Jamie Bender, L.Ac, DAOM


Dr. Jamie's passion for healing led her down a 20+ year journey of studying neuromuscular therapy, yoga therapy, nutritional therapy, herbal therapy, corrective exercise, acupuncture and Chinese medicine. This pathway keeps her endlessly fascinated as there is always more to learn about the body and each person presents their own unique puzzles to solve.

Jamie graduated from the Crestone Healing Arts Center with 650 hours of massage therapy training in 2000. In 2002, she completed her yoga teacher training at The Mount Madonna Institute and her certificate in herbal studies from The Northwest School of Botanical Studies.

A traumatic knee injury shifted her attention to orthopedics and injury rehab and furthered her fascination with helping the body heal. She then began studying neuromuscular reprogramming (NMR) and exercise rehab. After 10 years with an injury rehab practice, she completed her licensure in Acupuncture and her Doctorate in Orthopedic Acupuncture and Classical Chinese Medicine at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences, Oakland, California.

Jamie teaches the Anatomy Labs for Acupuncturists series that prepares students to get the most out of each Spine & Extremities module.
