Focused, calm and positive are qualities that Laura Wong’s patients use to describe her. As a licensed acupuncturist, she brings this ancient form of healing therapy to seniors as part of their integrated, personal medical care. “My patients regularly tell me that they have less pain, more functionality and vitality in their lives as they progress through their treatment plan,” Laura says. “I enjoy holding a supportive space for them to choose health and nurture the body’s natural healing potential. JenCare has allowed me to bring acupuncture to seniors who would otherwise not have easy access to this beneficial medicine.”
Laura completed undergraduate studies in cultural anthropology at Cornell University College of Arts and Sciences in Ithaca, NY. “After getting my B.A., I began my career in holistic healthcare as a licensed massage therapist and zen shiatsu practitioner,” she says. “Several years later, I pursued my training to become an acupuncturist.” At that time, she moved to Massachusetts to attend the New England School of Acupuncture, where she trained in Chinese and Japanese acupuncture styles, as well as oriental medicine, and earned a master’s degree. Her professional associations include the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Since October 2013, Laura has provided instruction and complementary healing treatments to JenCare patients, helping them prevent or manage a variety of conditions—from injuries and chronic pain to mood, heart, digestive and numerous other disorders.
