The Mediterranean Regional Centre for Traditional Chinese Medicine
The Mediterranean Regional Centre for Traditional Chinese Medicine (MRCTCM) was officially established in 1994 jointly by the Chinese Government and the Maltese Government. Jiangsu Commission of Health of China’s Eastern Jiangsu Province is responsible for dispatching medical teams to the Centre annually.
Excellent services, expert and effective treatment have helped the Centre earn a good reputation among the Maltese and people of other nationalities, and also greatly expanded the influence of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Malta and beyond.
So far, 14 medical teams have served in the MRCTCM over the past 26 years, receiving a total of nearly 210,000 patients including local Maltese people as well as foreign and Chinese communities residing in Malta. The Centre has also provided treatment to the highest officials in the country.
The doctors from the MRCTCM also work outside the Centre, running outpatient services at the two State hospitals respectively in Malta and Gozo. When opened in 2008, the Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic at Mater Dei Hospital was the first of its kind at a European public hospital.
The services we provide include acupuncture, massage, cupping, cervical and pelvic traction, ear press and other physical therapy. People suffering from diseases such as slip disc, cervical spondylosis, sciatica, acute or chronic sprain, frozen shoulder, soft tissue contusion, arthritis, fibromyalgia, headache, stomachache, constipation, poor digestion, sequelae of wind-stroke, insomnia, irregular menstruation, menopausal syndrome, urinary tract infection, depression, general weakness, stress and strains, eczema, allergic dermatitis, obesity, etc. can benefit from our services.
Apart from providing medical services, the MRCTCM is also tasked with important educational and training missions, such as holding lectures on Traditional Chinese Medicine and courses on Chinese self-massage. The MRCTCM has also become the teaching base for some Chinese medicine colleges in Europe.
