TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)

In the German part of my homepage there is a large section on TCM. The reason for this is the growing demand for this particular way of treatment. A few explanations for those who are not familiar with TCM:

Contrary to popular belief acupuncture is not Chinese Medicine.

In China the treatment with needles only makes up for a small part of the traditional medicine (maybe around 20%). The most important part of the tratment is achieved by herbal therapy.

Additionally dietary advice, Qi Gong/Tai Qi, and Tuina (a type of physiotherapy) are being used.

I started training in Acupuncture about 12 years ago, but was never satisfied with the possibilities.
Finally in 2003 I got to know a fellow doctor and now close friend who showed me the real potential of the system. Ever since I have been busily training to accomplish mastership in the complex matter of TCM. Fortunately the most diligent medical organisation for TCM is located in Munich. This provides me with the possibility to regularly exchange views and learn more with and from my colleagues. In 2007 I trained in Hangzhou, China.
