Chinese Herbal Therapy in Asheville…
Chinese herbal therapy or Chinese herbal medicine is a complete system of medicine that is more than five thousand years old. The written tradition of Chinese herbal medicine alone dates back at least two thousand years.
Modern scientific research is validating the ancient insights of Chinese herbal physicians and healers. But Chinese herbal therapy is very different from the pharmaceutical drug approach of western medicine. In Chinese medicine, we use natural approaches to health care and believe in side effect free approaches when possible.
Asheville acupuncturist James Whittle has practiced Chinese herbal therapy for more than a decade. James traveled to China 8 times to work in hospitals that are entirely dedicated to Chinese herbal medicine.
