Write for Chinese Medicine Living

Thank you for your interest in writing for Chinese Medicine Living.

Chinese Medicine Living was created in 2013 by acupuncturist & herbalist Emma Suttie as a way to share information about natural health and healing to a wider audience than just her patients. The articles on Chinese Medicine Living offer information about a diverse range of topics that include:

  • Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, Chinese herbs, moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, tui na, qi gong, tui na, cosmetic acupuncture, mien shiang, etc…)
  • natural and/or traditional medicines
  • alternative healing practices
  • herbal & plant medicines
  • energy medicine
  • meditation
  • spirituality
  • martial arts
  • nutrition
  • natural living & living in harmony with nature
  • mental health
  • the emotions and emotional health

Because Chinese Medicine is holistic, there are many subjects that are relevant to our health and wellbeing and articles on any of those subjects are welcome.

The goal of Chinese Medicine Living is to educate the public about Chinese Medicine, as well as other natural medicines and healing practices that are perhaps not as accessible (and not discussed by many Western doctors) so that people are able to make educated choices about their health. Chinese Medicine Living is a place where we can honestly and truthfully discuss how to live a healthy lifestyle in our modern world.
