Herbs — in conjunction with acupuncture or as a stand-alone– play an important role in the healing process in clinics of  traditional Chinese Medicine.  Above are a few of the conditions that respond well to herbs or herbal formulas.  We have had great success in the treatment of these conditions using traditional acupuncture and/or herbal formulas.

We use Health Concerns herb formulas exclusively in the clinic.  The herb formulas are ancient remedies; however the herbs are organically grown in California and Canada and formulated by the Health Concerns Company of California.

Health Concerns applies centuries of herbal medical knowledge, both Eastern and Western in its origins and the latest scientific advances, to provide herb products that will help us to achieve and maintain optimum health and energy throughout our life.  Health Concerns herb formulas are developed from herbal traditions that have been proven to restore harmony in the body.  Their herb formulas can help to correct system imbalances caused by stress, poor diet, even heredity.  The herbs facilitate in the healing of chronic conditions as well as common discomforts such as fatigue, pain, stress and digestive problems – the symptoms of which Western medicine may treat, yet offer no permanent solutions for.  Health Concerns herbal formulas can bring lasting relief to these symptoms and greatly enhance the power to heal

Patients are able to visit the acupuncturist less frequently after  beginning an herbal regimen.  Herbs heal from the inside out and are a  safe way to assist the healing of many disorders and discomforts.

The Herbal Formulas are specific to Traditional Chinese Medicine and are not sold over the counter.  Health Concerns herb formulas are available  through licensed Acupuncturists, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
