Traditional Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbs

Traditional Herbal Medicine or Chinese Medicine is a holistic medical system that has been practiced for over five thousand years. Due to its clinical effectiveness it has for centuries had great influence on the practice of medicine in the East. Traditional Herbal Medicine is still a major part of the healthcare system in China and is provided in hospitals alongside modern medicine today. More recently its popularity has grown in the West

Traditional Herbal Medicine involves the skilled technique of using acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary therapy, moxibustion and cupping to help treat pain and disease and restore health. Chinese medicine treats both the presenting symptoms as well as the underlying cause of the problem. By using Chinese medicine we are directing the body to heal itself naturally. Chemical changes are made within the body itself helping to avoid the adverse effects of some external chemicals and from some medical procedures.
