He has an extensive public health background, working in clinics helping low-income populations and treating people struggling with addictions. He was instrumental in creating the acupuncture program at Serenity Lane, and also helped start a Chinese herb import business in Portland in 1996 that has become a major source of herbal medicine for manufacturers in the US.  He is strongly committed to making the power of Oriental medicine easily available to everyone and is excited to be involved with Community Acupuncture.

After receiving his Bachelors of Science in Human Physiology from the University of Oregon in 2009, Jesse completed the Master of Acupuncture program at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2012. Wanting to work with athletes and weekend warriors, Jesse found his niche in pain management. However, since his years of education and clinical training, Jesse found acupuncture to be extremely beneficial for more than just pain. While still being a pain management specialist, he also enjoys treating stress, anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders, and women’s health. He is very committed to finding the root of a patient’s issues, and believes that community acupuncture is one of the best settings to utilize the foundations of acupuncture in order to heal his patients.

Tonya Tigart received her masters of science in Oriental Medicine in 2009 from Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, NM. She has also received advanced acupuncture training in Harbin, China where she studied at the Hei Long Jiang University Hospital of TCM which specialized in post stroke recovery treatments.  In 2011 she opened the first community acupuncture clinic in New Orleans, LA where she performed thousands of treatments on a diverse population who may not have had access to alternative care without her clinic. Tonya specializes in treatments for pain, neurological conditions, stress and anxiety, post stroke care, infertility and other women's issues. It is her desire to help you heal naturally using the ancient yet ever maturing Chinese medicine modalities.

Originally from the East Coast, Courtney received her Master's of Acupuncture from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2014 in Portland. She has since fallen in love with Oregon and made it her home, settling here in Eugene. After working at Portland’s Old Town Clinic providing group acupuncture to low-income patients and people in recovery, she has become passionate about the power of treating in a community setting and feels that healthcare should be easily available to all. She enjoys treating mental & emotional imbalances such as depression and anxiety while also working on physical pain and other internal imbalances. She believes that if you can help someone de-stress and feel better mentally, then your body can relax and start trying to heal itself. Her goal is to help people discover and sometimes re-discover parts of themselves. By balancing your body and spirit she strives to help you be the best you that you can be.

Rebecca received her Master’s of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in her native city of Portland, Oregon. While there, she gained experience treating patients in a community setting through an externship at Old Town Clinic and also treated patients at Mercy & Wisdom Community Health Clinic, which caters to individuals who might not otherwise be able to afford healthcare. Rebecca enjoys treating a variety of conditions from hot flashes to asthma, and anxiety to shoulder pain. She is a NADA-certified “Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist,” which involves treating addiction (like Acupuncture for the People’s Stop Smoking treatments). She has a background in biological/medical anthropology and her interest in the connection between mental/emotional suffering and physical illness has led her to Chinese medicine, as it views mind and body as one. “As an Acupuncturist I can use the tools of Chinese medicine to alleviate this suffering by accessing the body’s natural healing abilities.” She also minored in Spanish and looks forward to speaking it with clients should the need arise.
