Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) has been used as a form of treatment for a multitude of ailments ranging from acute infections to chronic fatigue. Traditional Chinese herbal medicine consists of some 6,000 substances derived from plant, animal and mineral sources, each with its own unique property and specific effect on the body. Herbs are viewed in terms of their properties (cold, cool, warm, hot, or neutral), flavours (pungent, sweet, sour, bitter, or salty) and the respective organs they affect (eg liver, spleen, and kidney).
Today, practitioners of Chinese medicine continue to prescribe herbal formulas because they are a powerful therapeutic method. The prescribing of Chinese herbal medicine is based upon individual pattern differentiation using “four techniques diagnosis” including pulse and tongue.
In order to create the most effective formula, the herbs are used in different quantities and for different purposes. This allows the herbalist to create a formula aimed at addressing individual needs, offering specific synergistic actions and effects upon body and mind.
In our clinic, the herbal prescription is based upon individual pattern differentiation and specific herbs are chosen to form a complex herbal formula which has been testified to be effective in the long history of TCM practice. The herbal prescription in our clinic are available in the form of: raw herbs, granules extracts, tablets/capsules, tinctures, or lotions/creams.

Reiki practice is unique in that you can receive a Reiki treatment or you can learn self practice. Balance means different things at different times. If you are tired, you’ll feel refreshed. If you are anxious, you’ll feel serene. If you are distressed, you’ll feel comforted. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, you’ll discover a renewed clarity and purpose. And these subjective changes come with physical changes associated with deep relaxation, such as a slower heart rate and easier breathing. The first session usually brings improvement, and the benefits grow with repeated sessions. In emergencies or during intensive care, patients often show benefit within a few minutes.
