Tassy Hennessy, L.Ac., MSTOM, Diplomat AAPOM, B.S. Neurobiopsycology, brings a diverse knowledge to her practice that involves a long history, since 1989, in the Western healthcare system as well as a blending of Eastern healthcare teachings since 2002. This diversity is coupled with an ongoing desire for continuing education, creating a holistic way of diagnosing, treating and educating patients. The beauty of this integration provides an environment where patients can obtain an understanding of their health condition, regain control of their wellbeing by becoming a proactive participant and obtain the most well-rounded care from the two health care systems.
From Ms. Hennessy’s very first biology class in high school, she knew that discovering “How it all worked, from the smallest particles to the largest know systems of the body and beyond.”, was her passion, curiosity and joy, which became a life time of inquiry.
While attending school, Ms. Hennessy worked as an EMT on a 911 response ambulance in Northern California. Moving to San Diego to study Biology and Neurobiopsychology at UCSD, she worked at Scripps La Jolla/Trauma Center in the Emergency and X-Ray Departments and volunteered in Gastroenterology Department. She also worked at UCSD Medical Center in the Hyperbaric Department, going inside the 14 person chamber, attending to patients during their treatments. After her double Bachelors at UCSD, Tassy started a Wellness business while at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine then went on to receive her Masters degree, MSTOM, from PCOM in Acupuncture, Herbology and Chinese Physical Therapy, receiving her Board Certification in 2002. During the years at UCSD and with the hospitals, Tassy also volunteered for 7 years with the San Diego Mountain Rescue Team, which responds with the San Diego Sheriffs Dept. to emergencies in cities as well as in wilderness and mountainous areas of San Diego County and beyond. After graduating from PCOM, and receiving her Acupuncture Board Licensure, Tassy continued her studies and received her Diplomat degree and board certification with the American Academy of Physical Oriental Medicine, AAPOM. Ms. Hennessy currently continues her education in the fields of Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Neurotransmitter Biology, Orthopedics, Psychology, Immunology and Laser Therapy.
Among other things, Tassy has a wide variety of extracurricular interests that involve many outdoor activities like running, surfing, hiking, rock climbing, swimming, scuba diving, horseback riding and tennis, but has never turned down the opportunity to play any sport, given the time; ice hockey's next on the list. She loves going home to Northern California to visit with her awesome family, looks forward to seeing new places and is interested in meeting a variety of new people; especially when it involves a travel destination anywhere close to the equator. She adds a bit of freedom, excitement and fun to her life by sport-bike riding, participating in competition shooting matches, archery and cooking great meals with friends. She continues to learn and collaborate with colleagues by attending medial, oceanographic and environmental lectures and seminars all around the world. Tassy enjoys her two other businesses that blend creativity, science and metaphysics.
