In Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), medicinal herbs have their own plant intelligence to communicate with the nature and human body to heal diseases and support radiant health & longevity.
Traditional Korean Medicine is a branch of TCM and shares the same root of philosophy and has developed further with constitutional medicine practice.
Traditional Korean medicine has unique characteristics focusing on a holistic approach to disease. Patients diagnosis is based on individual constitutions and treatments aim to improve the general health as well as targeting specific symptoms.
