Chinese Herbal Medicine
Traditional herbs are believed to interact with the vital energy (or life-force) which circulates in the body's meridian system, resolving imbalances or disharmonies in the meridian system and so promoting physical and psychological wellness. Herbs may also act as anti-microbials, sedatives/stimulants, or immunological agents, among a number of other important clinical functions. This course introduces students to the foundational theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary to promote healing through the use of Chinese herbal remedies.
The course begins by providing students with a comprehensive overview of the fundamental theoretical knowledge which underpins Chinese herbalism - including the meridian system, vital energy and the Yin-Yang balance, the Five Element Theory, and the concept of Tao. It introduces students to an array of Chinese herbal remedies and discusses how these may be effectively grown, purchased, stored, and prepared. The course then guides students through the practical skills required to promote physical and psychological healing through the use of these herbal remedies. The course concludes with a module on effective Chinese herbal medicine clinical practice.
