Elena Jenkins graduated from the Swedish Institute, A College of Health Sciences three-year Acupuncture program in New York, NY with a Master of Science and Bachelor of Professional Studies in Acupuncture. She interned at the school’s Yu Wen Acupuncture Clinic and completed a term at the AIDS Clinic of Queens County (ACQC) in Long Island City, NY.

Elena is nationally board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM); she holds a Diplomate of Acupuncture. She is also a member of the Acupuncture Society of New York (ASNY) and is certified in First Aid and CPR.

While interning at the Yu Wen Clinic, Elena had the privilege of participating in an important film project whose main aim is to educate the viewing public about the many facets of acupuncture. A poignant and beautiful documentary that sheds light on acupuncture’s diverse strengths through moving personal stories and testimonials, a link to a YouTube clip of the premiere segment of this work-in-progress film may be found here. Many thanks to Heather, a long-time patient of Elena's, for agreeing to participate in this important project.

Elena came to acupuncture school as a result of her personal experience healing with acupuncture. Having been diagnosed with a serious chronic illness, she turned to Chinese Medicine for treatment, in which acupuncture was central. She strongly believes in acupuncture’s power as a standalone medicine and, given her experiences, is particularly suited to understanding both the newcomer to acupuncture as well as the seasoned devotee, having walked both paths in her own journey to wellness.

Before enrolling at the Swedish Institute, Elena graduated from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick, NJ with a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Minor in Russian Language and Literature. She worked in education and publishing prior to entering the healing arts.
