CHINESE HERBS
The traditional medicine of China has developed over the last 4000 years and it continues to grow
to meet the new health challenges faced by people in the West today. It has become increasingly
popular over the last few decades as people have realised that it can effectively bring relief from a
wide range of complaints.

It is based on concepts that have proven themselves sound over many centuries of practice, treating
the individual as a whole.
What are Chinese Herbs?

The Chinese Materia Medica used in the UK consists of leaves, barks, roots, fruits, flowers and
grains.
