What is it?
Used independently or in conjunction with Acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine consists of many of the same plants that are also used to produce Western pharmaceuticals.
The thing that makes Chinese herbal medicine so powerful is the philosophy behind the diagnosing and prescribing process, and the action of each individual herb. The practice assists to approach your health and disease from an entirely different perspective. It is a cohesive, intricate and internally consistent system of healthcare developed over a period of 4,000 years from practical experience, testing and close observation.
Chinese medicine philosophy takes a holistic approach when observing and diagnosing a patient to understand the disease, its progression and root cause. We recognise that all individuals manifest with their own unique signs and symptoms of disease, and depending on the presentation of the patient, we modify traditional formulas by adding or taking away particular herbal substances to match the individual and their condition. This process continues throughout the treatment over as much time as the individual needs, until the desired health outcome is achieved. There are over 450 individual herbal substances commonly used in Chinese herbal medicine today.
