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 can support acupuncture in disease treatment, health upkeep, rejuvenation and detoxification.

Each prescription is individually customised and adjusted as conditions change and improve. It is important that you return for subsequent visits or follow your treatment plan as advised by your practitioner until the desired health outcome is achieved.
