Chinese herbal medicine is an extensive “toolbox”, offering a wonderful adjunct to acupuncture where necessary. Herbal medicines are combined into unified formulas that address underlying causal imbalances, while also alleviating symptoms. As a trained herbalist I extend my understanding of each patient’s Chinese medical diagnosis to determine which herbal formulas may be the most appropriate. I use primarily powdered granules and create custom formulas for each patient. I also utilize capsules, tablets and tinctures for those that prefer these products. I use only herbal manufacturers that are safe and the best quality, tested to insure that they are free of pesticides, heavy metals or pharmaceuticals.
Many patients find the addition of Chinese Herbal Medicine an effective addition to their Acupuncture treatments and have noticed dramatic results with this combination.
