Jen has been an instructor of the ZGTN method of Chinese medical massage for over 10 years. She has taught Tui Na and Qi Gong in the US, Canada and Europe. She is adjunct faculty at Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine and Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine as well as a guest instructor for Rosemont College in Montreal. Jen came to TCM through the practice and teaching of the martial arts. Her 25 years of movement studies led her to investigate theories of the body in Chinese medicine and in meditation practice. An international champion and nationally-renown martial arts instructor, Jen opened her TCM practice in Oakland, CA, where she also was the Executive Director of a community martial arts center. At Hand To Hand Kajukenbo, she combined Chinese medical theory with the practice of martial arts, qi gong and meditation to investigate the path of healing and empowerment through movement, and continues to lead Internal Arts trainings there. Jen is also a founding member of the Global Alternative Healthcare Project, one of the first organizations to offer TCM-based medical aid internationally and domestically. She volunteers in Indonesia, Nepal, Navajo Nation (AZ) and Jackson Hole, WY to offer free, high quality care to communities in need. Jen’s educational background includes a B.A. in Semiotics from Brown University and graduate work at San Francisco State University in Cultural Studies. She is nationally certified with the NCCAOM in Chinese herbs and acupuncture, and is licensed North Carolina and New York.
