HOW WE GOT HERE
The Road evolved from the concept that the practice of Chinese medicine is ideally meant to maintain balance and health throughout the aging process, rather than only when an imbalance or illness has set in.
Sometimes we get where we’re going in one treatment. But often, balancing the systems according to Chinese medicine is a journey. After all, healing from a chronic condition is rarely linear.
Every treatment and service at The Road is designed to help you reach your individual goals around the pursuit of health and well-being through Chinese medicine. These include acupuncture, manual therapies, herbal formulas, teas and internals, nutrition, movement and more.
AND THE ROAD GOES ON…
A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER
My past experiences have aligned nicely to bring me right where I’m supposed to be, treating your health challenges with a blend of ancient and modern modalities.
Now in my fifties, I totally understand what it’s like to look in the mirror and wonder, so this is “me” now? A lot of treatments offered at The Road are rooted in my own selfish (self-care) quest to be the best me I can be without relying on medications or resorting to invasive procedures.
I have carefully curated the finest tools and techniques in the industry, including organic and cosmeceutical skincare, customized herbal tinctures, internals, teas, and state-of-the-art microcurrent.
I’ve attained certifications in modalities like guasha, cupping, and the acclaimed technique of facial sculpting.
Please visit my Zen space and float home having learned what’s possible for your health and well-being.
MARGARET WEBB, LAC
Margaret Webb is a holistic healer with a deep history in the medicine we practice.
Margaret’s interest in holistic health started as a child growing up in Maine with a family that was interested in health and connected to the natural world. But it was also shaped by the experience of accompanying her father (a small-town doctor) when he made house calls. It was during these visits she witnessed the connection between a person’s home, relationships, lifestyle, and their overall health.
When she was 18 she had the good fortune to find an acupuncturist that helped her correct a hormone imbalance that Western medicine could not fix. She was hooked and knew that she would eventually pursue the study and the practice of Chinese Medicine.
An Austinite since graduating in 2006, she pursued facial acupuncture certification and began assisting for Elizabeth Duran Lac in her facial acupuncture seminars. While this experience solidified her interest in the connection between the skin and our overall health, she continued to work with a variety of conditions in Women’s Health and Sports Medicine.
A lifelong learner, Margaret spent her years after graduating completing an intensive program in Sports Medicine Acupuncture with Matt Callision as well as 2 years of graduate-level herbal studies with the Master Herbalist, Sharon Weizenbaum. She also completed the Pacific College FACE graduate program in 2021 and has had extensive training in specialized facial needling for cosmetic and medical conditions—including bell’s palsy and facial trauma.
In 2021 after closing her practice during COVID, she met Brooke Taylor @ The Road and her early interest in integrating skin care, skin health and overall healing came full circle. Inspired by Brooke’s passionate focus on combining the wisdom of Chinese Medicine with an elevated skincare experience she knew she had found her calling.
Margaret is also a mother, wife, dog-lover, hiker, meditator, and textile artist, and she weaves this lifetime of experience into every treatment.
A NOTE FROM BROOKE
I had just put it out into the universe I was ready for help, I had more patients than I could effectively support in a timely manner (eternally grateful to be busy, but knew for the best care, something had to give). I needed to close my books and focus on current patients, or expand - but had no idea what that would look like - how to find someone with similar passions and a deep understanding of the holistic nature of how we can treat the skin by treating the body as a whole. That is when Margaret walked in. She was a breath of fresh air, and I immediately knew she would fit right in. Patients LOVE her, I hear nothing but highest praise from everyone she works with.
I look forward to all of our upcoming collaborations and continued growth in both our professional lives and in how we help our patients. I owe a lot of thanks to Margaret for keeping us grounded and growing at The Road.
