Chinese Herbal Medicine

Herbal Medicine has always been considered pre-eminent amongst the various methods of healing within traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is practised extensively throughout clinics and hospitals in China alongside Western medicine. Its systematic approach and clinical effectiveness has had the most profound influence on the practice of medicine all over the Far East. Countless generations of doctors over thousands of years have carefully observed patterns of illness and have used powerful natural remedies to alleviate these conditions and restore good health.

TCM combines a detailed analysis of signs and symptoms with a unique system of pulse and tongue diagnosis to develop a detailed picture of the course and process of disease. After diagnosis each person will be prescribed an individual formula, tailor made to their specific requirements.

This allows for a subtle but powerfully effective form of treatment with minimal side-effects. Considerable research into many aspects of TCM has been conducted in China and the West, proving beyond doubt its efficacy and merit. People of any age and constitution can benefit from Chinese medicine.
