CHINESE HERBAL REMEDIES
Chinese herbal remedies are an integral part of TCM.
There are over 4000 Chinese herbs including roots, stalks,
leaves, barks, flowers, seeds and minerals. Each herb is used for
specific purposes and perform particular functions. The TCM
practitioners normally prescribe each individual combination of
herbs, choosing up to 15 from a total of 400 to treat especially
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.

very fine needles into the body surface at strategic acupoints to
stimulate vital “energy points”, thus regulating the meridians or
channels of the body. The goal is to promote the circulation of
the blood and to unblock the stagnation of the so-called “Qi
(energy)” – “the vital force of the life” and re-establish this
energy balance. Acupuncture works through stimulating the body’s
healing responses and immune system. When the practitioner
carefully inserts the fine needles you may feel a slight tingling
and numb sensation, but you will feel very relaxed because of the
physiological chemical change. The practitioners will leave the
needles in place for about 20 to 30 minutes. The needles are
sterile and are used once only before safe disposal.
