Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbs are one of the oldest and most evolved modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Originally designed to treat ailments thousands of years ago, Chinese Herbal Medicine has adapted to treat modern western diseases. Chinese Herbs assist organs and meridians to better their performance. Herbs can help with either acute or chronic issues. Taking Chinese herbs alongside an acupuncture regime enhance the overall effect of treating a pattern of symptoms without the unwanted side effects commonly associated with western pharmaceuticals.

Chinese herbs consist of seeds, bark, roots, plants, minerals, and some animal products. Herbs are usually combined in formulas to enhance their individual properties and actions. They are usually taken in the form of a tea, a tincture, or a pill. All of the formulas we carry are GMP certified (Good Manufacturer Procedure). This means that all herbs have been tested for heavy metals and pesticides, and have met the highest standard possible. There are many companies that produce Chinese Herbs, but few are GMP certified.

An herbal consult is included in your first treatment and will be monitored throughout the course of treatment. As your condition changes and improves, your herbal formula will be adjusted until your condition stabilizes or subsides.
