Hi, I’m Allison.

I’m a lisenced acupuncturist and herbalist in the Asheville, NC area. I work with folks of all ages to find the right tools to bring your life back into balance. Good health is a process and a daily practice. Whether it’s through acupuncture, herbs, food therapy or bodywork, Chinese Medicine has many tools to support you, wherever you are in your process.

As my path unfolds, my practice of Chinese Medicine continues to evolve. Come and join me on this journey.
