Herbal Medicine

Humans have been using the various parts of plants— flowers, leaves, roots, fruit, branches, and bark— as medicine for thousands of years to treat just about everything. Known as herbal medicine, it is a powerful addition to every natural health maintenance program and can be used alone to promote health and support recovery from a wide variety of health imbalances.

Our acupuncturists are master herbalists with decades of experience helping people target the right medicinal herbs and dosing that are of most benefit for each individual’s personalized needs.

About Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a modern term that describes a complete system of naturopathic medicine rooted in holistic and functional health principles and concepts that originated in ancient China. TCM aims to restore health and promote longevity by using various medical disciplines, including acupuncture, manual therapies (massage, tuina, acupressure), and consultation for lifestyle, nutrition, and use of herbal medicine and other dietary supplements.

Used over thousands of years in the East Asian region of the world, TCM has recently been incorporated into modern healthcare systems throughout Europe and North America, making up the foundation of a vast body of medical knowledge called Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). Many of the core holistic and functional principles of TCM have also been used as the basis of emerging models of healthcare in the West, such as integrative medicine and functional medicine.


  • TCM embraces a patient-centered approach, educating and encouraging patients to become responsible for their own health and wellbeing.
  • TCM aims on improving the functional core of the human being as the starting point for intervention.
  • TCM focuses in restoring balance to body systems by strengthening the fundamental processes that underlie them.
  • TCM centers on both the mind and the body as an integrated whole that must be balanced and harmonized for optimum health.


TCM uses its own unique and complete system of diagnosis that addresses health issues based on a root-and-branch diagnostic philosophy. In TCM the body is viewed as an interconnected unifying whole system, similar to a tree that is in dynamic relationship to its natural environment.

TCM not only takes into account the manifesting symptoms of disease (branch), but also identifies patterns of imbalance at the root of poor health. This allows our Natural Health Consultation to focus on all of a person’s needs simultaneously with highly individualized and complete treatments geared towards prevention.

Natural Health Consultation for Plant-Based Nutrition

Modern industrialized dietary patterns characterized by high intakes of processed, pre-packaged and artificially flavored foods, such as animal milk and meat products, fried foods, refined grains and cereals, and high-sugar drinks, are lacking in many essential nutrients that our body needs to maintain favorable health. Too many processed and denatured foods are being consumed and directly contributing to a long-list of avoidable health problems.

In TCM, there is no difference between food and medicine- food is medicine. Because eating the right foods is the safest, least invasive technique to bring about the most beneficial change in poor health conditions, proper nutrition is always the preferred first line of treatment in TCM to treat and prevent disease.

Historically, TCM promotes eating a diet consisting mainly of fresh plant-based foods that are the most vital and free from chemicals, preservatives, and over-processing. Generations of people have used the TCM plant-based diet to initiate good dietary habits that not only treat various symptoms and syndromes, but also promote health, vitality, beauty, and longevity.

Studies have shown that a plant-based diet helps maintain optimal function of the musculoskeletal, circulatory, nervous, endocrine, lymphatic, and digestive systems. In some cases, correcting nutritional deficiencies with a plant-based diet may be used to help alleviate symptoms and poor health conditions that have not responded well to conventional care.

The effectiveness of TCM nutrition lies in its use of a set of diagnostic principles that arrange various signs and symptoms of poor health into what are called patterns of imbalance. Patterns of imbalance help describe how illnesses begin, what trajectory they’re taking, and how functional health and wellbeing is impacted. In TCM, the goal is to identify and treat the underlying root pattern of imbalance, rather than just chase the manifesting symptoms.

Our Natural Health Consultation seeks to determine how various signs and symptoms are organized into a pattern that illustrates the condition of health. Taking into account your whole well being, not just physical symptoms, our TCM practitioners try to find out how other factors like your environment, constitution, lifestyle and dietary habits, and emotional and mental well-being depict a pattern of imbalance at the root of the current condition. Using the information gathered, our acupuncturists will outline a personalized plan for using plant-based nutrition, as well herbal medicine and nutritional supplements, to meet your individual needs.
