About Chinese Medicine


The language and theory of Chinese medicine is time-tested, logically consistent, connects mind/body & environment, and can be used to explain, prevent, and cure most disorders and diseases in all times and cultures.


Concepts that are simple and intuitive make Chinese medicine the logical lingua franca of general health care, the natural partner of emergency medicine, and the perfect vehicle for full participation of folks in their own healing processes.

"Chinese Medicine for the Modern World"
