About Us

Guided Health was created by professionals who have first-hand experience bridging western and oriental medicine.

Jennie Kjos, its founder, has had great success opening complementary care clinics which are currently operating within the regulatory environment.

With Guided Health, you gain professional knowledge backed by over 20 years of experience and degree credentials in pharmacy, business, and Oriental Medicine.

With Acu-Ease™, Jennie has combined several of the existing acupuncture modalities with a “less is more” approach.
