Dr. Anita Chen Marshall, DAOM, Pharm D, PhD, L.Ac. offers safe, effective Acupuncture and Herbs in Kailua, HIDr. Marshall’s background in eastern and western medicine enables her to provide her patients with a holistic approach of acupuncture and herbal prescriptions for their chronic and acute health conditions. This balanced approach also allows Dr. Marshall to collaborate with her patient’s other health care practitioners and provide treatments that complement other western medicines and treatments being received.

While Dr. Marshall believes that western medicine holds an invaluable place in the world, she knows firsthand the benefits that Chinese medicine has had on her patients. Her goal is to bridge the gap between eastern and western medicine; and to help lower the dosage and ultimately reduce the number of prescriptions the patients are taking. This will help provide the best possible treatment outcome and wellness for the patients and help reduce the sky-rocketing cost of medications.

Dr. Marshall is well respected in the medical community, getting numerous patient referrals from western doctors and other health care providers. She maintains a well-stocked Chinese herbal pharmacy and prescribes easy-to-use herbal powder concentrates from manufacturers with good quality assurance program and Good Manufacturing Procedures (GMP).
