Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the most important parts of East Asian Medicine treatment.  Prescribed by a trained practitioner, herbal medicine is very effective, gentle and safe to use.  Herbal medicine can be used for any age and constitution, including children and pregnant women.

Chinese herbal medicines have antiviral, antibacterial and immunomodulating properties.  Each herb has a specific interaction with the body and when combined, the synergistic effect of the herbs can be profound and provide long-lasting changes to improve your health.

Each herbal prescription is custom made for each person.  An herbal prescription usually combines six to fourteen herbs.  It may be given as raw herbs to cook and drink as a tea, as a tincture, as powdered concentrates, as pills or capsules.
