About New York College of Traditional Chinese Medicine
NYCTCM concentrates on authentic Chinese medicine
I graduated from NYCTCM's acupuncture program in 2005 and began a successful practice specializing in internal and chronic disorders such as stroke, Parkinson's, and cancer treatment support. I gradually felt a need to supplement my knowledge of acupuncture with that of herbs, so returned to NYCTCM in 2007 to work towards my Oriental Medicine Degree.
Why did I choose NYCTCM? Several main reasons - first, the teachers have a high level of training and experience gained in both China and the U.S. and this carries over in the interactions of the classroom and the clinic; second, the concentration is on authentic Chinese medicine as opposed to the mixture of techniques taught at most schools; and third, the whole complement of skills is taught - acupuncture, herbs, and tui na massage - which is extremely useful when it comes to building one's own practice.
