Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine utilizes the same philosophy and diagnostic tools as acupuncture to diagnose a patient. An herbal prescription is then custom designed by the practitioner. Several different forms of Chinese Herbs are available today – at The Well we use either patent herbal medicines (pills) or concentrated herbal powders, which are mixed with hot water and taken as a tea. Herbs can be used on their own or in conjunction with acupuncture treatments to augment the therapeutic effect.
