Chinese Herbal Medicine

There are over 400 Chinese herbs suitable for use in the United Kingdom as they have well-documented and understood functions. Chinese herbs are said to balance the Yin-Yang (life forces) to regulate internal organs and to enhance the immune system.

Much research, however, has shown that function groups of some herbal combinations have the same effects as chemical synthetic drugs, such as killing bacteria, restraining viruses, relieving fever, stopping pain, balancing the hormones, reducing glucose level in blood, etc.

Herbal treatment includes: dry herbs to be taken as tea, in tablet and capsule format as well as powders, creams and lotions for external use. With or without acupuncture, Chinese herbs can be powerful therapy.

The effectiveness of using Chinese medicine, however, depends heavily on the experience and qualifications of the practitioner and on his/her understanding of patient’s health conditions.

What Our Patients Say

  • ~ Wow what a difference it has made – Ron, Shrewsbury

    "Published in 'AS News - Spring 2016'.  After much thought and a little research, I decided to give acupuncture a chance. Wow what a difference it has made. I'm unsure of the total effect on pain relief but it has had an immense impact on my overall sense of body relaxation and physical and mental well being. In Autumn 2015 after a little additional neck pain, my acupuncturist massaged my neck following my acupuncture session. She then explained she did also offer acupressure massage. After just three sessions I am wholly committed to this. The effect on my neck and shoulders has been amazing plus the overall whole body experience is really profound. A hour of acupressure massage, possibly alongside acupuncture, could be considered a useful contribution to AS therapeutic treatment"
