How Chinese Herbal Medicine Works

Chinese herbal medicine is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which views the body as a complex system of interconnected parts. According to TCM, health is maintained by a balance of yin and yang, two opposing yet complementary forces, and the smooth flow of vital life energy, or Qi, through the body’s meridians.

When this delicate balance is disrupted, or the flow of Qi becomes blocked, it can manifest as physical, emotional, or mental health concerns. Chinese herbal medicine aims to restore balance and promote the smooth flow of Qi by addressing the root causes of these imbalances.

Each Chinese herb has unique properties and functions within the body. When combined in a custom formula, these herbs work synergistically to:

  • Nourish and support the body’s natural healing processes
  • Regulate the balance of yin and yang
  • Promote the smooth flow of Qi through the meridians
  • Address specific symptoms and health concerns

By tailoring each herbal formula to the individual’s unique needs, Chinese herbal medicine offers a targeted, personalized approach to healing that can promote deep, lasting results.
