Classical Chinese Medicine reflects the voices of an international movement seeking to honour and restore the classical origins of Chinese medicine.

This site features articles, lectures, and practical demonstrations by Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc, Founding Professor of the College of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon, and a group of like-minded scholars in China and the West who are committed to transmit the time-honoured science of Eastern medicine as a highly sophisticated and deeply spiritual art form.

The primary goal of the site is to become an archive for a variety of unique material on Classical Chinese Medicine and its importance in clinical and educational settings. We feature an extensive collection of video-taped lectures and previously unpublished written material. We invite you to engage with the material on the site and participate in constructive dialogue. Our goal is to foster interaction between students, practitioners, and scholars of Chinese medicine in order to preserve its essence and promote its importance around the world.
