Inner Cultivation; Individual Mentorship for TCM Professionals

Chinese Medicine with Akari

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been known for its integrative, holistic, and functional approach.

Since its development thousands of years ago, Chinese Medicine has been teaching people how to live, how to eat, and how to take care of their minds and bodies in everyday life based on the core principle called Yang Sheng - which means "nourishing life (through lifestyle)". 

Chinese Medicine is a lifestyle medicine that treats and provides people tools to restore health and stay well with well-aging and longevity in mind.

Pillars of Chinese Medicine

Herbal Medicine

Herbs are carefully formulated for individual condition(s). They can be taken or applied as daily tea, strong concoction, powder, tincture, topical, essential oil, flower essence, foot bath, or yoni steam (fumigation) etc.

Food Therapy

You are WHAT you eat, and you are HOW you eat. Chinese medicine based food therapy teaches you the right food options FOR YOU and how to enjoy them, so that you can make active choices to restore your health and stay well.

Lifestyle Coaching

  • My condition is quite simple. Can you treat me right away?
    Regardless of the severity, I will care for your health. Let's not skip steps. It is important to do an evaluation and set a treatment strategy so that our treatment brings long lasting favourable results.
  • I can tell you how my previous practitioner treated me. Can we skip intake and assessment?
    I do trust and respect other practitioners' diagnosis and treatment approach; however, none of the treatment is identical and your conditions might have changed since your last treatment with your previous practitioner. Furthermore, I might have different suggestions to your care. It is good to have your condition re-evaluated thoroughly to start fresh!
