Dr. Jorge Nunez graduated as a veterinarian from the National University of Mexico City in 1989 and worked for the mounted police in Mexico City for five years. While working in a refugee camp in Guatemala, he experienced the power and simplicity of acupuncture, which was being used as community healthcare in that remote environment. This is where the idea of making Chinese medicine accessible for underserved communities first took seed.
He moved to the US and pursued a Masters of Science in Chinese Medicine at the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences (ACCHS), where he is currently a Clinical Supervisor.
Dr. Nunez has maintained a practice for over 15 years in Oakland, treating both humans and animals. He lives in the East Bay with his two children, who keep him on his toes, and is addicted to salsa dancing and chi gong.
