Dr. Jill Stape
Dr. Jill Stape, D.O.M. graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology in 1996. In 2000, she went on to complete a Masters of Science degree in Chinese Medicine as valedictorian of her class at the International Institute of Chinese Medicine. She emphasizes acupuncture, other Chinese medical therapies such as cupping and moxibustion, herbal treatment, supplementation, essential oils and nutrition.
During her first year of clinical practice, she became a Certified Wholistic Kinesiologist and integrated many new skills into her treatment methods. She studied under Dr. J. Dunn, D.C., the founder of this biofeedback based technique. She worked across the hall from Dr. Dunn for many years at the beginning of her practice learning many clinical pearls from this great practitioner. This new skill of kinesiology allowed her to customize treatments to the patient, making her treatment and herbal programs much more effective. A few years into practice, Dr. Stape began treating many patients for addiction. She worked as the acupuncturist for the Metro Drug Court and Turquoise Lodge (a 28 day in patient drug rehab center) for several years. She gained many insights in the treatment of addiction and its accompanying symptoms of anxiety and depression. After another few years, she became interested in treating infertility. She helped a good friend who was undergoing IVF and began to immerse herself in learning about how Traditional Chinese Medicine can improve fertility. In 2008, she studied, took a board examination, and became a Fellow of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM; aborm.org), a national board of distinguished practitioners who have thorough knowledge of both Western and Eastern medical treatment of infertility. Dr Jill Stape is one of only three Board Certified Reproductive Specialists in the state of New Mexico. She has extensive clinical experience in fertility treatment. She has been working closely with the leading reproductive endocrinology centers, the Caperton Fertility Institute (www.capertonfertility.com, Dr. Lee Caperton) and The Fertility Center of New Mexico (nmfertility.com, Dr. Jim Thompson) for over 10 years. She has been blessed as the mother of five beautiful and wonderful children with her husband Dr. Dominic Stape. Her passion is helping families achieve the dream of having babies.
