Chinese Herbal Medicine is one of the great herbal systems of the world, with a tradition going back thousands of years. Throughout its history it has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions, and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use. This process continues today.
Chinese Herbal Medicine works on the same bases as Acupuncture in that its main aim is to balance the person as a whole and in doing so it treats disease and increases health helping the person to be more resistant to disease. Different herbs have different properties and are combined together in different prescriptions tailored to suit the individual.
