Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine is a deeply integrated part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Chinese Herbal Medicine has been used for thousands of years and is considered fundamental therapy for many acute and chronic conditions. Like acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Therapy can address unhealthy patterns in the body that manifest as a variety of symptoms. The aims of Chinese Herbal Therapy are to help you regain balance in your body and to strengthen your body's resistance to disease.
*The first steps of your treatment plan will also be provided at your
appointment, so you can get started right away*
Your initial consultation will be 60 minutes in length. During this visit, your therapist reviews your medical history, your specific concerns, and your health goals. Your therapist will perform a complaint-oriented set of diagnostic procedures.
A comprehensive individualized Herbal treatment plan will be made specifically for you to meet your health goals.
A 45 min follow up is focused on education and diving more into key health concepts relating to your condition. 45 min visits are also recommended if the patient has not seen the therapist in an extended period of time (3 months or more).
Your therapist will review your initial treatment plan, and work with you to develop the next steps and further elaborate on specific treatment protocols based on the progress to date.
Regular follow-up visits are typically 30 min. Visits are scheduled based on the needs of your specific treatment plan, and will focus on monitoring progress, adapting and assisting positive changes as we move towards your health goals.
Chinese Herbs are most often compounded together into a custom formula that is specific to the patient's condition, diagnosis, and constitution. As the person's health improves and the nature of the imbalance changes, so does the formula; some herbs are removed while others are added to facilitate the progression of the changing condition.
