Here at Yinova, we are dedicated to putting integrative care within your reach and giving you the power to take your health in hand. We do this by using any combination of the tools that Chinese medicine offers us as practitioners. From Acupuncture to gua sha, chinese herbal formulas to nutritional advice, cupping to dietary guidance – each of these modalities can be used to play an integral role in your healing process.

While acupuncture is our main service here at Yinova, I’d like to shine a light specifically on herbs. Chinese herbal formulas are an important part of what we do here at Yinova because they act as the building blocks that support your healing as well as our acupuncture treatments. Herbs can build blood, clear out mucus and help create changes internally, both physiologically or hormonally.

That’s why I am thrilled to share with you that we are adding Herbal Consultations to our services. Whether you’re new to Yinova, skeptical about acupuncture, or already a patient here, know someone who’d like to give us a try, there is so much that these consultations can offer.

Our Herbs

Here at Yinova, we believe that the efficacy of an herbal formula depends on the quality of the herbs that go into it. That’s why we put a lot of effort into sourcing the highest grade herbs from reputable growers. We blend our own herbal formulas in-house, which means we ensure quality control at every step.

It also means that we are able to compound customized formulas for you with a selection drawn from hundreds of herbs. Our combinations are based on classical herbal formulas that we modify to meet individual needs. With our broad herbal range we are able to provide effective formulas that do not require intensive preparation and are easy to take.

Herbal Consultations

In these dedicated herbal consultations, you will have the chance to speak with one of our expert and board certified practitioners about your short and long term health goals. You’ll discuss any therapies, treatments, medications and/or supplements you have already tried, both on your own or with other providers.

Based on this in-depth look at your current health, your practitioner will then provide you with a guided health plan tailored to your unique needs.

(If you are already a patient here, it’s worth mentioning that these consultation won’t provide you with different herbs than you would receive during an acupuncture treatment, what they will offer you is the opportunity to dive deeper.)

At the end of you’re session you will leave with a prescribed custom herbal formula (however, please note, that you may not receive a formula if you are on a specific medication that won’t react well with herbs), as well as with advice on any lifestyle or dietary changes they think might help you. They can also guide you towards which supplements might be a good fit for you!

These sessions will act as a chance to dive into the world of herbs alongside one of our experienced practitioners. Whether you’ve ever been curious about the herbs you’ve been taking already or would like to try herbs before you try acupuncture, this consultations should both provide you with a clear health plan as well as a deeper understanding of the medicine we use.

You can book an appointment online or by calling the Front Desk.
