With formal education in Eastern and Western herbalism, we utilize substances found in the Western and Chinese Materia Medicas. Plant medicine has been used from time immemorial on every continent and throughout all cultures. Clinical trials confirm botanical substances to be safe and effective, and without unwanted side effects, when used under proper supervision by a qualified practitioner.
Herbal consultations may be included with acupuncture appointments at no extra charge.
Standalone herbal consults are $45 - 120 sliding scale, plus cost of medicine.
We carry a wide range of options, including herbs that are safe for children, elders, people who are pregnant or nursing, have allergies or sensitivities, or are taking medications. With prices to suit any budget.
Many of our herbs and extracts are through sister business, Amphoterica Botanicals. Local herbs are organically grown or sustainably wildcrafted, then processed and compounded on site into traditional formas and custom remedies. Small batch medicine means herbs and ingredients are always fresh, relationships are cultivated with local growers, and plants are not overharvested.
Until the invention of the Patent system of medicine, Western doctors, pharmacists, and hospitals routinely combined botanicals with pharmaceuticals, and continue to do in many parts of the world with great clinical success. When used correctly, under guidance of a qualified professional, herbal medicine is both safe and effective.
