Deborah studies and translates Classical Chinese medical texts, with a particular interest in the background and roots of Stems and Branches, divination and calendars, astronomy and astrology. Her undergraduate dissertation was on spirals and their applications in acupuncture, drawing on her earlier studies in pure mathematics and nature.
She has extended her Stem and Branches understanding with further study with many great teachers including Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée and Dr. Ed Neal (Neijing acupuncture). She is a keen student who is often seen at CPD events.

These are recordings of three half-day afternoon seminars with Deborah Woolf which took place in the Spring of 2021. In each seminar, Deborah uses medical and alchemical classics to present an integrative study of the acupuncture points in each of the three jiaos. She discusses point names and functions; similarities and differences – why choose this point rather than another, etc.

Feedback from previous participants:
“This CPD created so many links that has given me a better understanding of Chinese medicine and how it flows, therefore giving me a better understanding of how to diagnose and treat. Very good teacher.”
“Fascinating content and engaging and lively teaching; incredible depth of knowledge. An extremely interesting and well taught course that deepens the understanding of the Chinese medicine approach to the internal organs. Best taught in 3 separate days as it covers a very wide and deep knowledge of the subject.”
