Herbal Consultations

White Lotus Acupuncture offers Chinese herbal consultations as stand-alone sessions or paired along with your private acupuncture session.  Carla Giannobile is an NCCAOM board certified Acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist with years of experience and extended herbal training.

Chinese herbal decoction

White Lotus offers Chinese herbal consultations that address your particular health concerns.  If you have an issue that you would like to discuss regarding the use of Chinese herbs please contact the office.  Note that it is not necessary to receive acupuncture treatment to benefit from Chinese herbal medicine, however combining both therapies can quicken the healing process. 

Chinese herbal consultations entail a thorough review of your medical history and health complaints for which you are seeking treatment. Herbal formulas vary in price depending on type of formula delivery and preparation as well as herbal ingredients.  Optimal preparation is a raw herbal decoction made from dried herbs, which can be customized to suit your particular issues; raw formulas can be cooked at home or ordered in vacuum packs for convenience.  White Lotus uses Kamwo Meridian Herbs in New York City with raw herbal formula orders.  Options besides raw preparation are alcohol based tinctures, pills, tablets, or granules, some of which can be customized. 

Chinese herbal consultation fee includes an initial consultation and weekly brief follow-up sessions via email or phone for 4 weeks.

White Lotus Acupuncture is not a retail establishment for supplements or herbal products.  We only manage the herbal services of our established patients.
