Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture practice in Cologne.

Sabine Schmitz TCM Therapeutin

Nǐ hǎo and welcome, I offer a medical approach, which is proven but natural, and even more importantly individually tailored to treat your medical condition.


Today’s TCM is the result of over three thousand years of development of medical treatments, such as Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. It is no exaggeration to claim that TCM is a profound and established medical method to treat various medical conditions.

TCM with its manifold treatment modalities provides a clearly structured concept as an alternative or supplement to conventional medicine in a way that is more natural, personalized, and holistic. With my expertise in TCM and many years of experience in various areas of conventional medicine, I offer you a natural and effective approach for your individual treatment.

The focus of my practice is in Gynecological Disorders (Chinese Gynecology and Chinese obstetrics), Fertility Treatment and Skin Diseases (Chinese Dermatology). Because of these special interests I have done extensive studies and internships in China and Australia. Of course, patients with more general complaints are also welcome!



My treatment in practice includes all treatment methods associated with Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). These include Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine but also Cupping, Moxibustion, Gua Sha and Chinese Nutritional Therapy. All these methods are described in detail under the menu item “treatment methods”.
