While DOs and MDs medical school curricula and practicing certification are virtually identical, osteopathic medicine is a parallel branch of American medicine , DOs practice a "whole person" approach to medicine; instead of just treating a patient for a specific symptom, they regard the body as an integrated whole. Dr. Jessica Dacus applies this method to the development of skincare treatments and protocols to achieve the healthiest skin for her clients.


Graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science from NYU and a concentration in physical therapy, she applied a patient-centered approach to her treatments, developing panoptic therapeutic programs to help patients achieve their optimal level of function. Dr. Dacus went on to receive her medical degree from the University of New England and completed her residency in Family Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Worcester. 


Dr. Dacus has a keen ability to help people achieve the natural looks they hope for.

Jessica personally tailors every treatment and is known for her artistic eye and superior skills.
