Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbs are intrinsic to Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs work synergistically and are often utilized together for optimal clinical results. The combination of these modalities speeds recovery time and prevents recurrence of symptoms. Health is more than just being symptom-free, it is about feeling great — physically, mentally, and emotionally. Once an ailment is resolved, it is important to maintain and improve the body’s health through the use of herbs as a dietary supplement. Herbs prescribed by our qualified practitioners are safe and well tolerated by most individuals, including children and infants.

What Are Tonic Herbs?

The tonic herbs are the elite herbs of the Chinese herbal system, the most fully developed herbal system in the world. The Chinese tonic herbs have always held a very special place in Asian culture. These natural substances have been associated with the highest qualities of living, and thus are associated with the ideals of long life, slow aging, glowing health, happiness, wisdom, physical vitality, adaptability, sexual vigor and response, mental acuity and clear intuition, love and compassion, and harmonious relations with nature and with one’s fellow human beings.  Tonic herbs help to regulate our myriad functions so that we can re-establish and maintain our balance, our adaptability, our vigor and our youthfulness. By achieving these goals, one can be said to have attained true “radiant health”.

Why Consume Tonic Herbs?

Tonic herbs are not only medicinal. They nurture life, nurture the human spirit, slow down the aging process, and they protect us on every level – physically, immunologically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. What distinguishes Chinese tonic herbalism from other systems has been the attitude the Chinese and other Asian societies have taken toward health. Putting the emphasis on promoting health, they have created a body of knowledge concerning the health-promoting tonic herbs that no other society or system has matched. Other systems have generally emphasized the remedial over the preventive.
