Peshastin, WA.
Her epiphany to become an acupuncturist came in 1997 in Kathmandu, Nepal. After receiving her 200-hour yoga certification in 1995, she embarked on a nine-month pilgrimage to India and Nepal, seeking out the roots of yoga and wanting to immerse herself in the practice. It was during one of her classes that she was exposed to Chinese Medical philosophy, a moment that ultimately changed the course of her life. After receiving a Master (Yogacharya) Certificate from the Yoga Training Centre in Varanasi, India for completing 1,000 hours of yogic training, she returned to the USA, and enrolled at the NW Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle, WA, completing her Master’s in Acupuncture in 2001.
Her continuing studies are primarily with Dr. Richard Tan, and and Dr. Tran Dzung, M.D. She also has a great interest in Matrix Energetics and the healing power within.
Jenni specializes in pain management and relief (including arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines and headaches, MS, injuries, sciatica, low back, neck, shoulders and pain caused by tension), as well as allergies and asthma, colds and flu, any kind of chronic inflammation, stress reduction, anxiety, and overall well-being. She also enjoys working with, and is successful at treating fertility, cancer support, preventative medicine, and persons who have ‘tried everything’ and are still not healing.
Her passion for all aspects of her work comes from living a life that has asked her to follow her heart. In doing so, she shares with you her joy for health and vitality, while gently encouraging you to restore your health, and live life to the fullest!
My childhood experiences sent me on a path of discovery and exploration. On my quest to learn about the world, I was eventually led back to my Self; first through yoga and then via acupuncture. I deeply believe in the power of the body, when balanced, to heal itself; my passion to understand this more deeply is now my life’s work.
“I found Jenni to be not only a well-trained acupuncturist, but a healer…” D. Baroch, Leavenworth, WA
“Her approach is reassuring because there is such a depth of knowledge that is apparent from the start.” H. Knight, Cashmere, WA
“I saw tangible results after the first session, with continued improvement after each and every visit.” T. Timpe, Leavenworth, WA
