Irish College of Traditional Chinese Medicine

ICTCM House, Dublin City North, Dublin, Ireland

We welcome part time students from Ireland, the UK and across Europe to our professional Acupuncture TCM training – the Licentiate programme.

Students from any background (including a non-medical one) can, on graduation from the part-time, 3 year Licentiate programme, set up in practice as qualified Acupuncture TCM Professionals.

Graduates wishing to gain a Masters degree can, after only 5 years part time study (3 years on the Licentiate Programme and 2 years on the Masters Programme) gain an internationally recognised Masters Degree in Chinese Medicine conferred by Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine (GUCM).

Acupuncture and TCM is the principle form of medical care available to a large portion of the world’s population. Traditional Chinese Medicine, through the use of Acupuncture and other classical medical therapies such as Chinese Herbal Medicine and Medical Qigong, aims to establish energetic harmony in the whole person and thereby not only treat illness but also promote active health and vitality and thereby increase resistance to disease.

From its very ancient origins such medicine has been at once both preventative and curative, the ideal being to so strengthen the person’s overall health and well-being that they do not get sick in the first place, or if they do fall ill to speed their recovery. One of the most attractive and distinctive features of TCM is that, from its earliest days, it has emphasised the promotion of positive health and has not restricted itself merely to the treatment of disease.

The scope and range of ailments amenable to TCM care is enormous. An indication of their type and variety can best be gleaned from looking at the booklet “Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine”, available from the ICTCM. More information on conditions treated is available here.

All ages of client can be catered to, from the tiny infant to the very old. Pregnant women are prime candidates for TCM and much can be done to promote both ante-natal and post-natal care of mother and baby. Those properly qualified can treat animals with TCM therapy.

TCM in general, including Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Medical Qigong can be combined with, or used alongside, other medical therapies and disciplines, such as western medicine.
