Timothy D. Foley, M.S.A.O.M., L.Ac., graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2008. While in his last year of study, Timothy traveled to China and the Zhejiang Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital in Huang Zhou, where he observed community style acupuncture as the standard way of treating patients. After starting his private practice he believed that community style acupuncture could work in Ithaca and is now very excited to offer it's benefits to the people of the Finger Lakes region.
Tim is also a musician, having sang and played the guitar in numerous bands. He was born in Chestnut Ridge, NY and he attended college and received a B.S. in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana in Missoula in 2000.

Coleen Osborne - Foley, M.S.A.O.M., L.Ac., graduated from Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at NYCC in 2008. Coleen established a private practice with Timothy D. Foley for two and a half years. After volunteering as an acupuncturist at the Ithaca Free Clinic, Coleen realized there are a lot of community members that do not have access to consistent and continuous treatment. After hearing about the Community Acupuncture model, she thought it would be a great fit for Ithaca.
Coleen grew up in New York, on Long island and attended Hofstra University receiving her B.S. in Geology in 2001. She loves all the outdoor opportunities Ithaca has to offer and has discovered new found love for art (and would love to be able to do it!) while working for a period of time at a local art gallery on The Ithaca Commons.

Jessie Myrick, M.S.A.O.M., L.Ac., grew up in Minnesota before heading west to pursue acupuncture and other healing arts. She graduated from the Arizona School of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine in Tucson, Arizona, in 2013. She also spent two of those years as an apprentice with Vince Black, a Chinese medicine practitioner at Four Winds Health Center, where she gained most of her practical knowledge in meridian acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and soft tissue therapies. Jessie has always embraced the community model of providing affordable acupuncture to all who need it, so she went to work at Tucson Community Acupuncture for a year and a half before moving to Ithaca with her partner, Connor, who is studying soil ecology and researching organic cover crop management at Cornell.
In addition to her acupuncture adventures, Jessie also sees patients privately in her home studio, where she focuses on CranioSacral Therapy, Tuina bodywork, and Chinese herbs. She loves to cook, and works at Macro Mamas kitchen, preparing meals for the farmers markets each week. In her spare time, she grows vegetables at the Cornell Community Plots, plays viola in the Ithaca Community Orchestra, and practices internal martial arts Xingyi Quan, Bagua Zhang, and Taiji Chuan.
