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. Workshops are typically taught in Reading, Edinburgh or Farnham but 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 will be published in April 2022.
This year we are delighted to welcome guest tutors to teach their specialisms for us:
On Applied Channel Theory: Jason Robertson and Jonathan Chang; and on Yang Sheng and Qigong: Peter Deadman.
"Enjoyable, articulate and inspiring, I would recommend Jamie's 'Mai Jing Pulse Diagnosis' to almost every acupuncturist I know". Jonathan C-W, Edinburgh. May 2019
"Very interesting to have more ways to analyse a pulse in a practical way". Kirsten, Falkirk. May 2019
"This Applied Channel Theory course with Michael Phoenix has been the most relaxed, enjoyable and informative course I have ever been on. The combination of theory and practical brought things alive. I have learnt lots of new techniques to take back to clinic and I know I will have good results. A totally brilliant 3 days". Nov 2018
" Studying shiatsu at East West College has been a joy. Jamie is an excellent, enthusiastic and inspiring tutor and the charming setting of the Tatami Room is the perfect tranquil location for learning and practising Shiatsu. Acquiring the skills to be able to make a difference to an individual’s well-being has given me a refreshingly new outlook on life." Sue, Oxford 2012
