Jackie Strong grew up practicing kung fu, competing in the US and China before leaving the East Coast in 2006 to attend college in New Orleans. She moved to California in 2011 and enrolled in Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. Jackie became a Licensed Massage Therapist in 2012 and a Holistic Health Practitioner in 2013. In 2014 she opened her private practice in the San Diego neighborhood of Banker's Hill.
Martial arts gave Jackie a foundational physical practice, which she continues with yoga and aerial silks. She became a certified yoga instructor in 2012, and brings her background in athleticism to her work, offering clients self-care practices and exercises to address their individual concerns. In 2015 Jackie co-directed yoga retreats in Big Bear, CA, teaching Qi Gong and partner Thai massage workshops, and cooking real-food meals.
Jackie finds the study of health and the human form to be endlessly intriguing, and will be a lifelong student. She currently studies organic farming and dance, and writes about health in our society.
