How Chinese Herbal Medicine Works

Chinese Herbal Medicine is an age old practice derived from the study of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This treatment is the formulation of Chinese herbs used to aid varying health concerns.
The unique formulation of herbs will be prescribed by a qualified Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner. The blend of herbs is personalised to each individual’s complaint and may change as the situation improves.

When it comes to how to take Chinese Herbal Medicine there are two main forms of herbs we offer to our patients.

Granule Formula – Very much similar to a powder. To be mixed in with water and taken at specified times.

Capsule Formula – This is the exact same granule formula however pressed into capsules in the event this is preferred by the patient. Also, to be taken with water at specified times.

Chinese Herbal medicine can be prescribed as a treatment on its own, however, it is more so used in combination with other treatments such as Acupuncture, Remedial Massage or Cupping Therapy depending on the concern, to get the patient the best possible result.

How We Get You The Best Results

Most often, patients seek treatment when there is a significant problem. Like with most things, it is always wise to attend to issues before they become bigger problems.

A benefit of seeing a practitioner is getting your health concern assessed and diagnosed. Our team views health as a state of balance as opposed to having a problem or not. This approach allows for both innovative treatment and prevention of health problems.

The process is simple, the first step is to come into our clinic for an Initial Appointment. This is where your practitioner will identify the area of concern and understand what symptoms you are experiencing. We will address these symptoms to help you get relief fast, as well as look at the causative factors to eliminate this from occurring again. Follow-up treatments will be used to accelerate your healing and work on maintenance treatment to help prevent relapse. Your practitioner will provide you with lifestyle advice and coping mechanisms to assist you on your health care journey.

How Can We Help?

We work with individuals who suffer from many different health concerns. Chinese Herbal Medicine is just one option of treatment that we use to help people achieve their best health outcomes. If you would like to know more about how we can help you, please call our team on (02) 4709 6727.

We look forward to helping you with your health!

Evolution Medical Care is second to none. As soon as I walk in the door I feel an inner peace. You are then met by the loveliest reception ladies. It's so nice to find people who know the art of customer service. The girls/ladies are always happy and smiling a true reflection of being happy at their workplace. I have chronic bursitis which impacts my range on movement, after my visit with Andrew my pain is always reduced or disappears and I can move my arm again. The team at Evolution Medical Care are very knowledgeable and professional. Congratulations to the team you have found not only a client but a fan!!!!!

I will start this review by saying I judge my healthcare practitioners HARSH. I have been stung many times by gaslighting, ignorance, and sometimes plain creepiness, so I am super picky about the medical providers I use and very honest. I have a pretty complicated case with my back trauma, auto-immune diseases, and genetic disposition. Adding pregnancy to the mix means I am in desperate need of relief with my chronic pain and not many avenues I can take. I have been to Dr Andrew's team twice now, and have adored my experiences there. My first appointment was for acupuncture and cupping with Dr Adam, and my second was a remedial massage and acupuncture with Dr Andrew. Both visits were respectful, calming, and went at a great pace. Andrew's massage appointment had me walking out of the centre with a completely different gait. The environment of the practice is also very peaceful and modern. I met Dr David too as he was playing receptionist for my first appointment and he was lovely. My next appointment will be with Dr Kent and I have no doubt it will also be a great experience. Worth every penny, and they deserve their great reputation with their Google reviews! Looking forward to seeing some results now as I do more acupuncture sessions.

Let me start by firstly saying, “Thank you” to Dr. David VO for his service. I came in with severe back ache. I did unaided squats at the gym and caused a back injury. I got severe inflammation of back muscles and other disc related pain. I could not even sleep in peace. I work in film industry for a living and could not continue work. Holding an 8kilo camera was impossible due to pain. I was looking for help to fix my pain and strengthen my back. After meeting Dr. David VO, I was convinced that my back needed acupuncture and some simple everyday exercises which will strengthen it and also stop further re occurrences. I stuck to the routine of getting acupuncture twice a week and simple morning exercises that were prescribed by the professional. In two weeks I saw amazing results. In four weeks, I was filming without pain and in eight weeks, I am back in the gym. Once again, thank you for your accurate prognosis, treatment and exercise advice.

I'd thoroughly recommend it. I'm scared of needles but honestly, the acupuncture is fine. In fact, it's actually a very relaxing experience and I've had beneficial results. It's treated the severe tension in my back and hips which I've had for a long time. I've never tried acupuncture before and thought I'd give it a go. So glad I did. Thank you!

Truly enjoy my 5 star experience at Evolution Medical Care. From the lovely ladies at reception ready to assist and answer all my questions, to the team of Dr Andrew and Dr Adam's acupuncture treatment. For the first time in a number of years, my concerns re: my back injury and joint pain has been alleviated by expert treatment plan and care when administered. Andrew is knowledgeable and the care he takes to listen and treat accordingly is truly a gift. I am operating mostly pain free since joining and it's the highlight of my week!

I can honestly say my pain my mobility has extremely approved. Not only that my well being and over all health. If your looking for regular treatment or may just need some help to get moving again look no further then Evolution Medical Care. I only wish I found these guys earlier.

I honestly cannot recommend Dr Andrew enough! It’s a strange feeling to have had constant tension and pain that has become just a normal part of life, to being gone and having what is true normality back. Being 10 months postpartum from a c-section, my back has been under stress since being pregnant my almost 5kg boy - but I can finally hold and rock him without having the pains. I’m so thankful my husband referred me, we’ve been a much happier household - you don’t realise what living with aches is like until you don’t anymore! Ally
