This helps the herbalist understand your overall health and identify any imbalances.

The herbalist will then perform an assessment, which may include observing physical signs like your skin, eyes, and tongue, as well as taking your pulse. Based on this information, the herbalist will develop a treatment plan for your unique needs and problems. This plan includes the best Chinese herbs for your needs, dietary recommendations, and lifestyle changes.

Throughout the process, the herbalist will explain the purpose and benefits of each recommended traditional Chinese herb, so you understand how to use them effectively. Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments.

Our Story

I am a West Point graduate (2009) who served in the Army long enough to get some health problems. Kung Fu, and by proxy Acupuncture/TCM, helps me manage many of those issues. The effects were so great I just had to learn it! Now I choose to help others like I was helped.

My wife had a sudden impairment of speech, stuttering and almost slurring. As well as twitching and shakeness of limbs and we received no information from the hospital about why or what to do. Our cherished friends invited her for a last minute session for deep precisionmassage, acupuncture and cupping after going over her symptoms the night before. After the session she was close to normal in speech and body control! She will undoubtedly get some much needed rest. Kyle is absolutely amazing. I would recommend a visit for anyone looking to improve their overall well-being!

I have suffered from neck pain and immobility for quite some time. I have tried chiropractic in the past with not much relief. I’m glad I gave acupuncture a try. Kyle is very knowledgeable and spent time asking questions to determine the best treatment for my issues. With massage/acupuncture sessions, combined with at home exercise , I am seeing relief from my neck issues. I’m very pleased to find such an amazing acupuncturist as Kyle in our small town of Kuna!

What a cool experience! I was feeling stuffy and fatigued from lingering cold symptoms and with Kyle’s expertise he was able to move the gunk through and out of my body. I feel 10x better, more energized, and I can breathe easier now. He was intuitive, careful, kind, knowledgeable, and all around a great practitioner. I will definitely be back!

Literally took my pain away. I tried chiropractor, Dr, medicine massage. Nothing worked and I was tired of crying. Thought I’d give this a try. It’s been worth every penny. Highly recommend giving him a try.

FAQs about Chinese Herbs

Herbal medicine is a form of traditional medicine that uses plants and plant extracts to promote health and treat various conditions. Chinese herbal medicine, in particular, has been practiced for thousands of years and involves the use of specific herbs formulated into blends to balance the body’s natural energies and address underlying health issues.

Chinese herbs work by targeting the root causes of health problems rather than just the symptoms. They are believed to restore balance to the body’s internal systems, enhance immunity, and promote overall well-being. Each herb has unique properties that can influence the body in different ways, and when combined, they create a synergistic effect that supports holistic healing.

The time it takes for Chinese herbs to work can vary based on the individual’s condition and how their body responds to the treatment. Some people might notice improvements within a few days, while others may require several weeks or even months of consistent use to experience significant benefits. Patience and adherence to the prescribed regimen are key to achieving the desired results.

The duration that herbal medicine stays in your system can depend on several factors, including the specific herbs used, dosage, and individual metabolism. Generally, the active components of herbs are processed and eliminated from the body within a few days. However, the therapeutic effects can last longer, especially with regular use. Regular consultation with a practitioner ensures the herbs are working effectively and appropriately for your needs.
