Cory Jecmen, L.Ac | Licensed Acupuncturist
Mr. Cory Jecmen, M.Ac., L.Ac. comes to CIH having worked in various integrative and hospital settings around the D.C area. He is particularly drawn to working in a team-based and collaborative environment, such as CIH, where he feels complex and chronic conditions benefit the most.
Mr. Jecmen’s treatment principles are simple and effective. Although every treatment of his is individualized, his goal with every patient is the same, to get to the root of their illness with a treatment that is tailored specific to that imbalance. He is keenly focused not just on the alleviation of the symptoms that bring someone in the door, but works to leverage acupunctures effectiveness to help patients move towards long-term wellness and optimal health.
Cory chose acupuncture as a career field after a personal experience on his own healing journey. He had a lot of exposure to energetic fields and body work growing up as the son of a well-known practitioner of Visceral Manipulation and CranioSacral Therapy. In high school he became a patient of an Oriental Medical Doctor whose work transformed his life and helped him find a tremendous amount of relief with his own conditions. From those experiences, he decided to dive into acupuncture as a means to satisfy his life-long passion of helping people realize their true potential.
