International Consultations via Skype

Classical Chinese Medicine health & nutrition consultations

consultant: Andreas Kuehne, G.Q.A., head of Thammavong School


For some people taking the trip to Thammavong School is not practical, especially for those who live far away and would have to spend a lot of time and money to travel to us.  

We are reaching out to help make consultations easier and more accessible by providing Skype consultations. With Skype consultations you get to have a face-to-face Classical Chinese Medicine consultation via webcam with one of our consultants from the comfort of your own home.

Our consultant will conduct a consultation just the same as if you were sitting in our office, even if you are hundreds of miles away. Using Skype with a webcam enables you to see your consultant through the consultation, which makes communication far superior than talking on the phone or via email.

Your Skype consultation

If you’d like to book a Skype consultation, please write an e-mail to

Please let us know what sort of issues you would like to discuss in your consultation, tell us your Skype username, and make sure you let us know what time zone you are in so we can arrange a suitable time. Also, please send us your diet plan, including all drinks and the time of your meals in the last 7 days.


What you need to do – a quick step-by-step guide:

Before your appointment day:
1. Write a mail to to book a Skype appointment (please include your issue, Skype name, time zone and diet plan)
2. Download Skype and create a Skype login with your email address (if you don't already have this)
3. Organise your payment (see details below)

On the day:
1. Please don't eat or drink anything (except water) 2 hours before your consultation (it may influence your tongue diagnosis)
2. Log in to Skype ahead of your appointment time
3. Check that your microphone, speakers and webcam are working properly. Try making a 'test call' to 'Skype test call' (in your contacts) to check the volume of your microphone and speakers. If you hear feedback or screeching from your speakers try using headphones instead.
4. Create a consultation space:
  • If you have a laptop take it to your bedroom or office, or somewhere else that you can shut the door
  • Make sure the kids (and pets!) have distractions or are looked after by someone else
  • Find a comfortable seat where you can see the webcam and screen easily
  • grab a pen and paper for your notes through the consultation, and if you have any particular questions that you would like to ask your consultant write them down so you have them ready to go
  • If you have any things (product samples, food diary, medications etc) that you want to share with your consultant, make sure you organise these ahead of time so they are within easy reach
5. Your consultant will start a video call at your appointment time.

Your privacy

Nothing you share with us will be shared with someone outside of our team of experienced Chinese Medicine practicioners and herbalists.
