Chinese herbal medicine employs the same principles and holistic approach as acupuncture. The two treatments are frequently combined. For over 5000 years, Chinese Herbal Medicine has been used to treat a wide array of ailments – both acute and chronic – in the body, mind and spirit.
An herbal prescription is a complex combination of as many as 20 herbs. Each herb works in conjunction with the others to enhance the effectiveness and healing power of the entire prescription.
The practitioner, Prasad Robert Hutter, completed a two-year certification program in Chinese Herbal Medicine at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute. He also has a Master’s degree in Public Health from Columbia University and is a Registered Nurse.
