Welcome

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 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.

Objective of this Website

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. Our website features an extensive collection of video-taped lectures and previously unpublished written material, which invite you to engage with and participate in constructive dialogue.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.

Upcoming (2024)

13-MONTH CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

The Cosmic Map: Unlocking the Clinical Potential of the Acupuncture Point Names

With Heiner Fruehauf
Begins October 7, 2024

We are pleased to announce that Heiner Fruehauf will be teaching a new 13-month certificate program beginning this fall. This online program will synthesize an aspect of his life’s work–featuring the alchemical roots of acupuncture.

Heiner will take you on a tour-de-force teasing out each layer of meaning through multiple translations—a feat that has never been done before in any published work on acupuncture in China or the West. In each instance, clinical context and relevance will be provided by the presentation of case examples and experience by senior acupuncturists Bob Quinn and Michael Berletich.

To get a flavor for what this program will be like, you can view some testimonials from the recent herbs certificate program on the information & registration page of our website.

Revitalizing Eco-Retreat in Mexico

Qigong, Nature, and Rejuvenation with Heiner Fruehauf
December 14-21, 2024
Playa Viva Eco-Resort
Zihuatanejo, Mexico

My German ancestors, physicians in the European Nature Cure tradition, all emphasized the importance of rest and relaxation in natural settings. Since I was a little boy, therefore, oceans and mountains and forests have always held the promise of revitalization for me. I like nothing better than to spend my vacations on undeveloped earth, preferably in places that offer authentic regional food! While the combination of pristine natural scenery and delectable cooking is hard to find, there are several places in the world where I regularly return to because they embody this formula. Playa Viva, an eco-resort situated on an undeveloped stretch of the Pacific Coast in Mexico, is such a place.

I invite you to join me at Playa Viva for a glorious immersion in the bounties of nature—perfect temperature salt water, dolphins swimming by the breakfast table, hatching turtles, sunrise walks along miles of pristine beach, daily qigong sessions in an oceanside studio, and lovingly prepared organic meals made from materials produced on-site.

A MESSAGE FROM HEINER FRUEHAUF

It is with great sadness that I inform you of Prof. Deng Zhongjia’s passing on February 26, 2022. Prof. Deng’s prolific work and academic philosophy was perhaps the most important influence on the process of founding the College of Classical Chinese Medicine at NUNM thirty years ago.
