0608HH Healing Herb Garden

Thursday, June 8

6:30-8 pm

There are over 4000 Chinese medicinal plant substances that are known to have clinical effectiveness; join Pittsford’s only board certified Chinese medical practitioner, Tennille Richards (M.S. and Licensed Acupuncturist) of LIV Acupuncture (and the folks at Gallea’s), as she explains and explores common botanical western ‘cousins’  to well-known Chinese herbs and their very specific medical uses. We will learn all about the optimal care and growing conditions of these herbs and plants themselves plus their usefulness according to Chinese medicine and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatment principles. We will cover topics such as the immune system, circulation, digestion and inflammation in a very practical way. Also, you will take your understanding of ‘teas’ to a new level while learning about medical decoctions. Class takes place at Gallea’s, 2832 Clover Street, Pittsford NY 14534 (corner of Clover and Jefferson Rd).
