About Dr. Parris

Dr. Jenise Parris’ total-health approach was developed through rigorous study and practice of a combination of disciplines.

Dr. Parris holds a Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Health and Science. She has extensive training in women’s and men’s reproductive health, as well as advanced training in sport related injuries and autoimmune and digestive imbalances. Her additional training as a board-certified herbalist and aromatherapist adds to her expertise in holistic therapies.

After receiving her Master’s of Arts in Dance from UCLA, she moved to New York City in the early 80’s to pursue her professional dance career. While dancing, she discovered the healing and curative powers of traditional Chinese medicine. This became her go-to medicine to heal all her dance-related injuries and, later, to maintain a healthy pregnancy and her general wellness.

Dr. Parris then received a Master’s of Science Exercise Physiology from United Sports Academy. Her training and expertise in exercise science, anatomy, kinesiology, nutrition, and cardiac health adds to her deep knowledge of how to maintain and restore the body from sports injuries, over training, accidents, muscle skeletal misalignments, and weight issues. Dr. Parris had a premier personal training practice in New York City for over 17 years and uses this knowledge and experience to help restore patients’ health today.

She has also studied extensively in China and worked with world-renowned practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine and physicians for two decades, while building a thriving practice in New York. She has such gratitude for all the knowledge that she gained from studying and practicing with these great leaders in the field of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and aromatherapy.

In addition, Dr. Parris has advanced certifications in aromatherapy and natural skin care. She has developed her own brand of organic skin care and wellness products and offers holistic skin and body care services at Parris Wellness.
