Herbal Medicine Consultation

The use of plant medicines is one of the oldest and most thoroughly researched aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It is a powerful complement to acupuncture, extending the benefits of a treatment greatly.  Much like acupuncture, herbs can be used to regulate our internal balance, addressing common complaints such as:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Body pain
  • Common cold and flu
  • Fatigue
  • Menstrual problems
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Reproductive issues
  • Menopausal & peri-menopausal syndrome
  • Recurrent headaches
  • Hypertension
  • Stress
  • Mental-Emotional Issues

Herbal medicine can have a strong supplementing effect, providing the body with the energy it needs to heal itself, from the inside out.  It is a sophisticated empirical science, developed and fine-tuned over centuries of usage.

We offer herbal medicine in easy to take pill form, requiring no complicated preparation, as well as highly potent powdered granule formulas.  Prices for medication range from $15 for pill prescriptions, to $18 for 50 grams of high quality powdered herbs.

Please let your acupuncturist know of any of the following conditions before taking herbal medicine:

  • if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • if you are taking prescription medications
  • if you have any food allergies

These do not necessarily exclude you from herbal treatment, but do inform what herbs and formulas may be prescribed.
