What is Chinese herbal medicine?
A qualified practitioner is able to prescribe a Chinese herbal medicine formula that specifically matches and treats individual health problem based on practitioner’s diagnosis, taking into account the state of the patient’s Yin and Yang. As the patient’s condition changes and improves with treatment, the Chinese herbal medicine treatment is also adjusted and modified until the desired health outcome is achieved. Chinese herbal medicines are prescribed either singly or made into formulae which take into account the individual therapeutic action of each herb and as well as the effects when combined together.

Different herbs have different properties and benefits for particular parts of the body. A well-constructed formula maximises the effectiveness for treating a particular condition, while counteracting and minimising the unwanted effects of an individual herb.
