Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture form a good partnership with each other. They work to treat the person as whole and to address the root of problems.
The relationship of Chinese herbal medicine to acupuncture can be compared to maintenance of a water system:
When a water drain is blocked, clearing up (acupuncture treatment) the pipes (meridians) will allow water (Qi ) to pass through freely. However, when it comes to low water amount or low water pressure, cleaning the pipes (acupuncture treatment) will not help. In this kind of situation, one must change the water system, which is the main function of Chinese herbal medicine. In brief, Chinese herbs play a very important role in improving the quality and quantity of our Qi (energy).
The sources of Chinese herbal medicine are mainly vegetable, including roots, stems, leaves, bark, and flowers, as well as minerals. To respect animal rights, our clinic does not provide any animal-derived ingredients.
Chinese herbal products normally come in different forms – raw, powder, pills, tablets, or tea. In our clinic, we use concentrated herbal medicines (powder or pills) which are produced by a pharmaceutical factory which follows Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in the United States. Although the herbs come from different countries, they have passed all tests to prove the absence of heavy metals and pesticide.
