Staff Consultants

We work to support you, for the long term, in your life’s journey. Licensed practitioners contracted with the clinic have as much as 30 years experience in utilizing Oriental / Natural Medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and nutrition. There is in-depth understanding of Western and Veterinary Medicine as well, with referrals available as needed. Many MDs, DOs, DCs and dentists refer their patients to this clinic for cases that respond well to our methods and for alternative medical support and evaluation.

Staff practitioners have included Dr. Jay Sordean, LAc, OMD, CTN, QME; Dr. Michael Gleason; and Dr. Dave Penney (retired). Consulting / referring practitioners in the veterinary acupuncture and chiropractic arena are also available for consultation.

Dr. Jay Sordean, LAc, OMD, CTN, QME
I’m a wellness consultant, professional acupuncturist, herbalist, nutritional therapist, and homeopath.  I have dedicated my time and energy to this because I love helping people get better with natural methods.  Put my clinical expertise and talents to work for you to help you regain your life.

I’ve studied with the top teachers in these fields over the past 30 years, and I continue to learn and study to help you live better and longer.  If I can’t help you I will refer you to other practitioners, or coordinate care with a team of others who can.

To help as many people as possible, I conduct lectures and seminars on many health topics in the community; I’ve also taught advanced courses in Japanese acupuncture and immune enhancement to other acupuncturists and healers. Because Japanese is my second language, important parts of my study and training were done with Masters from Japan.

My homeopathy and naturopathic training has taken me to India, Canada, Europe, and Japan. In 1983 I was licensed in acupuncture in California; I also am licensed in Indiana, where I was born.

I have had national acupuncture certification in the U.S. since 1985.  My qualifications include specialty training and evaluating work injuries–I am one of the few California acupuncturists who are Qualified Medical Evaluators (QME).  Less than 1% of U.S. acupuncturists have my training and qualifications.
