Herbal medicine is a specialized way of looking at nutrition as it is an integral and vital part of East Asian medicine. Herbal medicine may consist of but not limited to, bark, twigs, roots, leaves, flowers, berries, minerals and animal products. Herbal medicine can be taken in many forms such as soups, powdered concentrate, tinctures, or pills and has shown to positively influence the dynamics of the body by nourishing and correcting imbalances.
Cupping is a therapy in which cups are placed on the skin after suction is created. The suction of the cups increases circulation and thereby promote the healing of a broad range of ailments. Moxibustion involves burning mugwort, a small spongy herb, to stimulate Qi and strengthen the blood. It warms the meridians and expels cold. It can be used to promote circulation over areas of chronic pain or muscle tension. Tui Na is a therapeutic massage designed for the specific needs of the patient, used by practitioners to bring the body back into balance.
Like herbs, we believe that food is medicine, and it plays an important role in our bodies innate ability to heal naturally. In East Asian medicine, foods are categorized by flavor (sweet, sour, pungent, salty, and bitter) and nature (cool, cold, warm, and hot/spicy) and how we prepare and cook food will directly affect its nature and the way it is absorbed into the body. Depending on one’s constitution or ailment, we can provide food recommendations that will help you eat your way to wellness.
