Chinese pharmacy supermarket. Interior view of a Chinese pharmacy containing herbal medication. Pharmacies in the Far East are often supermarkets such as this. The shelves of the supermarket are stored with 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.
