Apricot Forest is one of the most advanced Chinese herbal medicine clinics in the UK & one of the largest Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) pharmacies in Europe. Our staff and practitioners at Apricot Forest are dedicated to the practice of true Chinese medicine and the pursuit of clinical excellence. We see patients daily in our clinics in the UK and throughout Europe by videoconferencing or in person whenever we can.
Chinese medicine specialises in the treatment of one’s life and time versus the body. Apricot Forest supports people to reach their full potential, removing obstacles, limitation and disease, preserving & prolonging good health, increasing it wherever possible.
We offer fertility treatment, as well as the expert treatment of most acute and chronic disorders, from speedy treatment of the common cold to life threatening illnesses. We are always happy to discuss treatment plans with you & your family or your doctor or consultant.
Apricot Forest is one of the most advanced traditional Chinese herbal pharmacies in the UK and Europe, stocking only high-grade medicinal herbs that are organic & certified free of contamination from sulfur, pesticides and heavy metals whenever possible. We are also fortunate to be able to stock ‘di dao’ herbs from the Fire Spirit school pharmacy in Chengdu, China.
We are one of the only clinics in Europe that is furnished with advanced decocting and packaging machinery as used in Chinese hospitals, enabling us to prepare your herbal medicine sealed in sterile sachets for ease of use, high patient compliance and standardisation of dosage. Research shows up to a 30-40% increase in extraction rate of active ingredients, increasing treatment efficacy and reducing waste of valuable resources. We also produce hand made pills, prescribed by your practitioner made only from pure herbs without artificial binders, fillers or sweetners.
We prepare your liquid decoctions and have them collected or couriered out the same day for prescriptions emailed in by midday. The sachets are approximately 150ml in size, but can be made smaller for babies and children, and larger for external washes. Qualified and registered practitioners who wish to register to use the service can send us their details through the contact page.
For international postage costs please email, we currently supply practitioners and patients in UK, Germany, Sweden, Spain, France, USA and Poland.
Here at Apricot Forest we do not support the sale or use of endangered plant or animal species. The use of such medicinals is strictly regulated today and is absolutely not part of professional TCM in the UK.
