Jess Butler is a licensed acupuncturist who has given over 9,000 treatments. Born and raised in Boston, she continues to serve in the communities that have raised her. She has practiced in a variety of settings including Dimock Community Health Center, Boston Medical Center, Acupuncture Together (community acupuncture practice), and on a volunteer basis at the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. She has studied Dr. Tan distal treatment methods and has received certification with Paul Fraser in Medical Qigong. Jess has extensive experience treating patients with a vast range of symptoms, from recent injuries to chronic pain. She specializes in treating migraines and reproductive health concerns.
Jess’ practice is rooted in empowering patients to recognize their own bodies’ ability to heal. She came to acupuncture first as a patient after suffering for two decades with debilitating migraines. Disheartened by the limitations of western medicine, Jess finally found relief and renewed vitality through acupuncture treatments. Jess believes acupuncture is the foundation of holistic health care because the treatments address the physical, emotional, and spiritual distress that pain causes our bodies.
Jess’ acupuncture practice is gentle, intuitive, and compassionate. Her personal journey and professional experience enables her to connect deeply with patients both new to acupuncture and those who continue to use acupuncture as their primary mode of healing. Her comprehensive treatments enable a patient to explore and strengthen the connections between their body, their emotions, and their well being. Jess is particularly skilled at facilitating a patient’s awareness of the root cause of their discomfort and disease, and guiding them through small changes which can lead to overall improvements in health.
Jess received her Masters of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the New England School of Acupuncture and is licensed by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine. She is certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
