Chinese Herbal Medicine
About Chinese herbal medicine
Chinese herbal medicine is one of the greatest herbal systems in the world, with an unbroken tradition dating back to the 3rd century BC.
Herbs are made up of leaves, stems, bark, roots or seeds. They each have a unique action. Cleverly combined, they perform a multitude of tasks and help bring a holistic balance back to the whole body.
The difference between acupuncture and Chinese herbs is that acupuncture helps the body to help itself, but can't give the body what it doesn't have. Chinese herbs however, help the body to help itself, like acupuncture, but also give the body what it doesn't have, so is often stronger and more effective than acupuncture.
In China, people use herbs first and acupuncture second. Most acupuncturists in the west can't prescribe herbs, which in China is considered very unusual.
All Chinese herbs are of the highest quality and are prescribed in a tailor-made formula to meet each patient's individual needs.
