Jennifer Nery graduated from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in September of 2009, with a special emphasis on Chinese medical research. She began her practice on State Street in Northampton in April of 2010. In November of 2011, she started CLINIC Alternative Medicines, so that she could better serve patients by bringing together a broader range of wellness resources under one roof, on Main Street in Northampton. She is actively involved in improving Northampton community life, especially with her involvement in the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce, where she serves as a member of the Board of Directors.
Jen. is a general practitioner with special emphases on pain issues and emotional and psychological stress. She loves working with stressed-out women.
Jen. is a fairly ‘feely’ acupuncturist. She believes that patients do best when they not only passively receive treatment, but when they are also able to tune in to their body and experience the changes taking place. She finds it’s also important to learn to differentiate between the natural, physiological experience of change— even intense change— and pain. Her goal is to have patients get off the table feeling better every time, and to build on that progress from appointment to appointment. She walks the line delicately between encouraging comfort and a meditative, restful moment, and aggressively encouraging change.
Prior to her career in Chinese medicine, she was in academic philosophy. Jen. lives in Northampton with her partner and stepchild and kitty, and loves doing home and garden projects, biking in all weather, pointing at audience members while singing karaoke, and being a contender at trivia.
