The Broken Shackles tincture is based on the traditional Xiao Yao San formula, probably one of the most frequently used traditional Chinese medicine formulas.
It addresses the imbalance of Gan (liver) and Pi (spleen), loosely translated as the issue of stress somatisation. The Chinese name Xiao Yao San is most often translated as ”Free Wanderer”, suggesting that this formula allows users to move on, free from their previous stress and tension.
Alternative names and translation: Freedom Powder, Free Wanderer Powder, Xiao Yao San.
Tongue: pale red, with pronounced edges
Pulse: XIAN (stringy)
