THE EAGLE CAP TEAM
JAMIE KIMBALL, DACM, LAC
For as long as I can remember, healthcare has been a part of my life. As a young girl I knew that someday I would enter the field of medicine. I began college assuming that Western medicine would be my future, hardly aware of the other options out there. During my pregnancy I experienced firsthand the healing power of acupuncture and knew then that Chinese medicine was my calling. Since I began exploring Chinese medicine, I have heard of and seen many people aided and relieved by this amazing medical practice.
I want to help people feel better and live a happy and healthy life. I began studying Chinese medicine after realizing the multitude of valuable “tools in the toolbox” with which I can use to help people. I hold a strong interest in the human body, and I am consistently amazed at the intricacies of the body. As a detail oriented person I wish to optimize treatments by investigating the root problem. Through this the patient will have the most effective treatment possible.
I am a 2014 graduate from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) with the degree Masters of Science in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I continued my education with the Nanjing University of TCM in Nanjing, China where I studied with well renowned Chinese Medicine doctors. I am board certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. I am licensed by the Oregon Medical Board as a Licensed Acupuncturist (LAc).
AMY ZAHM, DAOM, LAC
Amy began her journey into the healing arts more than 20 years ago when she became an advocate for her parents in a healthcare system filled with obstacles. As she supported her parents on their final journeys, she found herself drawn to a more collaborative, organic model of health and healing. The holistic, nature-based approach found in Chinese Medicine offered the perfect fit.
Amy believes in a collaborative approach to healing and sees herself as a guide to help each patient navigate the often winding path toward optimal health and wellbeing. Using acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary recommendations, nutritional supplements and movement and breath practices, she supports her patients as they find balance and learn to trust their own inner wisdom. While she treats patients of all ages and genders, she especially enjoys working with women who are navigating transitions in their lives. She coaches her patients to manage physical, mental and emotional conditions through movement, breathwork, meditation, and relaxation.
Amy received her Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine in 2004 from the Southwest Acupuncture College. She returned home to Wallowa County to open a Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture practice that same year. After 12 years in private practice, she joined the integrated healthcare practice Holistic Health and Healing. In 2019, Amy completed a Doctoral program at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, an advanced practice degree with specialties in women’s health and aging populations. She is happy to be joining the team at Eagle Cap Wellness.
Amy is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She is a nationally certified Diplomate of Acupuncture and Diplomat of Chinese Herbology and a Licensed Acupuncturist. She received additional training in Functional and Integrative Medicine for Women’s Health from the Women’s Functional and Integrative Medicine Professional Training Program directed by Dr. Aviva Romm. In addition to her work in Chinese Medicine, she has been teaching yoga for more than 15 years and is a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. With extensive training in anatomy and kinesiology and therapeutic yoga techniques, she also provides instruction and ongoing support for those living with chronic pain.
LINNAEA MARTIN, LMT
Licensed Massage Therapist and Esthetician
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Linnaea Martin, licensed massage therapist and esthetician. I have been practicing massage since 2007 and esthetics since 2010. I chose these careers to combine two of my passions: helping people feel and look their best, while having the flexibility to have time with my family.
I grew up in Wallowa County and graduated from Enterprise High School in 2004. In 2007, I graduated from Moscow School of Massage. I then took and passed the National Certification Exam for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork in 2008. I obtained my Idaho Massage License in 2013 and my Oregon Massage license in 2017. I have been a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association for over 13 years. I practiced massage in Idaho for 10 years. First, at a Spa in McCall Idaho, and then in 2010 I took a leap of faith and opened my own business in Riggins, Idaho. I continued my business in Riggins until moving home to Wallowa County in 2017. In 2009 I returned to school to study Esthetics at the Milan Institute in Boise, Idaho. I received my Idaho Esthetician License in 2010 and my Oregon Esthetician License in 2018. I did this so I would be able to offer more services to my clients and share the knowledge of the difference between quality organic products for your skin vs. over the counter products. As the skin is the largest organ in our body, I believe it is very important to use quality ingredients as we do for our internal body. Since moving home in 2017, I worked out of New Heights Physical Therapy offering massage and esthetic services until March of 2020. In April of 2020 I began to fill in here at Eagle Cap Wellness and began full time in June of 2020. I am very happy to be working with this amazing crew and in an environment of caring for our clients and getting to know each person. I look forward to working with you!
