About Leslie Jafarace L.Ac., FABORM
Leslie Jafarace, M.S.O.M., has long been involved in helping people return and restore balance and wholesomeness to their lives. After several years of instructing yoga, she took the first steps towards embracing holistic medicine as a career when, in 1997, she became a Licensed Massage Therapist for the state of South Carolina (1997-2012). Seeking to further her depth of knowledge in and passion for the healing arts, she moved to Austin, Texas in 1999, and began attending school at the internationally recognized Academy of Oriental Medicine at Austin (AOMA).
While at AOMA, Leslie studied in such diverse fields as Oriental Herbal Medicines, Herbal Nutrition, Internal Martial Arts, and Oriental Body Work, among others. Four years and much hard work after beginning her studies, Leslie graduated from AOMA in 2003 with a Masters Degree in the Science of Oriental Medicine.
After graduation, Leslie decided to take her knowledge out into the world, so to speak. Over the following several years, her work took her to many interesting places. For example, she has practiced her art in England, at the elite Elemis Spa in London. She also spent a couple of years working aboard various cruise ships, combining her love of her work with her love of travel. Leslie returned to the Grand Strand area in the spring of 2008, and has been glad to have the opportunity to once again practice here at home, in the Carolina Lowcountry where she grew up.
She completed her speciality training in Oriental Reproductive Medicine 2012 and was awarded membership in the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine. She has worked with many Reproductive Endocrinologist in our area.
In 2015 she was nominated and approved by the South Carolina Medical Board of Examiners to serve on the state's Acupuncture Advisory committee. She currently holds the position of vice-chair.
In 2016 she also completed the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of Manhattan's integrated Oncology program.
Her hopes are with continuing her education, and that the citizens of South Carolina will experience a more well rounded approach to their healthcare in whatever issues they may be facing.
