About Middleway Medicine


Clark Zimmerman, LAc, MAcOM

Clark believes that good health is more than just avoiding illness. To him healthy living means to feel a sense of vitality, happiness and inner peace. He has been a student of meditation and taoist philosophy for over 20 years, and brings these ideas of balance to his clinical practice. Clark has been involved in health care since 1998. He has treated thousands of patients with physical ailments such as pain, headaches and digestive issues, but also helps people integrate stress and trauma.

Clark was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. His family is greatly involved in the practice of western medicine and this influenced Clark to develop a curiosity about health care from an early age. At 12 years old, he began studying martial arts which introduced him to the concepts of meditation and eastern philosophy. After graduating from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a BA in English literature, and a minor in zoology, Clark moved to Portland, Oregon and began working in a health food store. This heightened his interest in healthy living and impressed upon him the importance of diet in the treatment and prevention of disease.

A clown at heart, Clark has been juggling since his dad taught him at age 6. He also has been involved in performing arts since his youth, acting in many plays. While living in Portland he worked part time as a free-lance clown and entertainer, using juggling, balloon artwork and music to spread joy and silliness to thousands of people. Clark believes that joy and laughter are truly medicinal and he brings these qualities into his healing practice.

Clark graduated from the Oregon School of Massage in 1998, and then from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2004, which is consistently considered to be among the top Chinese medical schools in the nation. He then married his grad school sweetheart and set out for Asia for a 6 month honeymoon and period of advanced study. He and his wife Ann moved to Talent, Oregon in 2005 and started Middleway Medicine. He is very content living in a smaller community where people work together to make the world a more enjoyable and peaceful place.

Though he studies and practices Chinese medicine, he still has a strong respect for western medicine, and believes that the best healthcare involves using the best that eastern and western medicine have to offer. He is a licensed acupuncturist and is a nationally certified herbalist, as well as a qi gong instructor and a teacher in the SOU olli program. He specializes in treating headaches and digestive disorders, as well as all types of pain. He enjoys juggling, playing music, meditation, yoga, gardening and an endless number of outdoor activities.

I have been practicing Chinese medicine in Talent, Oregon for 16 years. In 2005, my husband and I founded our clinic, Middleway Medicine. My gift as a healer is being a fully present listener who skillfully uses the tools of Chinese medicine, personal experience, and intuition. I enjoy working with acute and chronic conditions and I  love helping patients manage their health as it changes with age. My clinical passion and expertise is working with fertility, pregnancy, and personal growth. 

Working at Middleway feels like a tremendous opportunity to share this effective system of medicine with the community. Sometimes all we need is a little nudge to get ourselves moving in the direction we know will bring out our best self.  I am constantly amazed at the capacity we each have to grow and change with what life gives us. Outside of the clinic, I love meditating, gardening, hiking and spending time with friends and family.

Dr. Sandra Curry

Dr. Sandra Curry

DACM, LAc, DiplOM

Dr Sandra is a gifted, intuitive healer who excels in holding sacred, non-judgmental space so you can release what no longer serves your highest truth and be more of your most authentic self. She believes that our bodies will do their best to maintain their innate state of balance. And, at times, we all need additional support to “course correct” and regain our harmony and health. She is honored to guide you so you can regain your vibrant health.

Like Middleway’s owners, Ann & Clark, Dr Sandra attended the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (which is where they all met), completing a 4 year Masters program. She later attained her Doctorate from the Pacific College of Health Sciences. She loves using all of her education, as well as her intuitive “clair” senses to provide you with the highest healing possible. She affectionately refers to this as getting the best of both her nerdy scientific side and her energetic wuwu side. It really is a beautiful and effective healing combination!

When not in the clinic, you can find her pursuing her passions of indigenous healing, culture, traveling, gardening, hiking, and backpacking. She has spent a great deal of time traveling, participating in sacred ceremonies, and learning healing methods with Indigenous and First Nation people in North America, as well as in Central and South America. She has studied with Daoist healers and qigong masters since 2002 and has taught various forms of qigong since 2007. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and the ever-present love and wisdom from her squishy floofs, aka cats.

Dr Sandra is Nationally Board Certified in Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, and Oriental Medicine. She is licensed to practice acupuncture in Oregon and Arizona.

LAc., MAcOM

My interest in Chinese Medicine was initially born of my own direct experience of the profound healing potential of acupuncture and herbal medicine. In my earlier years, I lived with significant chronic health issues and experienced some extreme health crises. It was primarily through Chinese medicine and the transformative effects of dedicated practice in arts like taijiquan and qigong that I was able to not only overcome many health issues and health traumas, but found a path that continues to lead me ever further and deeper in my process and interest.

In my early twenties I immersed myself in the practices of yoga, taijiquan, martial arts, qigong, and Zen Buddhist and Daoist meditation and became deeply interested in the related life and healing sciences of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. In 2005 I entered graduate school at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in Portland, OR. During my time in school and since, I have engaged in continuing education and advanced training in classical Chinese herbal medicine, various styles of acupuncture, western herbal medicine, gemmotherapy (phyto-embryo therapy), shiatsu, tuina, pulse diagnosis, the Alexander Technique (of which I am an AmSAT certified teacher) and equine acupuncture and bodywork. I have been in practice now for fifteen years and my passion for my work and continued personal development only grow deeper with time and experience.

As a practitioner I find great joy and nourishment in being an ally and guide in my patients’ healing journeys, connecting with and relating to people from all walks of life, all ages and in all conditions in a spirit of service. I seek to provide coherent, sensitive, adaptable and effective treatment while also educating and supporting patients in integrating new life skills and perspectives. 

I see health and healing as a vitally creative process that not only transforms our physical condition but extends into and beyond renewing all parts of ourselves, our lives, work, relationships and communities. Beyond my interest in all things medicine and healing, I am a musician, photographer, hiker, and gardener. My current studies and curiosities include biodynamics, Anthroposophy, horsemanship and early music.

Despite growing up in a medically-minded family, the use of natural medicine and it’s philosophies came much later in Jen’s life.  After fracturing a vertebra in her spine at the age of 15, she was left with severe pain and a limp that plagued her daily life.  She spent years seeking care from medical doctors only to be disappointed with the results and continued pain.  Jen finally got relief after receiving spinal adjustments from a chiropractor she worked for in Hawaii.  There, she was educated on many different “alternative” lifestyle concepts, from eating organic whole foods to the benefits of natural childbirth.  By interacting with colleagues in the chiropractic and naturopathic arena, Jen started to revamp her thought process and how she approached her life.

After being turned onto natural healthcare, Jen’s interests turned from her BA in History from the University of Washington toward continuing her education in the healing arts.  She went on to study and become licensed in massage therapy (LMT) at the Hawaii College of Health Sciences.   During this time she met and married her partner of 5 years (a hunky drummer/surfer boy from Oahu).  Soon after massage school, she began her family which quickly trumped being an LMT.  Jen and her husband were blessed to have had home water births for both of their children. Their daughter was born in Oregon and their son in upstate New York, where they lived for 10 years before returning west in the fall of 2015.

Having moved around much of her life, living in 8 different states and in England as an exchange student, Jen developed a passion for travel and good food.  She has also seen many parts of Europe and Russia.  She looks forward to future adventures in Central and South America, New Zealand and Australia and maybe even tagging along on a surf trip to Fiji.  In her free time, Jen likes hiking, camping, and exploring the coast with her family.  Her kids are amazing athletes and she is their biggest cheerleader at their soccer games.  She enjoys baking and sharing the goods with family and friends. She loves watching movies and is a HUGE Seahawks fan!  Jen, is very excited to be closer to family, the Pacific Ocean, and to have the opportunity to work in an acupuncture clinic that is dedicated to bringing health and healing to the Rogue Valley.  If you would like to learn more about our “Office Goddess”, call or drop by to schedule an appointment.
