Pulse Diagnosis in the Clinic

The ICTCM was one of the first independent colleges in Ireland to get a website.  So many years ago!

Now we are in the process, yet again, of updating the look of our site to make it more user-friendly for those using mobile devices.

We want it to be easy for you to find out about the courses we offer.

These include:

  • Profession Acupuncture Training and
  • Postgraduate programmes.

Qigong in Macao and Ireland



During our recent visit to Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Macao we were delighted to meet old friends in the TCM and Qigong field, and to make new ones.

At a conference on Health and Longevity the Irish College of TCM’s Director Tom Shanahan received a special award for presenting an outstanding academic paper.

Senior college staff have been training in Medical Qigong with their Chinese Qigong Master Professor Song Xinhong since 2000 and are happy to announce that another Qigong weekend workshop will be running in the college in June.
Book your place now to get the early bird offer.

Professor Song Xinhong was one of the event organisers for this very successful international conference.

Irish College of TCM visits China again



The Irish College of TCM (ICTCM) first visited Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine in 1999. We have returned to our sister University in Guangzhou, with whom we have had a formal Affiliation since 2002, almost every year since then.

Many ICTCM graduates have attended month-long specialist post-graduate courses. The photo above is from the first Medical Qigong visit in 2000 and the photo below shows the 2002 group.

Later this month ICTCM staff will be meeting University officials in Guangzhou to discuss possible advances in the cooperation between the two TCM teaching institutes.

Application for Acupuncture TCM Training


Soon another group of students who are training to be Acupuncture professionals at the Irish College of TCM in Dublin will be Graduating from the Lic.TCM course. Second year students, such as those shown here learning to locate Acupuncture Points on the back, will be going into the Teaching Clinic to do their practical training.
Would you like to be one of the new first year students studying to change career and become an Acupuncture TCM practitioner?
It takes a little under 3 academic years of exciting, sometime challenging and always interesting part time study.
We are now accepting applications for the October 2018 start date.
