Cat’s TCM Notes

Cat's TCM Notes is your portal for acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine education.

You have landed, either on purpose or accidentally, in Cat’s TCM Notes, a resource portal Chinese, Asian, and energetic medicine. Feel free to look around, download as needed, but always remember that the note downloads are to remain free to everyone. I hold the copyright, so I get to decide how that goes down. :)

The links in the menu above will take you to a whole world of places. Here’s what’s in each:

Learning Resources

This gives you access to educational content, class notes, charts, study materials and quizzes to help with your TCM education. You can also access this by clicking on Learning Resources in the menu on any page.

Clinic Resources

The Clinic menu item provides treatment protocols that have been found to be effective in clinic (including Esoteric Acupuncture patterns), treatment tips and how-to’s, and a Student Clinic survival guide.


Well now, the Herbs section is a bit of a problem. I used to have a huge single herb database out there, but the darned thing crashed and I couldn’t restore it off of the backups. Kind of took the wind out of my sails since that was hundreds of hours worth of work. If you prompt me, I might revive it, but if you don’t it will probably just be a sad tombstone to it’s former grandeur. . . may it rest in peace.

About Cat’s TCM Notes

This is a little bit about how this ball got rolling, a little comedy about me, and why I’m doing all this in the first place.
