Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine Athens GALike most cultures, the Chinese have been employing herbs as medicine for millenia.  The first compiled manuscript on Chinese Herbal Medicine dates back to the late Han Dynasty, around 3rd century CE.  Through the years as science and medicine have advanced, the Chinese Herbal Materia has undergone countless refinements, resulting in a highly sophisticated system of medicine where herbs are combined to have a synergistic effect on one another.  This means that herbs are selected not only for the actions they have on the body but for their ability to increase the effectiveness of other herbs in the formula.  Today, Chinese Herbal Medicine has developed over 1500 patent formulas using hundreds of herbs to safely and effectively treat a wide variety of conditions such as:

Cold & Flu             Fatigue          Allergies          Digestive Disorders    

Insomnia      Sports Injuries        Stress & Anxiety     Reproductive Health

 At 5 Points Acupuncture our formulas are made from whole, dried, minimally processed, unsulphured herbs. These formulas are then brewed into tea, which you prepare at home.  One advantage of using herbal tea instead of tablets or capsules is that we can take these traditional patent formulas and customize them to suit your specific needs. Chinese Herbal Medicine is effective on its own and is an excellent complement to acupuncture.
