The phrase “tong ji jang” is rooted in an ancient Shih family tradition of involvement in the healing arts. Melanie Shih’s great-great-grandfather owned and ran a pharmacy by this very name in China many years ago. Melanie has chosen to carry on this tradition and so has assembled an impressive collection of many of the original herbal teas and preparations that were sold in that Chinese pharmacy generations ago. She also brings you more modern devices, such as the Moli magnetic acupressure watch and the magnetic drinking cup, various massage tools, Tai Chi clothing, books and videos . . . In fact, you should think of this catalog as a special place to come, where together we can find relief for your specific ailments, or simply for the daily stresses of life.
