You will Learn

All About Herbs

You will learn how to understand the soul of each herb and how plants communicate with the body on all levels, physical, emotional and soul.

How to build Blends

To build an effective blend, we must understand how herbs communicate within themselves, and with each other so they work in synergy.

12 meridians & organs

We need to understand deeply where an imbalance starts for the process to succeed, Understanding the meridian system is our key to this.

Herbal Energy

Every herb holds an energy. This energy is a catalyst that provokes a reaction in the body as a temperature. You will learn to recognise whether a body needs heating or cooling, and which herbs to use.

the 8 principles

Understanding the body’s language through TCM 8 principles allows us to create a blend that “speaks” the language of the body for best results.

How Much to Offer?

How much herb blend is taken in can change how it affects the body energetics and temperature. How much we offer at one time is important.
