Chinese Herbal Medicines are a key component
of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Herbal combinations have long been used to help restore body balance by stimulating specific physiological actions such as peristalsis and blood flow for example. Herbs also act as tonics by nourishing and rebuilding blood, fluids and energy reserves.Whatever your ailment, we can design a natural, and safe remedy with Chinese herbs.
Through traditional herbal medicines, we can encourage healing for persistent or chronic conditions in conjunction with other forms of treatment. Chinese herbs and tonics are highly effective and are known to address stress in the body and help it recover energy. Remedies are also used to activate weakened functions or calm hyperactive functions to better balance the body.
