Chinese Herbal Medicine Hong Kong
Chinese herbal medicine is a popular method of treatment in Hong Kong. In the local culture, Chinese herbs are used not only for the boiling of traditional medicines, but mild Chinese herbs are also incorporated into chilled convenience store drinks, herbal lotions and shampoo products.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, practitioners assess the patient’s health problems by checking their pulse and constitution, and ask for their detailed medical history. Afterwards, practitioners write medical herbal prescriptions and dispense herbs for the patients.

Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapy, which consists of burning mugwort leaves (Traditional Chinese herb) on particular acupressure points on the body. This therapy has been used in China, Tibet, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and Mongolia since several thousand years ago. It is often used in combination with acupuncture, or it can also be used just on its own.
The effect of moxibustion is to warm specific body regions, and acupressure meridians, to stimulate circulation for a smoother flow of blood and Qi. Moxibustion removes coldness and dampness from the body, and uplift drooping body areas by giving it a strong boost.
