1. About

In the UK Chinese medicine refers to Chinese herbal medicine. In Asia, chinese medicine refers to all forms of therapy; acupuncture, herbs, massage (tuina), dietary and lifestyle.

Chinese herbs are made up of leaves, flowers, bark, roots or seeds. They each have a unique action. Cleverly combined together they perform a multitude of tasks and help bring a holistic balance back to the whole body.

2. Are Chinese herbs safe?

All herbs are of the highest quality and are prescribed individually to meet each patient’s needs. Chinese herbs are prescribed in powder form. Hot water is added to them then drank. Alternatively you can have them put into tablets or capsules, which has less of a taste.

3. Why use Chinese herbs instead of acupuncture?

Chinese herbs are better able to treat chronic health problems than acupuncture. They get to the root of the problem, internally and give you what you are lacking, whereas acupuncture regulates bodily functions, helping it to help itself. In China, people go for herbs first before trying acupuncture.
