People around the world have used plants as medicine throughout history. In China, a sophisticated system of diagnosis and treatment has developed over thousands of years. Chinese herbal medicine can be used to address varied and complicated presentations such as headaches, menstrual pain and irregularity, digestive issues and insomnia. It can be used as a stand-alone treatment or as a complement to acupuncture.
Judith Kenen and Jim Gordon are both Chinese medicine herbalists and acupuncturists with 30 years of combined experience. They are well versed in both modern TCM formulas as well as Classical formulas and have studied with Heiner Fruehauf, Sharon Weizenbaum and Thea Elijah.
Treatment involves a comprehensive intake. Your practitioner will then prescribe and provide you with an individualized formula made from their in-house herbal dispensary. The formula will be in a powder form that you mix with water and take daily. Your practitioner will stay in close contact with you, adjusting your formula to meet your needs as symptoms improve.
