Does it seem like you’ve tried every over-the-counter drug for your health issues and nothing has worked? We highly recommend trying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Chinese Medicine differs from Western Medicine because it focuses on preventing the root cause of disease and maintaining the body’s equilibrium, while Western Medicine temporarily relieves the body of symptoms.
In addition to expertise in acupuncture and massage, our clinic is largely centered on Chinese Herbal Medicine. At Washington State Acupuncture, we specialize in a wide variety of herbal remedies that are rooted in TCM. Also known as “Oriental Medicine,” TCM has been practiced for thousands of years, contributing to overall health and longevity of people. Our clinic’s selection of herbal medicine is available to help alleviate illnesses and promote well being.
Washington State Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Center sells our supplements and herbal remedies in store and a select few products online at amazon.com. We specialize in internal medicine for women’s health, gynecology, and OBGYN. Our internal supplements also cater to digestive issues, diabetes, and natural energy (Life Chi).
Chinese herbs are used to prevent and treat illness, assist in diagnosis, and heal/balance the human body, mind and emotions. The herbs are natural substances—they come from plants, animals, or minerals. They contain five tastes, similar to food, that each have different properties: sweet, sour, bitter, salty, acrid.
Chinese patent herbs are made from traditional formulas and prepared into forms that are easy to consume such as pills, tablets, capsules or powders.
Herbs can help balance the organ’s yin and yang and invigorate the Qi (vital energy) and blood flow. It is a step-by-step treatment process that progressively works to heal the patient. Unlike Western Medicine, our herbs have minimal side effects and do not leave toxic residue in the body. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs, when used in combination, increase the effectiveness of each treatment and the healing process.
