What is Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Health is more than just the absence of disease, and Chinese Medicine
recognises this with its unique capacity to harmonise and enhance our
capacity for enjoyment fulfillment and happiness.

Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) is an ancient system of health care that has
undergone continual development over the centuries as the causes of illness
that afflict mankind have evolved. In its country of origin it is not an
alternative form of therapy, but is used in the state hospitals alongside
modern medicine.

Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that is capable of treating
disease in all its forms. Although your practitioner will treat whatever
complaint you have come for, the traditional view places great importance on
preventing disease before it occurs.

Chinese Medicine consists of:

* herbal therapy
* acupuncture
* dietary therapy
* exercise
* lifestyle management.

Some or several of these may be employed in the course of your treatment.
