Herbal formulas are an essential component of Chinese Medicine. Herbal formulas consist of more than one herb. The herbs have different healing qualities. When they are combined, they work synergistically and harmoniously to treat a variety of ailments When we evaluate your condition we also look at your constitution to come up with the right formula for you.
Herbal formulas are separated in categories to treat various conditions. For example, the “clear heat” category treats inflammation and fever. In the “moving qi and blood” section we can relieve acute and chronic pain. In the “supplement qi” category we can treat chronic fatigue. There are 18 categories in all, and the prescription of a formula is usually modified, using herbs as needed from this variety.
