Tram Pham is the third owner of the Santa Barbara Herb Clinic, following in the footsteps of two of the more renowned Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners in the country.
Dr. Jean Yu is a Master Herbalist with over 50 years of experience in Eastern medicine in China and California. She founded the Santa Barbara Herb Clinic in 1982 and operated it until 1991, when she moved to San Luis Obispo and left it in the good hands of Dr. Henry Han.
The name and reputation of Dr. Henry Han traveled far in the holistic healing community as tales of his success healing difficult ailments spread. Han has been credited with saving lives and was heavily research oriented, working long hours on medical breakthroughs for heretofore incurable ailments such as cancer and Parkinsons. Dr. Han, whose wife Jennie helped operate the Clinic, passed away in tragic circumstances in 2016.
Tram is excited to carry on the tradition on impassioned healers at the Santa Barbara Herb Clinic.
We worked hard to create a Clinic where you'll feel comfortable and relaxed from the second you enter the waiting area til the end of your treatment.
