About Jacqueline Fusari LAc

I have always been passionate about helping others. I received my Associates degree in Sign Language Interpreting and my Bachelors degree in Deaf Education. During my time in college, I had the opportunity to work at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine, FL. 

 

After working as a sign language interpreter for 10 years, with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community in various capacities, I knew I was ready to take the next step in my journey of helping others. This has always been a core value of mine.  My experience with acupuncture helped me understand that I could merge my desire to help people and facilitate healing and transformation with Acupuncture. 

I decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine, earning my Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, MAOM, from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2021. During this time, I spent over 800 hours in the clinic with patients. I am nationally board certified in Acupuncture and Herbology, a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, and a licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist in the state of Connecticut. 

 

In 2022, I relocated from Oregon to Connecticut with my partner and dog to be closer to family. My practice is located in Avon, Connecticut. I am fluent in American Sign Language and, in my practice, I seek to provide an experience that is accessible and inclusive for all.

In my free time, I enjoy knitting, doing puzzles, going for walks with my dog, practicing yoga, and sitting on my porch enjoying time outdoors. 

Having overcome my own health issues and challenges, I am drawn to this holistic medicine that works with the body’s innate ability to heal. I love collaborating with my  patients to help restore sustainable balance.

I specialize in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture and Micro Needling.  In addition, I am also passionate about treating musculoskeletal pain, migraine headaches, anxiety, and symptoms associated with PMS, PMDD, and menopause.

My Approach to Healing

Each of us has the innate ability to heal. I collaborate with my patients and support them as they move through their healing, towards homeostasis. I provide various modalities of East Asian medicine to restore balance and promote overall wellness. My intention is to create a safe, inclusive space for each patient to feel better and heal in a way that is meaningful to them.

I am attentive to the patients' reasons for seeking care and provide  individualized treatments to address the underlying causes, as well as, relieve symptoms through the use of natural medicine.

I strive to communicate clearly and in a timely manner, while maintaining confidentiality and respecting the privacy of each patient.

I seek to create a supportive, nonjudgmental environment and provide education on cultivating healthy habits and a lifestyle conducive to the outcome each patient wishes to achieve.
