General information about the course.

Who can benefit from studying online ? 

  • Those who want flexible classes available at  their free time
  • Those who cannot commute to the location of their school of choice
  • Those who cannot take time off work to study
  • Those who want to follow a course inspired by the "Bologna regulations for Higher Education" in Europe. 
  • Those who want a curriculum that includes both Ancient and Modern (TCM) Chinese Medicine (most schools teach only the modern version).
  • Those who are happy to attend a practical intensive training at an 'end-of-the-year retreat'. In the retreat, each module corresponds to 8 hours.

How can AOM help students to become  mindful practitioners,   rather than just needle manipulators ?

AOM recognises that we are all 'wounded '   healers (K. Jung) and that maturing into mindful healers requires a lot more than just learning protocols and notions by heart. This is why  AOM makes sure that everything learnt has a transformative effect on the student.

Chinese Medicine - Acupuncture,  b. an intensive end-of-the-year retreat  of 15 days for practical training, c. training in Western Medical Studies. The 400 hours of clinical training follow the 3rd year.  The hours given here are class hours. The time students devote to studying is not given here, but it is normally calculated at a ration of 1:2. Each week  in the semestre comprises: 5 hours  (45 minutes each) of Chinese Medicine,   2:30 hours  (45 min each) of Western Medical Studies and  3 hours webinar.  Four weeks  make one module.

Module 1 is the only module that can be taken independently from the other modules.

I am a free spirit, a searcher and  someone devoted to the path of learning.  

I love life and because of this I teach ancient Chinese medicine, a medicine primarily concerned with supporting life, promoting alignment and healing through recreating resonance  of each individual with the whole . 

I have been teaching Chinese Medicine (acupuncture and Chinese herbs, qigong, Chinese medicine nutrition) since 1989,  both in  European Schools of Chinese Medicine and as speaker at various professional congresses in Europe, the United States and China. I have been teaching in AOM, my school,  since the time I founded it in 1996.

I have written articles for prestigious professional magazines and have translated parts of ancient books from Chinese into English.

I am thrilled to share AOM online with a team of amazing, deeply humane, spiritual and superbly skilled people, who will be at my side as co-teachers.
