What is Chinese Medicine, and how can it benefit me?
Chinese Medicine originated over 6 thousand years ago. It is the herbal component of traditional Chinese medical practices.
Individual herbs are combined and prescribed in complex formulations to minister to each individual’s personal needs. These special herbs are an important element that an Acupuncturist uses as a tool for healing.
Specific herbs treat the various organs such as the heart, liver, kidney, lung or spleen as well as other parts of the body. For example, if you have an injury, Chinese herbs that increase circulation and reduce inflammation are used. Also, if you are fatigued or stressed, there are herbs to strengthen your Qi (pronounced “Chee”) that will increase the energy flow in your body.
