What is the Difference Between Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture Treatments?


Both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can treat a wide range of conditions on their own, or they can be used at the same time.  Due to the holistic nature of Chinese medical treatments, each individual needs to be assessed on a case by case basis to see which modality would work best for them.  Often, I use both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine side by side for the most effective, efficient treatment.
