HoldingFeetPrior to receiving an education in Oriental medicine, Jessica worked in various capacities of conventional medicine. She was involved with direct patient care programs in emergency medical care, post-operative care, intensive care, post-partum care and dermatology. It was during this time that Ms. Gross realized that while modern medicine had broad and fascinating capabilities; it was not a complete treatment program. She discovered her passion for Traditional Oriental Medicine and found that it offered thorough and effective alternative treatment methods for patients looking for a diagnosis and treatment which is specific to the individual and their symptoms. Through the use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, and life style changes, Jessica strives to offer her patients relief as well as tools to empower themselves and take control of their healing.

Additional services that Jessica offers are facial rejuvenation acupuncture as well as needle-free acupuncture.
