In Asia, herbal medicine is used just as frequently or even more often than acupuncture. We are trained in Chinese, Japanese, and Western traditions and draw from all three when recommending herbs. Herbal formulas are prescribed in the form of convenient powdered herbal concentrates, tinctures, or pills and capsules from Japanese, Taiwanese, and American companies that follow rigorous inspection and manufacturing procedures.
At Brooklyn Open Acupuncture, herbal consultations are available for the same sliding scale rates to enhance the effects of acupuncture treatments. For those who are nervous about needles, you may wish to be treated by herbs alone. Those with straightforward conditions such as colds may purchase herbs during an acupuncture visit if desired.
