Herbs have a longer history of use than many other forms of medicine. Herbal medicine is used according to ancient principles following a complete system that is based on an understanding of a person as a multi-faceted being. It is used in conjunction with acupuncture and other traditional techniques.
Oriental herbal medicine brings targeted healing on a deep level. It is a potent form of medicine and should be used with practitioner guidance to ensure both safety and maximum therapeutic benefit.
Traditional medicine assesses each person individually. The choice of herbal remedy is made by clinical history, physical examination and the traditional methods of tongue and pulse diagnosis. These enable the practitioner to choose the most effective prescription for the person, rather than prescribing for the condition.
