Chinese Herbal Medicine
The course extends students' acupuncture practice into the other of the major modalities of Chinese medicine; it is a theoretical and clinical professional entry-training; students develop their diagnostic and case formulation skills and also learn the materia medica and formulae of Chinese herbal medicine; phytochemistry and pharmacokinetics are integrated into the understanding of the energetic interactions of herbs; extensive practice with patients take place in on-site teaching clinic where theory is deconstructed and applied; working in the dispensary with raw herbs develop their kinaesthetic skills to deepen understanding; the aim is that students learn how to modify classic formulae to create new formulae which address complex patterns of illness; this course contextualises Chinese medicine within its historical roots, and grounds it in the legal, ethical and inter-professional framework of the UK.
