About: The College of Integrated Chinese Medicine
The college combines two main styles of practice: Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Five Element treats the patient’s deepest constitutional imbalance while TCM treats physical illnesses. This combination allows patients to be treated effectively and holistically, emotionally and physically.

Chinese Medicine Theory. Understanding the original Chinese perspective on how the body and mind work together.
Conventional Medical Sciences. Connecting Western and Chinese medicine, including anatomy, physiology, pathology and pharmacology.
