Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbal medicine is unsurpassed. Chinese herbal medicine has a long history reaching back several thousand years, and the resulting system is now used to treat everything from the common cold to symptoms associated with cancer.

Together we can tailor a course of treatment
to meet your unique health needs.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been tailored to your condition. I integrate local plants where ever possible into my practice and have the utmost concern for quality and sustainability.  Herbal medicine rarely has negative side-effects  It is of important to tell me about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.
