Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine, or TCM, uses thousands of years of knowledge of the benefits of herbs — some of which we already commonly include in our diets — to support and enhance the body’s natural healing abilities. Through a careful and thorough diagnosis performed by your TCM physician or licensed acupuncturist, you’ll receive a prescription for specific herbs or formulas, tailored specifically for you, that can help improve many common health concerns.
Herbs Used in TCM
Many herbs frequently found in traditional TCM formulas may likely already have a place in your kitchen, diet and wellness regimen. In TCM, however, these all-natural ingredients, used alone or in formulas, are specially cultivated and prepared to maximize their benefits to your body’s natural function.
TCM formulas based on the plant
The majority of herbs used in TCM formulas are plant-based and are combinations of herbs, flowers, roots, branches, leaves and mushrooms, with ample case study evidence and growing scientific evidence supporting the intended use in TCM.
TCM herbs and formulas can help patients with a wide variety of concerns including:
Symptoms related to colds and flu (cough, congestion, runny nose, sore throat, etc.)
PMS and Fertility
Balancing Blood Pressure
Strengthening of the immune system
Patients can find relief for these and many other problems through acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
