Prof VOLKER SCHEID MBAcC FRCHM

Volker grew up in a family engaged in the cultivation of medicinal herbs. Following an apprenticeship as a gardener he came to England to study phytotherapy, acupuncture, Chinese and Japanese herbal medicine. Further studies led him to China, where he spent three years at Beijing and Shanghai Universities of Chinese medicine as well as studying privately with different master physicians. It also led to a deepening academic involvement with East Asian medicines pursued at the University of Cambridge, SOAS, and now the University of Westminster, where he is director of the EASTmedicine Research Centre. He is also a licensed practitioner of natural medicine (Heilpraktiker) in his native Germany.

He is also a licensed practitioner of natural medicine (Heilpraktiker) in his native Germany.

In 1984, Volker together with his wife Cinzia Scorzon opened West Terrace Clinic in Eastbourne (UK), which they ran until 1999, when they returned to London. Opening a centre focusing on traditional East Asian medicines has been a long-standing dream that, after a long wait, finally became reality in 2010.

Volker believes that seeking to embody the ideal of the traditional scholar physician (
ruyi 儒醫) is the most effective means of making available the enormous resources of East Asian medicine to the modern West. He welcomes you to inquiry with him directly as to how these medical traditions might benefit you.

She was particularly fortunate to be able to study with Prof. Li Ding and Prof. You Yiren, two of Shanghai's foremost acupuncture physicians. She visited a wide range of other acupuncturists in Nanjing, Suzhou and Beijing, carrying out a series of interviews that became the foundation for an MSc in acupuncture.

Cinzia has undertaken further studies in China, Korea and Japan allowing her to draw on an extensive repertoire of techniques that, over time, she has blended into her very own style. She is attentive to the unique constitution and present condition of each person and will offer not only options for dealing with your current problems but also to safeguard treatment results and promote ongoing health and well-being.

On her return to the UK in 2001, Cinzia relocated to London, where she has lived and practiced since: initially at the Angel Chiropractic Clinic and now at The Clinic @ Southbank.
