Chinese Herbal Medicine in West Hampstead
Traditionally, traditional Chinese medicine includes the use of herbs, minerals and animal products to help treat individual health problems. Each helps to rebalance yin and yang and help the body return to full health.
When used alongside acupuncture and massage, it can support your overall treatment and help your body heal faster. This is especially the case when treating digestive issues, fertility problems and skin conditions. Chinese herbal medicine should only be taken when prescribed by a qualified Chinese herbal medicine practitioner.
Benefits of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of health problems.
In the West, the therapy is most commonly used to treat chronic tension headaches and migraines, ease neck and joint pain and help with fertility. However, it can also be used to help quit smoking, ease allergies, boost the immune system, provide mental clarity and improve energy.
By inserting very fine needles into acupuncture points located across your body, your practitioner will help unblock your body’s natural flow of Qi (energy), triggering your body’s natural healing response and restoring physical, emotional and mental equilibrium.

The name ‘Neijing’ comes from the ancient Chinese manuscript that explains how to prevent illness by using acupuncture, diet, Tuina (massage therapy) and herbal medicine. It also explains the importance of living in harmony with nature, the season and the elements, which underpins the Stems and Branches approach.
