Chinese herbal medicine

Chinese herbal medicine is part of a larger healing system called Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM).

For thousands of years, traditional Chinese medicine has helped people improve their health, boost their immune systems, and ease short-term and chronic illnesses. This Eastern philosophy centre on promoting harmony in the body using acupuncture, tai chi, and Chinese herbs.

Herbs are prescribed to restore energy balance to the opposing forces of energy - Yin and Yang - that run through invisible channels in the body.

Herbs can act on the body as powerfully as pharmaceutical Meds and should be treated with the same caution and respect.
