Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée
Elisabeth studied philosophy, literature and classics at Paris University where she completed her Master’s degree in Classics and in Philosophy, and then in Chinese. In the early 1970’s, Ms. Elisabeth Rochat embarked on her study of Chinese medicine, and together with Dr. Schatz and Father Larre, began the first study group of the classical medical texts in Paris. This lead to the founding of the European School of Acupuncture in Paris in 1976. Ms. Rochat continues to teach worldwide, working with both medical and philosophical Classics. She believes that the real knowledge of the Chinese vision of life is useful not only to understand Chinese medicine from a scholarly point of view, but also to deepen one’s practical approach and clinical skill.
