Background and Experience

Browning Smith was born and raised in Russellville, KY. After graduating from Russellville High School, he attended Transylvania University, where he earned a degree in Biology. He then received his acupuncture training and doctorate degree at Daoist Traditions in Asheville, NC. Browning is grateful to have received direct instruction and teaching from Jeffery Yuen, Evan Rabinowitz, and Randine Lewis during his time in acupuncture school. Browning emphasizes a classical approach to Chinese Medicine and often employs the methods of the Fire Spirit School of Chinese Herbal Medicine. While respecting the historical roots of Chinese Medicine, he maintains a flexible practice appropriate for our modern setting. He utilizes 5 channel systems in his acupuncture practice and is experienced in the use of custom herbal formulas as well.


I have practiced and taught Chinese Medicine for over two decades, and have had the honor of knowing Browning Smith since he was a student at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts. He was more knowledgeable than any other student I’ve ever taught. I have been so impressed with Dr. Smith’s high level of skills, he has become my acupuncturist. His needling technique, knowledge of medicine, and therapeutic results are unsurpassed.
