2:30 pm - 5:00 pmExploration of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Workshop

Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay – Room TBD

Tickets: $ 20 USD

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a 3,000-year-old holistic system of medicine that treats the mind-body-spirit as a single entity. It is rooted in a unique comprehensive and systematic theoretical framework derived from the Theory of Yin and Yang.

In TCM, a group of techniques and methods is combined to form a complete system for diagnosing diseases. The body’s meridian system is used to explain how organs are interconnected. Internal problems are diagnosed through external observation. Disease is regarded as resulting from the disruption in the flow of qi and the imbalance in the "yin” and "yang.” Chinese physicians look for the underlying causes of the imbalance in the yin and yang. They address how the illness shows itself in a patient and treat the patient as a holistic entity, not just the particular ailment or disease. ~ (Singapore Tourism Board)

An interactive workshop on Traditional Chinese Medicine will be organized, where participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of TCM including Chinese herbalism, acupuncture, massage therapy and TCM dietary therapy. Session will include short presentations by a TCM physician to explain the basic concepts of TCM healthcare, followed by a specific discussion on the TCM approach to addressing knee problems with a focus on acupuncture. Participants will have the opportunity to experience Oriental pulse and tongue diagnosis.

There are a limited number of places; space can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis when you register for the Annual Meeting online. Available only until September 30.
