Herbal medicine is a major component to Traditional Chinese Medicine. It holds its own disciplines but works intuitively with acupuncture. Chinese herbal formulas are typically comprised of a variety of herbs that each contain its own set of energetic properties. Together, the blend create a harmonious relationship to balance the body.
Formulas are created and/or prescribed specifically for the patient and are geared towards their unique constitution. Middle Village Acupuncture stocks a variety of raw herbs that can be used as teas and as soups. We also offer patent tea pills that are easy to swallow.
Many formulas contain herbs that are often found in traditional Chinese kitchens. The philosophy is that there is little distinction between food and medicine. All food influences and affects the body. Therefore, all food is medicine.
