About Jamie Hampton, DAOM
Dr. Jamie Hampton is a doctoral graduate of The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the oldest TCM school in the US. She has worked in leading San Francisco Bay Area hospitals for the last 18 years with an emphasis on true integration and collaboration within fast paced clinical settings including the ICU. While she was an adjunct professor through University of California, San Francisco she also had the privilege of teaching grand rounds to medical students. This experience blossomed into a faculty position at the Acupuncture and Integrative Medical College in Berkeley, CA where she taught advanced needling technique, gynecology and advanced formula writing. This solidified her love of teaching and connecting with her students, conveying the power of TCM and all its abilities. She was also co-founder of Golden Leaf Acupuncture in Berkeley, CA which was University California Berkeley’s leading provider for students as well as faculty and staff. Having discovered a total lack of treatment options for pelvic floor pain (including acupuncture) Dr. Hampton made it her mission to specialize in helping these patients. She has treated pelvic floor patients since 2009.
Currently Jamie practices in San Francisco, CA specializing in pelvic floor dysfunction and complex orthopedic cases.
