Herbal Trichology is a therapeutic supplemental service to dermatology, similarly as Physical Therapy service to Orthopedic. Herbal Trichology identify itself as a part of cosmetology culture rather than medical services. It focuses on root causes of hair loss rather than treating hair loss symptoms. In help with modern technology, the holistic remedies that has been used thousands of years and acupressure, results are clear and consumers worldwide falling in love with the Herbal Trichology. 

More than 100 years ago, a few medical professionals had tried to include Trichology as a part of medical specialty, but it was rejected since it cross over with the dermatology. Even after the rejection, some continue the course and provides services. With lengthy, 4-year full-time course, the trichologists offer excellent therapeutic services to clients. 

But in truth, there are only a handful (less than 10 trichologists in U.S. to be more specific) who completed 4-years or more of training. Most others took a few days of training from them or some hasn’t even step in a classroom and claims him/herself to be a trichologists. With lack of clients satisfaction, conventional trichology failed to capture the hearts of the public. 

About 10 years ago; trichology was introduced in Asia, specifically Korea and Japan, countries well known for their herbal medicines and treatments. Their traditional medicine, which combines herbal extracts, acupuncture and therapeutic massages (Jihop), has been proven over several thousand years of practice. In fact, large numbers of modern drugs have been developed based on their traditional medicine.

Asian scholars and cosmetologists saw the potential of trichology and began incorporating the conventionally developed trichology of the UK with Asian traditional therapy. The result was explosive. Within the first 3 years more than 25,000 trichology centers opened in Korea alone, and the numbers are still growing rapidly. The service fees range from $50 to about $150 for a 1-hour session, and millions of consumers visit these trichology centers regularly.
