Spring Wind Dispensary is a full service Chinese herb pharmacy, filling custom raw herb and granulated extract formulas by prescription for licensed healthcare professionals, their patients, and qualified acupuncture students.

The shop is located in a store front at the corner of Sutter and Lyon, San Francisco in a pleasant traditional pharmacy setting.

Spring Wind Dispensary’s small dedicated core staff has over 75 years of combined Chinese herbal expertise. As practitioners ourselves, we understand your needs and are available to consult with you about your formulas. Unlike the pharmacies of large distributors or manufacturers, who interface with customers remotely through the internet or through customer service representatives, our sole purpose is to be here for you and your patients with personal, customized service and the quality, tested herbs we use in our own clinics.

Private practitioner accounts are maintained with a complete history of all formulas for easy reference and refills.
