Our Experienced Acupuncturists
Jessica Tatieze, LAc, EAMP (Licensed Acupuncturist & Clinic Owner)
Jessica 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 many different clinics, including 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.
Jessica’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
When 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.
Robynne Knight, L.Ac., EAMP (Licensed Acupuncturist)
Robynne Knight, L.Ac., EAMP is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the State of Washington, and a Diplomat of Acupuncture with the NCCAOM. She graduated from the prestigious Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 2008 and participated in post-graduate training at the Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Nanjing, China the same year.
Robynne’s interest in Chinese Medicine grew out of her own experience with acupuncture and Qi Gong in her early 20’s while recovering from surgery. The holistic nature and approach of East Asian Medicine appealed to her, and she chose to pursue graduate studies in the field so that she could offer the healing benefits of this ancient medicine to others. She has experience treating a wide range of conditions including acute and chronic pain, headaches, digestive issues, post-traumatic stress and perinatal issues like morning sickness, low back pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
When not helping people reach their optimal health, Robynne enjoys traveling, writing, hiking, and spending time with her friends and family.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Acupuncture Work?

Does Acupuncture Provide More Than Just Temporary Results?
Yes, the results of acupuncture are long-lasting due to the fact that it addresses the underlying cause of the disease, not just the symptoms.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Usually, one or two treatments per week are recommended. However, the number of treatments needed varies widely according to condition. Generally, the more chronic the illness the more treatments are needed and may require several weeks or longer. Acute problems respond much faster. Occasional treatments throughout the year may help to prevent problems from becoming chronic or severe.
Are The Needles Disposable?

Is Acupuncture Covered By Insurance?

In Washington State, it is the law that the insurance company must include acupuncture treatment as long as it is provided by a licensed acupuncturist. Personal injury cases are usually covered. WA State Medicaid Health Plans, VA, L&I, and personal injury insurance all cover acupuncture now.
Can I Feel The Needles?
Acupuncture needles are as thin as a hair and are inserted quickly to avoid the sensation of pain. But, for those who are still uneasy, we have needless acupuncture available. This is a low-level laser that is used a lot on children and facial acupuncture.
