Traditional Chinese Herbs

traditionalChineseHerbsChinese herbs are an important aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The history of Chinese Herbal Medicine dates back even before the development of acupuncture.

Chinese herbs are prescribed in formulas specifically designed for the patients needs. The herbalist will make a diagnosis and prescribe a traditional formula that corresponds to the patient’s pattern and disease diagnosis.

At the Ann Street Acupuncture Clinic we predominantly use patented pill formula herbs, designed to maximise efficiency and ease of use. We may prescribe granular herbs which are mixed with water and drunk, but we do not use raw herbs which require you to cook & prepare them at home.

Bush Flower Essences

Bush Flower Essences Bush Flower Essences are often used as an adjunct to treatments that are focused more on the emotional or psychological realms. The essences have been sourced from Australian bush flowers found scattered across our wild lands. Our trained practitioners can create the perfect potion for you, helping to handle a plethora of problems that arise within todays demanding lifestyle. Issues ranging from emotional family dysfunctions, to fear, to low self-esteem, to the inablility to be open to intimacy can all be addressed using these powerful essences. Taken as drops under the tongue, they are simple to use and an effective tool in working with our emotional disturbances, which often have strong underlying connections to the outward physical manifestations that we present with.

A Large Range of Liniments



Zen Therapeutic Tincture Liniment




Traditional medicine sees bruises, strains, fractures etc. as blood stagnation. Arthritis can be seen as wind and cold obstruction of the channels and joints, therefore herbs are used with the actions of resolving blood stasis, invigorating the blood, relieving pain, clearing wind etc. Modern medicine classifies these properties as anti-inflammatory, analgesic and so-forth.

ZEN is a combination of traditional Chinese and Western herbs used for centuries for the relief of joint and muscle pain and the treatment of traumatic injuries. The herbs are specially prepared with essential oils to enhance the analgesic action. ZEN is non oily, pure and volatile. It penetrates quickly with no rubbing needed. The special synergistic herbal

combination nourishes the underlying damaged bone, sinew and muscle promoting repair as well as relieving pain.
