Lin sister herb Shop was opened with the goal to help those seeking eastern medical practices for alternative healing and prevention. They have a wide selection of patent formulas, as well as the filling of custom herbal prescriptions.

Lin, along with his sisters Susan and Jane, started working in the herbal field in 1983, shortly after immigrating to New York from their native China.

"We had the idea for this business when we came here," says Lin. "If we went to see a doctor, we found that the medicine was not part of our culture, what we believe in."

Today, the Lins operate treatment centers in New York’s China town on Elizabeth Street and the Bowery, where customers walk past a small library featuring books on Chinese diet therapy and massage and a wall of wood drawers, from which staffers dispense their organic remedies. Upstairs, on the white-tiled second floor, a receptionist helps clients schedule appointments with licensed acupuncturists.

The treatment center also offers chinese medical diagnoses, reflexology, moxibustion and meridian work at reasonable prices.

Lin Sister is located at 4 Bowery, New York City, N.Y. 10013
