What About Chinese Herbal Formulas?
Chris is a National Board Certified Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, Acupuncture with Point Location, Chinese Herbology, and Biomedicine.
He will sometimes recommend Chinese herbal prescriptions as an important compliment to your specific overall care and treatment. Herbs work together with acupuncture to regulate the flow of energy and substances in the body. Together they stimulate the body's natural functions and encourage it to establish optimum balance.
Our Chinese herbal formulas are from the largest Chinese Herbal Pharmacy on the East Coast. Established since 1973, and extensively tested for consistency and safety standards, these herbs can be taken with confidence and assurance in their quality. They were the first FDA registered facility for vacuum packing herbs in New York City.
