Welcome to Asanté – Timeless wisdom for a modern world
“Chinese Medicine is no longer a strange name and concept for western people, particularly in 2015 when the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to a Chinese Doctor for her work on a Chinese Herb. For the last thirty years I have been working and teaching Chinese medicine in the UK and all over the Europe. I have come to realize how much people here appreciate being able to find and see a good Chinese doctor and to learn about Chinese medicine – from the underlying wisdom of its philosophy to the vast clinical skills and experience of a real Chinese medicine clinic. That is why 15 years ago I set up the Asante Academy.
“Asante” is from the French word “Sante”, which means good health. Gaining good health is the core of our business and mission. I founded the Academy for people who wanted to gain true health through our authentic natural treatments such as herbs and acupuncture. But I wanted also for the Academy to be a place where people could learn about the ancient knowledge and wisdom of Chinese Medicine.
Today, 15 years since we were founded, I am proud to say that we have gained a reputation as one of the leading Chinese Medicine clinics and teaching institutes in the UK and Europe. One CEO from a leading Acupuncture register commented that we were the best in the country. One doctor gave up his medical job in a European country to come study Chinese medicine at Middlesex University (our partner) – he said simply it was because of Asante. Our patients, from royalty and celebrities to hard working people all over the world, have praised us highly for successfully treating their wide-ranging conditions, including infertility, skin problems, pain and many others. We are also very pleased to have pioneered Acupuncture service in the NHS and for over a decade we have seen tens of thousands of NHS patients in hospitals.
We know that what we have achieved is only the first step. There is a long road ahead of us, and many challenges await. But we are confident and fully committed to our aim of promoting Chinese medicine to the world, so that it is not only the Chinese that benefit from this ancient wisdom.”

"Prof. Song Ke: Simply brilliant."

"Asante and Prof. Ke have certainly extended my life, and probably saved it. The fact that I still travel nearly 500 miles (round trip) to see him is testimony to my faith in him and Traditional Chinese Medicine."
- Simon Perkins, Derbyshire, UK
"If you've been looking fo a one-stop shop for all things TCM (traditional chinese medicine), one address worth checking out is the Asante Academy clinic in north London"
- Shape Magazine, London
"Tried and tested over 5000 years with a minimum of side effects, small wonder it's so popular today. Run by Prof. Song Xuan Ke and allied as a teaching centre to Middlesex University, the Asante is open to all"
