What is Medical Qigong?
Our Acupuncture students come from all walks of life, from 21 to 70 years of age and and, so far, from 30 different countries.
Health Promoting Qigong
The College offers short weekend courses in Health-promoting Qigong 2 or 3 times each year. These are open to all adult members of the public.
The ICTCM was set up in 1983, in Dublin, Ireland, to help satisfy the growing demand for safe alternative healthcare. It was the first College in Ireland devoted to the teaching of Chinese medicine, according to the Classical Traditions of TCM, as taught in China. All teaching material in the College is based upon clearly documented classical Chinese medical texts, which provides a theoretically secure base for establishing sound clinical practice.
We are now accepting applications, for the 2019 academic year, for the Licentiate in TCM, our professional Acupuncture training programme, which starts in October every year.
