Both science and art, Chinese Herbal Medicine is a sophisticated system of medicine
that has been practiced for thousands of years.
Used alone or in conjunction in acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine is based on
many of the same principles and is used to address both manifesting symptoms and
the root imbalances that underlie them. While Western medicines are often
designed to override the body’s natural functions, which can create other side
effects, Chinese Herbal Medicine is based on creating a resonance with the
individual by reminding the body of it’s optimal functioning when in balance. As
such, Chinese Herbal Medicine can also be a very effective compliment to Western
medications to support a person’s overall wellbeing.
Similar to a recipe, herbal formulas combine individual herbs that enhance and
balance one another to produce a more powerful effect. As a result, it is not
uncommon for a single formula to treat seemingly unrelated symptoms and support
an individual on multiple levels–from the physical to mental and emotional.
