The study of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) requires many hours of memorization of basic information and mastery of fundamental principles. Students realize soon enough that TCM is a discipline with its own logical and sophisticated system of thought. But the most difficult step is the change in paradigm which is often the major hurdle of students who are steep in the study of western science (notably, medical doctors and allied health professionals). Once achieved, the new (actually, ancient — yet it managed to survive the modern age) paradigm opens new and very useful perspectives in the concept of health and disease. At the SMIC Institute of TCM (Smic Itcm), we have a comprehensive training program and a fully credentialed faculty to help students learn and practice Chinese Medicine with global competence and essential human values.

Patients are seen every day at the teaching clinic of Smic Itcm for our students who are required to finish a total of almost 1,000 hours of internship.

Mr. Lloyd Lester Lee, CAA (Certified Acupuncture Associate) is a graduate of Smic Itcm and is an intern (erratum: I inadvertently described him as a supervisor earlier) in the teaching clinic of the school. He is one of our interns who tirelessly shares his talent, skills, and knowledge.

Sr. Juan (Michelle) and Ms. Kristle, two mentors, listen to an intern discuss a condition of a patient at the teaching clinic of the SMIC Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Smic Itcm).

This is the actual video of one of the Acupuncture techniques to relieve stress and to have better concentration. Thank you to Sr. Michelle SMIC-ITCM Asst. Dean and to our student Mr. M. Calano for volunteering to be a model for this
acupuncture treatment.

  • TCM Nutrition Series #1 GINGER Nutrition is a practical way of taking care of our well-being. For the first offering of this series, our Dean, Sr. Shengrong Liu, SMIC, L.Ac., Dipl. O.M. DAOM is featuring the uses and benefits of Ginger.
  • SMIC-ITCM Nutrition Series 2: CINNAMON. Cinnamon has more medicinal uses and benefits than we thought. And usually what is being used is the outer bark of the tree but according to Sr. Shengrong Liu in TCM there are other parts that are used for therapeutic purposes.
  • TCM Nutrition Series #3-FIELD MINT. In English, Field Mint comes in 2 other names-Wild Mint or Corn Mint. Learn about its therapeutic properties. Additional household tip: Field Mint also helps drive away insects, rats, and mice!
  • SMIC-ITCM Nutrition Series #4- TUMERIC. As it has many health benefits there are also precautionary measures on when and how much Turmeric should be taken.
  • SMIC-ITCM Nutrition Series #5 LONGAN. Longan is not just an auspicious fruit but it also has health benefits. Trivia: The Chinese name for it lóngyǎn (when it is still fresh, not dried) literally means dragon eyes.
  • SMIC-ITCM Nutrition Series #6-HAWTHORN
  • SMIC-ITCM Nutrition Series #7-GOJI BERRIES. Goji berries or wolfberries are the red raisin-like dried fruit we see in Chinese groceries and drugstores. They have a sweet, slightly sour taste.
