Growing our roots in Denver, Urban Herbs is the new standard in accessible Chinese Medicine, providing sliding-scale herbal consultations for the community and an unbeatable online Chinese herbal pharmacy for practitioners. With over 360 bulk and granular Chinese herbs for customization, two passionate practitioners, and a one-of-a-kind online formula creation system, Urban Herbs works to both support and unify its expansive network of herbalists with the ever-growing community of patients.

What We Do & Why We Do It

The guiding mission of the nonprofit organization, Urban Herbs is to expand the use of Chinese Medicine by supporting practitioners without pharmacies of their own, but who wish to offer the full scope of their training in the tradition of custom Chinese herbal prescribing. With an intuitive, secure interface, practitioners can quickly and easily create, save, and modify custom herbal formulations, and offer convenient billing and retrieval options to their clients. Urban Herbs seeks to do this work in a way that isn't simply about growing clients, but community - putting heart, not just herbs, into every formula we prepare.

If you prescribe Chinese herbal formulations and don't have a pharmacy of your own - or have one that limits your ability to customize - you have to make a choice about where you source your formulas. Far from trivial, this choice is not only about making your clients better, but doing so in a way that reaches beyond the well being of a single patient or office. This is important because Chinese herbal prescribing is founded in interconnectedness: when each of us does better, we all do better. Choosing Urban Herbs means choosing to practice within and for your community, in a way that truly embodies the spirit of the work.

We firmly believe that clients should experience clinicians working collectively, openly, and compassionately, for the benefit of all. Furthermore, that a commitment to this type of care is duly reflected in the work we all provide, makes our clients better faster, our medicine more widespread, and brings new levels of energy and professionalism to the field.

BECKY Burgess, MSOM, L.AC

Executive Director

Becky is board certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) in acupuncture and Chinese herbology and is licensed by the state of Colorado.  She graduated with a Master’s of Science in Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado.  In the summer of 2013, she completed an internship at the Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine Hospital in Harbin, China.  This experience left her humbled, inspired, and in awe of the breadth of Chinese medicine. 

Becky is strongly influenced by research studies and aims to provide innovative and effective ways to treat long-term, chronic illnesses.  She serves as the official acupuncturist of the University of Denver Division I athletes and has a passion for treating pain and physical injuries.  After witnessing the availability of herbal medicine in China, she decided to work towards expanding Chinese medicine’s reach in the United States.  She believes that providing sliding-scale herbal consultations could act as the foundation for making alternative medicine more affordable in urban environments.  Becky strives to treat every patient with care, respect, and the commonality that we are all aiming to be our best versions of ourselves.
