Chinese herbs are often customized and used to support an individual's health either for acute illness or for chronic conditions. Chinese herbalism views the body as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. Yin represents receptivity, while yang represents activity. All of life is a complex interplay of yin and yang. Chinese herbs take into account this complexity and address it using bio-active substances. These substances come from the medicinal aspects of plants, minerals, shells, insects, or animals. The medicinal parts are harvested or extracted, and then used in teas, pills, capsules, lozenges, powders, ointments, and liquid tinctures.

What to Expect in a Chinese Herbal Session
When not combined with acupuncture, each visit last approximately 1 hour. During the first session, information is gathered regarding your health history, and body systems; and a Chinese medicine physical exam is conducted. From this information, a Chinese herbal remedy is determined.
The subsequent visits review any changes to your health, body systems, and main goals. These changes help to determine any adjustments to your Chinese herbs.
