Dr. Jessi Turner
Dr. Jessi Turner, CVA is the sole owner and veterinarian of Healing Hands Holistic Veterinary Service. She was born and raised in a suburb of Rochester, NY. She developed a love of animals at an early age, and she grew up with dogs and horses.
She graduated from Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. Throughout vet school, Dr. Jessi developed an interest in alternative, complementary, and integrative veterinary medicine, including traditional Chinese medicine, Photobiomodulation (Light) Therapy, pain management, rehabilitation, chiropractic, and nutrition. During her fourth year of vet school, she studied acupuncture and traditional Chinese veterinary medicine in Beijing, China. In China, she further developed her skills and passion for traditional Chinese medicine.
In the Spring of 2013, Dr. Jessi completed the 6 month Mixed Practice Acupuncture Training Program through the Chi Institute in Reddick, FL and became a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist. With the knowledge, experience, and passion gained through vet school and this course, Dr. Jessi decided to open Healing Hands Holistic Veterinary Service in order to provide another option in veterinary care to Central Iowa.
In the Fall of 2021, Dr. Jessi moved back to the Rochester area to be closer to family, and she transferred her business to Upstate NY in January 2022.
