Andrew Flower

Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine

Welcome to my website and thanks for your interest.

These pages will provide you with a brief introduction to Chinese medicine and will also inform you of where I practice and about some of the research I have been involved in over the past 15 years. There is also some information about the training in Chinese herbal medicine that we are offering at The White Crane Academy. If you have any questions or would like more information please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Chinese medicine is a form of traditional medicine that evolved in East Asia over a period of several thousand years. It combines a detailed and holistic approach to diagnosis with a broad spectrum of therapeutic interventions. These include acupuncture, herbal medicine, and lifestyle advice to treat disease and to restore and maintain good health and well-being. For more information have look at the FAQ page on this site.
