Chinese Herbal Medicine works hand in hand with Acupuncture as a way to heal the body from the inside out. Diagnosis considers the nature of disease according to how it affects the individual, and herbs are selected not only according to their pharmacological benefits but also how the body is likely to respond to them.
Chinese Herbal Medicine uses plant parts such as flowers, leaves, roots, twigs, peel, bark, fungi, and fruit. Some animal and mineral substances are also utilised although substances derived from endangered species are substituted in traditional formulas with substances that have similar profiles.
Herbal Formulas are created specifically in response to the client response and whether the condition improves or changes in nature. Chinese Herbal Medicine is often prescribed as an aspect of a wider treatment plan that includes other elements of TCM.
