Jana Brady, L.Ac., Dipl.O.M., C.SMA

I was born and raised in Arkansas and received my undergraduate degree from the University of Arkansas in 2003. My experience with acupuncture began when I tried it for my own pain.  Following a hip surgery, I was left with unusual pains and was offered a variety of pills to try to take the pain away.  I didn't want to go down that path and like most people, I was skeptical of acupuncture, but after trying it was astounded by the results. Not only did those little needles rid me of the pains I had been having, I felt like I was floating on cloud nine after the treatments. After learning of all the things acupuncture and herbs can treat, I knew what I was going to do with the rest of my life.

I spent 2008-2011 attending the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Tucson, Arizona.  I spent over 3,300 hours in classes consisting of Chinese medical theory, anatomy and physiology, acupuncture and moxibustion, Chinese Herbs, tui na, qi gong and clinical rotations.  I received a Master's degree in Acupuncture and a Master's degree in Chinese Herbology and then passed four Board exams to practice in Arkansas.

 

My family's love of the Ozarks led us back to Fayetteville to open Steel Creek Acupuncture in January of 2012. Since being back, I have organized The Natural State of Health, a yearly  natural health and wellness fair in Fayetteville.   I am also currently serving as Vice President of The Arkansas State Board of Acupuncture and Related Techniques.

I have always desired more knowledge in how to best treat pain and injuries and in October 2015 I became Certified in Sports Medicine Acupuncture®.This was a year long program consisting of 238 hours of anatomy, orthopedic assessment, postural assessment, advanced needling techniques for injuries, myofascial release, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and corrective exercises for muscle imbalances.   These techniques can be applied to work, orthopedic or sport related injuries and can also help prevent future injury.

This year I am taking a break from organizing the The Natural State of Health because I was accepted as a Doctoral Candidate at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.  I am taking online classes in addition to running the clinic, and hope to be Dr. Jana by the end of 2017.
