Covid-19 and Chinese Medicine

Covid-19 "presents with a broad but non-specific spectrum of symptoms" (Robert Koch Institute) and, according to general expert opinion, the health care systems will have to deal with it in the long term. More and more patients are seeking support from Chinese medicine therapists because of problems after a Covid-19 infection (Post-Covid or Long-Covid), or also in acute cases where treatment is often only possible online.

Free International Online-Symposium

On May 29-30, 2021, practitioners along with lecturers from renowned institutes for Chinese Medicine from Europe and the USA shared their experiences with over 500 participants from all over the world. We looked into studies from Austria and the USA, and listened to case reports of acute, long and post Covid-19 treated with herbs, acupuncture and Tuina. Our starting point was that there are no easy solutions. The number of cases is still small for being able to make general statements from the perspective of Chinese medicine. Due to the huge variety of symptoms, individually tailored treatment approaches are required. But that‘s one of the strengths of Chinese medicine. Another is the rich variety of approaches and styles. We have been very thankful for this opportunity of experiencing this richness in an atmosphere of mutual respect and curiosity.

We thank all speakers, translaters and all other helping hands behind the scenes for making this happen.
