Nǐ hǎo and welcome to my Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practice, based in the heart of Cologne! My name is Sabine Schmitz, and I have been practising TCM for nearly 20 years. I am also a natural health professional, and 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. In addition, I am the founder and CEO of CHINAMED COSMETICS, creating natural, modern skincare by harnessing the power of TCM herbs and wisdom.
In my practice, I specialise in skin diseases (TCM Dermatology), gynaecological disorders (TCM Gynecology), and infertility treatment.
Whatever the reason for your visit, you can trust that you will receive personalised treatment that is entirely tailored to your needs, with a respectful approach.
With over 30 years of combined experience of TCM and various areas of Western medicine, my treatment methods are holistic and entirely natural, whether it’s through Chinese herbs or acupuncture. Through TCM, with its manifold treatment modalities, I offer the perfect supplement – or alternative – to conventional medicine.
My practice focuses on Skin Diseases (TCM Dermatology), Gynecological Disorders (TCM Gynecology and TCM obstetrics) and Fertility Treatment. Because of these special interests I have done extensive studies and internships in China and Australia. I am recognised as one of the leading TCM experts in the field of TCM Dermatology and Chinese herbal medicine.
