Jennifer Potthast, L.Ac.
Jennifer Potthast was awarded a Masters degree in Oriental Medicine from The Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College, Berkeley, in 2005. While at that institution, Jennifer had the good fortune of studying with such teachers as Hua-Ling Zhu, L.Ac., Mary Stewart, L.Ac., and Dr. John Yeh, M.D. In 2006, Jennifer passed the California State Board exam and received her license to practice acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Jennifer’s practice began in the bay area, where she treated patients of the Cooperative Healing Center in Novato, Ca. In 2008, Jennifer returned to her hometown of Santa Barbara to pursue her dream of making acupuncture affordable for all, and along with her business partner, opened Downtown Community Acupuncture in November of 2009. She is delighted to be a part of the network of patients and practitioners who make Downtown Community Acupuncture an oasis of affordable, natural healthcare for all.
