Our Story:
Welcome To A Way Of Better Health

After two decades as a practicing pharmacist, Dr. Shipe realized that many of his patients weren't improving; rather, they were worsening due to medication toxicity. Recognizing the urgent need for change, he shifted his practice to natural medicine, concentrating on women's health as his specialty. This critical choice marked the start of a fascinating journey into holistic medicine, in which Dr. Shipe aimed to revolutionize healthcare by combining ancient wisdom with modern thinking.

Understanding the complexities of women's health and the need for a more individualized, holistic approach, Dr. Shipe curated a selection of Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies aimed at addressing the underlying causes of health imbalances. From acupuncture to herbal medicine, each aspect was carefully chosen to provide balance and restore harmony to his patients' lives. Thus, Women's Traditional Chinese Healing evolved as a safe haven for women to begin their transformation journey toward optimal health and well-being. With Dr. Shipe's vision and expertise, the practice has continued to thrive, empowering women to regain control of their health and embrace a new way of healing that honors their bodies, minds, and spirits.


What Our Clients Are Saying

"Dr. Shipe is truly one of a kind (and I mean that in the best way possible). He is SO knowledgeable and understanding and genuinely cares for his patients. After struggling with Western medicine to treat the same problem I’ve had for decades, I decided to try a more holistic approach and I am so happy that I did. I’m so grateful to have found this practice and I’m going to keep coming back."
