In the two and a half years of east west women’s health acupuncture, I have had the joy and privilege of sharing the sacred journeys of many women during their pregnant and postpartum experiences. How blessed am I to have had this experience after 30 years of practice as a nurse-midwife. My heart and spirt are very full as I make the very hard decision to retire from this clinic. i want to thank Lone Star Ob Gyn Associates and the Nurse-Midwives for their generous support. I want to thank all the women, especially those who were new to acupuncture, for their trust and faith in me. I have had the blessing of learning so much from these women as they shared their hopes, fears and stories with me.
As I move into the next chapter, I will always carry these memories with me.

My last day was July 28, 2016.

Welcome to EastWestWomensHealth. I’m Jan Olsen, and I’ve been a Licensed Acupuncturist since 2002 and a Certified Nurse Midwife since 1985.  I have shared the joy of childbirth with thousands of women over the years.  My philosophy is based on the belief that each woman deserves to feel honored, supported, and empowered during her pregnancy and birth.

With my extensive experience, I am the ideal practitioner to safely integrate the choice of acupuncture into your obstetric care during pregnancy.   My practice — East/West Women’s Health — is an acupuncture clinic dedicated to provide care and support during the most special and sacred time of your life.

Oriental Medicine is a system of healing that dates back centuries and provides safe, natural, and effective treatment and support for many of the physiologic and emotional challenges of pregnancy.

I am here to support you and your baby during this amazing time. I will work in partnership with you, your Midwife, and/or Doctor to provide a healthy foundation for you and your baby.

I welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions.   Please feel free to call me at (210) 861-2786 or email me at:   jan “at” eastwestwomenshealth.com.   Thank you for your interest.

Note: The symbol in the EastWest Women’s Health header and logo is called “Easing Childbirth,” and it represents mother and child. The child is depicted as the Three Treasures in Chinese Medicine which are heaven, human and earth.  Health and harmony are defined as the human living in balance with heaven and earth. This symbol is from China. I have worn a necklace with this symbol for 15 years, and it holds the energy of many births.
