Background & History

Chinese herbal medicine is part of an integrated system of primary health care, known as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has an uninterrupted history of development dating back thousands years in China and other parts of East Asia.


Yet throughout its history it has continually developed in response to changing clinical conditions, and has been sustained by research into every aspect of its use. This process continues today with the development of modern medical diagnostic techniques and knowledge.


Traditional health care & a modern profession


The origins of Chinese herbal medicine in China can be traced back at least 5000 years, making it one of the oldest and most long-standing health care systems in the world.


In the intervening millennium, the practice of Chinese herbal medicine and TCM has developed and matured to become what it is today - a natural and holistic system of primary health care that is being used by people and animals from a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds to effectively treat a wide range of chronic and acute health problems.

Is herbal therapy for your animal?

Herbal therapy and TCVM in general can benefit all life stages (juvenile, adult, and senior) and a vast variety of conditions. Determining and resolving the underlying reasons for illnesses is one of the aspects of TCVM’s approach that can reduce the cumulative effect of chronic ailments.


Since most pets’ health problems are diagnosed once illness has become very advanced, it’s vital to strive to prevent dis- ease from occurring in the first place.


The preventive approach of TCVM takes into account the constitutional type of each patient, allowing the practitioner to treat conditions even before they manifest themselves.
