I work in my own clinic in Achim, located between Bremen and Hamburg in the north of Germany. I am a TCM practitioner and prescribe western herb formulas using Chinese’s Medicine diagnostic framework.
Since 2009 I teach the use of Western Herbs in TCM within the context of Chinese Medicine theories. In 2010 I began organising the Western Herb track at the TCM Kongress in Rothenburg.
In the late eighties I went to university studying medicine, chemistry and philosophy and then switched to Chinese Medicine and alternative medicine studies in 1991. My teachers were Ruthild Schulze, Stephan Raatz (TCM), and Ulrike Struck, Klaus Krämer, Sibylle van Luijk (Herbs / Phytoherapy) in Berlin
