Michelle Bouton, L.Ac.

(c) 2012 || jocelynmathewesphotography.comI hold a Masters degree in Oriental medicine, and am also a firm supporter of Western medicine. I encourage my patients to use BOTH modalities, each when most appropriate. I do my best to communicate with physicians when appropriate, to foster an integrated care approach.

I am a native Tennessean and have enjoyed working in complementary healthcare in Johnson City since 2000. Patients describe my style as “relaxed yet action-oriented.” I encourage patients to share their unique health story, then together we create a treatment plan to meet their healthcare goals.

I incorporate my knowledge of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, diet, and lifestyle modifications so that each person is supported in reaching their greatest health potential. I make every effort to provide consistency through pain or illness, which can be a difficult journey.


Jenna Hayworth, L.Ac.

(c) 2015 || www.studiomathewes.comI have been practicing Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the Tri-Cities since 2009, and have served as an adjunct faculty member at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts since 2012.

I was called to the practice of holistic medicine by my belief that every person possesses the inherit ability to heal and to live a full and joy-filled life. My goal is to facilitate each patient’s path to personal wellness, and to empower individuals to ask questions, seek answers, and make the healthcare and lifestyle choices that are right for them.

I am a graduate of Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts in Asheville, NC. Daoist Traditions’ four-year program provided me with a strong foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine, or “TCM.” As part of the college’s comprehensive academic program. I received secondary training in Classical and Five-Element acupuncture.
