Jules Dirsa is a licensed acupuncturist with many years of experience in both individual and community acupuncture. He is dedicated to the healing process of each of his clients, and meets each client where they are at in an open-hearted and non-judgmental way. He utilizes gentle, effective treatments which pull from the tools of Traditional Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbs, cupping) in order to help each client unlock the healing potential within themselves. Jules has a special interest in helping clients with concerns related to fertility, acute and chronic pain, mental and emotional health regulation, and support during times of transition (such as gender transition, transition out of addictions, grief, aging and other major life changes). Jules strongly believes you can feel healthy at any age, any size, any phase of life.
Jules is credentialed as a certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M) by the national board of acupuncture, NCCAOM.
