Chinese Herbal Medicine

What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Our practitioners stock and recommend Chinese Herbal Medicine brands, ChinaMed and Black Pearl, sourced from Sunherbal, a reputable Australian company.

Traditional Chinese herbal formulas date back thousands of years and some of these classical formulas have remained unchanged whilst others have been modified over time.

Why use herbal medicine?

The simple answer is that the combination of acupuncture and herbs gets faster results and may benefit more than one health concern at a time.

Are Chinese Herbs safe?

Yes! Fusion Acupuncture does not import it’s own products from overseas. The products from Sunherbal are approved by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Association) and manufactured in accordance with Australian Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). If you would like to know more about this topic, your practitioner can provide you with a fantastic information booklet on the safety and content of Sunherbal products.

Will Chinese Herbs interfere with my medications?

It is important to disclose any medications or supplements you may be taking at the time of your initial appointment. Your practitioner is trained to recognise if there may be an interaction between Chinese herbs and your current medications. Practitioners are supported during this process by documentation and phone support directly from the supplier. If your medications or supplements change at any time, please let us know so that we can reassess your formulas and find the perfect fit for you.
