Planetary Herbals Neck and Shoulders Support™combines kudzu, traditionally used to support the upper back, with other classic Chinese herbs that have a renowned ability to promote relaxation. In traditional Chinese herbalism, botanicals have long been used to support the back
In Chinese herbalism, herbs are used to support general back health. Ancient formulas have long supported specific back areas by focusing on the liver, kidneys and specific muscles. According to traditional Chinese texts, the kidneys are stated to rule the bones, while the liver is said to govern the tendons. The botanicals used in the lower back formula are traditionally used to support the kidneys and liver, and are said to strengthen the sinews and bones…and benefit the joints, while herbs for the neck and shoulders are also said to support muscle relaxation.
Like other Planetary Herbals products, Lower Back Support™ and Neck and Shoulders Support™ unite time-tested herbal traditions with modern science. Each Planetary Herbals formula is exclusively developed by licensed acupuncturist and clinical herbalist Michael Tierra, L.Ac., O.M.D. A clinician since 1972, Michael Tierra is an internationally recognized authority on herbs and best-selling author of herbal books, including The Way of Herbs and Planetary Herbology.
