Humber is preparing to hold a special seminar on Wednesdays this winter all about its traditional Chinese medicine program.

The TZU CHI Clinic has been at Humber since 2016.

Whether you are a student who is feeling sore from a workout or a staff who is just feeling a bit tired Managing Director Doctor Michael Chung says this kind of treatment is very helpful for everyone.

Established in 1966 and headquartered in Taiwan, the Tzu Chi Foundation is an international charitable organization.

“Chinese medicine is not just one single protocol, it consists of how to adjust your diet, massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies that helps people distress,” he said.

Chung said the TZU CHI Clinic of Chinese traditional medicine is a professional one that also runs a student placement too meaning that you can be treated by a student in training under the supervision of a professional.

When asked how students in particular respond to the needle treatment aka acupuncture the physician replied “you will be surprised we are fully booked for this.”

As for pricing Chung said “students pay only $10 per session and staff just $20 as opposed to $60 or $80 in a regular clinic and the proceeds will help the trainees improve their knowledge of learning.”

The clinic also offers a special service called cupping which Chung explains is a noninvasive treatment used by some gold medal winning athletes like Michael Phelps to improve their muscle strength and recover from injuries.

The clinic which is located at C105 or in the C building at the North campus.

The free seminars are designed to explain what Chinese medicine is all about and how it can help people to distress.
