After a thorough health exam a special herbal formula will be prescribed. Herbs are an additional cost to the consultation and come in a variety of forms (raw form, pills, granules, tinctures, topical plasters, and salves). Always notify your herbalist of any food allergies & dietary restrictions.
Chinese herbal prescriptions can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with acupuncture. They are great for boosting the healing process, supplementing tissues, and prolonging & strengthening the effects of acupuncture.
Chinese herbs consist of organic substances such as seeds, plants, flowers, roots, minerals, and sometimes animal parts or their by-products. Each herb is ascribed certain qualities and typically used in combination with 5 - 15 other single herbs to create a well balanced and safe formula.
