Oriental herbal medicine is based on the same theory and philosophy as acupuncture. Herbal medicine has been used in China for centuries and is backed by a long and rich history of development, use and research. When prescribed by a trained herbalist, it can have a profoundly positive effect on one’s health. A combination of acupuncture and Oriental herbal medicine will often generate the most optimal results.
