Jake Daumen, LAc, MTCM
Jake has been practicing Chinese medicine in Portland since 2006 and has focused his skills to specialize in auto accident and sports related injuries. His formal training culminated in a Masters degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2005 from Five Branches University as well as a certification in Integrative Sports Medicine, a program where he was fortunate to be able to learn the innovative treatment protocol of Muscle Channel Technique (MCT) directly from it's developer Frank He L.Ac. He also completed extra training in Tui Na massage and Medical Qi-Gong, as well as studying with Tui Na master Dr. Jiang at Zhejiang University Hospital in Hangzhou, China. Jake always tries to find the best path to health and recovery for each patient individually and utilizes several approaches in his treatments integrating the classical techniques of acupuncture, cupping, auricular therapy and herbal medicine with more modern treatments such as kinesio-taping and electro-stimulation. Patient comfort is also of utmost importance to Jake, as he believes that the patient can connect with the healing process more efficiently in a relaxed state, and he has spent his entire educational and professional career perfecting a free hand needle technique that is smooth and comfortable for the patient.
