Xiao Yao San is a classic Chinese Medicine Formula that is many100’s of years old. We use this formula extensively within our practices.

It can be used in times of stress and will assist in rather amazingways to help deal with external pressures, anxiety or depression.

XiaoYao San is a classic liver remedy. Liver is the organ of emotion within Chinese Medicine. And is helps to regulate heat within the body. Thatis – problems with the liver may often result in excess heat within thebody – particularly in the afternoon and evenings.

This formulawill help ‘detoxify the liver’ and therefore reduce anxiety &emotion (anger) as well as reduce heat (flushes) over time. I regularlyprescribe this formula for patients who are going through periods ofstress or have increased levels of anxiety for situations that arebeyond their control.

Cathay Herbal Xiao Yao San is formulated to help spread the liver Qiand relieve liver constraint, strengthen the spleen and nourish theblood.
