Chinese Herbal Medicine

It is known throughout all branches of medicine that many plants have medicinal properties. In fact, many pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants. Chinese medicine utilizes the medicinal properties of certain plants. For the past 3000 years, these properties have been tried and tested in a variety of combinations to improve health.

Acupuncture is effective at balancing qi and removing blockages. Since in most cases, it is impractical to receive acupuncture every day, many cases require daily Chinese herbs. The herbs work over time with your body systems to add energy, kick out colds and flu, strengthen organ function, relieve chronic illness or pain, balance hormones, calm the digestive system or improve sleep. They are effective for relieving acute symptoms as well as long term constitutional support.

Our acupuncturists are trained in herbal medicine, and will be able to tell patients if they believe Chinese herbs should be prescribed for treatment.
