International Jing Fang Conference 2018

Jing Fang Conference

We would like to deliver a key message to the industry that Jing Fang is playing an important role in Chinese medicine’s international development – George He

So after 11 months of planning and 8 jam-packed days, the International Jing Fang Conference is over! We had the vision to bring the tradition of Classical Herbalism forward to modern day healthcare – and we did a pretty good job! With the help of our partners and our expertise in TCM education, we combined our skills to organise a comprehensive event dedicated to Jing Fang.

Jing Fang originated in the Han Dynasty over 1800 years ago and since then, practitioners have adapted the theory to effectively treat patients. The efficient formulas and methods make Jing Fang the perfect stepping stone into TCM. At Phoenix, we strive to promote not just Jing Fang, but herbal medicine as a whole.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can not only cure patients but also get people from all over the world together. – Zan Yu Chen, President of the FTCMP

We were honoured to be joined by delegates from over 20 countries, including America, Australia, Switzerland and Singapore. The hundreds of attendees learnt from experts such as Professor Huang Huang and Dr Arnaud Versluys on topics including infertility, colon cancer and auto-immune diseases.

The Weekend Conference gave guests the perfect insight into Jing Fang as we experienced 8 lectures from all of our keynote speakers. Professor Huang Huang started the weekend with an insightful lecture on his ‘Methods and Experiences of Jing Fang Application’ followed by a captivating lecture by Professor Feng Shi Lun who helped us to understand the Six Channels. And of course, the weekend wouldn’t have been complete without a fun-filled Gala Dinner where we had the opportunity to wine and dine with our guests as we danced the night away!

The CPD lecture series took us on another Jing Fang learning journey! With 10 lectures in just 6-days, we gained an understanding of how effective Jing Fang can be and how we can incorporate it into our TCM practice.

Dr Arnaud Versluys’ course on ‘Using Classical Formulas to Treat Autoimmune Diseases’ showcased how essential Jing Fang can be in the Western world and left all attendees feeling extremely inspired!

Professor Feng Shi Lun and Dr Tao You Qiang then taught students how to treat Asthma and Bi-Syndromes using Jing Fang in their bi-lingual course which was expertly translated by Dr Katherine Gao.

Our 3-day course with Professor Huang Huang on ‘Body Constitution Different & Clinical Application’ was the perfect end to the event. Prof. Huang explored how to use Ban Xia, Gan Cao Lei Fang and Huang Qi Gui Zhi Wu Tang to treat a number of ailments including gastrointestinal diseases and mental health conditions. The whole 3-days were skillfully translated by Dr Yi Zhen Jia who not only translated the content but added her own clinical knowledge.

We are telling our fellow practitioners from all over the world that Jing Fang is the most precious thing in traditional Chinese medicine, and it’s also the most worthy to be studied and promoted. This is a chapter in my dream. – Professor Huang Huang
