Local herbal health expert Sherri Taylor launches new Traditional Chinese Medicine practice The Herbal Kind

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Local herbal medicine practitioner Sherri Taylor has opened the doors to her new Traditional Chinese Medicine practice, The Herbal Kind. The practice focuses on creating custom treatment plans using natural remedies to treat conditions related to internal health, pain management, and general well-being. To celebrate the practice’s opening, The Herbal Kind is offering a $100 consultation with acupuncture treatment for new patients.

Sherri Taylor’s advanced herbal health training and her passion to help people heal have established her as an expert in the field of herbal medicine. As an educator within the Arizona community, Taylor has worked to inform people of the natural alternatives to Western medicine and how the two different styles of medicine can work together to treat many conditions. She works with several local health providers to create individualized comprehensive treatment plans for each individual.

Services offered by The Herbal Kind include:

  • Gua Sha, a technique used in traditional East Asian medicine that uses a rounded edge tool to scrape the skin to stimulate the healing process.
  • Cupping, an ancient form of alternative medicine where cups are placed on the skin to create suction to facilitate healing.
  • Moxibustion, a heat therapy where dried plant materials are burned on or near the surface of the skin.
  • Herbal consultation, where pharmaceutical-grade herbs are mixed to create herbal prescriptions.
  • Fertility enhancement to increase the chances of conceiving and support a healthy pregnancy.
  • Acupuncture, where small sterile needles are inserted into specific points on the body to stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

“I want to bring more awareness to the public that they have alternatives when it comes to their health,” Taylor said. “One can take herbal medicine in place of or in addition to other treatments that they may receive for their health care.  For example, I have given patients a formula for cold, allergies, and sinus congestion verses getting over the counter medication or before trying prescribed western medicine. In some instances both medicines are the best answer but we don’t have to be limited in our choices in how we treat our body to heal.”
