Jade Pierce is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist and has been in private practice since 1999 after receiving a Master's degree in 5-Element acupuncture from TAI/Sophia in Maryland and is NC board licensed. She blends her skills in synergetic traditions of acupuncture, herbal and nutritional consulting, bodywork such as massage, acupressure and Zero-Balancing, and movement practices of qi gong and yoga. She currently practices in Burnsville and Spruce Pine, North Carolina.
As well as practicing the classical tradition of Five-Element acupuncture as taught by J.R. Worsley and Robert Duggan, Jade has focused her continuing education in the teachings of Kiiko Matsumoto, renowned Japanese acupuncturist specializing in Hara diagnosis and clearing and Jeffrey Yuen, master of classical Taoist medicine. The blend of these traditions creates a wonderful balance of addressing both psycho-spiritual and physical issues.
Jade’s training in herbalism began in 1992 with her apprenticeship and studies with a variety of master herbalists, including Will Endres, Marcy Shapiro, M.D., Claudia Wingo, RN, AHG and Tom Wolfe AHG. Jade blends the rich traditions of western herbalism with traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic herbal therapy.
Other areas of Jade's special interests include working as a Doula (birth assistant), women's health and treatment of addiction. Jade also has a special love for teaching and has lectured and taught a number of classes in herbalism and Chinese medicine. She was on faculty at the Body Therapy Institute in Siler City, NC and at the Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine in Sugar Grove, NC.
