Education & LicensesJessica earned a Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) in Portland in 2010. During her time at OCOM, she treated many patients with a variety of health issues through internships at OCOM Acupuncture and Herbal Clinic, OCOM Hollywood Square Acupuncture Clinic, Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) Family Medicine Clinic, and Quest Center for Integrative Health. She is licensed in both Oregon and Washington and is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) as a Diplomat of Acupuncture. Since then she has done many continuing education courses in topics of pain relief and injury healing, fertility treatment, cosmetic acupuncture, and much more.
Why she is hereJessica’s interest in achieving optimal health and well-being began in her teen years. As a competitive athlete participating in volleyball, basketball and track, she had a strong awareness of the importance of staying well and the connection between mind and body. She loves being able to help patients in a natural and holistic way using acupuncture and Chinese Medicine theory. Seeing the changes patients make in their health that impact their quality of life is so rewarding for Jessica
What elseWhen she's not working with patients, Jessica loves spending time with her husband and her kids (one daughter and two sons), getting together with friends and family, catching up on her favorite tv shows, and enjoying walks in the sun. A warm tropical beach is her favorite place to relax, but she also loves traveling to cities she can explore new cultures in.
From Jessica...“I opened Zara Clinic with the vision for it to be a place where patients can easily access many different natural and holistic services in one convenient place. Along with that, I realized that the ideals put on healthy living just don’t work for most people, including myself. Because of that, at Zara Clinic, we focus on bringing our patients realistic and authentic ways of healing that don’t hold up an unrealistic perfectionism. We meet patients right where they are and work with simple changes and treatments that can make a big difference in how they feel. If you’re looking for a community that gives you opportunites to heal without feeling judged or pressured, you have come to the right place, and we are happy to have you!” Jessica Tatieze, Founder of Zara Clinic.
