Sabine Schmitz

TCM doctor (M.Med. TCM, China) and Natural health professional with a private practice in the center of Cologne. Author of specialist books and numerous articles on skin health and Chinese herbal medicine. Founder and managing director of CHINAMED COSMETICS® – natural, modern herbal cosmetics based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), made in Germany. Several years of training in Classical Acupuncture, modern Acupuncture methods and Chinese Herbal Medicine in China, Germany and Australia – diploma in each. I successfully completed my studies majoring in Chinese Dermatology (pí fū kē, 皮肤科) with the international title „Master of Medicine“ (M. Med. TCM) at the Zhèjiāng Chinese Medical University (ZCMU) in Hángzhōu, China.

My particular interest in and the focus of my practice lies on Gynecological Disorders (Chinese Gynecology), Fertility Treatment and Skin Diseases (Chinese Dermatology). The greatest influence on my work in Chinese Gynecology until this day has been Steven Clavey (Melbourne, Australia), and in Chinese Dermatology my former tutor Prof. Mǎ Lìlì (Hángzhōu, China). Without their knowledge and expertise my work would certainly not have been the same.

 

Prior to working in the field of TCM, I worked in various fields of Western medicine, including work in hospitals, laboratories and conducting orthodox research, and participated in conducting national and international clinical trials for the pharmaceutical industry, including studies on cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and endocrine disorders for over 15 years. In the table below, you will find the most important stages of my professional education and training in TCM. Shorter courses or conference attendance are not mentioned here.
