Traditional Chinese Medicine has been around for thousands of years. Although the first recorded history of TCM dates back over 2000 years. Many medicine brands has developed and survived for hundred years.

In remote antiquity, our ancestors created primitive medicine during their struggles against nature. While searching for food they found that some foods had the specific characteristics of relieving or eliminating certain diseases. That was the beginning of finding and using herbal medicines. While warming themselves around a fire they discovered that the way of local warming with hot stone or earth wrapped in bark or animal skin would relieve or eliminate certain symptoms of diseases. They practiced and improved this method repeatedly and then gradually brought into being the therapies of hot medicated compress and irritation therapy.
