'Unlocking the Mysteries of Chinese Medicine: A Reference Manual for Consumers' - by Karen Pohlner

In our book we use layperson-friendly language to strip back many of the confusing philosophical concepts and common misconceptions associated with Chinese Medicine to clearly explain how modern-day consumers might best access and use this ancient medicine to achieve optimum health benefits.

To enhance consumer education and participation we provide a complementary free copy to all new clinic clients on their initial consultation.  We hope it gives an interesting and informative perspective on the history, philosophy and practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
