Chinese herbal medicine is a very sophisticated and complex system.   Herbs are combined to devise synergistic formulas, containing as many as 15 or 20 herbs,which are aimed at relieving a whole pattern of symptom manifestation rather than a single complaint.

Individual herbs used in formulas are classified according to the qualities of taste, temperature, parts of the body they affect, and traditional function. Some herbs build up depleted energy, blood, and fluids, and are known as tonics. Others have properties such as clearing heat and inflammation, warming cold areas, eliminating phlegm, moistening dryness, and relieving muscle tension and spasms. By skillfully combining these herbs and formulas, a practitioner can treat an enormous variety of issues.
