What is Herbal Medicine?

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses a holistic approach in understanding the body ​as whole and finding the root cause of disease occurrences. Prevention against disease is possible only when the balance inside the body is understood, restored and maintained. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture combined can help to support acute and chronic ailments, maintain wellbeing, rejuvenation and detoxification.
