Jessica Parks, MSTOM, L.Ac., Doula


Jessica Parks is a NY state licensed and board-certified acupuncturist. She believes healing isn’t something that can be done for you but rather a path one travels, occasionally traversing difficult terrain wherein support is a helping hand. Jessica meets her patients where they are and sees her role as a support person who can help to illuminate the way in times of darkness and difficulty.

After working as a professional dancer in NYC for over a decade, Jessica’s belief in the mind-body-spirit connection, fascination with anatomy, and keen interest in helping others to navigate their journeys led her to pursue a career in Chinese Medicine. She earned her Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.

Clinical experience includes assisting women through pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period as a birth doula, and providing acupuncture support in the Labor & Delivery department at NYU’s Lutheran medical center. Jessica specializes in women’s health, perinatal support and fertility, acute and chronic pain management, digestive issues, anxiety, and facial rejuvenation techniques.

Jessica is a lifelong yogi and yoga instructor as well as an outdoors enthusiast. On her off-time you can find her online teaching anatomy to aspiring yoga instructors or in Brooklyn having dance parties with her husband and son.

When not studying, Jayne loves to be outside, spend time with her family, read fiction, and draw.
