Acupuncture is a standalone modality. But what about clients who cannot attend on a regular basis or make all the visits? What about internal medicine cases, like IBD, renal disease, epilepsy, what else can you do to augment treatment? Chinese herbal medicine is easy to incorporate into your practice, especially with a TCM diagnosis. We will discuss the basic principles of Chinese herbal medicine, how herbs work and the evidence base. Followed by typical cases which are easy to identify in practice and will benefit from herb use. There will be time for questions too.


  1. Be able to use three Chinese herbal formulas safely and effectively to augment acupuncture treatment.
  2. Be able to describe how Chinese herbs work biomedically and why they can be so useful in veterinary medicine.
