Biography

Jasmine Rose Oberste is a licensed Acupuncturist and nationally certified Herbalist practicing in San Francisco and Berkeley. In 1999 she began studying Tai Ji with Sifu Gene Chen who inspired her to develop a direct relationship with and understanding of Qi, the bridge between the un-manifested and the physical. This journey led her to pursue a 4-year Masters degree in Chinese Medicine.

After graduating in 2004, Jasmine has continued an intensive course of post-graduate study, including a four-year internship with Dr. Robert Johns, OMD, LAc, author of The Art of Acupuncture Techniques in Berkeley, California and an internship in 2007 at the Chinese Medicine Department of the Tzu Chi Buddhist Hospital in Taiwan.

Jasmine treats common complaints of pain and stress related illness as well as working with many chronic and challenging health problems where Western medicine offers limited healing, where she finds both herbal medicine and acupuncture to be especially helpful in these deeply rooted disease processes to restore the mind and body to a balanced, relaxed and energized state of health.

Jasmine brings to her work an integrated perspective of complementary healing modalities. She has completed advanced studies in Pulse Diagnosis with Brian La Forgia, LAc, a teacher of the Shen-Hammer system based on the teachings of Dr. John H. F. Shen, and has apprenticed with Liu Ming studying the Chinese calendar (*ji q * 節氣) and seasonal diet therapy.

In addition to her private practice, she has taught comprehensive review class at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, CA covering theory, diagnosis, acupuncture, single herbs and herbal formulas and teaches the herb module of California State Board prep course with TCM Review.

In her free time, she enjoys rock climbing, photography, pottery and playing music.
