Five Shen Herbs
Teas, Tonics & Herbal Remedies
"Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favor compared with the products of nature, the living cell of a plant, the final results of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life."
~ T.A. Edison
Herbal Remedies & Therapies
The use of Chinese Herbal Medicine has been documented as early as 2,500 years ago. Information has been gathered, compiled, formulated, exhaustively tested and handed down from generation to generation, from teacher to student herbalist. This system of herbology has studied and tested the herbs for their effects on organs, tissues, disease factors for thousands of years and meticulously classified according to their energetic qualities and their ability to address the disharmonies in the body.

Herbs: A Stand Alone Approach?
After obtaining a complete picture of a person's health and/or medical history, a pattern develops that points to the root of the disharmony or imbalance. After the traditional diagnosis, a treatment plan is developed. Your plan can include an herbs only approach or we can develop a plan that incorporates your herbal formula with acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture and herbs are two separate treatment options, each excellent stand alone approaches that can re-establish your health and vitality. However, when combined and used synergistically they compliment and support each other, this combined approach can be powerful as they are directed towards a common treatment goal.
