Chinese Herbal Therapy

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Chinese herbal medicine is an elaborate system of natural healing that is an important component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Unlike pharmaceuticals, which target specific symptoms, herbal medicine targets the root cause of an illness and is even able to address multiple problems simultaneously. Its organic nature also makes it more compatible with your body than pharmaceuticals, and results in fewer side effects.

Thanks to countless generations of dedicated study and practice, there is an enormous catalogue of herbs available to TCM practitioners, with a wide variety of known properties and interactions that practitioners can draw on to tailor their herbal formulas specifically to your health conditions. Herbal therapy is best for internal illness, especially when used in conjunction with acupuncture.

Herbal Dispensary at Tzu Chi Clinic


Tzu Chi Clinic - Professional Herbal Dispensary

Here at TCC, we have our own on-site herbal dispensary, saving you the extra trip to the Chinese herb store. As an added bonus, all of our herbs come in the form of water-soluble granules, so you can take your medicine quickly and easily with warm water instead of having to spend hours at home carefully cooking raw herbs. We can also provide capsules and pills in cases where the granules might not be the best choice for you.

In addition to being convenient, our herbal medicine has a higher level of concentration, potency, purity, and quality than other granules on the market thanks to a proprietary extraction technique. You can also rest assured that when you purchase herbal medicine from our dispensary, you are receiving a product that has been screened for pesticides, bacteria, and heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, mercury, cadmium, and chromium. We believe that no herbal formula is able to achieve its fullest effect without using high-quality herbs.
