About Dr. Davis

Meet the Acupuncturist: Dr. Jamie Davis

Dr. Jamie L. Davis, MA, MSA, DAOM, LAc. is a licensed acupuncturist and practitioner of Chinese medicine in the state of Idaho, and previously in the state of Washington, since 2009. 

Acupuncture was introduced to her while in graduate school earning a Master’s degree in medical anthropology. She was experiencing an intense illness throughout most of her life (later it was discovered to be late-stage lyme disease and coinfections), and by then it had become almost completely debilitating. Once Dr. Davis started receiving relief from pain and illness from acupuncture, she knew that her life’s path was not just to study medicine but in fact to practice it as well.

After completing her MA degree in anthropology and pre-med requirements, she immediately enrolled at Bastyr University, and graduated with a Master of Science degree in Acupuncture, 2008. This 3-year Masters program was followed by a one-month internship in Shanghai, China, working in two well-known hospitals, focusing on stroke/neurological conditions and endocrinology. After several years of practice, Jamie made the decision to return to school to receive her Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, with a focus on scientific research, completing this degree in 2015. During this time she earned a certificate in acupuncture for labor and delivery at the Lutheran Medical Center, Brooklyn, New York; and an additional internship at a neurological clinic in Taipei, Taiwan. 

Dr. Davis’ focus is on building a community of natural healthcare that is accessible to everyone, placing special emphasis on family care. Through acupuncture, Chinese medicine (herbal medicine), lifestyle, education and her previous training in medical anthropology, Dr. Davis uses an integrated approach to holistic medicine in order to promote healing, wellness, and cultural awareness to her patients and community.
