Our Mission & Vision
Formed in 2016, the White Crane Academy offers comprehensive education in traditional Chinese medicine from foundation through to diploma. The White Crane Academy's flagship Chinese herbal medicine program emphasises the specific qualities of each herb, such as its temperature (cooling or warming), flavour (sweet, bitter, sour, etc.), and direction (upward, downward, inward, outward). Students learn to match these qualities to the individual needs of each patient, creating personalised herbal formulas that address their unique imbalances.
In addition to these foundational principles, the White Crane Academy's Chinese herbal medicine program emphasises the importance of clinical experience. Students gain hands-on experience in diagnosing and treating patients using Chinese herbal medicine under the supervision of highly experienced teacher-pracitioners. By emphasising the use of whole herbs, the energetics of herbs, and clinical experience, students gain a comprehensive understanding of how to use Chinese herbal medicine to promote health and healing in their patients.
