Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is an effective and natural way to address illness, imbalance, and weakness in the body. These herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to symptoms associated with cancer.

Together we can tailor a course of treatment
to meet your unique health needs.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been tailored to your condition. These herbs are combined to enhance each other’s actions and effects on the body, leading to a synergistic formula. The combination increases the benefits of each herb, and balances the formula to ensure the absence of side effects. The art and skill in effectively combining each formula resides in selecting the precise and most appropriate herbs to address a patient’s specific disharmony. Chinese herbs are extremely effective and only rarely have mild side effects, however it is very important to tell me about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.
