Organised and hosted by:
We all had the same vision; to bring the tradition of Classical Herbalism forward to modern day healthcare. With expertise in education, supply chain, marketing and research, we have been able to combine our skills to organise an incredible and comprehensive event dedicated to Jing Fang.
What is Jing Fang?
Jing Fang 经方 or Classical Chinese medicine is a system which identifies patterns according to the Six Channels which was first described by master Zhang Zhongjing 张仲景 in the Shanghan Lun 伤寒论 (Treatise on Cold Damage). Jing Fang has been developed into its own theory within Chinese medicine. In addition, we categorise symptoms according to the Eight Guiding Principles: Yin and Yang; Exterior and Interior; Heat and Cold; and lastly Deficiency and Excess. Using this system, we are able to recognise the root cause and treat the patient, and not just the disease itself. Jing Fang is based upon using simple ingredients and light dosages, from which has resulted in great clinical efficacy in short periods of time. For this reason, Jing Fang has gained a lot of attention amongst practitioners in Europe, the USA and Canada.
Chinese medicine is not provided through primary healthcare systems in the West and so training can be very limited. In the UK, education in herbal medicine is now more threatened than ever before. Jing Fang is our chance to change that. We’ve secured 9 of the world’s most well known Jing Fang teachers including Professor Huang Huang and Professor Feng Shilun. For the first time in history, these world-class academics will be gathering under one roof to teach us their knowledge that they have accumulated over years of unprecedented practice.
We have support from Universities, societies and regulatory bodies from all over the world, all of whom share our vision and ideology for Jing Fang and we hope you will to.
We strongly recommend that all delegates attend the Weekend Conference as it will give you a comprehensive insight into various styles, topics and case studies from our Jing Fang masters. It will also give you the chance to meet like-minded practitioners from all over the world. To take your learning to the next level, we have a week of exciting CPD courses exploring topics such as autoimmunity, chronic respiratory disorders and infertility.
I'm an acupuncturist but haven't trained in herbal medicine, can I attend?
Yes absolutely! Jing Fang is an excellent starting point for acupuncturists who want to learn herbal medicine, especially as you already have knowledge in Chinese medicine. Jing Fang will take your practice and career to the next level.
You will learn how to diagnose patients according to the symptoms presented and then how to prescribe formulas. Our keynote speakers will teach you how to adjust your formulas throughout treatment to help you achieve results in the most efficient way possible.
We recommend that you attend the two-day conference to give you a comprehensive insight into the world of Jing Fang from several world-class experts. Then, we strongly recommend following on with Professor Huang Huang’s 3 day course on ‘Jing Fang Body Constitution, Differentiation, and Clinical Application‘. This course is perfect for practitioners without any prior herbal knowledge, as it takes students on a step-by-step approach to learning how to assign the correct formula to each patient. Professor Huang Huang is the Dean of the Jing Fang Institute at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine, and is hailed as one of the most highly regarded Jing Fang masters in the world.
