Chinese herbal medicine is an ancient and effective way to support the body's natural healing process and create positive change on many levels. The herbal formulas I primarily use were created thousands of years ago, around 220 CE, and have been used by many generations of practitioners.
Chinese herbal formulas are unique among herbal traditions
in that they use many herbal components to create a balanced formula that treats the underlying cause of a symptom or problem, not just the symptom itself. Each formula is tailored to the specific person and situation, not just to the symptoms in order to shift the patterns and underlying causes of whatever symptoms are manifesting. Chinese herbal theory also focuses on the properties of the herbs themselves and how they act in the human body which gives practitioners a much deeper and broader understanding of their appropriate uses.
I have experience working with people and herbs to help manage and shift the following conditions:
- Menstrual pain or irregularity
- Insomnia and other sleep issues
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Recurrent vaginal infections
- Skin conditions
I prefer to work with new patients interested in herbal medicine once-a-week for two to three weeks with check-ins following every 2-3 weeks. I offer in-person herbal consultations for $15 for 20 minutes and offer herbal formulas in the form of concentrated granules for an additional $10-$25 for a week's worth of herbs depending on the formula.
For existing patients, I offer an herbal consultation add-on to any other appointment type for $10 plus the cost of the herbal formula ($10-$25/week).
