Chinses Herbal Medicine
The practice of Chinese Herbal Medicine can be traced back several thousand years, and is now used to treat a range of conditions including: aiding sleep, increasing immunity, decreasing stress, balancing hormones, reducing inflammation, and aiding tissue recovery. The Chinese materia medica contains thousand of plants and minerals, approximately 300 of which are commonly used today. We use granulated herbal extracts, which are taken in powdered form. The granules are the highest quality herbs that have been thoroughly tested for heavy metals, pesticides, and other toxins. Typically herbal medicine is often used in conjunction with Acupuncture in order to increase the effects of both modalities.
After consultation a herbal formula consisting of 5-12 herbs is created to treat your specific condition and constitution. *Please note that the cost of the herbs is in addition to the visit, typically a 3 week prescription of herbs costs about $50 to $60.
* Note: Herbal consults may not be covered by third party benefits. Please inquire about acupuncture + herbal sessions as an alternative.
