TCM uses, in particular, analysis / synthesis methods and takes a holistic approach of the patient, and includes acupuncture and massage as a way to treat patients. For the Western world to use these Chinese herbs and practices as medical approaches TCM companies will have to develop certain approaches, activities which are taking place in WestHolland.

Because of this, we believe that we can serve our European customers even better than before. Moreover, business travel is easy to plan because The Hague is close to Schiphol International Airport and Rotterdam-The Hague Airport. Our distribution center in the Rotterdam region is also easily accessible.”
