Herbal medicine and herbal supplements have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and also in many cultures for thousands of years. Herbs and naturally derived medicines have been proven to be both safe and effective in treating myriad conditions as well as for the maintaining overall health. At the Center, we prescribe the highest quality herbals and supplements available to help our patients achieve a state of health and balance. Generally, herbal medicine is prescribed in collaboration with acupuncture, or other TCM treatments to increase their effectiveness. However, herbal therapy may also be used as a stand-alone treatment — especially when a patient’s condition is well under control.
Like most Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities, herbal medicine is very personalized and completely focuses on the individual and their unique makeup. The exact dosage and type of herbals prescribed will be dependent on many factors, including the patient’s condition, age, physical makeup, and other personal factors. Muscle testing techniques such as Quantum Reflex Analysis or Morphogenic Field Techniques can also be used to determine which herbs will be prescribed. Each patient’s prescription is completely unique to them.
In addition to Herbal Medicine, a wide range of other Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques are offered at the Center. Learn about our other treatments »
Oriental Medicine focuses on strengthening and activating the body’s mechanism for healing itself. By using acupuncture, herbal remedies, supplements, and other techniques, the body will be triggered into repairing damage and will heal itself, thus achieving a state of balance. We are always delighted when we see patients progress from a state of imbalance — experiencing physical or emotional pain — to a place where they feel much better after only a few acupuncture treatments!
As a Natural Healer, or Holistic Healer, I strive to view each and every patient through a comprehensive model of care that encompasses body, mind, and spirit. Any imbalance within these three areas will negatively affect our overall health.
Being a Holistic Healer is an intricate part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and provides me with a better understanding of our patients’ needs. This is key to developing an effective acupuncture treatment plan, as well as a strategy that may include self-care techniques for patients to perform at home between treatments and a regimen of carefully chosen herbal supplements. All of these things will allow for an overall sense of wellbeing, better outcomes, and improvements in patient conditions.
