Jennika Wildau, L.Ac., Dipl. Ac.
Jennika Wildau has been in practice for 14 years and has worked as an Aloha Wellness Associate for 9 years. She received her BA in Anthropology from the University of Virginia in 1996. As an outgrowth of her studies in Medical Anthropology, Jennika went on to earn her MS in Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder. Jennika is professionally trained in Japanese-style acupuncture, Auricular Acupuncture, Cosmetic Acupuncture, Asian bodywork & manual medicine, Hot Stone Massage, and Chinese Herbal medicine. She has been fortunate to have received extensive post-graduate training with 2 senior masters of Traditional Asian Medicine – the late “Doc” Rosen, and Jeffrey Dann. She specializes in the treatment of pain, mental-emotional disorders, and adolescent care. Jennika’s unique treatment style often combines acupuncture with manual therapies such as Sotai (a form of Japanese physical therapy), non-insertive techniques of Japanese Meridian Therapy, and Hot Stone Meridian Therapy (hot stone massage) to treat chronic soft tissue disorders, and to integrate the energetic effects of acupuncture into the physical body.
Jennika is also a “movement therapy” junkie, and is inspired by all forms of movement therapy, including Yoga, Gyrotonics, Feldenkrais, and dance. She is constantly exploring the relationship between movement and the traditional Asian concepts of meridians, the 5 elements, organs, yin, yang and qi. She uses her personal explorations in these movement therapies to inform the way she treats and educates her patients.
I am dedicated to working closely and cooperatively with physicians and other medical specialists in order to complement and enhance conventional treatment methods. I believe that alternative and conventional therapies can work synergistically to treat difficult conditions by obtaining more profound and enduring results than what can be accomplished by using a singular approach.
An individual’s constitution determines how illness will manifest and which factors are likely to trigger, accelerate, halt, or reverse the disease process. The goal of employing a constitutional approach to medicine is to identify the themes and tendencies in a patient’s medical history, in order to assess and directly treat one’s inherited strengths and weaknesses through the use of diet, exercise, acupuncture, and herbs. My intention is to help my patients develop lifestyles and habits that are appropriate and beneficial to their constitutional nature.
