Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine involves extensive training to be able to customize herbal remedies to suit your individual needs.

The strategies for herbal medicine involve the oral ingestion of formulas (pill or tea form), as well as various applications of topical medicine (creams, stick-on plasters, compresses, etc).

History of Chinese Herbal Medicine

The roots of Chinese Herbal Medicine are as deep as their two thousand plus history would suggest and as varied as the many branches of a stout oak tree.  The history of pharmacological medicine itself is embedded in herbal medicine (ie: aspirin from willow bark, morphine from the seeds of poppy flowers, penicillin from fungus, digitalis from the leaves of foxglove).  

More and more, people are seeking to be empowered with alternatives to pain-killers, anti-depressants, steroids, antacids, inhalers, and diuretics. While pharmaceutical medications utilize specific chemical constituents to target specific symptoms in the body, herbal prescriptions are individually crafted to work synergistically to restore optimal health.   

A blend of Chinese herbs has the advantage of enhancing desired results, while counteracting adverse side-effects. Herbs are administered in the form of teas, pills, tinctures, and topical applications, giving each client the flexibility to accommodate their lifestyle.
