Jessica Gaddis, L.Ac.


Originally from Campbellsville, Kentucky, Jessica came to Nashville to attend Belmont University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work, and was employed with a non-profit for several years. 

Her love for acupuncture began after purchasing a Groupon just to try it. After five treatments, she was amazed at how much of a difference it made in her overall health and wellbeing. A few months later, Jessica was on a plane to Hawaii so she could study acupuncture at World Medicine Institute in Oahu.

After graduating, Jessica spent three years practicing acupuncture on a cruise ship, where she had the opportunity to treat a wide array of medical ailments. She returned to Nashville to continue practicing and has now been with Encircle for nearly two years.

What she values most about working with our practice is the ability to provide acupuncture to the community, while making a difference along the way. As acupuncture is one of her own self-care practices, Jessica loves sharing that healing power with our patients.

A little known fact about Jessica is that she worked for a ballooning business while she waited for her license to practice acupuncture in Tennessee. 

In her spare time, Jessica enjoys watching live music and spending time on the lake. She has a hidden talent for growing orchids and moonflowers that perfectly complements her love of plants and sunshine.
