Herbal Formulas

For thousands of years, Chinese Medicine has relied on herbal formulas as a healing tool.  Over time, the essential nutrients and properties of literally thousands of herbs have been identified on how they interact with the mind, body and spirit. Many types of earthly materials, including ones that aren’t purely plant based, can have a significant impact on the energy system of the human body.


Following the holistic philosophy of Chinese Medicine, herbs are used in combination to create an herbal formula that is matched to the specific needs of the patient.
