Acupuncture of Iowa Iowa City Services Chinese Herbal Medicine herbs

An important method within traditional Chinese medicine is herbal medicine. First, a careful diagnostic assessment is made. From there, food and herbs formulas are recommended for the patient’s current condition, as well as long term health patterns. We are interested in treating the “root” of your problem, as well as the “branch” or the symptoms that are bothering you at the time.

We have a complete pharmacy in our clinic. For a given patient, one formula may be used for a while, then modified or changed as the patient’s condition changes. We can provide custom herb formulas or off the shelf formulas depending on the situation.

Professional oriental herbalists are trained in all acupuncture schools. Please schedule an herbal consultation to get personalized herbal assistance. Allow an hour for your visit.
