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

Sabine Schmitz TCM Therapeutin

Nǐ hǎo and welcome to my Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice in the heart of Cologne. I’m Sabine Schmitz, a TCM practitioner (M.Med. TCM, China), Natural health professional, author of the best-selling TCM Dermatology handbook series on Psoriasis, Acne and Rosacea, the first handbook series dedicated specifically to skin diseases outside of China; as well as founder and CEO of CHINAMED COSMETICS, natural, modern skin care with highly potent TCM herbs. 


I have been practicing TCM since 2004. In practice, I do specialize in skin diseases (TCM Dermatology), gynecological disorders (TCM Gynecology), and infertility treatment. 

With over 30 years of experience, consisting of TCM and various areas of Western medicine, I offer you a medical approach, which is proven but natural, and even more importantly individually tailored to treat your medical condition.


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.


You can book an appointment with me either by contacting my practice at 0221-16916738 or send an email.



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”.
