As an adjunct to my Acupuncture treatments, when needed if I believe a patient would benefit from a course of herbal medicine I use a variety of patent and tailored herbal prescriptions that can be posted directly to the patient within 24-48 hours.
Whist I am happy to include a herbal consultation during the acupuncture treatment, separate half hour herbal consultations are also available.
I use patented pill or capsule formulas from ‘Black Pearl’, ‘China Med’, ‘Red Peony’ and ‘Panaxea’ as well as tailored personal formulas. Tailored prescriptions arrive in 24-48 hours from the consultation and consist of a granulated herbal tea that is sent online through a company called ‘The Herb Booth’. The formula is made using the highest quality granulated herbs from China which are posted directly to the patient in a sealed envelope suitable for receiving in a standard letterbox, meaning that you won’t need the inconvenience of waiting at the clinic for herbs, or having to travel to the post office to pick them up.
The Herb Booth is the first and only Chinese herbal medicine dispensary in Australia to hold a license to manufacture therapeutic goods. The individualized formulas they dispense have built into them an unprecedented and unmatched level of quality.
