with Abby Wear
November 18, 2019
My name is Abby Wear, owner of Acupuncture and Apothecary, and I am a licensed acupuncturist and board-certified herbalist. I have had a strong desire to help people from an early age, which led me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I spent the next 15 years working in the pharmaceutical industry monitoring clinical trials and drug development processes. I worked with a large spectrum of disorders and diseases, both psychological and physiological. I feel that this background re-enforces my ability to provide well-rounded care to all of my patients.
Medicine is, and always has been, my passion. My personal experience with the healing power of Chinese medicine inspired me to leave the pharmaceutical industry and pursue what I believe to be my true calling at Daoist Traditions ‚Äì College of Chinese Medical Arts in Asheville, NC. I spent the next four years learning from some of the top practitioners of classical Chinese Medicine. I now have the honor of practicing hands-on caring for patients of all ages who suffer from a broad range of disorders.
