Chinese herbal medicine is a form of traditional medicine that has a rich history spanning thousands of years, and along with acupuncture, is a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It involves the use of plant, animal, and mineral based remedies to promote health, treat illness, and restore balance within the body. In recent years, there have been numerous scientific studies conducted to prove the efficacy of many traditional formulas and single herbs.

Chinese herbal medicine utilizes a holistic approach that considers the balance and harmony of the body, mind, and spirit. It is based on the principle of restoring and maintaining the body's natural balance to promote healing and prevent illness.
Chinese herbal medicine treats a wide range of health conditions, both acute and chronic. It addresses not only the symptoms but also the underlying imbalances that contribute to the illness. Chinese herbal formulas combine multiple herbs to create a synergistic effect, enhancing the therapeutic benefits while minimizing side effects. Common conditions that can benefit from herbal medicine include digestive disorders, respiratory conditions, hormonal imbalances, skin issues, sleep, and emotional imbalances, among others.
During a 30-minute consultation, our skilled herbalists will take a thorough assessment of your medical history, lifestyle, and current health concerns. They will analyze your symptoms and use traditional diagnostic methods such as pulse and tongue examination to determine the underlying imbalances in your body. This personalized approach allows us to tailor a treatment plan specifically for you.
In preparation for your consultation, it is helpful to gather any relevant medical records or test results you may have. A detailed intake form will be sent to you to fill out prior to your appointment, and it is important to include any medications or supplements you are currently taking. This information will aid the herbalist in formulating an effective herbal prescription for you.
Herbal formulas are often prescribed in tablet or powder form and shipped directly to the client within 1 – 3 business days. Our herbalist will provide clear instructions on how to prepare and take the herbs. They will also discuss any lifestyle modifications, dietary recommendations, or self-care practices that may support your healing process.
We encourage regular follow-up sessions to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your herbal formula. Chinese herbal medicine is a gradual and cumulative process, and the duration of treatment will vary depending on the nature of your condition. Our goal is to help you achieve long-term health and vitality.
