Herbs Can Improve Your Sleep!

If you are having trouble sleeping through the night soundly, herbs will help!

You Will Have More Energy!

We include Qi tonic herbs in custom formulas when needed; these are not stimulants like coffee, but actually give you even-flowing energy throughout the day.

They are easy to take!

We put your custom formula into capsules and provide an AM remedy and a PM remedy in most cases!

Herbs Reduce Pain!

Like acupuncture, herbs have anti-inflammatory actions and help to move blood and qi to resolve pain. While you may only receive acupuncture treatments every week or two, herbs can work every day to reduce the intensity and frequency of your pain!

Herbs Resolve Root Deficiencies!

Did you know that chronic knee or lower back pain are likely related to Kidney Deficiency according to Chinese medicine; this is often true even when the pain was due to an old injury. Kidney Deficiency can also cause fatigue, low sexual energy, and anxiety. It is nearly impossible to resolve Kidney Deficiency with acupuncture alone. Effective Kidney tonic herbs are included in your custom blends when indicated!
