Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine


Promoting Your Body’s Innate Healing Potential with Ancient Mind-Body Medicine


Women’s Health

Whether you are at the beginning of your menstrual cycles or you have transitioned into menopause, acupuncture and herbs can bring major relief for female balance.  It is one of the areas Chinese medicine treats best.  Believe it or not, even if you've struggled with menstrual issues such as severe cramping and heavy bleeding your whole life, Chinese medicine can help your cycles become regular, pain-free, normal amount of flow, and decreased mood swings.

Conditions I work with on a regular basis:

  • Endometriosis

  • Irregular Cycles

  • Heavy Bleeding, Severe Cramping

  • Hormonal Mood Imbalances

  • Infertility & IVF

  • Pregnancy & birth prep

Pain Relief & Pain Free

Pain relief can happen with acupuncture whether you are experiencing chronic pain after surgery, a decade old injury, or strained a muscle a couple weeks prior.  Acupuncture reduces inflammation and turns off the pain signals in your brain.  Depending on your condition, acupuncture can help you avoid surgery or heal from post-surgical complications.  I work with all areas of the body, and can treat pain anywhere.

Pain conditions I help relieve on a regular basis:

  • Low back pain

  • Sciatica

  • Neck pain

  • Shoulder pain

  • Tennis elbow/Tendonitis

  • Knee pain

  • Old injuries

  • Pain from an unknown cause

Acupuncture and herbal medicine can be an invaluable component to maintaining our mental health and bringing us into balance when we find ourselves in patterns of overwhelm, anxiety and depression.  Acupuncture is so effective at regulating the nervous system, whether it is on stuck on overdrive or needs to be kicked up a notch.  Many people notice a change in their mood and emotions within the first week of an acupuncture treatment and continue to notice significant improvement with continued treatments. 

Emotional states I work with regularly:

  • Stress

  • Anxiety, fear and constant worry

  • Depression, apathy and feeling stuck, low energy

  • Mood swings - irritability

  • Sleep disturbance

  • Lack of creativity and purpose

  • PTSD - panic attacks

  • Medication side-effects



Acupuncture works with the body's natural ability to heal itself.  It's similar to when you get a cut, the body knows exactly what to do without your thinking about it.  The body is an intelligent system and with acupuncture we can directly work with this natural healing substance.


Herbal Pharmacy

I have one of the few custom herbal pharmacies in Western North Carolina, stocked with over 75 Chinese herbs that are used to make herbal formulas based on each individual's health concern.  Drinking customized teas from a well-trained herbalist can be one of the most effective and quickest way to see change, even in long-standing, Persistent conditions. I also prescribe the highest quality brands of Herbal Pills and Tinctures.

*In person and distance consultations available.
