Using ancient methods to heal in modern times.


Emily's Experience:

Emily Herbst is nationally certified by the NCCAOM as a Diplomat of Oriental Medicine. She earned her Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado, and has also studied abroad at Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine in Harbin, China, observing TCM treatments of stroke, facial paralysis, women’s health, and pediatric rehabilitation. She is licensed acupuncturists in the states of Montana and Colorado and is a current member of MAAOM (Montana Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine).



Emily is excited to be a part of the team at Riverbend Integrative Medicine, because she strongly believes in bringing effective healthcare to the Flathead community. She treats a variety of conditions using the Balance Method as taught by Dr. Richard Tan. This style of acupuncture is not only effective in treating pain but also complex and multifaceted disorders, and it allows the patient to be interactive with the practitioner during treatments and, in most cases, experience immediate results. She has recently been continuing TCM education with Bob Doane and Jimmy Chang. In addition to acupuncture, Emily loves the challenge of Chinese herbal therapies, fire cupping, and practicing Asian bodywork such as Tui na and Shiatsu.


Up Close and Personal with Emily Herbst:

When Emily is not working, she loves mountain biking, skiing, camping, and being outdoors with her husband Joe, their son Zevric, and their sassy little hounds, Ramona & Vada. When she’s not outdoors, she loves to cook, garden, knit, and hang around with loved ones.
