Clearcut, Inspirational & Anchored in Classics

Herbal medicine is undeniably a must in any clinical practice of Chinese medicine and the path to an acquisition of the basics of this immense ancient treasure of knowledge is normally a very arduous journey.

Marina Danilova's online course offers an introduction to a systemised approach to Chinese herbal medicine  which is at the same time directly applicable in your daily clinical practice. Her teaching is direct, clearcut, inspirational and firmly anchored in classical Chinese medical theory. You will come from this course with the ability to diagnose and treat many health issues, especially cases of chronic deficiency, using a relatively small number of herbs and I warmly recommend this program.

Learnt a lot about Physiology, Herbs & Formulas, & Teaching

I have taken two courses with Marina Danilova.  I took her Chinese Herbal Medicine course and then eagerly signed up for the follow-up course on case studies. Marina’s style is organized, direct and clear.  She is able to take complex theory and express the essence of it in an accessible way.  Each class clearly built on the one before, giving students the tools to work effectively with the theory.  All along, the teachings came alive through actual case studies, ours and hers.  I learned a lot in her classes about physiology, herbs and formulas, but also about teaching.  

I highly recommend her as a teacher for beginners and seasoned practitioners.

Clear, Effective, Practical & Revolutionary

"Marina Danilova is obviously onto the core, the inner being, the very heart of ancient wisdom known as Chinese Medicine. And not only is she a great Practitioner, she is also a great Teacher! With clarity, accuracy and elegance she is able to compress thousands of years of knowledge into one little red pill. And, offering it to you, she also gives you a few very effective and precise tools to handle it. Marina’s teaching makes you see truth, think for yourself, stand on your feet and continuously develop a medicine that truly makes a difference.

After seven years in a Hunyuan clinic as an assistant, I am totally impressed of how easy Marina manages to sum up everything I saw and heard over the years into a few classes. And I am grateful that I now feel more ready than ever to take action as a practitioner.

Marina’s teaching is hands on, practical and revolutionary. With a steady hand and as a reliable friend she guides you through what you need to know to get even further. I strongly recommend her teachings!"

Brilliant, Encouraging & Insightful 

“This course was such a gift. In all my studies, I am always seeking to understand the root. I wasn’t sure how to accomplish that with herbs. This course not only gave me that insight but the knowledge transfers beautifully into the acupuncture side of what I have learned as well.

Marina's perspective is brilliant. Her heart was the greatest gift in this teaching. I feel encouraged and confident to continue on in my practice.

Thank you very much.

I really loved the course. It was one of the best educational investments I have made.

Impressive &

Good Return on Investment

"I am hugely impressed of how much I learned during this course. From no pre-knowledge to feeling equipped to treat patients with Chinese herbs.

Marina's way of building the course is easy to follow and supports both the foundations with true understanding of the theory and also the hands-on practice. Material, time, structure - everything gets the highest marks.

Even though it is an online course, you can really feel how skilled and warm-hearted Marina is, which made me feel safe as a participant to ask questions and share my thoughts.

Good return on investment, both in terms of money and time!

Clinically Valuable & Deep

I really enjoyed Marina’s teaching. Especially the concept of circular physiology as an easily accessible way to work with a profound understanding of yin and yang, and life as a function of yin and yang. The herbal application to this is beautiful. Taking this course has added valuable and deep understanding to my daily work in clinic.
