JulieAnn Nugent-Head MD (China)
JulieAnn completed her masters degree in Oriental medicine in the United States, and moved to China in 2006 to learn Chinese and study under two of Beijing’s most famous practitioners Dr Li Hongxiang (1924-2018) and Dr Chen Tongyun (1922 -).
Escaping the pollution of Beijing after five years with these great teachers, JulieAnn and husband Andrew relocated to the rural tea mountains of Hangzhou, living amongst the simple farmers of the Dragon Well tea village. While in Hangzhou learning to grow, pick and cook tea, JulieAnn completed her doctorate level medical degree in the Chinese program at the Zhejiang University of Chinese Medicine.
JulieAnn’s emphasis on the classical perspective of Chinese herb use has resulted in multiple articles in the Journal of Chinese medicine, and an extensive online herbal curriculum to reframe the modern application of Chinese herbs. JulieAnn lectures internationally and treats patients locally in Asheville, NC.
