Chinese Herbs – Herbology


Chinese Herbs & Herbology

How do Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture work together?

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs work hand-in-hand because they work on the same foundation of of Chinese medical diagnosis. Chinese herbs have been used safely and medically in Eastern medicine for over 2,000 years. They have minimal side effects and when carefully combined and balanced by a certified herbologist, such as Nic Krueger, not only treat the main concerns of our patients, but also addresses secondary problems.

Chinese herbs range from “Food Herbs”, which are eaten as part of a healthy diet for nutritional support and preventative maintenance, to “Medicinal Herbs” which are formulated and combined specifically to each person’s body constitution, environment and symptoms.

Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs work synergistically to energetically reprogram and rebalance the body’s systems and functions.
