Hen Sen Herbs was originally founded in 1951 by Juliana's father Hen Sen Chin in International District (Chinatown) Seattle. When his small herbal shop became too small to handle increasing numbers of patients, he moved to bigger space in Beacon Hill in 1980's. At the age of 12, Juliana started apprenticeship under her father at this location, and continued to see patients side by side with her father until his passing in 2006.
Many articles were written up about him and Hen Sen Herbs in "Seattle Times", "Seattle P-I" and others.
In 2010, Juliana moved her practice out of Seattle to
the current location in Bellevue.
Hen Sen Herbs is now located at 13256 NE 20th St. Bellevue, WA 98005.

Hi my name is Susan....and I found Juli and Hen Sen Herbs by word of mouth from my friend Yasuko. And I am so grateful because I was having so much trouble with my body...and especially the digestion. I was to a point where it hurt to eat. And nothing was going right....and within 12 hours of my first treatment and my first batch of tea, I went form feeling very very stressed and ver very painful..and when I woke up the next morning, I was calm and I was balanced. I felt so good..
I'm a resident of the East Coast - USA (Philadelphia, PA) and I have had a twenty year battle with endometriosis & multiple cysts. I've had laparoscopic surgery and medication (birth control pills) but I've only experienced limited and temporary relief.
My symptoms mushroomed from sporadic menses with some cramping to horrific menses with vomiting, loose stool, EXTREME pain - pain so severe that I could not stand upright or walk or urinate without grinding my teeth and counting the seconds until the pain eased. I've missed days from work and my quality of life deteriorated as my life revolved around a two week saga (one week of pain, fatigue, food cravings, extreme irritability and then, during the week of menses, EXTREME pain, vomiting, loose stool and painful elimination.)I've suffered having two weeks off and two weeks of horror during my cycle for decades with very little assistance, as traditional medicine seemed resigned to there being little, if any, viable treatment.
Recently, I was a vendor a local open-market and a fellow vendor mentioned her Mother's problems with multiple cysts had been resolved when she contacted Hen Sen Herbs. I had been advised by other homeopathic physicians and herbalists to avoid dairy, meat, sugar, etc. and this resulted in some reduction in symptoms, but I still had pain and discomfort a week before most of my menses.
When I contacted Hen Sen Herbs, I was hoping for the best because I was very weary and I simply wanted to get on with my life. I really wanted to find someone to, finally, help me solve the problem. I spoke to Juli Isogai and she was so confident in the body's ability to heal and she was so empathetic. This was already a treat for me because confidence and empathy was something I had suffered without during my long stint with traditional physicians.
Juli asked questions and had me send photos of my tongue, my protruding stomach, etc. After additional assessment by phone and email, she suggested specific herbs for my ailments. The most unexpected thing is that I experienced an IMMEDIATE result when taking the herbs! As advised by Juli, I refrained from eating certain supplements and certain acidic and hard-to-digest foods and I took the herbs, as suggested. Amazingly, I had NO symptoms the week before my menses. In fact, I was so accustomed to having symptoms that I thought I had miscalculated the due date. I thought I was a week off because I assumed that since I wasn’t sick, I wasn’t going to menstruate.
I really don’t remember the last time that I began menstruating without some tell-tale, painful symptom. When I began menses with ease and NO PAIN, I was amazed. I forgot that so many women in the world menstrate without cramps, bloating, pain or vomiting. I also realized that I would have to be mindful of my dates of menstruation now, because the pain and bloating were my pre-menstrual warnings. I'm excited to have some semblance of normalcy so soon in my treatment.
Thanks Juli (Hen Sen Herbs) for being so caring, so approachable, so affordable and, most of all, so competent! I will never under-estimate your herbs (LOL)!

Hi, I found Hen Sen Herbs...because when I was little girl, I saw Juli's dad Hen Sen Chin....I had been very sick for a long time. My parents tried everything and they on their last ditch effort, came to Hen Sen Chin. And I was better in a week and I was totally fine in 2 weeks. It was really amazing. And I hadn't really thought about it in my adulthood until my daughter had been having some chronic lung issues......
I was fortunate to have had Hen Sen as my doctor. 1981-1991 I would spend 3 to 4 days a week in his herbal shop. What a wonderful adventure into Chinese medicine. I saw, heard, and experienced healings. From the mouths of patients fascinating healings by Hen Sen would spill forth.
Hen Sen would study cases of patients far into the night, where he could concentrate alone. I’ve never been so impressed. He loved his work, lived his work, and shared his work. He was a great humanitarian and healer.
Being around, Hen Sen had me council patients of what to eat, and how to cook herbs. I had many questions asked me which I would then ask Hen Sen. I was so blessed…Hen Sen would always explain in an allegory, so I could understand.
Chinese medicine is like no other! It has been proven for over centuries. It is the ‘ultimate’ in healing ability today. American medicine is founded on proven untruths. Like the germ theory for one. Everything about Chinese medicine makes clear good sense to everyone. That’s how you know you’re doing right by yourself. It is that simple.
He has left his daughter Julie a legacy of information on healings; that are from his experiences as one of thee BEST herbal healers around. We have been lucky to have known him and treated by him.
His daughter, I believe, has his gift.

Taifu has kept me alive for 17 years. It is a God send. Thank you for everything, Hen Sen Herbs.
Thank you so much for the testimonial. You have not only been a inspiration but a great part of Hen Sen Herbs. My father has taught me to see our patients as friends and as a family. Ones that we must educate and heal within with traditional herbs that has helped for centuries. My mission is to continue to educate and give others hope and healthy life. I wish to have your permission to put this testimonial on our website or other applications to help others know my father and how he has helped you. My father is watching and caring for us. His memories will stay with us forever and his effort to heal will not be lost. Thank you, Dellena!!

I had period from Sep. 5 (cycle was 33days). It was the BEST period I ever had in my life!
Usually on the first day, I have some brown spot for a while, and after that I have flow. But this time, I had nice smooth flow from the beginning, completely no pain. I almost forgot about my period.
I had nice flow for 3 days, and 2 days are spot. And today (5th day) almost gone. This is the healthy period, isn't it? What was my life like before?...always had painful period...
Thank you so much for your advice and herbs! And I think my tongue coating is also getting better.

Dear Kaz & Juliana,
I hope your are taking some time out to enjoy the beautiful weather we are having, and that everyone in the family is happy and healthy. Please thank Juliana for the exercises and the very thoughtful note, which I have been meaning to reply to.
I have given out a lot of the taifu pills at work and socially. Unfortunately, most people have a short attention span and once the discomfort is gone they simply forget or grab an over the counter medication of some type the next time. They do not seem to realize that after a certain age health takes a little work. I have made many referrals to you but to avoid wasting your time I always warn them that the diet must be a part of taking the herbs. Most of the people I know are interested in "quick fixes" rather than getting to the "root of the problem" as Dr. would say.
While I was seeing May a couple of years ago I asked her for a referral to an acupuncturist for a friend at work with a back injury, and she gave me Amy Chen's name and address. Most people are willing to take the acupuncture and a combination of patent herbal medications, but simply resist having to put forth more effort. This makes me wonder whether Juliana could use the acupressure techniques that were so helpful to my mother and myself many years ago. I have recounted my experience to many people because I have never felt anything like it, nor have I ever been bothered with the tension and blocked energy in my upper back and shoulders since. I know that it was a combination of the herbs and the acupressure not just one or the other.
I have been to the herb shop in the Great Wall Mall to get some Gum-Wall tea while May was in China and noticed a lot of people getting prescriptions for various aliments, but the packages were nothing like the herbs at Hen Sen's. They seem to be for specific aliments only and not the quality and intense cleansing that really gets rid of the problem once and for all. I am truly puzzled why people do not want to seem to put forth the effort, I know that cost is part of it, but what price can you put on your family's health? These are only my observations about the people I know and what I have seen. I will continue to make referrals and hope that what I have seen is helpful. I truly don't know how to get people to realize the value of the herbs and the skill of Juliana and May. So much needless suffering, it truly makes me sad sometimes.
I would welcome the chance to help you in any way that you can think of, just let me know what I can do!

I was diagnosed (from ultra sound) as having a cyst in my ovary the size of a big orange in 1996. My OB recommended to remove it and have a hysterectomy to prevent getting cancer. One week prior to the surgery, I read a pamphlet that I will need to take estrogen for the rest of my life when I have my ovary removed. I may have a good chance of getting cancer if I take estrogen for a long time. I decided against having hysterectomy and get a treatment from Hen Sen instead (recommendation from a friend). After taking herb for 2 months, I went back to my OB and took another ultra sound. At that time, my cyst was all disappeared. I have had a check up regularly and there is no recurrence.

I already got my order today, I couldn't believe it-!! Wow, you guys are fast, thank you so much for getting that out so quickly. I'm so glad you guys are keeping the business going for Hen Sen. I was so sorry to hear of his passing and I was afraid the business would close. You guys are doing a great job of revamping things. I have not found anything that works for me as well as the Hen Sen herbal products. They are superb. I'm so happy I'll still be able to get them, for a long time, I hope. Thank you, also, for the brochures. I will take a look at everything and let you know if I have any questions.
Much appreciated, Pam
