Traditional Chinese Medicine is a form of health care that has been used effectively for nearly 5,000 years. Today it is used by approximately 50% of the world population. This ancient medicine is based on the principles of Vital Energy or Qi (Chee). Qi helps to animate the body and protect it from illness, pain, and disease. A person’s health is influenced by the quantity, quality, and balance of Qi in their body. Qi circulates through pathways in the body called meridians. Each meridian connects to specific organs and glands. When Qi flows freely through the meridians, a person enjoys good physical health, and a state of mental and emotional well-being. If the flow of Qi is obstructed, the nourishment the body requires to function optimally is not distributed, and disharmony occurs. As a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, I seek to affect the flow of Qi and access the body’s innate healing ability. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, along with the adjunctive therapies: cupping, moxibustion, massage, and dietary therapy are used together to treat a wide variety of medical conditions.

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Chinese herbal medicine can be used to expedite the healing process and to strengthen the body. By choosing the precise and most effective herbs a practitioner can target a patient’s individual health problem. Formulas are prescribed in a pill or powder form.

Chinese medicinal herbs | Eugene, Or
I have had the pleasure of working with Heidi for three years. I came to her for help with my Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have always enjoyed physical activity, but the RA had settled in my knees and was keeping me from activities that I enjoy, specifically walking. After six acupuncture treatments and daily use of my Chinese herbal formula, I am able to enjoy a daily walk. I still have occasional soreness in my knees, but they are not nearly as painful and swollen as they were before I began treatment. I continue to see Heidi every two to three weeks to maintain my progress. I can’t thank her enough for her help.
