What is Chinese Herbology?

Mantra Wellness Centre is dedicated to providing all-natural pain relief and healing by balancing your body’s natural energy. We do this by combining advanced techniques with deep knowledge of ancient practices. One of the services that we offer, Chinese herbology, is a traditional Asian therapy that involves the use of many distinct herbs. This all-natural practice has many therapeutic benefits. Let’s look deeper and find out just what Chinese herbology is.

An ancient practice

This method of natural healing goes all the way back to Ancient China. The earliest manuscripts describing it date back to the second century B.C. The ancient scholars classified over 300 different herbs, animals, grasses, and woods that could help heal certain conditions. As time went by, the practice was refined and more healing substances were classified. The Silk Road, an ancient trade route between east and west, helped to transfer these ideas to the Middle East and on to Europe.

Incredible flexibility

When modern research is combined with ancient knowledge, the result is over 13,000 medicines and over 100,000 recipes, most of which are based on natural plant extracts. This means that a knowledgeable herbalist can create a nearly infinite range of helpful concoctions to help heal you. We will take every aspect of your life and body into consideration when we make a recipe for you.

What are the benefits?

Although this ancient practice is not based on modern medicine, the results that many people have had from it cannot be argued with. Many people have claimed that they have taken the mixtures of herbs and other materials and received benefits to their health that no other medicine could give them. A few of the benefits of Chinese herbology include:

  • Treatment – people have claimed that it has killed bacteria and treated some diseases.
  • Healing – many have reported that it has healed chronic illnesses of their digestive, respiratory, and immune systems.
  • Rejuvenation – the healthy mixtures of herbs and other natural ingredients has helped millions of people live a healthier, more balanced life.
