Michelle Bouton, L.Ac.

Michelle Bouton, L.Ac.

I 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.

Shannon Webb, L.Ac.

Many of our patients have already known Shannon as a licensed massage therapist over the past 20 years of her career. She provided massage services in our clinic before returning to Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine and achieving her Acupuncture license.

Her powerful experiences as a patient, along with her background in bodywork, spurred a strong interest to study and practice acupuncture. Shannon is committed to listening deeply to each patient’s concerns and to fostering a sense of safety and comfort during each patient visit. She feels particularly led to work with individuals experiencing digestive issues, anxiety, and PTSD.

While homeschooling her son, Shannon helped co-found Appalachian Learning Academy, a parent led, multi-age classroom cooperative, which provides a wide variety of studies and hands on learning for children grades K-5.

I absolutely love being the “front face” of this practice, I love people, and it is my pleasure to connect our wonderful practitioners with those who need their work.

I have lived in this area for over 15 years, and we love it here! I am constantly cooking or tending my flowers, my 3 daughters and 3 grandchildren, or my 2 dogs!

From your initial phone call to have questions answered, to setting up appointments, to handling insurance reimbursement questions, I am here to assist you!
