Many 'Curanderos' use powerful herbal medicines to induce a self-trance state for themselves to reach that level and discover appropriate treatments.

Herbal medicine has many variations depending upon geo-physical locale; we try to use local fresh herbs whenever possible and supplement these with Chinese herbal formulas, creating INDIVIDUAL recipes, usually in the form of TINCTURES, though, in some cases herbal teas are prferable.

What are the Understanding and Methods of TCM -
(Traditional Chinese Medicine)?

requiring a healthcare system that is dynamically
responsive. Traditionally the
Chinese physicians used five methods in concert to treat
illness and maintain

yoga and Chinese internal
martial arts such as taijiquan, bagua and xing yi.
