Blue Poppy Enterprises


For over 40 years, Blue Poppy has been committed to strengthening the practice of Chinese medicine by providing clinically relevant information and products which practitioners can use to more effectively treat their patients and run their practice.

In the United States we are perhaps now into the third or fourth generation of TCM practitioners. Blue Poppy was founded by Bob Flaws and Honora Wolfe—both first generation TCM pioneers, both firmly committed and tireless in their efforts to establish and support our fledgling profession. Bob and Honora are now enjoying a well-deserved retirement, but Blue Poppy continues to thrive.

Blue Poppy Enterprises was born from the vision to address an important need in the early years of our AOM profession: Books about TCM in English. In those days there were almost no written materials for students, and so Blue Poppy started a publishing house and built an impressive catalogue of books. Bob and Honora also began offering educational seminars to augment the meager education available at the few schools that existed.

When the lack in educational materials was no longer a burning issue, Blue Poppy moved on to address another problem: Quality herb materials and formulas that addressed the unique complaints of American patients. And so Blue Poppy herbal products were conceived and born.

Five years ago Blue Poppy embarked on another mission: To manufacture needles that offered the best quality available at an affordable price. We are happy to say that we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams with our Balance and Tempo needle lines.

All along Blue Poppy has prospered by supporting the profession 100%. We are, and have always been, committed to doing our part to establish Chinese Medicine in the US as a legitimate and respected profession. We hire licensed practitioners to take your calls so that you have knowledgeable service; we support acupuncture projects in the developing world by donating needles, and we support our professional organizations. This is who we are.
