Update: 5/1/2020

We are open and seeing patients on a limited basis. Check with your provider or our online scheduling for availability. If you currently have any respitory symptoms please contact us for a Telehealth session.



 Dear blessed Flower Mountain & Natural Pathways community,

Holding space that you are blooming with the bounty of spring in these rapidly changing times. Trusting you are finding faith in the ever spiritual world and acquiring serenity in all the sensational fears that come up about the future.
We understand that the emotional waves come and go and want to support you with affordable healthcare (Always sliding scale)
As the world confronts this healthcare crisis, it is more important than ever that we all take good care of ourselves and each other in our families. We are treating mental and emotional health at this time as well as symptoms related to spring. A time to deep clean internally and externally as we keep one foot in winter and one foot in summer! 
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), spring is the quintessential time of creating, cleansing, activity and movement, growth, and renewal.
It‚Äôs also an auspicious time to focus on releasing emotions that no longer serve us‚ÄĒspecifically those rooted in anger, resentment, frustration, and lethargy.
Just like bare, dormant trees being to grow buds and blossom; we too can harness the power of spring to slough off the old and usher in a fresh, beautiful new experience of health, mental clarity, and emotional well-being.
Spring is All About the Liver and Gall Bladder
The Liver and Gall Bladder are at their peak of activity during the spring, making it a perfect time to focus on supporting their function.
The Liver and Gall Bladder work together to move blood and bile, and play pivotal roles in:
Spleen and Lung health‚ÄĒwhich can affect your immunity and susceptibility to seasonal allergies
The tendons‚ÄĒwhich can impact flexibility and strength, tight achy muscles.¬†
And your eye health‚ÄĒclear vision moving forward
While there are many ways to support your Liver and Gall Bladder, my advice is to take your cues from the season, take it slow, and consider our Spring cleanse.
Our 21 day Ayurvedic/TCM Spring Cleanse is AVAIL NOW and it’s all ONLINE. ¬†A perfect time to spiritually and physically retreat. Enter AVLOCAL code for $100 off. (Payment plans also available)¬†

((To protect our clients we are cleaning before and after each client with a product called Vital Oxide. Vital Oxide has been approved by the EPA for use against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes the Coronavirus Disease 2019.
 We are spacing our appointments so only 1 person is present at a time to ensure safety and disinfecting regularly ))

In health,
Chris, Sarah, Dov and Fam

Update 3/18/2020

Dear, Patients and Friends of Flower Mountain.

We at Flower Mountain have been watching the recent developments unfold with CORVID-19. Many have been wondering if we will be open. Currently our plan is to stay open on a limited basis through this week and then we will reassess for next week based on any developments.

We all know that acupuncture is a wonderful treatment system that can be especially helpful in times of great stress and anxiety. We want to continue to offer acupuncture treatments as long as it is reasonable to do so. In China herbs and acupuncture were essential in improving the outcomes of this virus and reducing the duration. Chinese Medicine practitioners are on the front lines with Allopathic staff. In the United States acupuncture and herbal medicine are on the fringe of the mainstream medical system. We are not currently equipped to operate like Chinese clinics/hospitals. Our primary function here is natural primary care.

If you are interested in learning about how the Chinese have used herbs and acupuncture to fight this virus checkout our Facebook page where we have posted several articles.


          In order to keep our community safe. We are asking at this time if you are feeling sick (Cold/Flu/Etc.) it is best to stay home and follow appropriate social distancing. Limiting contact with others out side of your home is a key element in preventing the spread of contagious conditions. If you have recently travelled from to Asia, Europe, or, Europe in the last two weeks it is especially warranted to take the per caution of self quarantine (14-21 days is optimum). Please follow proper hand washing and/or Alcohol based hand sanitization procedures. 20 seconds of scrubbing with soap and water, or an alcohol based hand rub of 70% or higher are recommended regularly.

          This is a tricky time of the year to be having this outbreak. We are at the very beginning of spring allergy season. Allergy symptoms can mimic the symptoms of both flus and colds. It is very important for us not to panic at symptoms that can be normal this time of year. There are some key symptoms that can be troubling and would raise concern. High fever and Difficulty breathing are the two most critical symptoms to look out for. If you are experiencing these symptoms seek allopathic medical care. They are offering drive through testing at several sites in Asheville. Feel free to reach out to us and we will point you in the right direction. Please check the image below for a list of symptoms of the actual Corona virus.

¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†We are currently using extra precautions with our clinic environment. We are using an atomizer with VitalOxide a safe biodegradable disinfectant that kills 99.999% of bacteria and viruses. vitaloxide.com Chris’ family is the main distributor of this product in South America. It is used in many hospitals across the world as a Hospital Grade Disinfectant. All rooms are sprayed with disinfectant before and after every Patient.

Online Sessions

            We would like to continue your care even if you are unable to make it into the clinic in person. To serve that need we are offering online sessions. Given the massive economic and social impact, we are offering these sessions reduced rate. 

Our current patients can receive online Telehealth video sessions for $20-45 sliding scale (45 min). 
         If you are out of work of in financial hardship due to these times please reach out for special consideration. Chris will be offering a free 1 time herbal consult session (15min) to people who would like to get herbs for immunity or other health complaints. We are working with 4 different herbal suppliers to ship herbs and supplements right to your door. After your first session we will send you a link so you may purchase your herbs. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Your health and safety is important to us. 
Take a deep breath.
Use common sense and simple precautions.
We are here to support you.

We wish you all good health.
