Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lan "Chinese medicine can be roughly classified into two parts: "Dao or Way", i.e. the way of constructing & developing the knowledge system; and "Shu or Skills", i.e. its clinical applications. My practice is based on my research on "Dao or Way" of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture - Metaphor: the Weaver of Chinese Medicine (Bautz, 2015)."
