INTRODUCTION TO CLASSICAL FORMULAS[CHM-F]
16 JANUARY - 20 FEBRUARY 2022
5 weeks, 10 class hours
Develop your knowledge and skills of formula design and modification by learning about some of the key formulas of the Shang Han Lun, the main Chinese herbal medicine classic.
Rather than copying the prescriptions we aim to understand Zhang Zhong Jing's methods and formula architecture. We look at formulas in the context of the One Principle, the circle of the three Yin and three Yang (also knows as Liu JIng).
Introduction to Classical Formulas is a module in our Chinese Herbal Medicine Practitioner Certification programme. It is now offered as a stand alone course.
Prior knowledge of / qualification in Chinese herbal medicine is expected.
The programme is structured around the Six Conformations. We refresh our understanding of the three Yin and three Yang and their pathologies, and cover around 40 formulas that are grouped around the key ones:
Gui Zhi Tang

Xiao Chai Hu Tang
Bai Hu Tang
Cheng Qi Tang
Xie Xin Tang
