Previous Activities in Chinese Medicine in Canberra

Capital Health Centre of Traditional Chinese Medicine (CHC) has been established in Canberra since 2000. In this time, CHC has been a part of the education field contributing to Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) as well as the Multicultural Festival, Woden Seniors Club and many other organisations. As well as our clinical focus, we try to contribute to our community with talks, seminars and demonstrations giving back to the community which supports us. Many of our seminars are open to our clients as well as practitioners and provide a platform for our community to learn and grow as well as feedback to us their needs. Our seminars are not limited to Chinese medicine but include talks by Chiropractors, Radiographers, Communication specialists, Health experts and, into the future, we hope to have other health professions such as Physiotherapists, Mental Health workers, Pharmacists, etc., speak with us to enhance our knowledge of health in the Australian context and how we as Chinese medicine practitioners can work together for the good of the community.
