Traditional Chinese Medicine has a rich history of using herbs to support treatment. Herb plants produce and contain a variety of chemical substances that act upon the body to treat numerous illnesses and to assist bodily functions.
Herbal medicine is the substantial counterpart to the energetic medicine of acupuncture. Many conditions can greatly benefit from the use of Chinese herbal therapies alone, or with acupuncture. A well- defined herbal pharmacopoeia has been developed and refined since ancient times. Modern research has proven that herbs are powerful medicine and can have safe, healing effects when properly applied by a licensed herbalist.
