Medicine is evolving.

A growing number of patients want a more natural and holistic approach to healthcare and the medical community is taking note the benefits and successes of Chinese medicine.

More and more medical professionals want to understand how Chinese medicine can benefit their patients and how to combine both a Chinese and Western medical approach to enhance their practice and be able to use the best of both medical systems to treat patients with the most appropriate methods for their individual conditions.

This is your opportunity to study Chinese medicine and syndrome acupuncture as practised in China today and learn how to combine the technical expertise of Western medicine with the holistic wisdom of Chinese medicine. Through lectures, patient case studies and practical sessions with our highly qualified team of doctors, you will discover a different approach to diagnosing and treating patients and open up your mind to a new way of thinking about medicine.
