I have had so much on my plate lately that I haven’t been able to focus on doing one of the things I love so much- teaching people about the powers of herbalism!
That is why I am so happy to announce I have scheduled 5 upcoming herb classes. All classes will be held at Urban Sanctuary at 2745 Welton Street Denver, CO 80205
Tuesday Feb 28th
Intro to Herbalism
This donation based class is offered to give you a brief overview of western and Chinese herbal energetics, aromatherapy, and plant spirit medicine. I’m interested in knowing what the community wants to learn about so I can offer classes according to your needs. A 4-part herbal series begins Thursday March 16th.
Thursdays March 16, 23, 30, April 6
4- week Community Herbalism Series
This is a 4-week series that will include Western & Chinese herbal energetics, aromatherapy, herbal medicine making and plant spirit medicine. Please come with an open mind and an open heart. Drop-in available is the series doesn’t fill. Limit is 15 people. $50/series, $15/class
I’m also hosting a Community Acupuncture clinic to offer services to those that may not be able to afford a private session.

Community Acupuncture Clinic
$10-20 suggested donation, Walk-in only
Your session will be in the yoga room. There may be up to 8 people receiving acupuncture at the same time. You will be lying on a mat, supported with blankets and bolsters. Auricular (ear) acupuncture will be provided and body points may be used in some cases. The intention of this community acupuncture is to help heal the collective trauma we have all experienced. More community acupuncture clinics to come. (photo credit: AWB)
Being in Denver has been a drastic change from my rural lifestyle of northern California. The opportunity to step away from daily clinical work and the stresses of running a thriving practice have given me time to write, formulate and come back into myself as Jessica, instead of the professional self of “Dr.” Baker. It has been an insightful transition, as I’ve reflected on my own insecurities surrounding all the aspects of who I am and why I am drawn to working with plants and people.
I have missed the one-on-one counseling of my clients as well as the community vibe of group acupuncture. That is why I’m so happy to announce that I will be seeing clients at Urban Sanctuary. I’m offering private sessions of Western and Chinese herbal consultations, Aromatherapy sessions,and Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
Beginning in March I will be hosting one Community Acupuncture sessions a month! Urban Sanctuary is a perfect location,. Being a yoga studio, there is plenty of space to lay down on yoga mats, breathe and allow your body to heal. I will also be able to hold classes on herbalism, Chinese medicine and anything else I’m inspired to share. The intention of my work is to help empower others to heal themselves so that our larger community will benefit in ways that can be hard to imagine.
I’m really stoked to be a part of Urban Sanctuary, a boutique wellness studio that offers yoga, meditation, workshops and
traditional health care services in the 5 Points community. The founder, Ali Duncan, created the sanctuary as a way to encourage and educate people on the powers of preventative health and self-healing. Learn more about Urban Sanctuary and all they have to offer.
Call me at 707.499.8587 to schedule an acupuncture session or herbal/aromatherapy consultation! I’m honored to be part of healing and uniting our community.
