I'm a student of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture. I LOVE this place! I can get my herbs for a lot less money than what my school charges. One can get an acupuncture treatment and herbs here too. In buying supplies it does help to have some knowledge going in since a lot of the stuff is in Chinese. But if not, I'm sure they could make recommendations. They have a very nice tea selection. It's really neat to go in and see them putting together raw herb formulas for people.
