The improved quality of modern lifestyle combined with workplace stress, long working hours at the desk and prolonged exposure to air-conditioning can result in the invasion of cold-wind-dampness in the neck and shoulders. This causes the slow flow of qi and blood in the neck and shoulder. Symptoms include discomfort in the neck and shoulders, stiff and weak neck, dizziness, etc.
H&F Shoulder Wellness Capsule is a modified formulation based on the classical formula of Cinnamon Twig Decoction plus Pueraria. It uses Ramulus Cinnamomi to harmonise the construction and defence qi, resolve the exeterior and dissipate cold; Radix Puerariae resolves the flesh and resolve the exterior; Rhizoma seu Radix Notopterygii and Radix Angelicae Dahuricae induce perspiration, resolve the exterior and relieve pain in the neck
and shoulders; Fructus Chaenomelis dispels the wind, eliminates dampness, frees collaterals and relieves pain; Radix Angelicae Sinensis, Radix Paeoniae Rubrae and Rhizoma Ligustici Chuanxiong activate and nourish the blood, regulate the meridians and relieve pain. Not only can this herbal combination eliminate the exterior wind-cold pattern, but it can also resolve pain in the muscles, regulate the meridians, activate collaterals, and relieve pain and inflammation.
