Chinese Herbal Medicine

Over thousands of years, the Chinese have created and refined the most comprehensive system of herbology in the world. Today, scientific and clinical evidence supports what herbalists have known for centuries: herbal medicine works. 
It is estimated that one third of modern pharmaceutical drugs originate from plant constituents. Although modern drugs sometimes offer essential and lifesaving benefits, serious side effects and dependency are not uncommon.  Western drugs often suppress symptoms, but do not alter the disease process (antibiotics destroy bacteria but do not improve a person's immunity; diuretics clear excess fluid without improving kidney function).  Chinese herbal medicine seeks to treat illness at a causal level and strengthen overall health and vitality.
Herbs are more like food than drugs. They can supplement and fortify our body as well as prevent or remedy ailments. Achieving results with herbal medicines requires appropriate diagnosis and prescription. For therapeutic efficacy, it is necessary to have high quality herbs in the right quantity.  Acute conditions are usually treated aggressively for short periods and chronic conditions may be treated over long periods of time. Herbs internally complement & support acupuncture treatments.

Relax. Renew. Feel Better.
