Acupuncture and Herbs

Herb formula for sciatica



Chinese medicine is called holistic because we listen to the patient’s complaints, and think about how they are related.  Every organ’s function can have an affect on another one.  It is also considered “complementary” because it works very well in conjunction with other forms of medicine.
