Xiao Huo Luo is a regarded Chinese medicine formula that warms and unblocks the channels to support normal movement and function of the limbs


This formula invigorates the blood, unblocks the channels, dispels wind and dampness, and transforms phlegm to relieve numbness and discomfort. Xiao Huo Luo is also particularly useful in relieving discomfort due to Wind-Cold-Damp obstruction ("Bi syndrome" in TCM). In both cases, symptoms are aggravated by Cold and there is a reduced range of motion. Frequently, these symptoms are most severe in the lower body.

The tongue is typically moist and white, reflecting interior cold. Xiao Huo Luo Pian is both warming and dispersing, therefore it is contraindicated in cases of Yin deficiency, weak constitution, and pregnancy.


Today, Xiao Huo Luo may be used to provide support for rehab with the appropriate TCM pattern presentation.


Xiao Huo Luo is an important classical formula for releasing wind, cold, and dampness from the body and restoring proper physiological function to the channels.
