Whether you have any prior knowledge of herbs or not, you are looking for a practical training that will enable you to apply herbal medicine in your clinical practice from the place of understanding rather than relying on copying and memorisation.

The foundational theory and the style of herbalism that we teach in our programme stem from the Shang Han Lun as taught by Zheng Qinan, the originator of Huo Shen Pai (Fire Spirit school).

The programme is organised in five modules:

  • Module 1: Essential Foundations & Physiology;
  • Module 2: Diagnosis & Treatment Strategy;
  • Module 3: Herbs, Formula Design & Modifications;
  • Module 4: Introduction to Classical Formulas;
  • Module 5: Practicum;
  • Extra: Heart Cultivation.

This programme is approved by Balens Ltd, which means that their policies will cover the certified graduates who are UK residents.

Previous Participants Say:

Strong Foundations & Great Support

I greatly appreciated Marina’s Chinese herbal medicine certification programme, both from a practical and a theoretical perspective. The content is clearly developed to strengthen the student’s grasp on the foundations of classical Chinese medicine. During the live classes and going through cases deepened my understanding of the six conformations, the assessment and diagnosis of patients in a way that is logical and comprehensive. In addition, Marina puts great emphasis on going through questions and unclear areas in a very thorough way. In short, this programme exceeded my expectations.

Outstanding, Deep,

yet Easy to Understand

“I can highly recommend Marina's Chinese Herbal Medicine course. The circular physiology can be applied to all aspects of life and it has given me a profound understanding of physiology, pathology, diagnosis and treatment methods with Chinese Herbs.  Marina's teaching is outstanding.  She shares a deep knowledge of the heart of Chinese Medicine in a warm, elegant and easy to understand way.”

Excellent, Authentic, Stimulating & Challenging

I happily and highly recommend Marina's certification course on Chinese Herbal Medicine. It is clear throughout that she has put a tremendous amount of thought and care into the programme and the material is both stimulating and challenging, but not overwhelming. Her teaching is clear, precise, authentic, caring and heartfelt. This is an excellent course!”
