About Us

Jill SweringenJill A. Sweringen, PT, DPT, L.Ac, Dipl. Ac., OM (NCCAOM), CKTP

Jill received her B.S. in physical therapy in 1985 from Finch University/The Chicago Medical School, now called Rosalind Franklin University. She worked in hospital-based clinics for 13 years in addition to seeking out alternative healthcare practitioners with whom to study. Jill returned to graduate school at the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 1997 and completed her master's degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2000. She became a licensed acupuncturist in California and nationally certified in 2001. In recent years, Jill attended Northeastern University and completed her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2017.

Jill has since studied Constitutional Facial Renewal through The Chiakra Center and was spa-certified in 2003. She was drawn to the work of reducing or eliminating fine lines and increasing muscular tone in the face as a way to balancing core health and enhancing beauty from within. In 2010 she completed her training and became a Certified Kinesio Tape Practitioner.

Jill uses a mixture of Western and Eastern medical approaches, including myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, microcurrent, acupuncture, and/or Chinese herbal medicine to treat a variety of medical conditions. Her treatments are specific to the needs of her patients on any given day.

Blending my Western medicine background with the Eastern philosophy of overall health and well-being gives me great tools with which to better assist a person in reaching a successful outcome.
