Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal medicine comes in many forms and traditionally involved boiling a pot of herbs on the stove to prepare a decoction. The preparation of decoction is often quite time consuming but provides excellent therapeutic benefit. Herbal pills and granulated extracts are more convenient modern alternatives to decoction that provide results that are comparable to herbal decoction.

A small proportion of Chinese herbal preparations contain mineral and animal constituents, however no endangered species are ever prescribed at our clinic. Special dietary requirements such as gluten-free and vegan are easily accommodated - discuss with your practitioner alternatives that are available to you.
