Jessie Lubke, LAc, DiplOM, MATCM is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist, and Physician of Eastern Medicine.
Jessie grew up against the windy mystical backdrop of West Texas, a salt-of-the-earth, no-nonsense land of cowboys and tough women. She grew up admiring how her father, both a farmer and a pharmacist, balanced his scientific medical mind with his devotion for working with the land and the elements. Her mother, as a vocal advocate and educator for children with special needs, inspired her to teach from her heart and to offer compassion and inclusion to all beings.
Jessie offers patients the best of both ancient wisdom and application of new scientific research, combining her ongoing study of Classical Chinese Medicine with the evidence-based model of functional medicine. Jessie’s approach as a primary care physician is to view your body as a part of an interconnected whole, a functional continuum of your environment, your diet, and your awareness. As a lifestyle educator, she is passionate about teaching skills and techniques that will deeply nourish you.
Jessie completed a one-year residency at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles as part of the Pediatric Pain Management team led by Dr. Jeffrey Gold. Her training for this position included extensive training in the gentle and precise palpation techniques of Kiiko Matsumoto style acupuncture with Monika Kobylecka, LAc. As a student of Daoist Priest Dr. Jeffrey Yuen, Jessie is ongoingly immersed in the application of the Chinese medical classics to modern autoimmune, endocrine, and neuropsychiatric disorders. Jessie's private practice is in the Cheviot Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. She travels monthly to her hometown of San Angelo, Texas to see patients and replenish her cowgirl spirit back home at the farm.
Jessie earned her Masters degree at Yo San University in Los Angeles, California, one of the nation’s top graduate schools for Traditional Chinese Medicine. Her clinical training included an observation apprenticeship at Tao of Wellness alongside Drs. Daoshing and Maoshing Ni, 38th generation medical practitioners and Qi Gong masters. With high honors including the Alumni Scholarship and Dean’s Award, she completed her four-year medical training at the top of her graduating class at Yo San University.
Jessie began studying medicine as a chemical engineering major at The University of Texas at Austin. She changed her educational track after studying abroad in Kunming, China as a Western medical student examining the integration of traditional healing modalities in China’s public health system. Intrigued by the promise of complementary medicine for the American medical system, she began intensive study of Mandarin. She completed a double major in Chinese Language and Plan II Honors, a prestigious humanities core curriculum, returning to China to complete a field study and thesis on indigenous cultures in rural China.
Jessie offers her medical practice as an expression of gratitude to her teachers, her family, her ancestors, and the great sages of Chinese Medicine.
