Chinese herbal medicine is a powerful complement to your acupuncture treatment.
Chinese herbal medicine is a very powerful therapy that can greatly complement the effects of acupuncture. Chinese herbs are typically prescribed in combination- the different ingredients of a formula balance each other, and increase their efficacy and enhance their safety. Chinese herbs correct internal imbalances rather than to treat symptoms alone, and formulas are designed to stimulate the body’s own self-healing process.
Because Chinese herbal formulas are catered to an individual’s specific symptoms, we strongly recommend that you seek the guidance of a Chinese medicine (TCM) herbalist while taking them. TCM herbalists have trained in the study of individual herbs and their properties, as well as the safe combining of herbs to create effective, personalized formulas and know how to safely administer herbs to patients taking other medications in order to prevent any negative drug-herb interactions. Our knowledgeable practitioners can help you choose the right herbal formulas for you. Please talk to us to find out if herbal medicine may be of particular benefit to your condition.
