China Medical Trip

There was a fantastic energy on the trip, generated by the care, attention and generosity of Dr Lily and Professor Mei, and by the zeal and goodwill of the entire group. Witnessing so much history at first hand, and life as it is lived today in Luoyang and Beijing, was a rare privilege. No less so was the chance to experience the collective enthusiasm for the power of traditional medicine, though no amount of Qi could, alas, ensure longevity of sufficient duration for a full understanding of the richness of Chinese civilization.

                Nicolas Stainer (Non-Medic)

I had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of it. I learned a lot, stayed in beautiful rooms at the hotel, and enjoyed the food and company of the others. The whole China trip was mind-blowing for me and I definitely will go back. I am really inspired and thanks to the fantastic travel group, it was a very special trip for me I will never forget.

                Ursula Voss (Medic) 

Dear Professor Mei,

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to China with you and Dr. Lily and the other members of the group.  The tour of the two cities, Luoyang and Beijing, offered a fascinating insight into the ancient and modern aspects of China, its culture and its rapid economic growth. The development from the hutongs to the high rise buildings is phenomenal and the mind boggled at the speed and scale of the transformations taking place there.

In those intense two weeks I experienced so many sights and sounds and tastes and smells – all my senses were heightened!  A land and culture which seemed so distant and mysterious to me was brought to life and the reality of it was breath-taking and thought-provoking.  It was a truly marvellous experience and I am left with a desire to explore more of this fascinating country.  Thank you for organizing this wonderful trip and making it such a memorable one.

With best wishes,

Babli Lodh

This was a wonderful, absorbing and intensely interesting trip that made a deep impression on us. The group itself was tremendous fun and those who came made our trip to Luoyang and Beijing a very memorable experience.

                Richard & Sue Garlick (Medics) 

Dear Professor Mei,

I want to thank you very much for allowing me to join your group that recently visited China. The experience was exhilarating and fascinating, even though I am not medically qualified. What I saw has inspired me to find out more about China and Chinese culture and tradition. I learnt a great deal about traditional Chinese medicine which has helped me understand better the treatment I have been receiving for many years at your clinic in Camden Town. I also enjoyed tremendously the visits you arranged to the sites of historical interest as well as to the hospitals.

I will always remember the enormous effort you made to ensure that every aspect of the tour was an outstanding success: the hotels you chose, the shows you arranged, the restaurants you took us to, the continual attention you gave to each and every one of us to make sure that we got the most out of the trip. Although the tour lasted only two weeks, I feel that you provided me with a wide ranging understanding of many aspects of Chinese culture and way of life.

Once again, many, many thanks,

Yours truly

Miriam Blum
