Molly AllisonOccupational Therapist, Certified Hand Therapist, Structural Medicine Specialist, Professional Bowenwork Practitioner
Molly Allison has been practicing Occupational Therapy in Seattle for 24 years. About her practice, she writes, “I have always had a natural affinity for health, musculoskeletal anatomy, and wellness through a holistic approach. Drawing from both worlds of conventional western medicine and alternative approaches, I integrate them both into treatment.”
She is a member of the Arthritis Foundation Advisory Board and is eager to bring awareness of the many forms of arthritis to her patients and colleagues in Seattle and to the state and national level. She prides herself in guiding patients through their injury process and helping them to understand how their recovery may be impacted by nutrition, exercise, stress, awareness of one’s breath and overall life satisfaction. She graduated from University of Washington’s Occupational Therapy program in 1991 and returned to UW in 1999 to complete an advanced Master’s of OT with an emphasis in Upper Extremity Cumulative Trauma in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury. She went on to complete a 4 year Structural Medicine training through the Institute of Structural Medicine. This has positively impacted how she views the human structure and anatomy. She has been fortunate to have had the opportunity to live and work in Nepal and Japan, and is intrigued by diversity of all sorts, be it cultural, ethnic, socioeconomic, etc.. Much of her professional career has been at Harborview Medical Center, Seattle’s Level I Trauma Hospital, where a unique diversity thrives. She currently lectures to clinical staff at University of Washington. She is passionate about educating our community (health care providers as well as patients) about health and well being. She enjoys organic gardening, mountaineering, pottery, holistic nutrition, exploring the Pacific Northwest’s alpine wilderness and spending time with her husband and sons.
