About Su Wen Herbs

Su Wen Herbs was founded in 1994 by world renewed author, herbalist and acupuncturist, Giovanni Maciocia®, on the belief that Chinese herbal medicine can help alleviate patient suffering and complement an acupuncturist’s clinical skill-set in treating their patients.

His ability to read and write Chinese gave him direct access to the Chinese classics. Giovanni formulated a range of herbal formulas, The Three Treasures, Women’s Treasure and The Little Treasures for acupuncturists to help improve their clinical results: he quickly realized that the patterns often presented by patients in the West in modern practice differed to those presented by Chinese patients hundreds of years ago. Diet, habitat, stress and modern living etc are different now than 2,000 years ago, and all contribute to more complex patterns than those described in ancient Chinese text books. Giovanni therefore skillfully adapted the ancient Chinese formulas to fit clinical conditions in the West. He also devised some of his own formulas. You can find a list of correspondences between the ancient Chinese formulas and Giovanni’s formulas here:
