Dr Feng’s generosity in passing this knowledge on to us foreign students is unsurpassed, and we remain hugely grateful to him, and to all those around him who have facilitated the development of our work. Particular thanks go to Suzanne Robidoux who translated for us and shared her knowledge with us.
We are a group of Chinese medicine practitioners and lifelong students, with personal experience of using Jing Fang effectively in clinical practice. Our faculty is led by Frances Turner and continues to expand and develop as more practitioners learn this wonderful system of Classical Chinese Herbalism.
The Jing Fang Apprenticeship was set up by Frances Turner with Maggie Bavington after studying in the clinic of Dr Feng Shi-Lun in Beijing. Frances had been teaching Chinese herbal medicine in the UK for some years, and realised the extraordinary potential of Jing Fang to improve our clinical efficacy. She went on to study further with Dr Feng, and also invited him to England to teach, setting up the Jing Fang Apprenticeship (JFA) in 2015, and the School of Classical Chinese Herbalism (SCCH) in 2020.
