TCM Congress

Krakow, October 13-15, 2023

We invite you to the 5th International Congress of Chinese Medicine organized by the Polish Society of Traditional Chinese Medicine (PTTMC) in Krakow. After a break caused by the pandemic, we await you, eager for being together, listening together to the lectures of our wonderful teachers, exchanging experiences, getting inspired, and having fun together at the banquet. The aim of the Congress is to create a special meeting place for Chinese medicine therapists from various parts of Poland and the world, where they can learn from experienced lecturers and practitioners of TCM, develop and integrate in order to recharge their batteries, fill up with knowledge, and better serve patients in their clinics. The autumn colors, extraordinary streets of Krakow, walks along the Vistula, around the Market Square or Kazimierz create a beautiful scenery for this event. We are extremely happy that extraordinary TCM teachers will come specially to Krakow to share their knowledge and experience, answer questions, and be there for us. We are also happy that we will all meet. We look forward to seeing you in Krakow!!!


Poland and TCM

The practice and education of TCM in Poland have been rapidly developing over the last decade. TCM schools, offering lectures on basic and advanced acupuncture as well as herbal medicine, exist in many major cities: Krakow, Katowice, Wrocław, Poznań, Gdańsk, Bydgoszcz, Warsaw. Clinics and Chinese medicine centers are available in most regions of Poland and are enjoying increasing interest in this form of medicine.


For those interested in exploring medieval Krakow or its surroundings, we can help organize tours around Krakow and Lesser Poland, which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites - such as the Wieliczka Salt Mine, Ojcow National Park, Pieniny, Zakopane, or Tatra Mountains.
