Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is the foundation of the Chinese medical system. Herbal medicines are made from natural ingredients. Herbal prescriptions come in many forms such as teas, pills, powders, and raw herbs.  Chinese herbal medicine is used in hospitals in China along with Allopathic medicine.

Over 300 herbs are used in various combinations to promote a more balanced system. Herbalists are trained to evaluate and prescribe the correct combination of herbs for each individual to address specific issues. We provide high-quality, custom-powdered prescriptions, easily mixed with warm water and taken as teas. It is important in herbal medicine that prescriptions be formulated and developed individually. Each formula is customized for your individual needs based on your condition.
