Blue Ridge Acupunture and Integrative Health
Torrey Gorla, NMD, M.S. Oriental Medicine, L.Ac.

At Blue Ridge Acupuncture & Integrative Health (BRAIH), we believe in restoring the body to health naturally. We do this by identifying and treating the root cause of the disease or imbalance and not just treating the symptoms.

Blue Ridge Acupuncture & Integrative Health is a general Oriental Medical Practice, treating a wide variety of chronic and acute disorders. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine have been cited by the World Health Organization to be proven effective in treating over 50 conditions.

We are more than an acupuncture practice. Acupuncture is just one of the modalities we offer. Other treatment methods we use are Chinese Herbal Medicine and nutritional medicines. We can further assess patients by testing hormones or running preventative blood work. We don’t have a “one size fits all protocol.” Each person’s needs are addressed individually and his or her health care is specifically customized. And most importantly, we believe in empowering patients with knowledge, so they can make the best healthcare and lifestyle choices with confidence.

Our purpose at Blue Ridge Acupuncture & Integrative Health is to help as many people as possible in their quest for optimal health and to educate them about wellness, so they may, in turn, educate others. We achieve this by treating the underlying cause of the condition, not just masking symptoms. As an integrative health clinic, our clinicians work as a team offering Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine, Medical Weight Loss, ALCAT-Advanced Food Intolerance Testing, and Pain-Focused Physical Medicine.

Our practice is unique because we combine Eastern Medical care with a Western Science approach. Lab testing for adrenals/hormones, toxicity issues, minerals, and inflammation may be necessary to assess the cause of the condition. Our goal is to find the CAUSE of the disorder and achieve correction, thus health.

Torrey’s Internships and Externships include Women’s Health, Anxiety/Depression, Integrated Oncology (St. Vincent’s Hospital), Japanese Acupuncture, and Pain Management. Commonly seen disorders include allergies, high blood pressure, Ob/Gyn, digestive, fatigue, immune deficiency, respiratory, pain (all types), insomnia, anxiety, depression, oncology (integrated), neurological and dermatological conditions.

Please call our office regarding any specific conditions or health concerns.

Many conditions can be treated effectively with Chinese Herbal Medicine and/or nutritional therapies in a way that works for both your health and your budget.

Nutritional assessments include Tissue Mineral Analysis and Gene SNP.
