Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbs work to assist the internal organs in maintaining optimal function and balance. Through overwork, stress, mental strain, lack of relaxation, inadequate rest, excess or lack of physical exercise, and poor nutrition, our organ system starts to lose the capacity to sustain the proper balance.

Chinese Herbs are prescribed and formulated based on the unique manifestations of each case in accordance with the principles of traditional diagnosis.  They work to both address the symptoms and treat the underlying causes.  

As your condition changes it is important for your herbalist to re-evaluate your condition and modify your formula as needed. 

Herbs are administered in different forms:

  • Raw Herbal Tea Decoction
  • Concentrated Herbal Powder
  • Tablets and Capsules

Based on the advantages and disadvantages of the different forms, the correct match will be made for you to promote optimal use.
