Chinese herbal medicine is an ancient, highly elaborate system of natural healing that has been used by billions of people for all kinds of health conditions. Seattle Acupuncture and Coaching recommends and designs custom herbal formulas that are specific for your body’s needs and ailments.
Chinese herbal medicine is a wonderful complement to acupuncture treatments, as it works biochemically to support the energetic healing properties of acupuncture.. Acupuncture works on the level of energy by harmonizing the flow of Qi through the main energetic pathways of the body. Qi is how the Chinese describe the vital life force that flows within us.
Acupuncture is so unique because it is one of the few therapies that can manipulate the flow of energy in the body and mind to produce a therapeutic effect. In acupuncture theory, until chronic health conditions are addressed on the energetic level, the root cause or problem will often be neglected.
Chinese herbs are the oriental version of medicine and/or supplements. The herbs contain nutrients and other natural substances that can have specific therapeutic effects on certain organs of the body, such as the liver or kidneys. By working on both the immaterial and material levels, the treatment of acupuncture with herbs is much more effective and lasting.
