In recent times, Chinese Herbal Medicine has grown rapidly in the West, whilst still forming a major part of primary care in China. Chinese Herbal Medicine is provided in state hospitals alongside Western Medicine.

Chinese Herbal Medicine, as all other aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is based on the principals of Yin and Yang. When these two opposing forces are in harmony health is maintained, when disharmony predominates ill health may arise.

Diagnosis is made by analysis of signs and symptoms including the taking of the pulse and observation of the tongue. This detailed examination enables the root cause and progress of an illness to be assessed. A specific formula is prescribed to suit individual’s requirements in the forms of raw herbs, pills or powders.
