|Welcome to Lutea Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. Partnering with the physicians at Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville, I provide gentle and effective acupuncture for all ages. I also provide herbal consultation, qi gong instruction, tui na, and dietary therapy tailored for each patient and their individual needs. Read more about it in my blog. As an herbalist I also create, blend and bottle superior- quality orginal tincture formulas and salves. Lutea is the species name of a lotus, a sacred plant in Chinese Herbal Medicine and the inspiration for my desire to share my herbs with others. I prepare and bottle each formula by hand with an emphasis on effectiveness, quality, and safety. Embracing Chinese Medicine means side-stepping the sometimes toxic effects of pharmaceuticals.
