The Academy of Oriental Medicine Ltd was started by Dr Graham Chandler & Dr Philip Lawes. It was founded with the idea to keep the disciplines of Traditional Chinese Medicine together as they aretaught in China and the Far East, instead of studying the disciplines individually as is the common practice within the UK. This gives the therapist a far greater knowledge and the potential to treat a wider range of diseases and dysfunction.
