"My experience with Amy at Herb + Ōhm has been beyond my expectation."

"I sought out acupuncture/Chinese medicine for symptoms of urinary incontinence along with longstanding back/leg pain and nerve symptoms- tingling, weakness. After six months, my urinary symptoms are 90-95% improved, which is amazing to me. I was starting to think it would never change, but with Amy's help, it has. I would recommend Amy without hesitation to anyone who is looking for a holistic alternative to healing."
— A.J., Chicago

"I haven't had a single migraine since I started seeing Amy!"

“I've been seeing Amy for three months now, and I haven't had a single migraine since I started which is amazing! She has also helped with other issues like stress and anxiety. I can honestly say that without her help over the past three months, I would be a complete wreck.”
— Mrs. E, Chicago

The Benefits + History of Herbal Medicine


Historically, Chinese herbs were only available in dried form and had to be boiled for long periods of time to release their active ingredients. However, modern advances have led to natural methods of extracting the active ingredients so that herbs can be dispensed in more contemporary forms such as pills, tinctures, granules and powders that you can easily take on the go! Herb + Ōhm's herbs are prepared according to strict Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and subject to the highest levels of quality control.

The reason Chinese Herbal Medicine has survived for so long and adapted to different cultures is that it offers a powerful range of healing benefits that are so widely needed in our modern world. You may have noticed that acupuncture has enjoyed an enormous surge in interest lately, as the media is really catching onto the widespread benefit that this treatment offers so many people.

What are some of these benefits?  

Well, the list could expand over many pages, but here is a condensed version of what our patients are experiencing and what clinical evidence is suggesting:
