Susan Hale Jaracz, M.Ac., L.Ac.
Maryland Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist, Chinese Herbalist, Certified facial rejuvenation acupuncturist.
I have a Master of Acupuncturist and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Chinese Herbs from the Maryland University of Integrative Health in Laurel, Maryland. I am current a doctoral student at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. I also have a Bachelor in Management and Associate of Science in Intelligence Operations degrees.
I am a general practitioner of Chinese medicine, and I am firmly dedicated to helping you be the best you can. I have specialized training in NADA detox protocol, addiction, physical and emotional trauma, sleep, and Lyme and parasitic infections. I have done focused research on classical and contemporary literature to treat traumatic brain injury (TBI). I have successfully treated people with anxiety, depression, and behavioral health diagnosis. I have helped with chronic pain, reproductive issues, migraines, chronic colds, and heart conditions.
Additionally, my bodywork incorporates craniosacral and myofascial unwinding in a system called Dynamic Body Balancing, which restores organ function and relieving pain by restoring structural integrity.
Before studying Chinese medicine, I was Active Duty Army for nearly 13 years and more in the reserves. I am a paratrooper and have served through three combat deployments and spent much of my time studying people-focused skills. I have served in the capacity of teaching leadership, sexual assault prevention, and resilience skills. Currently, I serve as a Army Reserve Career Counselor. While active duty I served as a Casualty Assistance Officer, as well as volunteered for Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors and have experience in grief work and helping people move through other emotions. During this part of my life, I studied a great deal energy healing and focused my orientation and cultivation and the healing of others in what is sacred and meaningful, for them and me.
In the army, I was taught to be the leader you would want your loved ones to serve under, be that all-encompassing that you couldn’t find someone that you would rather them serve with. I believe this carries on into Chinese medicine. I am solution oriented and research specifics for my patients, learn skills to integrate to make their life better, and continuously cultivate my skills in the treatment room by being focused and present.
Book an appointment if you want this kind of dedication in your life.
Currently in the process of relocating my practice to Afton, Wyoming.
