Chinese Herbal Medicine


Traditional Chinese herbal medicine uses a deep understanding of the elements in nature to treat the human body by harmonising and strengthening weak areas, increasing the body’s own vital energy or Qi and removing toxins or blockages which impair health and can create symptoms. The root cause of disease is sought and addressed.

The pulse and the tongue are important tools in aiding diagnosis. Chinese herbal remedies are excellent tonics in weak, depleted states such as in convalescence from a serious illness, after childbirth, during the menopausal phase or in chronic stress and overwork. They also work well in emotional states such as anxiety, depression and insomnia. Herbal remedies are versatile and can be used in many forms: herb teas or decoctions, pills, concentrated powders, tinctures or creams.
