• Herbal Medicine

    Raw herbs are pictured here but I usually recommend either teas, pills or tablets. Making your own tea requires a commitment of time and expense and an adventurous palette! If you prefer that direct experience, I have herbal pharmacies that can supply raw herb formulas.

  • Essential Oils

    Sometimes the use of an essential oil or a blend of several can add greatly to treatment. It's also a way to remind the body of the healing process, both from the smell and the effects of the oils' chemical constituents on the system.

  • Liniments and Plasters

    There are many liniments, plasters and tinctures in the Chinese medicine cabinet. Some are better for bone healing, some for pain and stagnation. Most contain menthol, camphor and borneol along with other herbs to augment their actions.
