We are pleased to announce the completion of our two part video series “Introduction to Chinese Medicine!”

Based on the lecture series of the same name and inspired by the positive feedback and encouragement that we received from attendees at our classroom sessions, the series offers a brief introduction to some of the foundational concepts and methods of classical Chinese medicine in a readily accessible and entertaining slideshow format.

For those unfamiliar with Chinese medicine, we hope that the series will convey something of the discipline’s essence at the same time as it provides all viewers with a fascinating glimpse at some of the contemporary and, at times,  surprising evidence in support of its principles.

We certainly had a great deal of fun producing the series!
