Chinese Herbal Medicine

This highly evolved science differs from Western Herbology. Chinese herbs are almost always prescribed in combination, giving the formula a synergistic effect far greater than the sum of its parts. These formulations of herbs are selected through a unique process called Ch'i Testing. The ingredients are tested in relationship to bodily response verifying acceptance or negation of the substance thus avoiding any contraindication with prescription drugs. Although the roots of Asian Medicine are thousands of years old, it is a living, evolving system of health care. Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect.

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.
