Meet Our Doctors

Jamie Chan-Ortega, Ph.D., L.Ac., AFMCP

Doctor of Natural Health Sciences
Functional Medicine Practitioner
Board Certified Acupuncturist

Dr. Jamie graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Notre Dame in 1997 and Summa Cum Laude from Emperor’s College Graduate School in 2000. In 2004 she started her practice, Oasis Healing Arts, and began treating patients with acupuncture, nutritional supplements, and massage therapy (Dr. Jamie is a master massage therapist). Later that year she earned her yoga certification to expand her repertoire and to help her patients learn how to move and breathe in such a way that would both calm their minds and strengthen their bodies. In 2011 Dr. Jamie published her first book, “Restore the Flow” – a lifelong dream come true. In 2013 she began her training in Functional Medicine and in February of 2014 she earned her Ph.D. in Natural Health Sciences. Dr. Jamie’s research focused on stress physiology and specifically explored the effect of scripture-based mindfulness meditation on perceived stress levels and stress-related physical symptoms of working mothers.

Dr. Jamie is a genuine healer and lifelong scholar. Her ongoing academic and professional achievements and the positive health outcomes of thousands of her patients are a continual testament to her passionate dedication to natural medicine and the healing arts. She is sought-after for her grasp of both medical science and naturalistic approaches to treating disorders of health; her powerful hands-on healing bodywork; her warm and approachable nature; and her understanding of spiritual principles as a foundation for thought and belief, which ultimately affect physical health.

Ellen Zhang L.Ac.

Board Certified Acupuncturist

Born and raised in Chongqing, China, Dr. Ellen began her Traditional Chinese Medicine journey as a young professional athlete in swimming and basketball. During the intense training and competitions, Ellen had various degrees of injuries. Acupuncture, cupping, and herbal formulas always came to her as a rescue since a young age.

After completing her MBA and working at several Fortune 500 companies in her 20’s, she suffered from anxiety, sleep disorders, and depression from the stressful work environment. Fortunately, acupuncture helped her again to release a lot of those bottled-up emotions and toxins in her body. This led to Dr. Ellen’s passion for learning medicine and her devotion to educating others about alternative and holistic healing, from the inside out.

After 6 years of education in Chinese Medicine, Dr. Ellen received her Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine through South Baylo University in Los Angeles with both Clinic Excellence and Academic scholarships. She focuses on the integration of Eastern and Western medicine, excellent patient care, and serving the communities around her.

Dr. Ellen strongly believes that balance and harmony are the keys to health. She is a general practitioner, serving patients who present with chronic pain, sports injury, sleep disorders, emotional/mental issues, migraine, and reproductive health. Her treatments include acupuncture, electrical stimulation, herbal consultation and prescriptions, cupping & gua sha therapy, nutrition and exercise recommendations, taichi, and other means to gain mindfulness and health in daily life.

With her strong skill sets in holistic healing and an “always be on the side of patients” mindset, Ellen’s goal is to provide a superb patient experience by delivering the highest quality healthcare in a thorough, effective, and caring manner.

Dr. Jones, L.Ac.

Board Certified Acupuncturist

Chih Wei Chen, affectionately called “Dr. Jones” here at Oasis, was born in Taiwan and represents the fourth generation of Chinese medicine and Tui-Na manual therapy in his family lineage. He received his Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Alhambra Medical University in Los Angeles, CA.

Dr. Jones discovered the beauty and effectiveness of Traditional Chinese Medicine through his many years of mentorship under his grandfather and father, as well as through his personal study and professional practice. Dr. Jones takes a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare with the use of acupuncture, herbal medicine, tui-Na manual therapy, cupping, moxibustion, guided-exercise, and lifestyle changes. He specializes in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems such as traumatic or repetitive postural stress injuries, digestive disorders, emotional imbalances, and other chronic issues such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

One of Dr. Jones’ fundamental tenets as a healthcare provider is: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” He also believes that we must all be our own best doctor, and therefore strives to offer his patients the tools to empower themselves and to take control of their own healing.
