Jesse Blazo, L.Ac., M.S.
Jesse gracefully fell into the healing arts world while living in Thailand in his early 20‚Äôs. A simple curiosity opened the door to Daoist internal organ massage (Chi Nei Tsang), which led to his pursuit of Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, herbal medicine, qi gong and martial arts, astrology and music. A deep desire was awoken to care for his own body and dedicate his life to sharing this precious knowledge with others in their own quests for sustainable health and well-being.
Fast forward 10 years and Jesse is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist with a special emphasis on fusing acoustic sound with the yin-yang principles of Chinese medicine. In addition to acupuncture, herbs and bodywork, he offers tuning fork and sound harmonization sessions that restore the body‚Äôs energy fields as well as vitalize the physical body.
Experience has led him to specializing in treating chronic and acute pain disorders, stress reduction, emotional balancing, fatigue, digestive regulation, menstrual irregularities and fertility. Jesse loves working with people of all ages and especially enjoys helping¬†children balance their emotional and physical well-being.
Jesse holds a Masters Degree in Chinese¬†Medicine from Five Branches University Santa Cruz, has spent time studying in Hangzhou, China and is a certified Tama-Do practitioner of sound, color and movement. In addition to being a practicing clinician, he maintains a healthy appetite of ongoing studies with various high level masters of their respective arts.
The tradition of Chinese medicine involves passing on knowledge from accomplished teachers to dedicated students. It is this process that allows the torch of wisdom and beneficial knowledge to shine unto the world with integrity. With deep gratitude, Jesse recognizes the many teachers who have shared their light along his path of ignorance to awakening. Fabien Maman and Terres Unsoeld, Liu Ming, Dr. Alex Feng, Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson, Tassanee ‚ÄėCoocky‚Äô Boonsom, Brian LaForgia, Jim Grantham and all my spiritual allies – you are a warm wind in the cool night. Thank you.
Dan Eng first came in contact with traditional Chinese healing arts through his studies of¬†ancient Chinese philosophy, culture and language at Harvard. He began training formally in traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in 2006 at¬†Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago and continued his training¬†at American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco. Dan holds a Master’s degree in TCM, a California acupuncture license, a certification in Oriental Medicine (including¬†acupuncture and herbal medicine) from the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and a certification in Chinese tui na massage. Besides private practice, he has also treated patients in several different community clinics, hospitals, and residential healthcare facilities. Dan is currently pursuing¬†a Ph.D. in classical Chinese herbal medicine under the tutelage of¬†renowned herbalist Dr. Huang Huang at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine.
Experience, study and careful observation have led Dan to appreciate the incredible richness of thousands of years of healing wisdom, as well as the benefits it offers to those who are ready to receive. Clinically, his focus is on individualized treatment — his methods emphasize the patient and¬†not merely the disease. His work is guided by the belief that in the vast majority of cases, a person’s innate ability to heal can be stimulated using relatively¬†simple¬†interventions and natural medicines¬†provided by the Earth. Dan enjoys using his skills and knowledge to share the fruits of the¬†age-old healing traditions of China with people today, whether they are gravely ill or relatively healthy.
