Herbal therapy uses medically active substances harvested from plants. These therapies may be made from any part of the plant but are most commonly made from leaves, roots, seeds, flowers, stems, bark, and even stones.
Depending on the herb, they can be taken in pill or liquid form, inhaled or applied to the skin since they come in all forms: dried, chopped, powdered, capsule, or liquid.
We choose to use herbal powder instead of raw herbs for convenience and effectiveness as well as to avoid contamination and heavy metal residue issues.
Results from herbal therapy will depend on every person’s individual case. In acute cases, results can be seen almost immediately. In chronic cases, some results should be seen within two weeks, even though long term usage of Chinese herbs is often required.
Chinese herbs are rarely used individually. They are used in herbal formulas where multiple herbs are combined. These combinations are designed to boost an herb’s effectiveness or to counter potential side effects.
Why us? We provide high-quality TCM and acupuncture services while always prioritizing the client’s comfort.
