Cory Jecmen, L.Ac | Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
As the son of a well-known practitioner of Visceral Manipulation and CranioSacral Therapy, I have always been familiar with energetic fields and body work. I came to acupuncture as a career after a personal experience in high school as a patient of an Oriental Medical Doctor whose work transformed my life and helped me find a tremendous amount of relief.
My approach is simple and effective. While every treatment is individualized, my goal with every patient is the same – to get to the root of your illness with a treatment that is uniquely tailored to address your specific imbalance. I am keenly focused on alleviating the symptoms that bring you in the door and further leveraging acupuncture’s potential to help you move toward long-term wellness and optimal health.
I am particularly drawn to a team-based and collaborative environment, such as CIH, where complex and chronic conditions are most effectively addressed.
I love spending as much time as possible in the outdoors with my wife and two young sons. An avid runner and fitness enthusiast, I also enjoy alpine skiing whenever I can get to mountains above seven thousand feet.
