Explore Classical Roots and Current Practice

Celebrating the vision of Dr. Wang Ju Yi


Welcome to East West College, provider of innovative continuing professional development courses (CPD).

Based in Farnham (Surrey, UK) we specialise in short courses for acupuncturists and practitioners of shiatsu and Chinese medicine. We teach online and in-person. Practical courses take place in Farnham, Reading or Edinburgh; if there is demand we can travel to near you.

An essential aspect of the theory and practice we teach is that of classical channel theory, presenting these key concepts in both a theoretical and practical manner:

- We explore Applied Channel Theory as taught by Dr Wang Ju-Yi with introductory as well as advanced courses.

- Another focus of study is effective pulse diagnosis as described in the Mai Jing taught by co-Principal Jamie Hamilton, whose book on this subject Essential Pulse Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine: Mai Jing ABC Method will be published on 23 April 2022.

This year we are delighted to welcome guest tutors to teach their specialisms for us:

- Advanced online workshops on Applied Channel Theory with Jonathan Chang

- For Yang Sheng and Qigong we are pleased to invite Peter Deadman, author of Live Well Live Long. Peter will teach a residential weekend in September 2022 following our excellent retreat of the same name in July 2021.
