Frances has been in practice for over 20 years, and divides her time between clinic and teaching. She runs the Herb Community Clinic at the Cholsey Complementary Health Centre in South Oxfordshire, and gives regular seminars & workshops in Britain and Europe. This May she is hosting a scalp acupuncture seminar with Dr Suzanne Robidoux.
Acupuncture has become very popular, particularly for pain relief. However it is much more than that. Skillfull needling of acupuncture points activates a network of fine channels that encompass the entire body to help us regulate our energy and maintain health and vitality.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Frances practices Classical Chinese herbal medicine, and runs the Herb Community Clinic in South Oxfordshire, offering a Jing Fang Apprenticeship in classical herbalism, as well as low cost Chinese herbal medicine treatments. We were fortunate to host Dr Feng Shi Lun in September 2015, who officially opened the Herb Community Clinic.
Healing is the transmission of energy to boost our own self-healing ability. It directs and enhances the effects of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, but is also a therapy in its own right. Healing energy can be seen as colours or sensed as warmth, cold or tingling.
Seminars & Workshops
From a Jing Fang (Classical herbalism) Apprenticeship, to Pulse Diagnosis seminars for acupuncturists, to practical workshops on Cooking with Chinese Herbs that are open to anyone interested, Frances is passionate about sharing the Chinese medicine approaches to healing she finds so effective.
