Chinese pharmacy. Interior view of a Chinese pharmacy containing herbal medication. On the counter are three long jars containing yellow roots of ginseng in solution. Packaged medication is seen (at centre right) and the large glass box (at centre left) contains deer horns. The boxes on the back wall contain other medications such as cut herbs and sliced horns. Herbal medicine uses parts of plants to treat symptoms. Chinese medicine uses herbalism, acupuncture, acupressure and t'ai-chi. These techniques are thought, in Chinese medicine, to restore the balance of universal forces in the body. Photographed in Korea.
