Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine

Class of 2011

East-Asian medicine is a clinical approach to health care that has been refined and honed over thousands of years. For most of that time the focus of its transmission has been the clinic, where knowledge grows organically out of experience as master practitioners pass on what they know to apprentices. We believe that a modern acupuncture program still must be grounded in the clinic.  Read a Message from the Directors

Jessie Rey Howard
Class of 2003
Jessie Rey received her masters degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine in 2003. Her approach utilizes traditional Chinese and Japanese style Acupuncture with a focus on pain relief (including sport and traumatic injury), stress management, and mood disorders. She also incorporates Chinese Medicinals, Cupping, Moxa, and Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage) into the therapy. Whether your complaints are specifically related to disease, or you have symptoms caused by a hectic, stressful life, Jessie Rey's treatments restore balance, create relaxation, and move the body out of disease and into a state of well-being. She is deeply committed to educating her clients about the full spectrum of options that reside within her scope of practice.

Jessie Rey is a Seattle native. She enjoys playing in the mountains, climbing and hiking. She is passionate about the individual connection with our own bodies and nature, and this is beautifully woven into her work as a practitioner of Chinese Medicine.
Jessie Rey practices at Waking Life Massage and Supply in the U-District, where her patients often have a treatment plan that includes both Acupuncture and Massage. Insurance is accepted.
