Training in Chinese herbal medicine at

The White Crane Academy

At the White Crane Academy we are offering a new, comprehensive 3-year training in Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) that will enhance your herbal practice and extend the range and potency of your treatment options.

CHM has its own unique, highly sophisticated system of diagnosis and an unbroken written tradition of clinical practice stretching back over 2,000 years. In recent years CHM has been subject to increasingly rigorous in vitro and in vivo research and there are now over 60, 000 RCTs within the Chinese database.

At the White Crane Academy we are committed to combining traditional CHM approaches and cutting edge research to offer powerful and practical treatments for many contemporary healthcare issues. Our key tenets are to provide:

  • Academic rigour
  • Clinical competence
  • An integration of modern research and traditional knowledge
  • A deep connection with the plant kingdom

I have explored these tenets in more depth and described my own experiences of studying Chinese herbal in theĀ White Crane White Paper. If you would like to find out about this in-depth training programme we provide then you can do so at our website

We have assembled a highly qualified team of experienced practitioners (with some familiar faces) to teach the course. We will also be offering a thorough clinical training to allow you to put theory into practice with confidence. For those without previous experience of Traditional Chinese Medicine we will be providing an additional introductory module to familiarise you with the key concepts and diagnostic principles that underpin the practice of CHM.
