Jessica Hardy, L.Ac. (licensed acupuncturist)
Jessica couldn’t be more thrilled to be doing community-style acupuncture! After running her own private clinic for 3 years, Jessica had the opportunity to open a Community-style acupuncture clinic. Jessica jumped on that opportunity because she knows the group healing energy and the affordability of this model is how she wanted to practice Traditional Chinese Medicine. Every day at Meeting Point Community Acupuncture Clinic, Jessica is thankful to be treating so many people with a wide variety of health issues who might not have been able to afford acupuncture otherwise.
When not working at the clinic, Jessica might be running, mountain biking, telemark skiing, taking her pups for a walk or run or possibly looking for the next adventure.
Jessica has a Master of Science degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine. She studied at Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver and the International School of Oriental Medicine in Beijing, China. She is licensed in the state of Colorado and is nationally certified as a Diplomat in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
