Where to Find Us and
What To Expect

A TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) student clinic supervised by licensed practitioners is a dynamic and educational environment where students studying Traditional Chinese Medicine can gain hands-on experience under the guidance of experienced professionals. This clinic serves as a bridge between classroom learning and real-world practice, providing both students and patients with valuable opportunities for growth and healing.


In a TCM student clinic, students have the chance to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical setting. Under the watchful eye of licensed TCM practitioners, students conduct consultations, perform diagnostic assessments, and create individualized treatment plans for patients. These treatment plans often include a combination of acupuncture, herbal remedies, dietary advice, and other traditional therapies. The licensed practitioners provide guidance and oversight, ensuring that students are delivering safe and effective care.
