Namasté feng shui is a business concerned with your health and well-being through acupuncture, yoga, feng shui, reiki, nutrition, and organic cooking.
Jen Yocum is a behavioral neuroscientist at Johns Hopkins University whose background is in the effects of natural and complementary medicines (such as gingko biloba, red wine components, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids) on learning and memory in models of stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.
In September 2010, Jen graduated from Tai Sophia Institute with a degree in acupuncture, and is now a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Maryland. She enjoys helping her patients find more ease in their lives on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. She is currently accepting new patients and looks forward to partnering with you in this process.
Jen is a certified feng shui consultant, and completed training in 2003 under feng shui expert Hope Karan Gerecht, author of Healing Design: Practical Feng Shui for Healthy and Gracious Living, and pupil of Grand Master Lin Yun, the first person to bring feng shui to the Western world. Jennifer has been trained under the Black Hat Tantric Buddist (BTB) style of feng shui, as well as in flying star feng shui. She has been focused on scientific research but is now looking to expand her feng shui practice and hopes you will be a part of this special flowering time in her career.
It was during her feng shui training that Jen began to cook vegan meals for her teacher as a barter, and realized her passion for cooking. She uses her scientific background and learning to integrate beneficial ingredients into her prepared dishes, and recommend healthy options for all lifestyles. Whether you are vegetarian, vegan, meat eater, or on a special diet, Jen is well prepared to cater to your needs and respects your individual beliefs.
In 2006, she completed training to become a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 200 level (RYT 200), and teaches at various locations in Maryland. She is also available to teach private and semi-private yoga lessons.
Jen also completed level 1 training to become a Reiki practitioner in 2008, and is taking on new clients at a discounted rate! Reiki is a form of hands-on (or off if preferred) healing that is done with the person usually laying down, fully clothed. Reiki energy is passed through her hands to the client, bringing balance and comfort. A client may expect to feel a warm and/or tingling feeling as the energy is passed on to them, and may experience healing on the mind, body, or spirit level.
Partnering together with Jen, you can improve your health on the levels of mind, body, and spirit, and work toward achieving your goals in life!
