The Inspired Wellness Center Team
Dr. Jana is the Owner & Acupuncture Expert here at Inspired Wellness Center. Her goal is to have her patients become inspired by their health! Thriving in the challenges of her patients, Jana has been able achieve great results helping women start their families through her fertility services, & has a deep passion for working closely with cancer patients helping them through the side effects of their treatment. While many of Jana’s patients come to Inspired Wellness Center for a variety of reasons, the common factors are patients looking for results with their health.
Jana graduated from the University of Hawaii with a bachelor’s degree in Biology (specifically Marine Science…hence our deep love for SHARKS!) and then went on to Southwest Acupuncture College to earn a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Jana is state licensed in Colorado and nationally Board Certified in Acupuncture by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Jana opened Inspired Wellness Center in 2007 and has successfully treated thousands of patients with just about every health condition you could imagine. After 10 years in private practice, Jana returned to school at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine for their Doctoral program which completes her education and gives her a full scope of practice. Jana will always use acupuncture and her knowledge in Chinese Medicine to address health issues, but as a Doctor she can now utilize western medical tests and medications to gather information even faster and treat with more options if necessary.
Jana is a true Colorado native so when she's not at work, she loves being outside, hiking and camping. She also loves spending time with her family, friends and her English bulldog Willow.
Lisa Salerno is a practitioner of Chinese medicine focused on providing her patients with thorough, individualized, and comprehensive care treating a variety of specific conditions and symptoms. In addition to treating diseases, Lisa promotes preventative health, wellness and patient empowerment utilizing a combination of techniques that may include acupuncture, bodywork, cupping, moxibustion, Chinese herbs, dietary and self-care recommendations. Modern conveniences can pose barriers for our ancient bodies. She helps to implement practical steps to overcome these barriers.
Lisa received her Bachelor of Science in Biology as a pre-med major at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her medical education shifted when she began searching for an ‘umbrella health degree’ which would offer her effective manual therapies to treat people without having to use pharmaceuticals. Her increased interest in eastern medicine led her to obtain her Master of Science in Oriental Medicine in 2014 at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon where she was trained in acupuncture, various bodywork modalities, cupping, moxabustion, Chinese herbs, and nutrition. Lisa is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of Colorado and nationally recognized through the National Certification Commission of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
Lisa’s dedication, curiosity, strong work ethic, and persistent nature are some of her strongest assets which in turn will translate to her patients’ health and well-being. She will design an individualized treatment plan unique to every patient
