Although it was Acupuncture that first gained widespread recognition in the West, Chinese Herbal Medicine has always been an important aspect of Oriental Medicine.
Chinese Herbal Medicine can greatly enhance the effects of Acupuncture, especially in the treatment of chronic disease where daily therapy is crucial to achieving significant and lasting relief.
