Chinese herbal medicine is often used in conjunction with acupuncture.  Herbal formulas are simply a very concentrated form of substances one might eat in tiny amounts, like spices.  In this sense, herbal therapy can be regarded as a concentrated way of obtaining the nutrients a body needs to restore health. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine regards each of the hundreds of herbs used as having unique energetic properties.  It is these properties that are considered in creating an herbal formula.  Blended in the proper balance and administered correctly, herbal formulas can be used short- or longterm to improve and sustain health.

Herbal formulas are often prescribed as an adjunct to acupuncture therapy, as they are inexpensive, safe and highly effective when prescribed appropriately.
