How Chinese Herbal Remedies Can Help You
When you come in for an acupuncture treatment, we investigate your internal energy channels, known as qi, and determine how and where their flows are disrupted. Once our acupuncturist and herbalist has identified where your energy flows are imbalanced, he can address those externally through acupuncture and internally through Chinese herbal medicine.
The power of an herbal medicine lies in the fact that it has been designed specifically for the individual in order to restore health and balance by treating the root of a client’s condition, not just masking symptoms. The herbal remedy prescribed may be in the form of a tincture, pill or raw or powdered herb blend which is then prepared as a tea. Herbs are considered to have few or no side effects compared to western pharmaceuticals.
We prescribe Chinese herbal medicine to aid in the treatment of the following:
- Lack of blood flow
- Hot flashes
- Temperature imbalances
- Organs that aren’t functioning properly
- Dry mouth
- Loose stools
- Bad breath
- Irritability and anger
- Rejuvenation for those in older age
