Knoxville’s Resource for Chinese Herbs & Acupuncture

Michael Norris established Deep River Wellness Center in 1999 to bring the best of Eastern medical traditions to Knoxville. Since then he has helped many patients to achieve pain control and healing using acupuncture and Chinese herbs.
Chinese medicine is based on the elements of wind, cold, heat and damp. Sometimes, through diet or other lifestyle factors, one or another of these elements become unbalanced, causing health problems. By using a corrective diet, herbs and acupuncture you can rebalance your body and bring health back into your life.

Michael Norris is a master of Oriental medicine, including acupuncture, and Chinese herbology.

How It Works

After a thorough review of your history and discussion/examination, you will embark on your journey of healing with Michael.
You will find the experience of acupuncture itself to be rather relaxing. After the hair-thin needles are inserted, you relax while listening to soothing music. Many patients will drift off to sleep during the therapy.
Augmenting the acupuncture, Michael will customize an herbal and diet regimen to help your body heal and balance.

“I started with visits two or three times a week and the herbs Michael recommended. Gradually my cough diminished so
that now it is rare.…Even more important, at age 78, I’m feeling great! Thank you, Michael!”
