Gui Zhi Tang  

(Cinnamon Twig Decoction) 

Herbal Dispensary 

If you attended PIHMA's Fall Open  House then you had a chance to taste an herbal decoction made of raw herbs straight from our Herbal Dispensary. We chose Ghi Zhi Tang because of its warming characteristics and ability to harmonize the body's qi (internal energy).  This decoction is made of Gui Zhi (cinnamon twig), Bai Shao (peony root), Zhi Gan Cao (prepared licorice root), Sheng Jiang (raw ginger), and Da Zao, bo (jujube fruit, cut open) and is often used at the first signs of the common cold (headache, stiff muscles, nasal congestion, fever and chills).  


To see if Gui Zhi Tang is the right formula for you, call PIHMA's clinic today at (602) 274-1885 for an herbal consultation. Because everyone is different herbal products are sold only after consultation with an herbal intern.

Welcome to the World of Feng Shui


Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of space arrangement that uses universal principles and the laws of nature to determine how to organize your environment in order to be happy, healthy, prosperous and free. This unique mini-seminar, geared toward nurses yet open to everyone, focuses on examining the key elements of Feng Shui and how it works.

Feng Shui & Fashion

Just after PIHMA's mini-seminar, stick around for Feng Shui & Fashion and learn how to describe the five life forming Feng Shui energies and how they apply to your personal mind (intentions),  body (physical) and essence (spirit).  You'll also analyze how the elements of Feng Shui relate to one's physical self and the energy of personal essence and intentions and apply the elements of Feng Shui and clutter clearing to cure your  "cluttered closet".
