Suzanne Connole at Five Seasons Healing

Suzanne Connole, MSTOM, L.Ac.

Acupuncturist

Suzanne Connole found her way to acupuncture and Chinese Medicine after having used acupuncture to heal from a painful injury. She found that not only was her pain gone, but she felt better in almost every way and her path in life was clear. Having studied Chinese culture, literature and martial arts for many years before, Chinese Medicine fit into her way of life and thinking quite easily. Suzanne graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York in 2003 and has been practicing ever since. Suzanne knew that she wanted to help women in some way and has been able to focus her practice and studies on women’s health. Her goal is to provide a space for healing, ease the transitions through life and help patients achieve their potential. Suzanne is committed to a life-long path of learning and most recently has been studying advanced herbal medicine with Sharon Weizenbaum at the White Pine Institute in Amherst, MA. Suzanne also has had training as a doula and is a faculty member at both Tri-state College of Acupuncture and Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.

Susan Wallmeyer at Five Seasons Healing

Susan Wallmeyer, MSTOM, L.Ac.

Acupuncturist

Susan Wallmeyer has been in practice for over a decade and is passionate about treating all aspects of women’s health. With an undergraduate degree in Biology (pre-medical concentration), her style of practice is informed by both Eastern and Western medicine. She became interested in Chinese Medicine as an undergrad while simultaneously working as a pharmacy technician and taking a course exploring Eastern medical traditions. Susan felt it was the perfect answer to her desire to work with people to improve their health in a more holistic way.

While earning her Masters Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine, she saw patients at both NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases (Initiative for Women with Disabilities) and San Diego Hospice. After graduation she treated IVF patients onsite at RMA Westside and has worked in both community and private practice settings.

She has recently completed an intensive 2 year program in Maternity Acupuncture Mentorship and Peer Support (MAMPS). This program includes certificates in both perinatal clinical practice and research literacy as well as an advanced certificate in practice and professional outreach. Susan enjoys running, travel, cooking with local produce and can always be found with a new book on women’s health.

Jayne is thrilled to be learning all the ins and outs of Chinese Medicine, and can’t wait to be able to help others heal. When not studying, Jayne loves to be outside, spend time with her family, read fiction, and draw.
