Asheville Gynecology and Wellness focuses on personalized medicine with the goal of eliminating disease and helping patients achieve their wellness goals through nutrition, stress management, and fitness. We offer an integrative method of care using a combination of allopathic (conventional medicine) and alternative approaches to healing.

  • Acupuncture

    Hello!  I’m Hillary, a NCCAOM board certified Acupuncturist; more specifically I am a 5 Element Acupuncturist. 

    Working with people is what brings joy and purpose to my life. No matter the person’s circumstances and goals, there is always room for acupuncture. Whether someone is having physical issues or if they are going through an emotional time, or trying to simply live a healthier lifestyle; acupuncture lends itself beautifully to one’s physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional needs. 

    Currently, many of my patients are women who are post chemotherapy, dealing with neuropathy, pain, and discomfort. They are discovering life after cancer treatment and are on the path of forward movement. 

    I  truly enjoy working with ALL people, wherever they may be in their life journey. Whether it is anxiety, depression, back pain, sleep disturbances, grief, healthy lifestyle changes, or seeking clarity of mind about a situation, acupuncture can help. It is a beautiful process to observe as we blossom, grow, heal, and discover ourselves.

  • Food For Life Program

    Our bodies are constantly being rebuilt and regenerated. Because of this, we can say that food is medicine. Wise, sensible food choices are often the start of improving our overall health. We realize that preparing healthy food is a learning process. The teaching kitchen was created to facilitate that learning process through courses on meal planning and practical skills for busy lives. 

    Our instructor(s) teach Food for Life nutrition and cooking classes at Asheville Gynecology & Wellness. The principles of Plant-Based are consistent with the findings and initiatives developed  by Cornell University’s T. Colin Campbell. He is the author of The China Study.  If you are interested in Food For Life or other resources for Plant-Based Nutrition, CLICK HERE to explore a list of upcoming events/programs.
