Chinese herbology is quite possibly the oldest form of medicine on the planet. It is rooted in an ancient and rich tradition of plant medicine that predates written history. Just like the Native Americans living in the United States have their own healing plants, so too do the Chinese. Chinese herbology uses decoctions and extracts taken from plants and animals to treat patients. It uses a similar system of diagnosis as acupuncture, treating the underlying causes of disease, and is most often paired with acupuncture to make a more powerful change in the patient's body. Herbs are combined together in formulas which vastly reduces any side-effects that could occur from individual herbs. This is counter to how Western medicine addresses diseases, often using a single drug to treat the symptoms of a disease but at the same time producing numerous unwanted side-effects. Chinese herbs can help correct many diseases and reduce our reliance on potent pharmaceuticals. In fact, Chinese herbology is so effective that the scientific community has started to extensively study certain herbs to analyze their efficacy and understand how they work.
Herbs come in several different forms: pills, powders, tinctures, and raw. Herbs are particularly effective in addressing internal diseases such as female reproductive issues, hormonal diseases, digestive disorders, headaches, fatigue, colds and flu, asthma, insomnia, chronic illness, immune problems, and many more. You can think of herbs as internally correcting the body's imbalances, supporting health from the inside-out. All of our herbs are produced by companies in the United States who source from the very best farms worldwide.
We provide holistic medical care to individuals, families and children. We treat a broad range of conditions by using a combination of techniques including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, functional medicine, diet and nutrition, muscle activation technique, personal training, massage, yoga and qigong. By treating the underlying causes of diseases (and not just their symptoms) we help our patients to achieve lasting health.
