Herbal medicine is a significant part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that is often used during a course of treatment. The actions and effects of the individual herbs and the combinations used in herbal formulas have been observed and tested over thousands of years. Herbs benefit the body by specifically targeting a problem and producing a particular result. For example – to fight an infection, strengthen a body organ system or tonify the body in general. Herbs continue to support your body and promote the healing process throughout the week and between your acupuncture appointments.
The greatest opportunity for healing can be achieved using the combination of acupuncture treatments with herbal therapy, if herbs are indicated for your condition.
Just as you would never take western medication without a medical doctor’s exam, recommendation and prescription, the same is true with Chinese herbs. ALL of the herbal formulas we prescribe are GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified and adhere to the highest standards to assure purity, potency, patient safety and satisfaction. The majority of the formulas and herbs we dispense are manufactured exclusively in the United States and are of the highest quality available anywhere today.
