Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) includes many modalities in which medical treatments are executed. One of these modalities is herbal treatment. Herbal medicine allows the patient to benefit daily from thousands of years of medical knowledge and practice, at a considerably low cost compared to many forms of treatment.


The Chinese tradition of herbal medicine incorporates what is called "poly-pharmacy" in which multiple herbs are combined in order to address the specific presentation of each individual while minimizing, or eliminating, the side effects which might occur with single herb applications.​​

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

Traditional forms of acupuncture are the most widely practiced with numerous styles based off numerous systems of theories. Each style has a unique and nuanced interpretation and execution of the traditional theories of acupuncture based on the classic texts hundreds to thousands of years old.
