Jacksonville Oriental Medicine Center (JOMC) is a Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic in which Acupuncture, Cupping, Tuina, and Chinese herbs are a daily routine.

Owned and managed by Vivian Manduca-Marquez, L.Ac., OMD (Florida), JOMC opened its doors on November of 2006, tending to the needs of the residents of the city of Jacksonville, Camp LeJeune, and its proximities, making it easier for them to get a comprehensive system of preventative health care and maintenance. In a very short time, JOMC has grown to be a very reliable clinic and a pillar of this community. It is the only center of its kind in the area.

At JOMC, we focus on establishing a long time relationship with our patients, and strive to return them to health. We look at each person who comes into our office as a unique individual and take the time to learn about his/her life style, motivators, temperament and personality and how these various aspects affect their health and well-being.

Our website has a lot of information, but should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at  910-989-0002.
