Herbal Medicine


Some medical conditions respond more effectively to Oriental herbal treatment than to acupuncture alone. We use the highest quality herbal formulas that have been trusted for hundreds of years. Generally, these are made of plant substances that were eliminated from the regular diet many centuries ago because of their powerful effects on the body.

Chinese herbal medicine is a highly developed art and science. The kind of herbal medicine we practice today is built upon a history of clinical knowledge that is well over 2,000 years old.  As a rule, a Chinese herbal should not be used long-term, nor without the prescription of a trained Oriental medical practitioner.


This is because they have strong effects, are complex to understand and are generally used only in very skillful combination in order to avoid any unwanted side effects. Oriental Medical practitioners have a minimum of four years of intensive training in Chinese herbology and then follow that with years of clinical use. We also rely on many centuries of recorded clinical use of these natural substances to derive the perfect, unique combination to treat a particular condition.
