Dr. Jessica Whelan is a fully licensed Naturopathic physician in the state of Vermont who graduated from National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon. During medical school, she obtained additional training in craniosacral therapy, holistic pelvic therapy, and abdominal massage. She also completed coursework for the natural childbirth certificate.
She is passionate about empowering patients in their own health through education and in encouraging ways to honor and nourish the mind, body, and spirit. She believes that the body holds great wisdom and we can all learn to listen to and trust its messages.
She learned of naturopathic medicine during music therapy school, when the physician teaching the anatomy course took her aside to reveal his new found discovery of this field and encouraged her to look into it. Upon reading up on the profession, she knew that journals of soul searching were answered; this was her path and calling.
