Chinese Herbal Medicine is an elegant and comprehensive therapeutic system. The history of the art and science of Chinese Herbal medicine stretches back over thousands of years. Some of the classic herbal formulas that have provided beneficial healing remedies for over a thousand years maintain proper health applications to this day. Chinese Herbal medicine continues to develop as it has throughout history: addressing the health of the individual in context of the changing dynamics of the surrounding environment. The ever-growing resources of contemporary scientific and pharmaceutical knowledge contribute to further understanding of these herbal applications.
TCM Herbal formulas are refined and adjusted to suit each individual’s particular needs. Herbs are combined to specifically enhance their individual properties and actions, as well as to provide a balanced relief of illness-related symptoms, and restoration of physiological balance and strength. The chosen formulas will address the underlying causes of illness, and support the patient's unique constitution.
Herbs are chosen and combined based on their nature, temperature, function, flavor and their corresponding meridian or organ system. Chinese herbs may be prescribed in the form of prepared pills or tinctures, granule powders, or as bulk dry herbs to be cooked in a decoction.
