Jade Turtle acupuncture at Essence Day Spa in Tryon

Published 9:46am Monday, October 22, 2012

Licensed Acupuncturist Autumn Zamzow has opened a second location of her Jade Turtle Clinic, now offering Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine at the Essence Day Spa on Storey Road in Tryon. Zamzow added the Tryon location at the request of colleague and client Maureen McManus, who previously practiced acupuncture at the Essence Day Spa.
“Maureen recently retired so she could do some traveling, but she worried about leaving her clients,” Zamzow said. “Because we’ve been colleagues and also each other’s acupuncturist for a long time, she felt she could recommend me and that her clients would be in good hands.”
Zamzow has been practicing at her Lake Lure Jade Turtle Clinic for 10 years. She utilizes Dr. Richard Tan’s Meridian Balance Method and specializes in orthopedic acupuncture. She earned her masters degree in traditional Chinese medicine after completing five years of acupuncture and herbology studies at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego.
