Herbal Medicine & Supplements

Chinese Herbology

Herbal Medicine is traditionally one of the more important modalities used in a Chinese Medicine practice as it works synergistically with acupuncture to rid the body of imbalances. Chinese herbal remedies are made up of several herbs where the balance and intersection of the ingredients are considered more important than the effect of the individual herbs. At Three Treasures Acupuncture, I combine acupuncture and herbal medicine to get the best results.

Kampo is the Japanese adaptation of Chinese Herbal Medicine. It literally means the “way of the Han Chinese.” The basic formulas of Chinese medicine came to Japan between the 7th and 9th centuries. Since then, the Japanese have created their own unique medical and diagnostic herbal system.

I am one of the few Kampo practitioners in the US. I studied this form of herbal medicine with Nigel Dawes, LAc, the master practitioner of this art in the US. I chose to study Kampo because it is a systematic approach to herbal medicine that relies on precise diagnostic tools. Additionally, I found that the granulations that are used in Kampo offer a higher quality than other preparations and are absorbed more effectively by the body.
