Chinese Herbs are not as well known as the practice of acupuncture but equally just as important.  It's kind of like the right hand man to acupuncture in Traditional Chinese Medicine.   Chinese Herbs are based on the same theories as acupuncture and allow your therapy to continue when you are away from the clinic.   Various forms of herbs are used based on the patient's needs and lifestyle, including raw herbs, pills, powders, teas, and tinctures.  Each patient is prescribed a formula customized specifically for his or her needs and ailments to assure maximum results.
It's all about maintaining a healthy balance...If you think about the way the body functions, each of our organs work together to constantly maintain homeostasis, or essentially, balance.  Stress, diet, and environmental factors can all lead to disease or an imbalance of this system.   Acupuncture helps to restore this balance by stimulating our own natural healing capabilities using its vital energy or Qi (pronounced CHEE).  Acupuncture does this by the use of fine needles along defined meridians in the body.  The needles act like directions, telling your body what to do when it's not functioning properly.  Furthermore, the custom treatment  of acupuncture and chinese herbal medicine is designed to focus on attacking the root of the problem, not only relieving your symptoms, but also preventing the disease from coming back.  Disease is like a habit, and traditional chinese medicine helps to break the habit, treating not only acute problems, but chronic disorders effectively.
