Covid-Entry and Test Regulations

Dear Colleagues!

We cordially invite you to our 18th International TCM Congress.

This year's congress is dedicated to ​​the heart and in particular to the unity of body and soul in TCM. There will be lectures and workshops covering  all areas of classical TCM, as well as  contributions from the areas of auriculomedicine, science and research, western herbs and other topics that complete our congress. 

Why the main topic of body and soul?

Due to our fast-moving time and to the fact, that more patients dare to address mental problems and openly talk about them, patients with mental illnesses are more and more common in our practices. We can provide very good support with the methods of TCM or auriculomedicine, quasi as a non-verbal path between psyche and soul.

The importance of the psyche in medicine is generally increasing - chronic diseases such as chronic pain disorders cannot be treated at all without treating the psychological aspect. Already 2000 years ago TCM described the inseparable connection of body and soul.

The spectrum of lecture and workshop topics ranges from sleep disorders, depression, burn-out to child ADD. Also other topics such as menopausal symptoms, mitochondrial medicine, psychological problems with fertility disorders and much more are also covered. Choose from our wide range of workshops, that will definitely enrich your work.

Special lectures for midwives as well as the nutrition day of the association g5e will also take place.

We are proud to announce that we have been able to attract a large number of international speakers who have either never or rarely performed in Austria.For years, the TAO Congress has been the largest annual TCM event in Austria.

Take advantage of this opportunity - unique in Austria - to experience TCM, feel the cosy atmosphere and the inspiring ambiance of our TAO Congress. Do further training in small groups, in which you still have the opportunity to speak to the lecturer personally, meet colleagues and make friends for professional exchange or for a leisurely conversation, and last  but not least enjoy our beautiful town Graz and its surrounding (for example the vineyards in Southern Styria).

Come to this special event and you will feel it - TAO: Traditional - Amicable - “Oesterreichisch”
