About Meredith

Meredith is a RYT200 and graduate of Gina Caputo & Kathryn Budig's Aim True: Integrated Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2014.

She discovered yoga while living in Charleston, SC in 2008 and it quickly became her sanctuary. The time spent on her mat has given her the tools understand herself and the world around her better, and for that she is grateful. Her style is playful, but introspective; challenging, but purposeful. Her mission is for you to leave feeling more whole and balanced than when you walked in (and have a big smile on your face).

About Dr. Jen Jackson

Dr. Jackson graduated from Southwest Acupuncture College, where she studied with Dr. Ehrland Truitt, learning the gentle, yet powerful form of Traditional Japanese Hari-Style Acupuncture. Dr. Jackson has also studied Hari-Style Acupuncture with master T. Koei Kuwahara, L.Ac. Dr. Jackson had the opportunity and privilage to travel and study in Japan with her lineage of master acupuncturists in September of 2011 and April 2015. During both of these trips Dr. Jackson not only continued her studies in Meridian Therapy treatments for adults in Japan, but she continued her studies in Pediatric treatments, as well. Dr. Jackson was able to continue her studies with Masanori Tanioka Sensei, one of the leading acupuncturist of Pediatric treatments in Japan. 

Hari-Style Acupuncture is an unique form of Japanese Meridian Therapy. It is a form of acupuncture that focusses on treating the root cause of disease while also effectively treating the immediate symptoms through balancing the body’s Ki. Practitioners of Hari have developed an ability to perceive ki through the practice of pulse diagnosis, and ki diagnosis. Refined and specialized needle techniques are used to help search out and move the body's ki.

Dr. Jackson has also studied at Community College of Rhode Island, where she trained in Massage Therapy and has over 10 years experience in that field. Over the 10 years, Dr. Jackson has studied multiple different massage styles and body work. Her heart and hands were drawn to and love practicing Craniosacral Therapy. She studied CST with the Upledger Institute in the beginning of 2007.

At Ocean Ki Acupuncture, Dr. Jackson looks forward to assisting her patients in finding the balance and harmony they are searching for through the use of the Japanese Hari-Style Acupuncture, Craniosacral Therapy and Massage Therapy.
