Like all branches of Chinese medicine, women’s health has had a long history. The earliest records on gynaecological medical writings date from around 1000BC.

Bones and tortoise shells have been found with writings dealing with childbirth problems and a textbook called Book of Mountains and Seas (circa 300BC) reviews medicinal plants to address infertility.

Since the early 1950s, Western and Eastern medicine in China have worked together and many innovative treatments have been prescribed.

For example, acupuncture is often used in breech presentations of the foetus and Chinese herbs are used to address myomas.
