Dear Jacqueline,
I want to express my gratitude to you - for your healing acupuncture treatments, for educating me on the emotional and physical aspects of the meridians and chakras. For your very easy to get along with demeanor and sensitivity.

I feel like I'm getting multiple therapies when I see you, and for such reasonable rates!

Thank you for being such an open-minded, gentle, insightful healer. You are the best acupuncturist I've been treated by in the last 20 years!

I feel a kindred spirit in you. Thank you for all that you have done, and continue to do, in aiding my healing - body, mind, and spirit.

With gratitude, D.
Jackie, I am so impressed by your kindness, generosity and the compassion which you combine with a truly sensitive healing skill and touch. Wow. We are really fortunate to have you with us at the Amethyst Healing Center - you are a treasure!

I feel so much better than I did even less than 24 hours ago; it's amazing. I only wish I had come to you sooner and next time I will. I can't believe that you came to my house, brought everything with you and that you spent so much time and really listened to me. You came up with such a good combination of Chinese herbs and acupuncture and I was amazed how quickly I started improving.

You are a true healer and clearly have a major calling for this work, for which the rest of us can be truly grateful. I look forward to working with you on an ongoing basis and can see that you will be of great assistance to me as I continue to make health improvements in my life.

I am in tears of gratitude as I write this - thank you so much.

Background & Education at Emperor's College

Branches of my family are drawn to Eastern Medicine.  I have a cousin, Dr.Goran Car who is an acupuncturist and a western medical doctor practicing in Zagreb, Croatia. 

I'm proud to be a graduate of Emperor's College in Santa Monica, California. Emperor's College is considered one of the most spiritual, creative, and scholarly of the Traditional Oriental Medicine Colleges. Given the many healing practices our college taught, there is an emphasis on meditation. We would meditate for ten minutes at the beginning of each class to settle into our hearts.

The day of graduation from Emperor's College Jacqueline's class was asked to take a Healer's Oath. The last principles spoke deeply to her: "Cultivate myself so that I might serve my patients and the world more effectively. Recognize that all true healing is healing of the Spirit."
