Our Scope of Practice - What We Treat

According to the WHO (World Health Organization)












Disturbingly often, health care providers over-promise and under-deliver. Having been in practice for a combined 30 years, we know what acupuncture has a track record to help with and what we need to refer out for.  Our experience has shown us that most pain can be effectively treated with acupuncture, that most allergies can be treated with NAET, many women's health issues are well within our scope of practice, and that our protocols for emotional health and evolution have helped thousands. We know that acupuncture is an incredibly effective tool for facial rejuvenation (diminishing wrinkles).

Having said this, The World Health Organization currently has listed the following conditions for which Chinese Medicine is proven to be an effective treatment. Asheville Alternative Wellness Center treats these and many other conditions with acupuncture and Chinese Medicine in Asheville.
