Jackie Bensinger 5/1/19
Jackie has had a family acupuncture practice in San Diego for nearly 25 years. She has dedicated her life to healing work and educating folks about how natural and western medicine can work together for the best result for the patient. After graduating from acupuncture school, she apprenticed with a Taiwanese master of acupuncture for eight years gaining graduate studies in acupuncture, herbal medicine, Qigong and Feng Shui. In addition to her degree in Chinese medicine she has a B.A. and two years toward a M.A. in the arts plus certifications in Reiki healing and Qigong. Although Jackie lives in the city of San Diego she is at heart a country girl from a small town from Southwest Virginia with a big message and passion about the power of natural medicine.
Jackie’s practice includes Chinese herbal medicine, anti-oxident supplements, medical Qigong treatments and the use of the Class I medical device call the Bemer, best known for increasing small vessel blood flow. Her specialties encompass the treatment of pain, immune and stress-related disorders, and female and male infertility.
Ms. Bensinger’s treatment style is a body, mind, spirit approach that is personalized for every patient. Jackie likes to quantify the condition (pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, or whatever the treatment is addressing) in order to clearly communicate the number of treatments needed to resolve the condition. As the condition improves, the number of treatments reduce from twice a week to weekly to every other week, etc. At this point, a “tune up” once a month is suggested.
In addition, Jackie does Feng Shui consultations for the home and office which may correlate with health issues. She holds events in her office at the equinoxes and solstices teaching about the meaning of the seasonal changes. At these events and nationally she has taught Feng Shui, Qigong, meditation and tips on staying healthy using the anti-inflammatory diet and Chinese medicine.
Jackie has appeared on local television on several occasions speaking about the value of Chinese medicine, had her own radio show called “Pathways to Vitality” and hosted a local internet radio show about health and healing. She edited an acupuncture textbook and has written several articles on how Chinese medicine addresses specific conditions.
