Herbal medicine is an important component of Chinese medicine. It has been practiced safely for over two millennia. Chinese herbalists were proficient observers who recorded much of the healing and pain relief they achieved, passing the best formulas on to future generations. Chinese herbal medicine is used effectively to treat a wide variety of diseases, ranging from the common cold to menstrual pain to extreme trauma. For best results, Chinese herbal formulas are often prescribed to reinforce acupuncture treatments and help build strength and vitality in the body. We can either build custom, granule formulas or prescribe classic formulas that are in easy-to-take pill, or tincture, form.
