Chinese herbal medicine is the use of plants or plant extracts to treat diseases and promote good health. When approaching the self, it looks at your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. It also aims to restore your body’s natural ability to protect and restore.

Chinese herbal medicine is based around the Yin and Yang concept (the aim of restoring the body’s natural balance). The tradition places emphasis on preventing disease or illness through living a healthy lifestyle.

The natural balance of the body is regarded as your qi . Many practitioners believe that this is the body’s energy flow and is essential for maintaining good health. When your qi is unable to flow freely around the body, your energy meridians can become obstructed. This is often a result of stress, overwork, poor nutrition, environmental conditions or injury.
