Chinese herbal medicine uses individual herbs which are put into multi-ingredient formulas to restore and enhance health. It is powerful medicine that has a long history of safe and effective use. Chinese medicine uses thousands of herbs that may be used medicinally. Of these, about 500 are in common use.
In addition to plant substances, Chinese herbology utilizes other materials with medical from mineral and animal sources. We always try to use products that are ethically harvested. We have the intent to help others whilst maintaining a balance with Mother Nature.
After a practitioner uncovers the pattern of disharmony underlying a complaint, an individualized herbal formula is created for the patient. While a single herb may sometimes be used, combinations of herbs into complex formulas are more common. Up to 12 or more ingredients are sometimes used in formulas.
The use of herbs with acupuncture allows for a way to treat both the internal and external, thus doubling the effectiveness of the treatments. This is why we strongly recommend using all the treatments in conjunction. You will heal much faster, and we will have more control over the outcome of the illness.
