Her classes weave philosophy, linguistics, poetry, and ancient Chinese teachings into a tapestry that not only teaches the ancient's views of the natural order of life, but also about the practice of medicine."

"Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallee is a truly gifted teacher. I have never met anyone in greater command of the Classics of Chinese Medicine. Her classes are lively, insightful, packed with wonderful information and have changed the way I think about Traditional Chinese Medicine, forever. I have studied with her a great deal in the last year and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I can wholeheartedly recommend any class taught by Elisabeth."
