Candace Billings, LAc


Candace, a Memphis native, has returned to begin her Oriental medicine and acupuncture practice after finishing four years of studying classical Chinese medicine in Portland, OR at the National College of Natural Medicine, graduating with high honors. Candace decided to pursue a career in Chinese medicine after experiencing life-changing shifts as a patient of this medicine and coming to realize that it combines two of her great loves: nature and human health. The connections between humans and the natural world has long been a fascination for Candace, and after finding Chinese medicine, she knew it was the perfect fit to bring together her interests for the purpose of serving others. She believes that we all possess within us the innate capacity for health and balance.

With the tools offered by Chinese medicine, Candace will work with you to address your concerns holistically, bringing your unique vitality alive on all levels- physical, emotional, and spiritual. While she is excited to offer medicine for the whole family and treats a wide variety of conditions, she has a special interest in women’s health, fertility, pre- and post-partum care, pediatrics, pain, digestive disorders, fatigue, and emotional health. Candace uses acupuncture, moxabustion, herbal therapy, cupping, nutrition and lifestyle counseling, and various forms of body work such as tuina and sotai to treat her patients. She had the great fortune to complete a year-long mentorship under Dr. Robert Quinn in which she studied Japanese meridian therapy. This style of acupuncture is perfect for those with needle sensitivity as one of its most outstanding attributes is its focus on gentle needling technique.

While she’s not treating her patients, you can find Candace spending time with her daughter, Ella (with whom she’s quite smitten), tending her vegetable and flower garden, hiking or otherwise enjoying being outdoors, knitting, sewing, cooking and sharing meals with friends, or relaxing on the porch with a good cup of coffee! Candace is nationally board certified and licensed by the state of Tennesee, and she is excited to meet you and help you achieve your goals.
