We are excited to announce that we are now offering Chinese herbs to patients at City Acupuncture Circle!
Chinese herbs are a safe and effective modality for addressing conditions ranging from allergies and sleep issues to fibroids and back pain. Like acupuncture, herbs have been used for centuries with their use being refined and developed over time.
Our herbs are sold as granules, which is a powdered form of the herb that dissolves in hot water. This is an extremely simple and effective way to take herbs. All herbs are purchased from reputable sellers and are free of heavy metals, pesticides, and other pollutants.
Chinese herbs also compliment acupuncture treatments very well. On days that you cannot come get acupuncture, herbs can be taken to extend and strengthen the efficacy of acupuncture treatments. Read about how herbs are being studied extensively for their clinical efficacy, including the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize for medicine, whose research explored how a Chinese herb helps to treat malaria and other infectious diseases.
Our new acupuncturists, Geoff Edwards and Nancy Xiang, as well as Seth Shamon, all have extensive training in the use of herbs and can recommend a formula for you. Come in and ask about it at your next treatment!
