Bec Jimenez (they/she)
Bec Jimenez L.Ac. is a graduate of the Won Institute in Glenside, PA where she earned her Masters degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Bec believes that in order to truly heal, you must treat and honor all three points of health: body, mind and spirit. When all three aspects of the person are addressed, full health and wellness can be obtained. Bec was originally introduced to acupuncture when it helped her break an 8 year long nicotine addiction, while helping her ease and reverse her own personal PCOS and hormonal imbalance symptoms.
Bec specializes in treating women with reproductive health issues, specifically:
- Hormonal and menstrual imbalance caused by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD).
- Infertility caused by Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Idiopathic infertility
Bec also has extensive experience treating post operative scar tissue formations with the use of electroacupuncture techniques. Electroacupuncture aids in expediting the skin’s ability to undergo cellular renewal to repair the tissue and regain neurological sensation in the affected area.
Some examples of post operative scar work:
- Scars from accidents
- Cesarean section
- Skin cancer
- Gender-affirming surgery (top surgery)
In addition to her specialities listed above, Bec has had success treating:

Tyrell Blacquemoss (they/he)
Tyrell Blacquemoss is a Sangoma, a South African Traditional Healer, trained in ancestral practices, certified in Usui Reiki II, and a graduate of Cornell University. The ancestral practices include:
- Conjure, the African Traditional Religion born in diaspora
- initiated as a Pachakuti Mesa Carrier
- Elder of Eanna Temple in South Africa

Tyrell also has familiarity with these ancestral practices:
- Toltec Chichimeca Dreamplanting
- Southern Folk Medicine
- Sonoran desert Curanderismo
- Traditional Chinese Medicine
In healing work, I prefer every step to be as gentle as possible with information and context provided for overview, preparation, and integration. I have volunteered in advocacy and organizing work for survivors of domestic violence and abuse. In addition to my work for others, my practice is very personal and has supported me through eighteen months of houselessness, PTSD symptoms, and healing from domestic violence.
My ancestral energy work supports breaking up the unseen and enormous blockages that can be present for folks who have experienced generations of trauma. I specialize in working with LGBT family, trauma survivors, Black and Indigenous folks and those seeking ancestral wisdom. I work to bring homecoming, remembrance and sacred archiving and transmission of lineage wisdom. The energy healing and traditional medicine that occurs during a session is given and received through cultural performances of song, storytelling and individual consultations on the study of dreams and cultural practices for spiritual development, personal development and a bit of entertainment. All individual sessions are done remotely and group work is done in-person. I also teach classes on movement meditation and dreamwork remotely and in person. There is both a teaching and energy clearing component to every way of working with me.
My clients have had success moving through:
- Grief and transitions
- Chronic pain
- Persistent anxiety
- General stress
- Chronic fatigue
- Spiritual hygiene needs for diviners and direct care practitioners
- Tension Headaches
- PTSD symptoms
- Trauma Recovery
- Intergenerational Trauma
- Lack of peace, boredom, desire for more joy
