Chinese medicine has used plants and other natural materials as medicines for thousands of years. Flowers, roots, leaves, and barks of numerous plants have been proven to have many health benefits and can be a safer alternative to prescription drugs or more invasive healthcare options.

Combinations of these plants are commonly known as 'formulas' or 'patent medicines' which is the most common form of Chinese Medicine used today. The medicinal plants are processed (boiled or steeped in water for long periods of time to extract their active chemical components) and then made into powders or pills. 

Flow Acupuncture uses many different forms of Chinese herbal medicine, and patients may be prescribed different formulas based on their health needs.
