Your Herbal Consultation
After an Acupuncture session, you will be asked if you would like to take some form of Herbal prescription home with you (if needed). This will either be in the form of a small pill, called a “teapill”, or a bottle of liquid tincture, or a mix of raw herbs that you boil into a tea to drink. Instructions will be given for each different type of prescription. And often, a week’s-worth of Herbal Medicine will range from $10-$40, depending on the dosages and the condition being treated.
Herb prescriptions will most-often be written to “mirror” the Acupuncture treatment, and to help strengthen its message throughout the time in-between sessions. Herbal Medicine is a very powerful tool, and this type of medicine is very effective in treatment for all types of conditions (from migraines to thyroid conditions, or from acute pain or injury to diabetes, etc.!)
For those who are not interested in Acupuncture, Herbal Consultations are available. A 1st-time Herbal Consultation lasts one hour. A follow-up Herbal Consultation lasts 30 minutes. Follow-up Consultations can be done over the phone, in the case that you are on-the-go and simply need a refill or a slight adjustments to your prescription. Just as with any 1st-time visit to the office, you will be asked to fill out paperwork. Becky will also need to examine your pulses and tongue, so 1st-time Herbal Consultations will need to occur in the office.
