Chinese Medicine: 4000 years & still growing!
Chinese medicine is a modern term used to describe a vast field of medicine that has been evolving for over 4000 years and is still successfully used today. Until the 1980s students learned through years of apprenticehip with an experienced teacher. Since then, schools have been established around the country and a typical program is 3 to 6 years including clinical internship.
Chinese medicine as a study and practice includes herbal medicine and acupuncture, with a profound foundation in a medical paradigm or structure of understanding who we are as humans, our complex interrelationship with the earth and cosmos, and our innate ability to heal.
