An herbal formula for every condition.
Chinese herbal medicine dates back thousands of years and is one of the most clinically comprehensive form of herbal medicine. There are hundreds of specifically designed formulas to treat all illnesses we see today. An herbal formula itself is comprised of 10-20 individual herbs that work together to target both the symptom and the root cause of illness. With the right formula, you will most likely notice some change within a week of beginning the herbs. Working with a high-trained and skillful herbalist is an important part of achieving those results.
Jennifer completed extensive herbal medicine training while completing her Master's in Oriental Medicine and since has completed an intensive two year post-graduate mentorship with the renowned Chinese herbalist Sharon Weizenbaum. About 80% of Jennifer's practice includes herbal medicine in addition to acupuncture. She carries an extensive, high quality herbal pharmacy at the office, including over 75 single herbs to make custom formulas for patients. All herbs purchased are vetted for quality (tested for pesticides and heavy metals), company standards, and organic and wildcrafted herbs are purchased when available. Our herbal pharmacy also includes herbs in pill form, tincture (alcohol based extraction) and granules (which dissolve in water).
Herbal medicine is not a required part of treatment with Chinese medicine, but it can help quickly speed up the healing process and decrease your symptoms returning between treatments. It can also be used as a standalone medicine with or without acupuncture treatments.
*Distance herbal consultations and essential oil consultations are available by phone or Skype.
