The Legacy of Source

In 2000 Whitney Madden, LAc, founded what was to become Source For Well-Being, LLC in Black Mountain. For the 14 years that the center was located in Black Mountain, over 32 practitioners served the greater Swannanoa Valley community as part of Source, giving a total of over 100,000 treatments. These practitioners included naturopaths, massage therapists, psychotherapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, nutritionists, energy healers, and other. Source served as a one-stop-shop for natural healing in the community it served.

In 2014, following a much-disputed zoning controversy, Whitney decided to close the center and focus on her work as an acupuncturist.  Over the past three years, she has integrated cutting-edge discoveries in neuroscience and brain health into her practice of Chinese Medicine.

Whitney’s next calling is requiring her to take time for research, consulting and teaching. Thus, she decided to sell her practice of 19 years. Whitney wanted to ensure that her beloved clients would continue to be well-cared for. She was thrilled to find someone with that degree of passion, wisdom and distinction in Conner Kees. With Conner acquiring Source, three dreams have been fulfilled: clients will continue to receive the care to which they are accustomed; Conner’s dream to live in Black Mountain and serve a wonderful community is fulfilled; and Whitney is now able to pursue her next vision and mission in life –optimizing brain health integrating the strengths of two medicines.
