(CUSTCM) is a newly established society which focuses on the modern application of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) as well as the scientific explanation behind the practices. We aim to promote awareness and interest of public towards TCM, especially among those who are currently involved in the fields of medicine and natural science; as well as provide an informed starting point for those are already interested. We believe that there are yet so many possibilities to be explored from TCM, many of which may provide solutions for the obstacles western medicine are facing today.

Recorded evidences have revealed that the practice of TCM was originated over two thousand years ago, making it one of the oldest medical systems still widely practiced today. Modern TCM is a systematic approach involving the individual or combined therapies of Tuina(therapeutic message), acupuncture, and Chinese herbal medicine.

It has been revealed that the pain-relieving effect of acupuncture involves the release of endorphin from neurons in the pain-transmitting neural pathway. However, many other practices also have clinically significant effect but lack evidential scientific explanation due to limited technology or research; this has resulted in TCM to be considered as a form of alternative medicine beside the orthodox medicine. We passionately believe that despite the differences between the beliefs on which the two are based on, the most fundamental scientific explanation behind the two is ubiquitous.

We have prepared a series of activities for our members including talks from current researchers and experienced practitioners, and demonstrations of various TCM techniques. We are also hoping to hold formals and a tea party so you can share your opinion among fellow members while having fun at the same time.
