Happy Summer everyone!!
As many of you know, we have been hard at work making many changes and transitions at the clinic. It was definitely time for a few upgrades.
Sadly, we said goodbye to Sam at the end of June. We wish him the best!
Moving forward, I could not be more thrilled about the 2 new practitioners, Kat and Tara, who are joining us at the clinic!
I am so excited to be introducing to them to you!!

Introducing Kat Harrod!

Kat Harrod is a licensed Acupuncturist. She graduated from Jung Tao School of Classical Chinese Medicine in 2020. She has long been fascinated with Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and other traditional systems of medicine that seek to support and work with the body’s natural intelligence for healing, and that view the person as a holistic integration of body, mind, and spirit. She also deeply appreciates the way that Chinese Medicine sees our well-being as being tied into our relationship with and interconnection to the natural world.

Kat was drawn to working with the Community Acupuncture model, because of her strong belief that healthcare and improved quality of life should be affordable and accessible to all people. She is grateful and honored to be a part of the People’s Acupuncture clinic, as well as the POCA collective, that supports these ideals.

Kat enjoys being around and learning about plants of all kinds, spending time in forests and near rivers, engaging in contemplative spirituality, attempting to learn various musical instruments, and getting nerdy about Acupuncture.

Introducing Tara Bunch!

Tara Bunch (She/Her/Hers) is a licensed Acupuncturist. She moved to West Asheville from Washington, DC to attend Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts, where she earned her doctorate in Chinese Medicine. Tara believes that the path to wellness lies within the relationship of mind, body and spirit. Through acupuncture and herbal medicine, Tara works with the body’s inherent ability to heal.

One of Tara’s first experiences with Acupuncture was in a community setting. The work resonated so deeply with her; she immediately knew it had to be a big part of the way she would practice. Healthcare should be affordable and accessible to everyone. She is so grateful to be part of the effort to bring this medicine to the people.

When she is not reading about Chinese Medicine, Tara can be found taking long walks around town and/or sitting outside enjoying the majestic scenery of West Asheville.

I would also like to express my deepest appreciation to the clinic administrator Leah Cheaney!
She is an instrumental force behind the scenes at the clinic! Thank you Leah for all you do!!
