ICEAM London

The London branch of ICEAM® was the first international branch established. The first seminars here began in 2006 and since then we have successfully hosted two cycles of the Canonical Chinese Medicine Training™ and graduated many Diplomates in Canonical Chinese Medicine® (DCCM). Initially the seminars were held at the beautiful Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich then, in 2009, the Institute moved its venue to the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading.

In addition to the Training seminars, the Institute has held a series of Clinical Training days wherein students observe Arnaud Versluys PhD, MD (China), LAc, or London ICEAM Director, Laurie Ayres BSc, DCCM, LAc, holding consultations with patients, discussing their pulse findings, prescribing canonical formulas and outlining expected treatment progression.

With renewed interest in Chinese medical classics and herbalism in the UK, the 3rd London ICEAM Canonical Chinese Medicine Training™ course will kick-off in February 2019 taught by London ICEAM Director, Laurie Ayres, Dr Arnaud Versluys and Fukushin instructor Tony Todd.

Canonical Chinese Medicine is the style of Chinese medicine practiced along the tenets codified in the Western and Eastern Han dynasty (approx. 200 BC- 200 CE) medical classics or canons. It is the foundation of both clinical and theoretical Chinese medicine as we know it. Canonical Chinese medicine is comprised of two main schools being the Yellow Emperor huangdi 黄帝school of Medical Canons yijing pai 醫經派and the Divine Farmer shennong 神农school of Canonical Formulas jingfang pai经方派.

London – Shanghan Lun Abdominal Diagnosis Fukushin

January 18, 2020 - January 19, 2020
ICEAM London, 15 Spa Road
Bermondsey, London SE16 3SA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Japanese abdominal diagnosis or Fukushin is the diagnostic art developed in medieval Japan based on the canonical writings by Zhang Zhongjing. Careful inspection of the Shanghan Zabing Lun reveals countless references to abdominal conditions that could only have been diagnosed by actual palpation of the abdomen. The skill however never fully developed in China but flourished in Japan. Throughout history, two major trends and types of abdominal diagnosis developed, being the Nanjing and Shanghan Lun schools, which respectively diagnose the abdomen in service of either acupuncture or meridian treatment, and herbal treatment. Fukushin refers specifically to Shanghan Lun style of abdominal diagnosis developed by Japanese scholars during Edo period (1603-1867 CE) for the purpose of prescribing the Han dynasty formulas of Zhang Zhongjing.

ICEAM London, 15 Spa Road

+ Google Map

The Shanghan Zabing Lun or the Treatise on Cold Damage and Complex Diseases is considered the forefather of all formula books. The original work was lost to the tooth of time, but most of its contents are preserved in two extant works called the Treatise on Cold Damage shanghan lun and the Concise Essentials of the Golden Cabinet jingui yaolue. The first work primarily addresses externally triggered disorders while the latter work describes the pathology and treatment of complex diseases generated internally.

London – Shanghan Lun Canonical Formula Modification System

April 11, 2020 - April 12, 2020
ICEAM London, 15 Spa Road
Bermondsey, London SE16 3SA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

During this course, a strict system of clinical modification will be taught. The system was developed by Dr. Versluys over the course of the last ten years by analyzing both Zhang Zhongjing’s prescriptions as well as the characteristics of the Tian-Zeng lineage’s clinical practice. It is fully grounded and based in the classical writings of the original designer of the formulas, Zhang Zhongjing. The system is organized along a hierarchical system of formula modifications and provides a failsafe method for modification to adapt to a broader collection of complex clinical manifestations as often encountered in Chinese medicine clinic in the West. A waterproof modification system forms the basis of classical herbal practice and the elimination of random clinical variables which are the greatest cause for failure in clinic.

London – Tian-Lineage Jingui Yaolue Pulse Diagnosis

November 28, 2020
ICEAM London, 15 Spa Road
Bermondsey, London SE16 3SA United Kingdom
+ Google Map

Diagnosis in Han-dynasty was primarily done by taking the pulse. Every formula can be identified through one or more pulse patterns presenting in the patient. Though many pulses are mentioned in the Jingui Yaolue, crucial detail is often hidden, and it is as if this knowledge is merely implicitly present, as if it were embedded. Therefore, the Tian Heming Canonical Formula lineage’s main strength and contribution to the field of Chinese medicine to have made this advanced knowledge on pulse diagnosis crystal clear and evident. This knowledge has never been recorded in any book, but was rather transmitted orally from Dr. Tian Heming through Dr. Zeng Rongxiu to Dr. Arnaud Versluys. The latter of which has been teaching this material around the world in more systematized and structured format since a few years. Note regarding the Shanghan Lun and Jingui Yaolue Pulse Seminars: due to the proprietary and complex nature of these seminars, they cannot be registered for individually and can only be taken as part of the total sequence. The pulse seminars are open for individual registration only to Diplomates of Canonical Chinese Medicine already certified by our institute who wish to retake the seminar.
