Boosts overall Health

The holistic art of combining Chinese herbs is a natural way of healing the body and boosting over all health. Prescription formulas are based on tried and true classical herbal combinations which are then modified for each individual. These formulas help to regulate the body’s internal functions and bring balance to the body. Herbal medicine can be used alone, or to compliment acupuncture as it helps strengthen the body in between acupuncture sessions.

Chinese herbs are selected based on the patient’s root and branches of illness as well as their genetics. These herbs are primarily plants, flowers, seeds, bark and roots, though some animal and mineral substances may also be used. Many of the herbs are adaptogens, which means they help the body adapt and regulate stress.

Bliss Acupuncture only prescribes herbs that have been tested to the highest safety and quality standards.

The food that we consume should support our health to help bring balance to the body. We help guide our patients through proper nutrition for optimal health.

It is important to eat seasonal foods as well as eat the foods that best serve the body’s needs. In instances of nutritional deficiencies, we will recommend supplementation.
