ginseng as used at Boulder Acupuncture and Herbs

At Boulder Acupuncture and Herbs, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional herbal care. In keeping with the time-honored traditions of Chinese medicine, safety, quality, and accuracy are always our treatment priorities. Through convenient, customized formulas designed to address your specific health needs, our herbs help you recover faster and maintain your wellbeing for a longer period of time.

Chinese herbs are frequently used for:

  • Colds and flu
  • Menstrual difficulties
  • Hypertension
  • Digestive issues
  • Allergies
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches

Chinese herbal medicine typically comes in three different forms: raw herbs, which require cooking; powdered herbs; and pills or tinctures. Our clinic uses herbal formulas from trustworthy pharmacies that stock safe, contaminant-free Chinese herbs prepared to traditional standards. All our customers receive their herbal medicine by mail, usually within 3-5 days.

Are Chinese Herbs Right for You?

For those patients wishing to include herbal medicine in their healthcare plans, please talk with our acupuncturist to see if herbs are right for you. Some prescription medications are incompatible with Chinese herbs, and not all conditions respond the same to herbal therapy. Additionally, because herbs are taken daily, often multiple times a day, it’s important to commit to a course of treatment to achieve the best possible results.

An initial herbal consultation with our acupuncturist includes an extensive health intake, pulse diagnosis, and herbal recommendation. For convenience, follow-up consultations can often be done by phone.

Initial herbal consultation (no acupuncture): $60* / 45-60 minutes

Return herbal consultation (no acupuncture): $30* / 30 minutes

*Does not include the cost of herbs.
