First, we learn and contemplate the traditional perspective on being alive, having a body, and how it synchronises with nature. We are getting a firm grasp of the very “root” of Chinese medicine, which is the ancient principle of Life (Heaven) submerging into the Body (Earth) and the circular physiology unveiling from this principle. We build a practical understanding of the functioning of the healthy body (physiology) using Six Conformations (Liu Jing). We conclude with the model of health which becomes the basis for the diagnosis, treatment strategy and herbal application.
Mastering the diagnosis is at the core of any successful treatment. When we comprehend the basics fully, we can successfully interpret disharmonies, big or small. To ensure the precision of the diagnosis we learn to have a structure to the intake and ask questions with purpose. We aim for the level of accuracy that enables us to avoid big mistakes, and anticipate and correct small ones. When the diagnosis is spot-on the clinical application becomes straightforward and safe. We act with confidence.
Practicing is an important part of the learning approach for this programme. You start applying learnings to your clinical cases early in the programme, while in its final module case studies become the primary focus. We continue learning from each other's cases in the live classes. The module completes with the final written project and the exam for those who pursue the certification.
The therapeutic focus of the program is the application of herbal medicine. We learn how to achieve results using about 40 herbs that are safe and work well together. Like with the rest of the training, we aim for understanding rather than copying. When each herb’s action is clear, designing and modifying formula becomes logical and does not require memorisation.
