Chinese Herbal Therapy

Chinese Herbals are an integral part of TCM. They are specially formulated in China and include flowers, leaf stalks, seeds and roots. Each herb has healing properties which are used for specific purposes and perform particular functions.

The doctors prescribe a combination of herbs (carefully selecting up to 15 from a total of 300) specifically suited to treat you and your condition. Each prescription is therefore tailor-made. The herbs are cooked and drunk as a decoction (Tea) or taken in tablet form to get to the root of the problem.

You start by taking the medicine every day. As treatment continues your progress is closely monitored through regular consultations. Our doctors will alter the prescriptions and reduce the dosages accordingly. Since all patients and conditions are different, length of treatment can vary from a few weeks to several months. After a period of treatment you are able to stop taking the medicine.
