  Chinese Herb Medicine

Chinese herbs are a major pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is important to combine all pillars of TCM to achieve desired results and wellness.

Herbs are a variety of naturally found products that have medicinal properties. They add to the healthful benefits of acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine treatment. Of the several thousand Chinese herbs that are classified and described in detail in the Chinese Medicine literature, about 600 are commonly used clinically.

Chinese herbal medicine is quite powerful in its effect. In the case of certain acute illnesses, the effect can be felt immediately (e.g. sinusitis, bronchitis, hives, colds). When treating chronic illness or cases of deficiency (e.g. Anemia, chronic fatigue etc.) the effect may take some time often ranging from 2 weeks to several months.

Here at Acupuncture Care we have our own herb pharmacy in which the practitioner can customize formulas for each patient’s specific needs. The combination of acupuncture and Chinese Herbs work together to harmonize and optimize the functions of internal organs, acupuncture meridians, circulation and the entire body.
