Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese Herbal medicine forms part of another healing system called Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This includes  acupuncture, massage, dietary advice and exercise. TCM is a popular and proven treatment.

A qualified practitioner is able to prescribe a Chinese Herbal Medicine formula that specifically matches and treats your individual health problem. As your condition changes and improves with treatment, the Chinese Medicine is also adjusted and modified. This treatment is continued until the desired health outcome is achieved.

In addition to providing effective treatment for a wide range of health disorders, Chinese herbal medicine may also be used to assist with general health maintenance and disease prevention. By strengthening and enhancing normal body functions, the immune system is boosted and a general sense of well-being promoted.
