Welcome to Camelia House

Camelia House integrates professionals in alternative medicine, fitness and wellness promotion to provide a synergistic experience to the client.

Camelia House reflects a true collaborative spirit, it was created by people deeply involved in mind/body wellness. This center for alternative treatment incorporates Pilates, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, counseling and educational services, Rolfing, massage and skincare. Anchored by Wise Body Pilates and the Acupuncture Center of Acadiana, Camelia House has established itself as a leading resource for alternative health. Camelia House was born out of respect for life, nature, individualism and the need in all of us to heal and regenerate.

The Acupuncture Center of Acadiana was founded in 1997 by John Hebert, a licensed & board certified practitioner of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. A graduate of Samra University of Oriental Medicine in Los Angeles, John also acquired extensive post-graduate experience during a two year clinical internship in China. He is a certified Diplomat of Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine and has dedicated his energy to the foundation of the Acupuncture Association of Louisiana. John’s approach to treatment is one of integration: while rooted in the classics, he embraces innovative techniques for a modern world.
