Chinese Herbology is the most widely used herbal system in the world

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive system of health care with a continuous tradition of over 3000 years. In developing an understanding of the prevention and cure of disease, the ancient oriental physicians discovered through rigorous observation, a system of cyclic energy flowing in the body. They were able to access this energy called Qi through places on the surface of the body which we now call acupuncture points. These points are connected together by pathways of energy called meridians or channels. Disease is considered to arise by imbalances in the meridians or the organs to which these meridians are connected. Needling or heating the body at acupuncture points can stimulate the body’s natural healing ability and help bring it back into balance.

Modern science has studied acupuncture and found out that needles can activate areas of the brain, release endorphins and stimulate hormone regulation. Not everything is known but studies are continuing. Be assured this is a time tested and safe technique that has helped literally millions of people.

Chinese herbology is also an ancient and sophisticated system. Herbs are usually prescribed in formulas of a number of herbs matched to the patients disharmony and constitution. Highly effective, this is the most widely used herbal system in the world.
