This formula is basically Yuan Hu Suo with one added herb, Bai Zhi. The addition gives it a little extra “kick” to move it upwards and and outwards and into the smaller collaterals. For that reason it is often used for headaches and upper spine.
Yan Hu Suo (Corydalis yanhusuo) is an herb that is effective for pain. Apparently scientists at UC Irvine have found that the roots of Yan Hu Suo (which has been used for thousands of years for pain in China) contains a compound called dehydrocorybulbine (DHCB). Who knew!? They call this type of research Neuropharmacology. This research was done on rodents so animals were harmed, so be forewarned.
Bai Zhi (Radix Angelicae Dahuricae)
Although our focus has always been and always will be selling herbs, we thought we would sell some other products.

For several years I have been making CD’s to play in my treatment rooms. I call these CD’s Music for Acupuncture. I’ve made 5 so far and I’ve released 3 of them as CD’s while the others are available only on ITunes and other digital media outlets.
Available now are Music for Acupuncture 4- 5 Phases and Music for Acupuncture 5- Greatest Hits, Remixes and Dance Mixes. They are very relaxing and good for listening to while having or doing massage, acupuncture or just falling asleep.
