Similar to acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to help people feel better, more vital and live longer. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture are complimentary therapeutic modalities that are often used together in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions. Herbs may also be prescribed as a sole treatment or to enhance the benefits of acupuncture. One of the most appealing qualities of Chinese herbs therapy is the low risk of adverse reaction or side effects, especially when compared to pharmaceutical drugs.
An herbal formula is created by combining herbs into a specific formula that target disharmonies in the body. Each herb is characterized by its specific energetic functions and qualities. The mixture of the herbs creates a balanced combination that increases the benefits of each herb and minimizes any side effects.
Chinese herbal formulas can be prescribed in a number of ways: raw herbs that are boiled into a tea, liquid extracts, powders, and pills. All formulas prescribed are individualized for each patient; therefore we can address your specific needs.
